This last week, I have been watching the High School Musical the Musical on Disney Plus. That kept me more occupied and filled in plenty of my time during lockdown so far. Although, please read on because I’m going to compare the Musical TV series to the original Disney High School Musical movies too!
I wasn’t expecting the TV series to be as good as the Movies, but I was pleasantly surprised. Partly because the TV series is so different to the movies, when I first heard about the TV Series, I thought it was going to be the same plot as the movie, but split into different episodes. However, this is what made the TV show so different, because the TV series follows the current students at the school where High School Musical was filmed as they try to perform High School Musical the Musical to their parents and fellow classmates.
The TV series still has the same amount of whit that you would expect from the High School Musical Series, as well as some old character names and their personalities coming through as the new cast act their parts out! The TV series is more of a musical soap for those in the UK that are watching the series!
Also the series is so well put together, I’m hoping they’re going to do another series, because this reminded be of Glee, because of the way that it is put together and the way it celebrates everyones differences and treats everyone as an equal as well.
Therefore if you haven’t yet watched this TV series please do! Because it is absolutely amazing, even though I really didn’t have high hopes for it at the start.
Please if you do check this series out, be sure to leave a comment below and tell me what you think as well, it would be really interesting to get other peoples views on this, especially as it is still such a popular franchise.
