–Ashley Tisdale will be reprising her role as Sharpay Evans in a new Disney Channel Original Movie.
It was just announced that Ashley will star in a spin-off of the popular High School Musical series called “Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventures.” We’ve also heard the movie will be called “Broadway Bound.”
Filming is set to begin filming in Toronto on June 1, 2010. In the movie, the Sharpay realizes her dream and moves to New York with her pet dog Boi after being discovered by a talent scout. Once there however, Sharpay quickly finds out that making it big in the Big Apple is not as easy as she thought and she has to temper her expectations somewhat if she’s going to thrive.
High School Musical producers Barry Rosenbush and Bill Borden will also serve as executive producers of Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure. “In Sharpay, Ashley Tisdale brought to life one of the most memorable comedic characters we’ve seen in years,” said Gary Marsh, president of entertainment and chief creative officer for Disney Channels Worldwide in a statement. “This movie captures the absolutely perfect next chapter in Sharpay’s life, as she tries to cultivate the humanity buried, deep, deep within her – a challenging and hilarious endeavor.”
Don’t forget that High School Musical 3: Senior Year premieres on Disney Channel on Sunday. What are your thoughts on Ashley returning as Sharpay?
