This Friday, folks.

High School Musical 3: Senior Year opens in theaters this Friday.

While we assume most fans have taken the week off to line up for tickets, we hope a few out there are still privy to an Internet connection.

If so, they can watch the video below. It's an edition of Moviefone's "Unscripted" that showcases Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Corbin Bleu and Ashley Tisdale sitting around and asking one another questions about the movie. Yes, it's as cool as it sounds...

Darn the French.

High School Musical fans in Paris not only got to meet and greet the members of this franchise's cast earlier in the week, but High School Musical 3: Senior Year will premiere two days earlier in Europe than in the United States.

Life isn't fair sometimes, but at least we can still enjoy images of Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale overseas:

We know, we know. High School Musical 3 doesn't come out for another two months.

Still, the following rumor about High School Musical 4 is too exciting not to pass along:

Lost in Zac's Eyes

According to Life and Style Weekly, Zac Efron might actually reprise his role as Troy Bolton in a fourth installment of the franchise that made him famous. The great-haired actor had originally said this fall's big screen version of the film would be his last, but that celebrity gossip magazine reports that it might come down to salary.

"Zac is thinking in the $8 million to $10 million range, but it depends on how the movie opens and how desperately they want him back,” a source told the publication.

Stop staring at a shirtless, wet Zac Efron and focus on the fact that he might return for High School Musical 4.

High School Musical 3 may be focused on the group's graduation, but Disney is still optimistic it can get recruit a few major cast members to return. Money does talk, after all.

"Are we going to have all the cast back? Probably not," Disney Channel Worldwide president Rich Ross said in April when the third movie was first announced. "Will we have some of them? I hope so.

Warning: the following pictures reveal a couple High School Musical 3 spoilers.

Specifically, a few make the outcome of the Wildcats' championship basketball game rather obvious.

Enlarge them at your own risk, but also keep in mind that they all feature Zac Efron in the role of Troy Bolton. In other words: they may spoil a story line, but they're freakin' gorgeous! For example:

Zac Efron: The ultmate (cute!!!!) close-up.

We'll give you a few minutes to stare at the photo above and then get your heart rate back to normal...

Once you've recovered from the image of Efron sweaty and intense, check out the following High School Muscial 3 pics. They feature Efron and real-life girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens in the roles that made them famous:

Zac Efron may have won an MTV Movie Award this week for his performance in Hairspray, but the beloved teen star was focused on his next role when interviewed by People.

He'll be taking on Troy Bolton again in High School Musical 3: Senior Year.

"It felt like the first two movies all over again. We just kind of can't go wrong with Kenny Ortega as our director and leader and our great cast and crew. We've got no squabbles to get through," Efron said, referring to the third installment of the franchise, which will hit theaters in October.

If Efron, or costars such as Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel, have any trepidation about the filming the blockbuster, it doesn't show.

"Everything's been stepped up a few notches, all the dances, and I think the songs are pretty catchy this time around. And it's our senior year, so we've got graduation and prom to look forward to. All fun things to have in a movie," Zac said.

So, will you be seeing High School Musical 3?

To many, this might be akin to asking which is their favorite child.

Nevertheless, it's an issue that must be broached, especially as talk of High School Musical 4 heats up: Who is your favorite character from the franchise?

Take a look at the photo below and make your decision.

Clockwise, from top left: Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Lucas Grabeel, Ashley Tisdale and Corbin Bleu. Leave a comment and let us know which is your favorite. You can only choose one!

Here's the good news, High School Musical fans: the cast of your favorite TV movie really does get along well.

"High School Musical' is unlike anything. No one can fully understand. It's just all of us in a group having fun," Zac Efron recently told MTV. "We really became best friends during this project, the whole cast. It's like not even work. We just have the time of our lives out there."

Hottest Under 25

Now, though, prepare yourselves for the awful news: High School Musical 3 will be the final performance for these stars together.

"This is going to be the farewell to the East High Wildcats for a while. Senior year, graduation, this movie is the climax, it's the third act, this is the legacy that we leave on East High," Efron said. "I think it's going to be a good way to go out with a bang."

Fortunately, we'll still be able to ogle Zac in upcoming movies such as Me and Orson Welles and Seventeen.

Get excited, High School Musical fans:

The Disney Channel is airing a special dance-along version of the sequel on Sept. 8. The hosts will include the modern day Brangelina, Zanessa (Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens.)

Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron

Efron, Hudgens and company â€" Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman, Olesya Rulin, KayCee Stroh, Chris Warren, Jr. and Ryne Sanborn â€" will do more than merely host the movie: they'll instruct viewers on how to imitate their dances during the opening and closing numbers.

It's the airing of a lifetime.

"Our viewers made dance moves from the first movie iconic, and we're pleased to once again provide them with an opportunity to learn the new dance moves from HSM2," Disney Channel Worldwide senior VP Scott Garner said in a statement.

We can only imagine how excited Jodie Sweetin, the former host of Pants Off/Dance Off, is about this news.

High School Musical without Zac Efron would be like Friday Night Lights without Kyle Chandler.

Therefore, after the record-setting peformance of High School Musical 2, the only question fans care about is:

Zac, Down Under

Will Zac Efron sign on for High School Musical 3?

Here's the celebrity gossip we have on the topic: in February, plans were set in motion for a Halloween-themed feature film the studio dubbed Haunted High School Musical. Of course, somewhere between then and now, this plan was scraped.

Today, Disney says it will instead focus on the senior year of key characters (such as the one played by Corbin Bleu) at East High to complete this film's triology. The original writer from the first two films, Peter Barsocchini, is writing the script. The original producers and director Kenny Ortega are also on board.

As far as Zac, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale are concerned, Disney released the following statement:

"There is no contractual obligation for any of the cast members to return. That said, we are in active negotiations with all the principle cast members and are feeling optimistic."

When Billy Bush asked Zac last week at the High School Musical 2 premiere about another installment, the golden boy replied: "A third movie would be a dream come true. Finishing High School Musical with a third movie, that would be in theaters, is just sort of a tribute to everything we kind of did here."

Bottom line: Don't worry, ladies. Efron will return. You haven't seen Daniel Radcliffe bail on Harry Potter, have you?

Everything's been stepped up a few notches, all the dances, and I think the songs are pretty catchy this time around. And it's our senior year, so we've got graduation and prom to look forward to. All fun things to have in a movie.

Zac Efron [on High School Musical 3]

You never know with teenage girls. It's funny. But they're always, most of the time they're pretty respectful, and I love 'em. I'm very grateful.
