High School Musical Stars Reunite For TV Special

When Disney Channel’s TV movie High School Musical premiered on Jan. 20, 2006, it was a ratings blockbuster that immediately translated into massive success on Billboard’s music charts.
There were 7.7 million viewers who tuned in to the first broadcast of the musical (a then-record for any Disney Channel telecast), which then led to many repeated airings on the network and further ratings wins. All those eyeballs watching the movie turned to buying and listening to music from the film, which propelled High School Musical up the charts.

The stars of High School Musical are reuniting for a 10th-anniversary tribute to the TV movie.
Actors Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman share memories of the movie when it airs again at 8 p.m. EST Wednesday on the Disney Channel.

The High School Musical reprise comes during a wave of TV musical popularity. NBC has aired a series of live musicals and is aiming to put Hairspray on in December, while Fox is showing a live production of Grease on Jan. 31 and ABC has plans for a Dirty Dancing TV movie.

The Disney movie and its sequel, High School Musical 2 , will be repeated on Thursday and on Sunday, Jan. 24, on Disney Channel. The Freeform cable channel will show High School Musical on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 23 and 24.
