High School Musical 3: Senior Year
The phenomenally successful High School Musical franchise makes the leap onto the big screen with the third installment, High School Musical 3: Senior Year. As the name implies, this time out the students at East High are dealing with impending changes in their lives as Graduation nears. Troy (Zac Efron) wins another basketball championship with his best friend and teammate Chad (Corbin Bleu), and finds himself conflicted about his college plans, unable to choose between basketball and theater. And as if this weren't enough, he's also struggling to figure out how to maintain his relationship with his loving girlfriend Gabriella (Vanessa Hudgens) when she opts for early admission to Stanford.
