Original High School Musical cast members Vanessa Hudgens, Corbin Bleu, Lucas Grabeel, and Bart Johnson reunite in sweet new images. As one of Disney Channel's most successful original movies, High School Musical is beloved for its catchy songs and standout cast. Released in 2006, the film, which also stars Zac Efron and Ashley Tisdale, served as the breakout appearance for the majority of its cast and went on to spawn two sequels, before the franchise was revived more recently with the release of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.

Some of the original cast of High School Musical have now had a mini-reunion at a recent convention in Paris, as shown in some new images shared on social media. Posted by High School Musical director Kenny Ortega and singer Drew Seeley, who provided the vocals for Efron's character in the first film, the images show Hudgens, Bleu, Grabeel, and Johnson looking incredibly happy to be back together. Seeley sweetly commented that their reunion felt as though "no time has passed" with both photos having sparked a major reaction from High School Musical fans. Check out the images below:

Will There Be A High School Musical 4?

High School Musical tells the story of popular basketball player Troy Bolton (Efron), who falls for the studious transfer student Gabriella Montez (Hudgens) when they are both cast as the leads in the school musical. High School Musical's two subsequent sequels followed their relationship as they progressed through their high school years, with High School Musical 3 having then touched on the lead-up to their graduation. The musical theme, naturally, remained a constant throughout the films. The success of the franchise, alongside the recent surge in movie reboots, has consistently spurred on demands for a High School Musical 4, as audiences are keen to see more of Troy and Gabriella's story.

Unfortunately, no concrete plans for High School Musical 4 have ever been confirmed, but the possibility has not been entirely ruled out, as a number of the film's original cast have expressed a desire to one day return to East High. For now, it appears the closest audiences are likely to come to getting High School Musical 4 is through the spinoff series, HSMTMTS. With Grabeel having returned in season 1 and Bleu in season 3, season 4 of the hit Disney+ show is set to see original cast members Monique Coleman, Alyson Reed, and Kaycee Stroh reunite alongside Grabeel, Bleu, and Johnson, with the storyline set to follow the creation of an in-universe High School Musical 4. Though not an official sequel, this meta approach to the franchise is sure to appease those who have long anticipated another installment.

It's certainly exciting to see the High School Musical stars reunited once again, although these photos are sure to fuel hopes for a future High School Musical installment featuring the entire original cast. These new images are also likely to spark speculation that Hudgens could also be returning for HSMTMTS' upcoming original cast reunion, though nothing has been confirmed at this stage. For now, audiences will continue to delight in this sweet High School Musical reunion and hope there are even more exciting plans on the horizon.
