Tween phenomenon High School Musical 2 will come with a bonus musical scene integrated into the film when it debuts on DVD and Blu-ray Disc Dec. 11 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.
The extended edition has a scene in which the character Sharpay, who plays the Pineapple Princess in the Polynesian fantasy “Humuhumunukunukua'pua'a,” tries to win Troy's affections. The 17.2 million people who watched High School Musical 2 when it premiered on Disney Channel Aug. 17 (the most-watched cable telecast of all time) should understand what that means.
High School Musical 2: Extended Edition includes the special features “Sing Along With High School Musical 2,” with onscreen lyrics for all the songs from the movie; “High School Musical Karaoke,” an interactive bonus feature; “Rehearsal Cam,” with rehearsal footage in sync with the movie; a gag reel; and music videos, including one from popular Canadian artist Nikki Yanovsky singing “Gotta Go My Own Way” in French and English.
The soundtrack for High School Musical 2 debuted at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart for the week ended Aug. 19 — a first for a TV-movie soundtrack.
