high school musical

It was the movie franchise that captured our heart, minds – AND nurtured our pre-teen and teen musical aspirations. 

But almost ten years after the release of the first High School Musical, the song which was the movie's very cornerstone – Breaking Free – has been largely forgotten by protagonist Zac Efron.

The actor famously played Troy Bolton opposite Vanessa Hudgens – who played Gabriella Montez – in the hugely successful franchise.


But while promoting his latest release, We Are Your Friends, alongside co-star Emily Ratajkowski and director Max Joseph, 27-year-old Zac had an interview with glossy magazine Cosmoploitan.

And during the course of the segment, he found himself at a loss when asked to identify Breaking Free.

"That's High School Musical. Oh wait… the name of the song?" he says lifting his hands to his face in thought. "The pressure's on – Soarin', Flying, is it?" 

"No! Come on, Zac," the interviewer cries out in disgust. 

"Take A Chance?" the actor next offers, before realising: "Breaking Free!" 

Amid much jeering from Emily and Max, Mr Efron protests: "There's a lot – there's three movies of songs!" 

Of course, in contrast, every self-respecting Disney fan can remember and recite the entire HSM soundtrack instantly.

We're going to assume this was all a momentary indiscretion, so we'll forgive Zac this one time.




Justin Martin was arrested after he allegedly got into a gun fight with police officers in Boston earlier this week.

According to reports, police officers from the Boston Police Department arrived at the scene upon hearing gunfire. When they arrived, they said that they found the 21-year-old High School Musical 3 star and another man armed and attempting to flee the scene.

TMZ reported that when police began chasing the suspects the actor, who also starred alongside Denzel Washington in Flight, turned and pointed his gun but did not open fire.

However, his fellow assailant did begin shooting which caused the officers to fire back. The Soloist actor was chased down and was eventually caught and arrested.

Justin was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, carrying a loaded firearm, and two counts of assault by means of a dangerous weapon.

Zac Efron’s former co-star has plead not guilty to all counts and his bail was set at €32,000. His mother spoke to TMZ and said that she is going to try and bail her son out.  



High School Musical star, Corbin Bleu has gotten engaged to his long-term girlfriend, Sasha Nicole Clements.

In what may be the cutest proposal story of all time, Corbin popped the question of a lifetime in front of Cinderella’s Castle at Disney World in Florida.

To make an already impossibly sweet story even sweeter, Corbin presented the ring to Sasha in a glass slipper.

A. Glass. Slipper.

The actor told People magazine how excited he is about the engagement: “I’m very excited to begin this next chapter of my life with the woman who stole my heart.”

The couple have been dating since 2011. 

We can't wait to see the wedding – will it be a High School Musical reunion extravaganza?! We can dream at least…




Zac Efron wants a High School Musical movie return!

And he wants his Bad Neighbours co-star Seth Rogan to produce it.

The 26-year-old actor starred as Troy Bolton in the movie musical franchise, and he insists he is still proud of the role that brought him to global fame.

”I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for High School Musical. I love every fan. And to this day, I sign more High School Musical stuff than anything else. Would I do another? Absolutely,” he said.

”Getting High School Musical was a dream come true. I wasn’t always good at singing and dancing. I was horrible at it until I started training every day. But I loved doing it. I love any challenge,” Zac added.

If Zac does return to the role, he wants Seth Rogen to be the movie’s producer.

He said recently, ”I wish Seth could produce every film I’m in, he kind of just takes the lead he is always setting the pace and the tone for everybody.”



It looks like it might be be a battle of the High School musicians in this awkward love triangle!

It has been reported that Chord Overstreet and his girlfriend, Halston Sage, have split following her appearance at a basketball game with Zac Efron.

Halston and Zac attended the Lakers game on Friday evening and it seems that it may have lead to the break-up of the shirt-term couple.

Chord plays Sam in the popular TV show, Glee, while Zac found fame as Troy in the High School Musical movies.

We think this girl might have a type!





Are Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron planning a reunion?

Vanessa’s long-term boyfriend Austin Butler shouldn’t have anything to worry about however as it is just for another instalment of High School Musical.

Zac Efron hinted that another movie may indeed take place when talking to E!: “We’re all thinking about it … I continue to see all the guys from High School Musical. Every time we do … there’s just this look between us. It’s so cool because we never forget a single moment of that experience.”

High School Musical shot many young stars to fame such as Vanessa, Zac and their friend Ashley Tisdale.



During an interview for his new movie That Awkward Moment, Zac Efron confirmed he’s in talks to appear in the next Star Wars movie.

Zac told journos: “I just went and met with them. So I don’t know. It would be cool. I love [Star Wars movies], I love them, but… who knows?”

Our very own Saoirse Ronan has also auditioned for a role and says Star Wars is “something that everyone’s gone up for,” which means nothing is certain right now.

We’ll definitely be interested to see how this plays out.
