    'High School Musical 2' on DVD & Blu-ray 12/11/07

    Record-breaking High School Musical 2 on disc Dec. 11



    By Ned Randolph -- Video Business, 8/27/2007

    After more than doubling the viewing audience of its 2006 predecessor, High School Musical 2 will be released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on Dec. 11.

    When it aired on the Disney Channel on Aug. 17, the made-for-TV sequel averaged 17.2 million viewers, making it the most watched basic cable telecast on record. It had the largest audience for any movie on any network in more than 2˝ years, according to Neilson estimates.

    Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment priced the DVD at $29.99, with Blu-ray at $34.99. Prebook is Oct. 16.

    Special features include rehearsal cam footage, bloopers, music videos, sing-alongs and karaoke features.

    The original High School Musical, a hit when it was released on DVD in May last year, jumped back onto the DVD sellers chart the week ended Aug. 19, according to Rentrak Retail Essentials.

    The movie has attracted millions of kids and young teens, who have watched it multiple times. That, according to Disney, has helped build anticipation for its sequel to a fever-pitch.

    High School Musical 2 features music, high energy dancing and a young cast whose characters are engaged in winning the “Star Dazzle Award” at the Midsummer Night's Talent Show.

    The opening week of the High School Musical 2 soundtrack posted the second-highest sales week of the year with 615,000 copies, according to Nielsen Soundscan. That places it second to Linkin Park's Minutes to Midnight, which has sold more than 623,000 copies.

    High School Musical 2 Extended Edition Announced

    "High School Musical 2" comes to DVD and Blu-ray High-Def in an extended edition on December 11, 2007 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. There's a special bonus musical scene available only on DVD and Blu-ray High-Def, seamlessly integrated into the film, in which audiences can finally see the musical number Troy and Sharpay rehearse in the film but never perform. The scene features Sharpay playing the Pineapple Princess looking for her Fresh Fish Prince in the lavish Polynesian fantasy "Humuhumunukunukua'pua'a," in which Sharpay goes all out to win Troy -- and the Star Dazzle Award at the Midsummer Night's Talent Show. The number is complete with a hip-hop ode to Mighty Mount Fufu.

    "High School Musical 2" pops with more of the infectious music, high energy dancing and exuberant young cast that created worldwide "High School Musical"-mania, and brings back Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay and the entire Wildcat gang in another spectacular must-own musical experience! "High School Musical 2: Extended Edition" is packed with bonus material including music videos and sing-along and karaoke features.

    Fans of the top-rated Disney Channel Original Movie will want to watch again and again as the gang from East High takes the stage at the local country club summer talent show! Scheming drama queen Sharpay is at the center of intrigue once more, using her influence to get Troy a job at the club in order to make him her singing partner at the annual show. When Troy arranges jobs for Gabriella and the Wildcats too, Sharpay has to do some fancy maneuvering to keep the others off the stage. To get Troy to go along with her plan, she makes him an offer she thinks he can't refuse -- a chance at a college basketball scholarship -- forcing Troy to choose between his friends and his future.

    The TV movie was directed and choreographed by Kenny Ortega ("High School Musical," "The Cheetah Girls").

    "High School Musical 2: Extended Edition" comes with a grab bag of exclusive-to-DVD and Blu-ray Disc® bonus features, including:

    - Sing Along with "High School Musical 2" - On-screen lyrics for all the songs from the movie let viewers join in with their favorite stars.
    - "High School Musical" Karaoke - Anyone can be a star with this interactive, highly entertaining bonus feature.
    - Rehearsal Cam - An unprecedented opportunity to watch the rehearsal footage in sync with the movie.
    - Bloopers - Nobody's perfect and that's half the fun! Watch as the movie's stars try to cover their hilarious missteps.
    - Music Videos - Including a performance by popular Canadian artist Nikki Yanovsky singing "Gotta Go My Own Way" in French and English.

    "High School Musical 2" premiered on Disney Channel on August 17, and with 17.2 million Viewers, the premiere of "Disney High School Musical 2" now stands as the most-watched cable telecast of all-time, beating TNT's "Crossfire Trail" to become the No. 1 basic cable original movie ever.

    The DVD is priced at $29.99 SRP in the U.S. and $35.99 SRP in Canada. The Blu-ray Disc® is priced at $34.99 SRP in the U.S. and $44.99 in Canada.

    I wonder if the other scene in Gabriella's bedroom will be included as well?

    They'll probably do another version a few months later like they did with the first one.
