The Trailer For The New High School Musical Series Is NOT What We Expected

2 min read

Once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat. 

When we heard that Disney would be remaking High School Musical as a television show we had mixed feelings. 

It’s exciting but why ruin a good (iconic) thing, you know?

Still, we were hopeful the show would be all our young teenage selves could dream of. Now, the trailer for the show has dropped and we have mixed feelings. Because it’s not a remake at all but a weirdly realistic meta world where the main characters are students at the school where the original High School Musical movie was filmed.

Yep. But that’s not it. Just to confuse us even more the students of the school decide to work on a production of…High School Musical

The trailer includes lines like “I’ve seen the original movie 37 times,”

“It would be insane to think I might actually have a shot at playing Gabriella,” 

and “When I heard that the high school where High School Musical was shot had never staged a proaction of High School Musical the musical, I was shocked, inspired, and triggered as a millennial “

Like we said, completely meta and a total mind warp. 

Despite the confusing plot, the tv show actually looks kinda good. We like that Disney hasn’t tried to totally remake the original but reinvented it in a fun way. Plus, it includes all of the original songs so we’re extra keen.
