Talking to MTV News about his latest 'High School Musical' project, Zac Efron hinted that the 'Senior Year' installment would be the successful series' last film.
"High School Musical 3: Senior Year" will be the last installment of the popular "Musical" franchise. MTV News reported that the prospect of making the third film as the last has been confirmed by one of the Disney's romantic musical's star, Zac Efron.
To the music television network, the 20-year-old actor revealed that the film will be the climax of the extremely successful series saying, "This is going to be the farewell to the East High Wildcats for a while. Senior year, graduation, this movie is the climax, it's the third act, this is the legacy that we leave on East High." He then stated, "I think it's going to be a good way to go out with a bang."
Despite of the ending of the series, the "Hairspray" star confessed that the chance of coming back to do the last installment is enough to make him smiling. He insisted, "'High School Musical' is unlike anything. No one can fully understand. It's just all of us in a group having fun. We really became best friends during this project, the whole cast. It's like not even work. We just have the time of our lives out there."
In the possibly last series, the Wildcats will come back to the screen as seniors and are expecting to be graduating soon. The film is going to follow its main characters Troy and Gabriella as usual, but this time the two are facing the prospect of being separated from one another as they head off in different directions to college. Slated for release on October 24, "Musical 3" will be starred by its original cast, including Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Lucas Grabeel and Monique Coleman.
