With Twilight and its stars threatening to totally overtake High School Musical in the Tweeniverse, the Disney franchise came out today with a couple of tidbits regarding the fourth film in this franchise:

ā€œIā€™m excited to be part of a franchise that, thematically, encourages kids to believe in themselves," said Hornaday, who directed world tours for Madonna and the Backstreet Boys. "Like the first three movies, my goal is to keep the art form of the traditional musical alive, yet bring a contemporary emotional response to the story and its characters through song and dance.ā€

Reportedly, High School Musical 4, will center around a love triangle set against the cross-town school rivalry between the East High Wildcats and West High Knights.

I like the idea of dorothy kee it can be the best to make a reunion movie with a new story. Because the cast and their passion was the best and it was like to relate with.

I think its so messed upthat they will not have troy and gabriella. Thats what high school musical was about. Their love and singing and their passions. If troy and gabriella are not going to be in HSM4 then , i would recommend NOT to make the 4th movie. You will get many complaints and disappointments from all HSM fans.

I think that hsm4 will not be the same without the same characters and is doing nothiung but wasting time. U should make a hsm class reunion with all the same characters. I have all the movies and books but if the same cast isn't in hsm 4 I will not waste my time!!!!!!
