One Day Out to HSM3! I Have My Tickets!!

Well, the day has finally come - High School Musical 3 premiere tomorrow!! I can't wait. Seems like it has been so long yet it also came quickly. I saw that Time Magazine didn't give it a great review but what do they know! Here's a quote:

High School Musical 3 Dance"Anyone over nine can expect the movie's antiseptic energy to get enervating; G rating can be grating. The long dialogue scenes, meant to create the Act II Troy-Gab separation that will be resolved in Act III, often devolve into logorrhea. Tip to parents and kids: when the two leads start talking seriously, go for your popcorn and pee breaks."

Blah, Blah, Blah - why does a Time Magazine reviewer even care. I know this will be great. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune also gave it a so-so review:

"So in place of songs that illuminate character, frame a situation or advance the story — as in 'Grease,' 'Hairspray' and classic Disney musicals — we get bland ballads with lots of heart, but little personality. They're not lyrically distinguished or melodically memorable. They don't feel like they're expressing the characters' deepest feelings. But they're upbeat."

E Online gives a grade of B - which is bit better in the review:

"Unfortunately, while everyone was busy making superawesome dance sequences, someone let the ball drop on the story. HSM proper is all about Efron's Troy Bolton's desire to sing in addition to being a star basketball player. In No. 2, Troy is seduced by a richer and more powerful class, which he has to overcome in order to be true to himself and his friends."

Well, it looks like the mass media doesn't get what kids really want these days - something fun, musical, safe and away from the crap of what we get exposed to!

The Ottawa Citizen had some interesting comments:

"But in its style, High School Musical 3 also evokes memories of other great musical directors and choreographers - Vincente Minnelli, Bob Fosse Jerome Robbins, Michael Kidd - and also such legendary performers as Astaire and Gene Kelly.

'Gene Kelly was my mentor and my teacher,' Ortega tells Canwest News Service. The quiet-spoken 58-year-old filmmaker had loved old movie musicals from childhood, but it was Kelly - with whom he worked in the 1980 Xanadu - who had the biggest impact on him.

'It was meeting Gene and having Gene take time out of his life for me that sort of really helped me come to understand the importance that the director and choreographer had," says Ortega, who as a child performed in stage musicals like Oliver! and then made his first impact as an adult choreographing hit movies like Dirty Dancing and St Elmo's Fire.'"

I just can't wait - I'm sure I'll see it more than once. I hope everyone here makes some comments about it. Thanks for reading my blog over the last couple of years!

Zac Efron on the Cover of Teen Vogue

BuddyTV reported that in the upcoming October issue of Teen Vogue, HSM lead Zac Efron will be the cover article. In a behind the scenes video on the magazine's website he noted, "I'm glad that someone is honoring the new and up-and-coming stars. I think there's a lot of new talent coming up. I'm proud to be representing!"

But Zac is part of that new talent bring amazing success to the Disney empire and becoming one of the most popular name in teen history. Even with that he still has some interest in the past - "I love Fred Estaire, Gene Kelly, Donald O'Connor... I could go on for days with old Hollywood," he said.

But, much like the hollywood jet setters of the past he's part of the current media success, "I'm growing up under a magnifying glass, and I just try to rise above it and live my life." This has been a burden as well leaving little privacy he told Teen Vogue, "You don't realize until it's gone, but it is so important to feel normal."

With the upcoming October release of High School Musical 3 Efron feels the pressure - a time to break his teen image to something more adult. Much like HSM3 he has similar questions, "The stakes are higher because there are real decisions to be made. What college are you going to? What happens to the girl? It's fun watching Troy grow into a man!"

Teen Vogue will reach newsstands on September 9th.

End of the Road for Troy and Gabriella

The time of graduation in HSM3 means more than just going to college for the High School Musical cast. "This is probably going to be the last one for a lot of the cast," Zac Efron said. "It’s graduation, a lot of us have to move on. Everything's been stepped up a few notches, all the dances, and I think the songs are pretty catchy this time around."

With only five months to go until the Disney cast graduates, the HSM franchise is not completely out of our lives. "High School Musical 4" was announced recently and I'm sure we'll see a lot of Zac Efron, Vannesa Anne Hudgens and the rest of the cast in many other movies.

"It’s kind of an honor to have ever been a part of it," Efron said. "So I’m thrilled just to have done it, the fanbase that it created. We’re making a great third film and I think it’s going to be a great legacy to leave for the Wildcats."

High School Musical 4 Now Confirmed!

Disney has confirmed that High School Musical 4 is now in the works! "We are writing 'High School Musical 4,' " Disney Channel Worldwide president Rich Ross said Tuesday after a presentation at a midtown Manhattan recording studio.

However, it is not known who or what part of the cast will come back for the 2009 HSM4. "Are we going to have all the cast back? Probably not," Ross said. "Will we have some of them? I hope so."

"We have learned that just putting a number next to a title is a very old idea," Ross said. "We have to have a new story."

Let's hope it happens!

High School Musical 3 Starts Filming Soon

The Associated Press reported that "High School Musical 3" will start production in Salt Lake City in the next weeks. Filming during the actual school year at the real East High, school officials will be balancing production teams with students thoughout the day.

Jason Olsen, a School District spokesman says production staff will begin in a couple weeks with filming beginning at the end of the month. To keep student disruptions down much of the filming for "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" will take place before and after school.

HSM3 is projected to cost $13 million.

The excitement is building again - I can't wait!

Busy, Busy Ashley Tisdale

Ashley Tisdale is a busy person these days. With a second album in the works, HSM3 and her Degree Girl deoderant pitches she's on an amazing public blitz. With HSM3 filming this month she'll be in high demand.

Speaking to TV Guide she reflected on her role in HSM3: "I don’t know much, because I haven’t read the script yet! But I have recorded the songs, so I do know a little bit about it. It is senior year, so there’s going to be graduation and prom, but I can’t spill much else."

"All the music is great. They’re much bigger productions this time — they’re huge — so it’s going to be really exciting."

"I think every single moment with High School Musical was nerve-racking and exciting as well. It was a whole snowball effect, starting with the ratings themselves, and then going into the Billboard charts and getting a Billboard Award for the No. 1 album of the year. Every single moment of High School Musical was an OMG moment. It’s been a crazy ride."

"I would love for Johnny Depp to be in it. He did say in an interview that his kids love High School Musical and he wouldn’t mind doing a cameo. We should really jump on that one." Ashley said to Extra.

Vanessa Hudgens not Happy About Ali Lohan

Sounds like the rumors might be true that Vanessa Hudgens is steaming about Ali Lohan auditioning for High School Musical 3: Senior Year.

The role she auditioned for is a younger copy of Sharpay, a 'spoilt little princess' who will be cast to play opposite Zac Efron.

Vanessa Hudgens supposedly said that the Lohan family brings bad press where ever they go even though Ali may not be like Lindsay.

No doubt the Lohan curse would only hurt High School Musical 3 and Disney's reputation especially after the Zoey 101 problems. I hope they stay away as far as they can!

High School Musical 3 - 245 Days and Counting to the End

It seems that we've reached the ultimate news that, unfortunately, the High School Musical series will be coming to a close this year. Kenny Ortega, the highly successful director of all three HSM stories noted, "This will be our last time together, and I love working with these kids so much." It looks like there won't be a High School Musical 4 in our future (at least with these actors and director).

High School Musical 3: Senior YearWith October 24, 2008 approaching quickly, Disney has one last chance to push the concept, cast and crew into super-stardom. (I wouldn't be too sure about that. If the film is a success there's no telling what kinds of spin-offs there might be - reunions, dramas, etc.)

In High School Musical 3:Senior Year the plan is to have Troy and Gabriella at a crossroads in their relationship with separation looming - "facing the prospect of being separated from one another as they head off in different directions to college. Joined by the rest of the Wildcats, they stage an elaborate spring musical reflecting their experiences, hopes and fears about their future."

This should be great - but a sad moment to know that we're at only 245 days and counting til the end.

Ali Lohan Auditioning for HSM3

14 year old younger sister of Lindsay Lohan, Ali Lohan is currently trying to audition for a part on High School Musical 3 reports E!. Apparently she is up for a part as a 'spoiled little princess' pitting her as a Sharpay (Ashley Tisdale) in training.

Having produced a Christmas CD last year, Lohan can sing in some role on HSM3. Whether she can dance and act is, of course, another question.

I hate to see the Lohans image tarnishing the High School Musical clean family fun. But, you be the judge.

High School Musical 3 is a Go!!

Yes, it was confirmed yesterday by Disney that High School Musical 3: Senior Year is now officially going to happen! Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman will be reunited again on the big screen for a feature release.

The production schedule is tentatively set to start this spring under the direction again by Kenny Ortega and screenplay writer, Peter Barsocchini, who wrote the scripts for the Disney Channel Original Movies, High School Musical and High School Musical 2. The current release date is set for October 24th, 2008!

Oren Aviv, president of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Production said, "We’re thrilled to have all of the talented cast members who helped to make ‘High School Musical’ such an incredible phenomenon joining us for this big screen motion picture event. They’ve developed a tremendous following with fans all over the world and ‘High School Musical 3: Senior Year’ takes these popular characters in some intriguing and entertaining new directions. Clearly, the music, spirit and personalities in these films have touched audiences in a very special way, and this latest musical adventure delivers lots of great new entertainment on an even grander scale. Kenny Ortega brings his enormous talents to this project and Peter Barsocchini has come up with a wonderfully inventive script that delivers plenty of delights and surprises."

With senior year and graduation being the main theme you can only guess that the future is uncertain for the East High Wildcats; will they split up for college? Is there one more musical left for them?

Ashley Tisdale, who stars as the diva Sharpay said she was "excited" at the news. "But it's going to be sad. It seems like it will be graduation and I'll be crying while we're filming," she explained.

"The success of this franchise has been nothing short of amazing. We’re thrilled with the connection fans have to the characters, and we’re very excited to see the High School Musical story continue on the big screen." noted Rich Ross, president, Disney Channels Worldwide.
