​High School Musical Cast Reunite For The Disney Family Singalong Special

The cast of High School Musical have reunited for a special Disney singalong video to remind people at home that 'we're all in this together'.

ABC threw the ultimate living room party on Thursday with its Disney Family Singalong, roping in famous faces to bring some classic Disney jams back to life.

The event was hosted by Ryan Seacrest, who said: "From our living rooms to yours, we take a break and come together to share in the joy of Disney and some of our favorite music at a time when we need it most."

Among those to feature in the special singalong were the cast from the High School Musical trilogy, the first film of which was released in 2006, followed by two further instalments in 2007 and 2008.

Zac Efron, who starred in the franchise as varsity basketball whizz Troy Bolton, introduced the song with a video filmed from home, saying to fans: "Hi everyone and I hope that you are safe and healthy, [and] you're doing as well as possible during these unprecedented times.

"It is my greatest pleasure to introduce a musical performance by some of my oldest friends and some new ones.

"I hope you enjoy and remember that we're all in this together."

"I am super looking forward to finishing off this singalong jam with a bang."
