High School Musical 4 plans on

Kenny Ortega wants to make a fourth High School Musical movie.

The director – who helmed the first three films in the Walt Disney franchise – insists people are still interested in the teen musical concept, and feels there is still scope for another film which will focus entirely on British newcomer Jemma McKenzie-Brown.

Speaking at the UK premiere of High School Musical 3: Senior Year in London’s Leicester Square last night (07.10.08), Kenny said: “I hope so. I mean, if these kids are still reacting this way after three it would be fun to try and imagine how we would do it for the next generation, maybe with Jemma.”

Kenny also expressed his delight at the amazing turnout for the premiere, adding: “It’s just spectacular. I mean, they told us the kids had been lined up here all day and we were to expect a really exciting turnout, but it is 10 times bigger than my imagination allowed me to believe.”

Stars Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale and Corbin Bleu joined Kenny on the red carpet, before signing autographs for fans.

Ashley, who plays queen bee Sharpay Evans in the movies, revealed she found the last day of shooting incredibly “emotional”, as she has become good friends with the rest of the cast.

She said: “I think that all of us are a big family and I love working with Zac, Vanessa and all of them. I think even though this could be the end for us with this movie, we will always stay friends no matter what.”
