On his take of the third HSM movie, leading man Efron stated as quoted by Associated Press, "I kind of think of it as the third act. This is the third movie. We're not looking to top anything, just to do it justice." Further, Hudgens who plays Gabriella revealed that the characters in this latest installment are "growing" and also hinted that there will be more romance in it as she claimed, "You definitely see relationship blossom."
Though being the third installment of the hit Disney film series, "Senior Year" will be the first of the series to be made for the big screen and it will still follow the lead characters, Troy and Gabriella, as they become seniors and face hard decision about their future. The movie will start shooting on May 3 in Salt Lake City, Utah and is expected to arrive in theaters on October 24, 2008.
