Believe it or not, it's been a whopping 10 years since the DVD for High School Musical broke free into our lives, a fact that is bound to make us feel insanely old but also yearn for that burst of Disney nostalgia.
Thankfully, the cast (minus Zac, unfortunately) has also been feeling those vibes and was overjoyed to get their heads back in the game during a wildcat reunion earlier this year. Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman, and Lucas Grabeel met up in that gym, where they chatted about the impact of their iconic musical. Remind yourself of what was said with this short clip below:
Sadly, while the cast did not discuss why High School Musical might actually be about the socialist manifesto, they did recall fond memories of when they were the coolest fresh-faced Disney kids on the block.
