Here's what Disney has to say about the set:

"It's time to sing and dance because there's so much more to celebrate in HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2: EXTENDED EDITION.

The East High Wildcats are gearing up for big fun as they land the coolest summer jobs imaginable. Troy (Zac Efron), Gabriella (Vanessa Hudgens), Chad (Corbin Bleu), and Taylor (Monique Coleman) have scored sweet gigs at the Lava Springs Country Club owned by Sharpay and Ryan's family. Sharpay's first rule of business: Get Troy. As Troy experiences a life of privilege he's never known, will he give up the Wildcats and Gabriella to rise to the top? Featuring an all-star cast, exclusive bonus features, hot new songs and awesome dancing, HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2: EXTENDED EDITION is way 2 good 2 miss!"

Suggested retail price for the DVD is $29.99, or $34.99 for the Blu-ray.

Update: Amazon.com is now preselling the DVD for $17.99, or the Blu-ray disc for $24.49. You'll need a Blu-ray player to watch that version, but it's in high definition, and should look amazing!
