Zac Efron has just hinted at the possibility of a High School Musical reboot – and we can’t contain our excitement.

The actor may have broken fans hearts when he didn’t take part in a special cast reunion back in 2020, but now he says he is eager to come a back for another movie.

In a recent interview with E! News, he was asked about the possibility of reprising his role as Troy Bolton some time in the future, and he said:

“Of course, of course. I mean, yeah. Seriously to have an opportunity in any form to go back and work with that team would be so amazing.

“My heart is still there. That would be incredible. I hope it happens.”

High School Musical launched Zac into the mainstream with his breakthrough role of heartthrob basketball star Troy Bolton.  The 2006 Disney Channel movie had two sequels, both starring Zac.

The third film opened in cinemas, rather than premiering on Disney Channel like the previous two, and grossed almost $253 million at the worldwide box office.

The franchise was somewhat rebooted in 2019 with the release of the television series “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” on Disney+, starring Olivia Rodrigo.

The plot revolved around a group of teenage musical theatre lovers who decided to put on a school play based on the High School Musical movie.

However, without all of the original cast, it wasn’t exactly the same.

Like fellow cast members Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale, Zac has moved beyond Disney and made a name for himself in the acting world starring as Philip Carlyle in The Greatest Showman and portraying prolific serial killer Ted Bundy in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.
