Disney Is Here Everything to Know About the High School Musical Series

Disney Is Here Everything to Know About the High School Musical Series

It’s time to get’cha head in the game, because Disney+ has officially arrived.

One of the most anticipated original shows on the new streaming service is High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. The reboot — which has already been renewed for a sophomore season — follows a group of high school juniors putting on their school’s theatrical production of (you guessed it) High School Musical, the Disney Channel movie that made Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens famous. As creator and showrunner Tim Federle previously told PEOPLE, “Doing theater is all about finding your tribe.”

The original High School Musical movie — starring Efron, Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Lucas Grabeel, and Monique Coleman — premiered on the Disney Channel on Jan. 20, 2006. A sequel followed on the network on Aug. 17, 2007, and then a third (centered around the group’s big graduation) hit theaters on Oct. 24, 2008.

“There aren’t a lot of writers who get to launch a new streaming platform like Disney+,” Federle said. “It’s a privilege to create a love letter to fans of the original High School Musical movies while also making an irreverent, feel-good musical for a new generation.”

How much does Disney+ cost?

Beginning today, fans can enjoy Disney’s streaming service for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. With the service comes an overload of feature films, TV shows and animated series.

What is High School Musical: The Musical: The Series about?

Ricky (Joshua Bassett) is a charismatic skater who auditions for the musical in an attempt to win back his ex-girlfriend, Nini (Olivia Rodrigo), despite her new boyfriend, E.J. (Matt Cornett). When it comes time for audition results, Nini and Ricky win the roles of Gabriella and Troy, respectively, much to the ire of E.J., who seemed poised to be the next Troy Bolton.

The former couple is forced to put their differences aside to put on a successful show, as the show’s trailer teases more dancing, singing and drama to come, with (of course) the sound of a HSM classic, “Stick to the Status Quo.”

The 10-episode first season also follows transfer student Gina Porter (Sofia Wylie), E.J.’s cousin Ashlyn Caswell (Julia

Elijah Cummings Widow Maya R Cummings Announces She Plans to Run for His Congressional Seat

Elijah Cummings Widow Maya R Cummings Announces She Plans to Run for His Congressional Seat

Elijah Cummings‘ widow Maya Rockeymoore Cummings is running for her late husband’s seat in Congress.

“I am, of course, devastated at the loss of my spouse, but his spirit is with me,” Rockeymoore Cummings, 48, said in an interview with The Baltimore Sun on Monday, announcing her bid.

“I’m going to run this race and I’m going to run it hard, as if he’s still right here by my side,” she said.

U.S. Rep. Cummings, died on October 17, at 68 years old, his office announced at the time. The civil rights leader died at 2:30 a.m. local time at Gilchrist Hospice Care, a Johns Hopkins affiliate in Baltimore, after “complications concerning long standing health challenges.”

Rockeymoore Cummings told the Sun in her interview Monday that Cummings told her before he died that he hoped she would take his place. Cummings held Maryland’s 7th District seat, which includes areas of both Baltimore and Howard counties.

“That was a discussion we had some months ago,” she told the outlet. “In the end, he was conflicted about whether he should resign or stay in office. We thought there might be a turnaround. It didn’t happen.”

The Maryland Democratic Party Chairwoman said that she plans to kick off her campaign on Tuesday, and will not only continue her husband’s legacy of fighting against Donald Trump, but will also focus on her own areas of expertise, like health and education policy, the Sun said.

But before Rockeymoore Cummings gets too far in her campaign, she plans on taking some preventative measures for her own health, and told the Sun that she will have a double mastectomy on Friday, and will take up to four weeks to recover from the surgery.

“I’m going to take the time I need to heal and do what I can behind the scenes to make sure my campaign is strong,” she said, adding that the surgery was scheduled before Cummings died.

Hailey Baldwin is showing her support for Hilaria Baldwin.

In the wake of Hilaria’s heartbreaking announcement that she had suffered her second miscarriage in seven months, Hailey, 22, commented on her aunt’s Instagram, extending her condolences to Hilaria and Alec Baldwin over the loss of their baby.

“I’m so sorry. Love you guys ❤” the model, who is the daughter of Stephen Baldwin, supportively wrote to Hilaria, 35.

The mother of four, who announced her latest pregnancy in September, shared the devastating news on Instagram shortly after attending her 20-week scan with her doctors.

In the post, Hilaria admitted that she was not expecting the sad outcome when she headed to her appointment earlier in the day, especially after recently suffering a miscarriage in April.

“We are very sad to share that today we learned that our baby passed away at 4 months. We also want you to know that even though we are not ok right now, we will be,” she wrote alongside a video of herself with her daughter Carmen, 6.

“We are so lucky with our 4 healthy babies — and we will never lose sight of this. I told Carmen and took this so I could send it to Alec. I guess this is a good way to share it with you too,” she continued in the caption, referencing her husband and their three other children, sons Romeo Alejandro David, 17 months, Leonardo Ángel Charles, 3, and Rafael Thomas, 4.

“I told her that this baby isn’t going to come after all…but we will try very hard to give her a little sister another time,” she went on. “I’m really devastated right now…I was not expecting this when I went to my scan today. I don’t know what else to say…I’m still in shock and don’t have this all quite clear. Please no paparazzi…that’s all I ask ❤

Rapper YG Invites Stormy Daniels on Stage at Festival to Sing F— Donald Trump

Rapper YG Invites Stormy Daniels on Stage at Festival to Sing F— Donald Trump

Rapper YG and Stormy Daniels have joined forces to express their mutual disdain for Donald Trump.

On Sunday, during his performance at Camp Flog Gnaw in Los Angeles, YG, 29, called Daniels, 40, on stage to sing his controversial hit “FDT,” which stands for “F— Donald Trump.”

Before getting into the song, Daniels introduced herself, which was captured in a video shared by a fan on Twitter.

“My name is Stormy F—ing Daniels, and I am the reason Donald Trump is f—ed,” Daniels told the crowd, who screamed and cheered.

YG then asked the adult film star about her alleged affair with Trump, to which she responded: “I wouldn’t really call it f—ing no, I just laid there.”

Clearly proud of her answer, YG gave Daniels a warm hug before belting out “F— Donald Trump,” which cued the music.

Daniels began singing along and even danced with YG as the crowd continued to shriek.

YG released “FDT” featuring late rapper Nipsey Hussle in 2016. The song strongly criticizes Trump and his views on immigration and compares him to former President Barack Obama.

In December 2018, Daniels, née Stephanie Gregory Clifford was ordered to pay $293,000 in legal fees and sanctions after losing a defamation lawsuit to Trump.

Judge S. James Otero told Daniels, who claims she had an affair with Trump, to pay $292,000 in legal fees and $1,000 in sanctions, The New York Times reported. (Trump has repeatedly denied the affair.)

Trump’s lawyers had reportedly asked for $389,000 to compensate for legal fees.

“The court’s order, along with the court’s prior order dismissing Stormy Daniels’ defamation case against the president, together constitute a total victory for the president, and a total defeat for Stormy Daniels in this case,” Trump’s lawyer Charles J. Harder said in a statement, according to the Times.

“Only @realDonaldTrump would celebrate a ‘win’ at the end of the first quarter,” Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti tweeted. “Stormy will never pay a dime because Trump and his purse puppy Cohen owe my client in excess of $1,500,000 in the NDA case. Seeing as he isn’t good at math, that’s over $1,200,000 to my client.”
