Did you know this was going on? Apparently, the wildly popular with tweens Disney franchise is coming to a big screen near you – and SOON! I have seen the signs posted in various places – billboards and bus stops – but it wasn’t until I got an email from another mom in Eilis’ school that she had tried to get opening day tickets without luck that I looked into it for my own tween.
Fortunately, we were able to secure opening day tickets at a different theater, and her father is going to take her. It means I will have to arrive at work a little earlier than I had planned, but that’s okay – I don’t mind going in a few minutes early for the sake of Zac Efron!
Seriously, could it be any more obvious that they are riding this cash cow to the very end? This is apparently the last of the High School Musical Movies, because the kids are now collecting social security, but this is the first one to make it to the big screen. The others were on the Disney Channel and still managed to generate thousands for the Disney coffers.
I hope Eilis loves the movie. Just not enough to plaster her room with Zac Efron posters.
