Well, looks like it’s singin’ and dancin’ week here on the OWL blog. Or, maybe it’s dancin’ and singin’ week…. Either way, I got to check out a sneak preview of High School Musical 3 on Wednesday, and I thought I’d give you guys the heads up.
First off, a confession: I’ve never seen High School Musical. I’ve seen most of High School Musical 2, and I thought it was really weird that Troy had so much trouble making decisions and putting his friends first. What kind of a goof chooses playing pick-up basketball over every friendship he has? A little odd, if you ask me.
Anyway, Troy (played by über-star Zac Efron) has his priorities back in check for this new movie. They’re all about to graduate and he’s clearly… choosing basketball again at the expense of his bigger goals. What’s up with this guy? He should choose theatre! It’s so obvious.
The other problem for Troy is that his girlfriend Gabriella (Vanessa Hudgens) plans to move away for college, and her move might come even sooner than he thinks. Sharpay (Ashley Tisdale), meanwhile, tries all movie to sabotage everyone else and put the spotlight on herself. (Again.)
So, as you might guess, there’s some singing about being scared about the future. There’s some singing about wanting to stay young, etc. Just for the record: I think my favourite song is “High School Musical,” the last one in the movie.
In summation, if you’re a fan of the High School Musical series, you’re going to LOVE this movie. The songs are pretty catchy, the choreography (ding, ding, ding!: it’s choreography week on the OWL blog!) is great, and the characters are… still around. Plus, the series has finally made it to the big screen. If you’re not a fan, though, this movie probably won’t change your mind.
What do you guys think? Have you seen the first two movies? Are you excited for this one? Let me know in the comments!
Have a great weekend.
P.S. Here is a picture of me with my new friends, Troy and Sharpay.
