The technology will make possible a new virtual meeting and a reunion, this time between the musical cast of High School Musical for the special of The Disney Family Singalong.
According to the medium Deadline, was the actor Zac Efron, the last to confirm, but will be present next to Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman and Lucas Grabeel, each one from their homes, where they will put voice to the song We’re All in this Together written by Matthew Gerrard and Robbie Nevil, who was part of the film of 2006.
“We were not able to get to Zac until late, but when we did, he immediately intervened. All that we contacted were quick, and they will see him in his spirit and in the way in which they join from their homes,” said director Kenny Ortega.
The meeting, which may be viewed on the ABC network on 16 April, is taken by the actors as an opportunity to strengthen the spirits of those who join to see the transmission from their homes and who are in quarantine due to the spread of the COVID-19 in the world. This is why they chose a theme with an inspirational message in times of uncertainty.
“I’ve been sent videos of doctors, assistants, nurses and medical professionals with masks and hospital gowns to be singing ‘We’re All in this Together’ in the corridors of the hospitals,” added Ortega.
The special The Disney Family Singalong will feature other celebrities with Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Christina Aguilera, Auli’i Cravalho, Luke Evans, Jordan Fisher, and Josh Gad.
