It's not that Efron isn't grateful. He knows that High School Musical transformed him from television-drama walk-in to leading man. That's why he's starring in the sure-to-be-a-hit sequel, which premieres on Disney on August 17th, in which the East High kids go to a summer country club and a Disneyfied class war ensues. However, Efron now has the clout to play by his own rules, so he fought Disney -- and won -- in order to be allowed to sing on the movie and album this time around.
