Zac Efron recently told E! News that he’s open to a “High School Musical” film reboot. Efron played the film’s character Troy Bolton in the 2006 Disney Channel original movie, which spawned two sequels in 2007 and 2008.
“Of course, of course,” Efron said when asked about reprising Troy Bolton in a “High School Musical” reboot. “I mean, to have an opportunity in any form to go back and work with that team would be so amazing. My heart is still there. That would be incredible. I hope it happens.”
In 2019, Disney+ rebooted the franchise with “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” which centers on a group of teenage musical theater lovers who decide to mount a production of “High School Musical.” The show helped spark the career of pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo and is currently in production of its third season.
Efron can be seen next in Firestarter which hits theaters on May 13 and premieres on Peacock the same day.
