The cast of the highly successful made-for-TV movie headed out to Utah to shoot their third installment, which will hit the big screen for the first time this October.
During the â€œHigh School Musical 3â€ press conference on Friday, the cast talked about some major developments in the plot and characters of the third movie, which will follow the â€œWild Catsâ€ in their last year in high school.
Vanessa Hudgens revealed that the third movie is â€œthe last chapter for the Wildcats.â€ Nonetheless, she says it’s good to be back in Utah, as it definitely â€œfeels like homeâ€”being back here with everyone, it’s amazing.â€
On the new characters we’re going to meet in the third movie, she assured us that â€œthey’re all real characters that you know and see in high school.â€
Kenny Ortega, who was the director, revealed that he is truly inspired by his mentor, Gene Kelly, who appeared most notably in the film â€œSingin’ in the Rain.â€
The director also revealed during the â€œHSM3â€ press conference, â€œOne great thing I learned from Gene Kelly was how to design choreography for the camera versus designing choreography for the stage. Gene used to say there should be a raison d’etreâ€”a reason for being. What’s at the center of everything?â€
The characters of Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron seemed to be at the center of the first two movies, with the plot including their growing relationships with their peers. On the third installment however, they promise to bring in more developments and individual outlook, as the characters are now in the pivotal point in their livesâ€”senior year.

She adored style icons Mary-Kate Olsen, Victoria Beckham and Nicole Richie because they â€œhave fun with fashion.â€ When it comes to clothing and style, Vanessa Hudgens revealed that the best thing is to feel â€œfeminine and sexyâ€”just how a girl should!â€
