Vanessa Hudgens Confirmed for High School Musical 3

Vanessa Hudgens, has revealed to People magazine that she will be joining the cast of “High School Musical 3,” participating in the third installment of the movie series that helped us to know who the heck she was when naked pictures of her showed up on the Internet. According to Hudgens, negotiations for the entire cast had yet to be signed, but that her co-stars were all near finalizing their deals with the film, set to be the first in the franchise to hit the big screen. Here’s what Hudgens told People:

“I am so very excited. To do a third one for the big screen, I can’t begin to think how much fun we’ll have.”

Additionally, the young starlet will again be reunited with her supposed boyfriend, Zac Efron, who is looking so intently into the camera, as if to dare us to question his sexuality. Also, you can see Ashley Tisdale who looks super-cute, but as she’s holding up her dog to her hair, I’m realizing that it looks like they both have the same highlights and low-lights. Is that what the kids are doing these days? Sigh. I’m old.
