Please tell me that I’m not the only one in this school that is obsessed with High School Musical. Those movies were my childhood. That cast and movie franchise made my childhood amazing. I can’t even believe that it has been 10 years since High School Musical premiered. It feels like it was just yesterday.
On January 20, 2016, Disney Channel hosted a High School Musical reunion. We finally got to see our favorite cast back together again, 10 years later. Sadly Zac Efron, known for his role in the movie Troy Bolton, did not attend the reunion. Many of the fans, including myself, were not very happy with Zac Efron’s absence Wednesday night. Who wouldn’t be angry at Zac Efron for not attending the reunion that we have all been waiting for.
The reason that Efron missed the reunion is because of scheduling conflicts. Some may even say that the reason he didn’t attend the reunion was because he didn’t want to be with his ex girlfriend, Vanessa Hudgens. We are not really sure if that could be a reason, but we don’t know for sure. We are mad that he wasn’t there and we just want to blame everything on him.
Zac Efron even made a video for us to see at the reunion and how he was sorry that he couldn’t make it to the reunion. “Hey guys, I’m so sorry that I couldn’t be there in person but I’m with you all in spirit. My favorite scene in the movie has to be ‘We’re All in This Together.’ The unity, the whole cast in that moment was just, really fun. I’ll never forget that day, it’s embedded in my mind as one of the most beautiful days of my entire life.” Those sweet words from Zac actually made me forget for a while that he wasn’t even there.
During the reunion, the cast looked at their old audition tapes and just talked about how big the movies were The cast even stated that they didn’t think that it would be as big as it actually got, impacting all of our lives in so many ways.
High School Musical was part of all of our childhoods. We knew all the songs by heart, we bought all of the merchandise, tried to dance along with them, and of course we all shipped Troy and Gabriella before we even knew what shipping was. To the people who are saying that they didn’t know any of the songs or that they hated High School Musical, why are you lying to yourself? This movie even made children actually want to go into the arts. For some, this was the movie that made them want to start dancing and singing.
Let’s be honest though, we all hate Zac Efron right now because we have been waiting for this reunion for so long and then once it’s here, he doesn’t attend. I know he is busy with his life and career, High School Musical started his whole career. Is he too good now that he can’t even attend the reunion of the movie that put him in the spotlight? Thanks Zac for ruining the reunion that we have been waiting for.
