Disney+’s “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” is shifting gears heading into Season 2, confusingly taking on an entirely different musical than the one in its many-coloned title.

What is true love? Will I achieve the future I dream of? And, perhaps most importantly, it’s got dancing forks.”

High School Musical Fans: The New Disney+ Series Is Exactly What You've Been Looking For

  • Popsugar
A brand-new group of Wildcats is taking center stage in Disney+'s High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. Are you ready?

If you grew up watching Disney Channel in the early 2000s, you're probably familiar with the hit movie musical franchise franchise. But the new show is the perfect mix of nostalgia and "the start of something new." In fact, the mockumentary-style show, which premieres on Nov. 12, isn't a reboot at all, but more so a continuation of the franchise as it follows a group of students from the fictional East High who decide to put on a production of the hit movie.

While the new stars were very young when the first film came out in 2006, in some way or another they all feel like they grew up with the franchise. "The crazy thing is that, for almost all of us, it's always been a part of our lives,

TV Review: ‘High School Musical: The Musical: The Series’ on Disney Plus

  • Variety
At first glance, “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” seems like a blatant cannibalization of a Disney property as required by a streaming service that depends on nostalgia. At second glance — well, that’s entirely accurate. To its credit, though, the show is upfront about it, delivering its gentle twist on an aggressively inoffensive franchise with a not-so-sly wink.

The new series, which launches Nov. 12 alongside Disney Plus as a whole, is neither a reboot, nor a revival, nor a sequel to the “High School Musical” movie trilogy. Instead, creator Tim Federle made a cute mockumentary- style comedy about the students at the school where “High School Musical” was shot putting on their own rendition of the musical itself, treating it with the kind of reverence that usually belongs to an unimpeachable classic like “West Side Story.” It feels less like “High School Musical” than a sweet and very silly version of “Glee” — which,
