Brand new songs and acoustic reinterpretations of songs from the original High School Musical ang mapapakinggan sa sisimulan na series ng Disney Channel.
"The challenge we handed the creative team was Herculean. How do you recapture the joy and the magic of the original High School Musical movie…and simultaneously reimagine it completely?" sey ni Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide.
Dagdag pa niya: "That's like trying to solve a Rubik's Cube blindfolded. And Tim and Oliver – and this amazingly talented and diverse cast and crew – have done exactly that!"
Ayon naman sa senior vice president of content at Disney+ na si Agnes Chu:
"We are truly excited about this extremely talented cast and the fresh and contemporary take on this globally beloved franchise. From the music and dance, to the characters and hilarious meta references, there is something here for fans of the originals, as well as people who are new to East High. It's going to be an unforgettable viewing experience for Disney+ subscribers."
