As per a New York Post article, Zac Efron expressed excitement about returning to the film series. While promoting Firestarter ahead of its May 13th release, the 17 Again actor said he would happily return to the High School Musical series if the chance to rejoin and work with the original crew arose. Amazing na!
As noted by the portal, Zac Efron was quoted saying, “Of course. I mean to have an opportunity in any form to go back and work with that team would be so amazing. My heart is still there. That would be incredible. I hope it happens.”
While Zac is up to returning to his role as the ace basketball player-turned-musical star, he will soon be seen playing a father in his soon to release film Firestarter.
