Director Kenny Ortega told People magazine he's excited about working one last time with the cast, a group of virtually unknown actors before the first movie debuted on the Disney Channel in January 2006.

"I am the luckiest guy in the world and I know it," Ortega said. "This will be our last time together and I love working with these kids so much. It's going to be great."

According to the studio, High School Musical 3: Senior Year finds high school seniors Troy [Efron] and Gabriella [Hudgens] facing the prospect of being separated from one another as they head off in different directions to college. Joined by the rest of the Wildcat crew, they stage a spring musical reflecting their hopes and fears about their future.
