    For those ignorant kids who think HSM, Grease, Evita and The Phantom of the Opera (2004) are good film musicals please watch one or more of the following:

    1776
    An American in Paris
    Gigi
    My Fair Lady
    The Unsinkable Molly Brown
    Finnian's Rainbow
    Singin' in the Rain
    Show Boat (1936 or 1951)
    State Fair (1945 NOT 1962)
    Oklahoma!
    Oliver!
    The King and I
    West Side Story
    Hello, Dolly!
    Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
    Swing Time
    The Band Wagon
    Victor/Victoria
    How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
    South Pacific
    The Music Man
    Fiddler on the Roof
    The Happiest Millionaire
    Bedknobs and Broomsticks
    Newsies
    The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band
    Babes in Toyland (1934 or 1961)
    Half a Sixpence
    Hairspray (2007)
    Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street
    Easter Parade
    Yankee Doodle Dandy
    Carousel
    Funny Girl
    The Muppet Movie or The Great Muppet Caper
    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?

    High School Musical doesn't deserve to be compared to those. It's not of the quality nor does it have the talent that those had.

    I understand that, it was more of a plea to prevent some people from thinking that recent film musicals such as HSM are the be all end all for the genre. I know the first one was just another run of the mill DCOM like Luck of the Irish or Halloweentown 2 but the theatrical version could potentially be more daring in it's song score, scope, ideas instead of being what it is in reality, a mindless franchise extension.

    The production value is higher than the first 2 at least...

    Bigger budget doesn't mean it's going to be a good musical (just look at the film version of Camelot or any recent movie musical for example), to quote So Dear to My Heart "it's what you do with what you got". It's entirely possible to make a enjoyable low budget musical about High School students, it's just that Disney didn't make one (or two, or three possibly) unfortunately.

    Gosh - I thought the trailer seemed fun! And of much better quality than the first two films (yes - I did see them!).
    You just have to keep in mind the genre and the target demo when you're watching these sort of things - it's not trying to be My Fair lady or West Side Story - it's young, bubblegum pop. Enjoy it for what is it: catchy tunes, cutesy one-liners and just an overall fun, family movie.

    No one said it would. Or wouldn't.

    Bigger budget just makes it look prettier.

    I think taking it to the big screen is taking it over the top, but hey, it did create a cult of fans. I'll see it just because I've seen the other two, hehe. I have no shame! I agree with Angie_Duke, though, for the most part. Those are truly the good musicals and everyone should see at least one of them!

    I am with you! I liked the trailer and get a kick out of Sharpay. It has an over all good message for my kids! That is what is important to me!

    Hehe - Sharpay is one of my favorites too. She's a riot. I love the last scene of the trailer: Sharpay: When's the big game? Troy: Um - yesterday. Shar: Well, good luck! LOL!

    I hear there are several new characters in this one too - should be fun having some of the old favs as well as some new faces.

    A publicist told me yesterday that it looks like the 'HSM3' premiere will be at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on 10/17 or 18, and neighboring Hollywood High School's gym and field is being considered for an after-party site. Details will be nailed down soon.

    The event will be by invitation only. Some tickets are as usual being utilized for charitable and promotional purposes.

    That sounds so cool - what a cute idea that would be!

    So I found a full-length video for "Now or Never" online - it's the song from the trailer but it's not interrupted by dialogue and it has a few different scenes not shown in the trailer. Enjoy!
