Zendaya Dishes Her Stunts in 'The Greatest Showman' & Working With Zac Efron

Zendaya is like us all, you guys — she’s a High School Musical fan!

“I mean everybody was, come on now,” the 20-year-old actress told EOnline when asked about the movie that made co-star Zac Efron a household name.

If you missed it, the trailer for Zendaya and Zac‘s new movie, The Greatest Showman, was released and they should be your go-to movie couple from now on.

“It was amazing,” Zendaya added about the flick. “I spent months trapeze training, which is not something I said or thought I could do. So there you go! You can see that I did it.”

She adds, “I did as much as I could and it was so much fun. I learned different things that I could actually do and take it there.”

This Mini 'High School Musical' Reunion Will Give You All of the Feels

This Mini 'High School Musical' Reunion Will Give You All of the Feels

It has been more than a decade since High School Musical first blessed our screens, but it will never be forgotten — and former cast member KayCee Stroh knows that as well as anyone.

KayCee (Martha) played the academic who loved hip-hop in the series, and she met up with Lucas Grabeel (Ryan) and Coach Bolton – we mean, Bart Johnson – on set of their new movie, Little Women.

“I needed a little bit of #coaching and some #Awesomeness today so,” she captioned a totally sweet photo with Bart, “Ugh, I just love this talented, sweet, energetic big guy…so much!”

Aww! She also stumbled into Lucas on-set, and penned an equally heartwarming caption to their reunion pic.

“Guess who else just happened to be working on the @littlewomenmovie set yesterday!? Double bonus! So happy I scored a quick little catch up with this sweet and talented friend of mine. Can’t wait to see how stunning his work will be in this project, as always.”

Skyler Johnson, who played young Troy in High School Musical 3, is going to college soon, and we have no idea where the time has gone.

Thank you KayCee for the throwback — our heads are still in the game.

HSM3's Young Troy Bolton Just Went To Prom & Is Going To College & Where Did The Time Go?

For anyone who’s seen High School Musical 3 (we’re going to assume just about everyone reading this post has), you know that “The Boys Are Back” musical number was probably the best thing you’ve ever seen.

You probably even remember the mini-Troy Bolton and mini-Chad Danforth too — who are definitely all grown up!

Skyler Johnson actually played Zac Efron‘s younger self and actually just turned 19, and now he’s going off to college. Seriously — where.did.the.time.go?

Skyler also just reunited with HSM3 co-choreographer Chucky Klapow, too.

Yep, we’re all fossils!

BONUS: Skyler is actually dancer Jenna Johnson‘s younger brother!

This 'High School Musical' Theory Might Be The Best Theory Yet

This 'High School Musical' Theory Might Be The Best Theory Yet

There are theories out there about everything — but this one about High School Musical might just blow them all away.

There’s another new theory, from Reddit obviously, saying that all three movies are actually one long musical that is separated into three acts.

Apparently, we’re watching a musical of the musical of the musical.

“Everything in the 3 movies is only a musical,” this theorist explained, which is coming to light nearly two years after they originally proposed it.

“This explains the perfectly choreographed dance sequences when they randomly sing songs, the ending scene, and the very fictitious story.”

They add, that “towards the end of High School Musical 3, we see the main cast walking towards the camera until they stand on a stage. Curtains fall behind them as they bow to the audience, and the series ends as more curtains close. While the saying of goodbyes can be dismissed as a gesture towards fans, I think it hints to the true story of the movie series.”

“The name of the series, however, is my most concrete point in this theory. It’s even partially canon that the movies never happened, and were only a, well, high school musical.”

Is your mind blown or even more confused yet? Kenny Ortega, can you please clear this up!

Ashley Tisdale & Lucas Grabeel Confess They Hated Each Other During 'High School Musical'!

Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel recently reunited to to sing one of their iconic duets from High School Musical, AND we learned so much more about them.

Like the fact they actually hated each other while they were filming the first movie.

“All I remember is, we were not close. We were not good friends,” Ashley, who played sassy Sharpay, confessed, before laughing, “It’s been 10 years, we can totally talk about this. We hated each other.”

“Yeah, we didn’t get off on the best foot,” Lucas, who played Ryan, Sharpay’s twin brother, agreed.

By the time they got finished filming the movie, though, things had definitely changed.

“After we wrapped though, I’ve always had a love for you,” Ashley said to Lucas.

“I love you, too,” he admitted sweetly.

Aw! See the entire video — including their duet of “What I’ve Been Looking For” — right here.

Ashley Tisdale And Lucas Grabeel Just Reunited For An AMAZING 'High School Musical' Duet

Ashley Tisdale And Lucas Grabeel Just Reunited For An AMAZING 'High School Musical' Duet

Ashley Tisdale updated her YouTube channel today to reveal a HUGE surprise for High School Musical fans.

The 31-year-old singer and actress, who recently took to Twitter to talk about her iconic character, Sharpay Evans, invited her old friend Lucas Grabeel (who played her twin brother Ryan Evans) to sing with her.

“It’s been 10 years since we sang this song” Lucas remembered as he and Ashley reminisced before singing a re-imagined version of “What I’ve Been Looking For.”

The track, originally belted by Sharpay and Ryan as an upbeat tune, got a makeover by the pair that sounded a bit more like Troy (aka Zac Efron) and Grabriella’s (aka Vanessa Hudgens) original cover.

“Hope you guys like the little changes that we made.” Lucas said, referencing the new rifts and harmonies in the song.

“Yeah,” Ashley added. “You know, we had to make it vibey and cool. We had to make it 2017.”

What do you think of this new take on the song? Check out the video below and let us know in the comments.

Ashley Tisdale Agrees That Sharpay is Honestly a Victim in 'High School Musical'

Ashley Tisdale Agrees That Sharpay is Honestly a Victim in 'High School Musical'

Sharpay is always painted as the villain in the High School Musical franchise, but a new Twitter theory floats the idea that she’s been misunderstood all along, and Ashley Tisdale totally supports it!

In the Twitter rant, user @SHARPAYSAVICTIM (lol) details how Sharpay worked so hard her whole life to be an actress, and was often made fun of at the price of her art, only to have her role snatched away from her from amateur performers (Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens) who didn’t take the theater seriously. It’s a super plausible analysis, and definitely makes you reevaluate the entire series: read it here.

Ashley tweeted about the theory herself (discovered by Buzzfeed) and responded, “This is hilarious!”

She then expanded on it, joking about her character’s name.

“I personally think she was a victim from the start……. her parents named her Sharpay!”

Such a good point. We know Ashley connected with her character Sharpay, as she lovingly pointed out earlier this month with a series of throwback pictures where she took influence from her effervescent style.

What do you guys think? Is Sharpay a victim?
