High School Musical needs to die!

Power Rangers sucked because Saban only cared about selling toys. However, the show had the best mythology of any `90s childrens program. If the people involved would have taken the show seriously it would have been the best.

True.

Haunted High School Musical to the Big Screen

February 8, 2007



Disney's phenomenally successful "High School Musical" franchise will graduate to the big screen in 2008 with Haunted High School Musical, an all-new musical adventure, it was announced today by Oren Aviv, president of production for the Walt Disney Motion Pictures Group.

The original High School Musical, an Emmy Award-winning Disney Channel Original Movie that premiered in 2006, went on to reach over 100 million unique viewers worldwide. In the U.S., the movie's soundtrack was the #1 album of the year in 2006 (certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA) and is a top-seller in international territories. Additionally, 6.5 million DVD units have been sold to date around the world. The success of the movie led to a sold-out 42-date arena concert tour featuring cast members Ashley Tisdale, Vanessa Hudgens, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman, and special guest star Drew Seeley (Zac Efron was unavailable due to his movie production schedule). Additionally, Disney Theatrical has licensed the script for local school productions, and it is anticipated that 2000 schools will produce stage versions in the first year alone. ,b>High School Musical 2</B>, reuniting the film's original cast with director Kenny Ortega, will premiere on Disney Channel this summer.

Commenting on the announcement, Aviv said, "Given the enormous universal appeal and phenomenal popularity of the 'High School Musical' franchise, we wanted to bring that same energy, excitement and entertainment to the big screen with a unique and original idea. We're now ready to transform 'High School Musical' into a memorable theatrical musical experience with 'Haunted High School Musical."

Rich Ross, president, Disney Channel Worldwide, added, "When people think 'big screen' for a TV movie, they generally don't think this big - but no plasma TV could contain our plans for 'High School Musical 3,' thanks to the Walt Disney Studios."

Gary Marsh, president, entertainment, Disney Channel Worldwide, commented, "'High School Musical' exploded off the TV screen and into the lives of kids and families everywhere. It skyrocketed to heights never before achieved by a TV movie, so it's only fitting that its next incarnation should be as a major motion picture. Now, millions of kids and families can 'get their heads in the game' one more time -- and continue to experience this cultural phenomenon."

High School Musical premiered on Disney Channel on January 20th, 2006, and went on to become the highest rated original movie up until that time. It won the Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Children's Programming, and received two Emmy Awards (of its total 6 nominations), a DGA Award, and an Imagen Award for Best Children's Program, and a Humanitas Prize nomination. The soundtrack received a Billboard Music Award for Soundtrack of the Year, and was nominated for an American Music Award in the Favorite Album (Pop/Rock) category. The film even earned an entry in the Guinness World Record Book as the first TV movie to deliver nine concurrent singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Internationally, High School Musical has aired on Disney Channels (26 worldwide) and free-to-air broadcasters, reaching over 100 countries. For the September 2006 premiere in India, the music was re-recorded in Hindi with Indian instrumentation and more rhythmic beats to achieve a "Bollywood" sound.

Adding to its success, High School Musical has spawned a #1 New York Times bestseller - "High School Musical - The Novel," which has sold over 1.2 million copies. High School Musical was also the first TV movie to be offered on the iTunes Music Store. High School Musical themed shows have also proven to be popular at the Disney Theme Parks and Resorts, including Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, and an upcoming production at Disneyland Paris.
shouldn't this title read "high school musical needs to be EXPELLED?
 
No, being expelled is too good for the franchise. It needs to run over by a yellow school bus and die!
How about the Magic School Bus?

So, the star of these movies (Zac Efron?) is like becoming a teen idol now. He's in Hairspray and all the girls seem to be excited about it. :huh:
 
Maybe in Haunted High School Musical they all end up dying. "High School Musical" meets "The Hills Have Eyes" would be perfect.
 
at least disney is smart enough not to make a movie about a theme park ride... oh wait....
 
Disney channel shows are like an alternate reality of how people would like america to be.

I assume you're talking about the Pirates films, which are the best films Disney has put out in a long time without Pixar.

yes but the fact that it is based on a theme park ride, is ****ing gold.
 
Anyone who hates Power Rangers is OBVIOUSLY not from the 90s and thus their opinion about it, uh- shrugs shoulders- who cares. Lol. They'll never see it from the right perspective because its not from their 80s.

Power Rangers were great!

Power Rangers were great!

i was a kid in the 80's and the 90's. you know you can be born early 80's and love those cartoons and also have grown up in the 90's and think that some shows like Power Rangers are epic in their sh**stinkedness.
that show was lame derivitive, repetitive, poorly acted, poorley written and pushed racial stereotypes.
so shrug your shoulders all you want, and blame the 80's kids. but some of us were young enough to be in the right age demographic and still find it to be intollerable.

anyway what does this have to do with HSM? other than the fact that I wish i had a gallon of gasoline, all of the negatives and a book of matches?
 
I knew you must have been 80s, see you had to be there with Power Rangers in their prime. It was a hit for a reason. Looking back at it, yeah- it wasn't the best. But, as I said- you had to be there in it's prime and at the right age. Back then the Power Rangers were great and still have that nostalgia charm to it. Just like your random shows had to you guys in the late 80s, early 90s... had to you pegged for 8-10 at the time.

Other points:

1. Disney has definitely gone done in animation department on TV, 90s had:

- Doug
- Bonkers
- Tail Spin
- Darkwing Duck

Etc. All great remaining to classic form cartoons with that Disney tone to them.

What happened to the cartoons of old? It seems like past a certain date in either late 90s or early millenia it all turned to crap seemingly.

2. WTF is Cheetah Girls? I'm guessing for a lot of guys on here the prime nostalgia Disney film is: My Date with the President's Daughter
