Coming to the Disney Channel in 2010: High School Musical 4. Disney Channel said in a statement the story would feature a music- and dance-filled love triangle set against cross-town rivalry between fictional high schools in Albuquerque, N.M. It will introduce a new cast of characters after the fictional "graduation" of the original stars Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale in "High School Musical 3: Senior Year".
My take: It might surprise you, but I enjoyed HSM 1,2,3. I have great concerns for HSM 4 with an all-new cast. Anyone remember "Grease 2?" It was an unqualified disaster. I would hate for the HSM franchise to suffer the same. I think Disney might want to re-think this one and let the HSM series go off into the sunset on a high note.
