"High School Musical 2 the sequel to the Emmy Award-winning Disney Channel Original Movie for kids, tweens and families, premiered across Australia in September followed by the release of the accompanying soundtrack which has been a huge phenomenon.
For the new movie, Disney reassembled the entire creative team that made "High School Musical" a worldwide sensation. Emmy Award-winning Kenny Ortega returns to direct and, along with fellow Emmy Award-winning choreographers Charles Klapow and Bonnie Story, has created ground-breaking production numbers for the sequel. The story and screenplay was written by former rock music journalist Peter Barsocchini based on the characters he created for the original movie.
Reprising their singing and dancing roles are bona fide superstars in the kid and tween universe: Zac Efron as star athlete Troy Bolton, Vanessa Hudgens as brainy transfer student Gabriella Montez, Ashley Tisdale as drama club diva Sharpay Evans, Lucas Grabeel as drama club idol Ryan Evans, Corbin Bleu as teammate and best friend Chad Danforth and Monique Coleman as academic decathlete Taylor McKessie. Also returning are Alyson Reed ("A Chorus Line") as Ms. Darbus, Chris Warren, Jr. as Zeke, Olesya Rulin as Kelsi, KayCee Stroh as Martha, Ryne Sanborn as Jason and Bart Johnson as Coach Bolton. Mark Taylor (Disney Channel's "Eddie's Million Dollar Cook-Off") joins the cast as the country club manager, Mr. Fulton.

Featuring the entire cast of the film and set to become the sing-along classic of the summer, "What Time Is It" is written by Matthew Gerrard (Kelly Clarkson, Hilary Duff, Jessica Simpson) and Robbie Nevil (Destiny's Child, Melissa Etheridge, Stevie Wonder).
