High School Musical is the most popular Disney Channel TV movie of all time. Its popularity essentially guaranteed success for all its stars, who have become beloved pop culture fixtures. In fact, the original High School Musical was so popular that it inspired two sequels, High School Musical 2 and High School Musical 3: Senior Year, and a spinoff film, Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure. Most recently, the movie inspired a TV show (with a completely different cast and setting) called High School Musical: The Musical: The Series on Disney Plus (a hit in its own right).
High School Musical takes place at East High School in New Mexico. It centers around Gabriella Montez, a new student who is very intelligent and a promising Scholastic Decathlon team member, and her love interest, the popular basketball star, Troy Bolton. Things get messy when the two of them audition for the school's winter musical and impress the director, Ms. Darbus. The reigning Drama Club president, Sharpay Evans, and her brother Ryan Evans, are immediately jealous.
While Sharpay and Ryan try to secure their place as leads in the musical, Troy and Gabriella must fight against the expectations of their classmates. Troy's team members, especially his friend Chad Danforth, think it's lame he's taking time from sports to pursue musical theatre, while Gabriella's friends, especially Taylor McKessie, need her to spend her time preparing for the upcoming Decathlon. By the end of the film, Gabriella and Troy teach their friends that they don't have to fit into one box and land the leads in East High School's musical.
