Showing off their contagious smiles, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens giggled amongst one another and their “High School Musical 3: Senior Year” co-stars during a movie press conference held on Friday (May 2).
And Zanessa are taking the third installment of their hit Disney franchise in stride, claiming that they’re not feeling pressure to top the success of the two previous films.
According to press reports, “The franchise debuted in 2006 as a Disney Channel original movie and quickly became an international hit seen by more than 250 million viewers in 100 countries and 20 languages. The sequel’s August 2007 premiere was seen by 18.6 million viewers, becoming the top basic cable telecast of all time. Disney says the DVD release topped all sales records for 2007 and the movie’s soundtrack went triple platinum.”
Unfazed by such grandiose numbers, Efron tells: “I kind of think of it as the third act. This is the third movie. We’re not looking to top anything, just to do it justice.”
Meanwhile, Vanessa said that the only pressure she feels is that the movie hits the big screen rather than going straight to DVD.
