As a High School Musical fan, the thing you needed the most in your life and weren’t even aware of it, was a new musical starring Zac Efron. Even though Phillip and Troy are two different characters, I couldn’t help but see a bit of Troy while watching Zac singing and dancing. In his duet with Zendaya, Rewrite the stars, the moment where he escaladed the side of the stage and hang himself with one hand meanwhile doing this opening movement with his other hand… I had MAJOR throwback to that moment in HSM 3 where Troy and Gabriella did the duet and he escaladed the green-painted tree on “I just wanna be with you”.

That's what I'm talking about, Troy euh I mean Phillip! You can get the boy out of the movie, but you can't get the movie out of the boy.

Other thing you didn’t know you needed in your life: a collaboration between Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron. Someone would have come to me back in 2010 and told me that Wolverine and Troy Bolton would one day sing and dance together, I would have laughed in their face and go back to my X-Men marathon. But now that it happened, it was one of the hottest thing 2018 have offered me so far!

The look, babes.

And what about the powerful message of love, friendship and believing in ourselves that the movie sends. It pained me the way Anne and her brother were victim of segregation. Same for the rest of the gang – everyone is different, but powerful & unique in their differences.

Such a great movie with a great cast, amazing original songs, and meaningful themes, all of that based on a “real story” – the story of P.T Barnum & the first circus. When I got out of the theater, the believer that I am felt like everything was possible, that I can make it happen if I really want to.
“No one ever made a difference by being like everyone else.” -P. T Barnum
