  • BOTH: "High School Musical: The Musical: The Holiday Special."

  • "High School Musical: The Musical: The Holiday Special."

  • "High School Musical: The Musical: The Holiday Special."

  • Whoo!

  • Blah.

  • [LIVELY MUSIC]

  • Ha! Boom, baby.

  • It's another episode of "What's Up, Disney+"

  • where we talk about all things Disney+.

  • Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh.

  • Today, we are full of school, team, and llama spirit.

  • Llama spirit?

  • Well, I don't think that's a thing.

  • But I can certainly see us getting into the groove.

  • But we digress.

  • First things first, let's get our head

  • in the game with "High School Musical: The Musical:

  • The Holiday Special."

  • Yes.

  • And from the stage to the field, we

  • have the Disney+ original film "Safety,"

  • and to end things off with a groove, [SQUEAKS].

  • Translation: "The Emperor's New Groove"

  • has a big anniversary to celebrate.

  • So let's get to it.

  • Not only is it time to warm up for the holiday season,

  • but it's time to warm up for the stage once more.

  • "High School Musical: The Musical: The Holiday Special"

  • is serving up their best pop and lock and jam and breaks

  • in this new holiday special which premieres tomorrow,

  • and it includes a sneak peek of Season

  • Two of "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series."

  • I love that title.

  • Same.

  • So Jenny, what did you think of Season One?

  • Drama students, drama, like real drama,

  • comedy, it was great.

  • And it's just so meta to have performances

  • of the original "High School Musical" songs

  • as well as new songs from students who are putting

  • on the high school musical at the school

  • where "High School Musical" was filmed.

  • This is definitely a series that does

  • not stick to the status quo.

  • No.

  • And breaking free from their meta, musical lives,

  • we caught up with the newest East High drama students.

  • Let's take a look.

  • If I could describe Julia Lester in three Disney+

  • characters, it's very easy.

  • Well, one, Ashlynn, her character on "High

  • School Musical: The Musical: The Series."

  • She is to a T like perfectly Ashlynn.

  • If I were to describe Kate in Three Disney+ characters, first

  • of all, I love her so much.

  • She is so talented.

  • Y'all need to check her out, she's literally amazing.

  • If I had to describe Mark St. Cyr using three Disney+

  • characters, I think he would be a little bit of Buzz Lightyear

  • from "Toy Story"--

  • Rapunzel from "Tangled" because she's

  • so fearless and just so iconic.

  • I feel like Olaf is a good one.

  • Because she's very goofy, and Olaf is a very goofy,

  • like lovable, like little fun snowman.

  • A little bit of Maui from "Moana."

  • Hannah Montana because her voice is beautiful.

  • She's like very Mulan-esque.

  • I guess. Dhe's a very strong, empowered

  • woman, which is fantastic.

  • She has a very strong will, and you know, knows what

  • she wants and goes after it.

  • Snow White.

  • I don't know what it is about Kate

  • that literally just makes me feel

  • like she's a Disney princess.

  • And, of course, a little bit of Mr

  • Mazzara from "High School Musical: The Musical:

  • The Series."

  • My Disney+ crush?

  • Uh--

  • My Disney+ crush is the one and only Michael

  • B. Jordan from "Black Panther."

  • My Disney+ crush has to be Joy from the "Inside Out."

  • Hannah Montana-- that's, that's, that's a good one.

  • I've been following Michael B. Jordan for a minute,

  • and I must say that man is chef's kiss, absolutely

  • just perfectly made, perfectly.

  • She is so happy, and I think she'd be a wonderful person

  • to spend the day with.

  • I grew up loving "Hannah Montana,"

  • so I can't pass over Hannah Montana

  • on the Disney+ crush.

  • "High School Musical: The Musical: The Holiday Special"

  • is out tomorrow,

  • and you can stream Season One of "High

  • School Musical: The Musical: The Series" now on Disney+.

  • Wow, you guys, the Disney Investor Day just happened.

  • And boy, do we have some news for you.

  • Yes, we do.

  • An incredible slate of Disney+ original movies and series

  • were just announced.

  • Now if you want to see the entire list,

  • definitely check out Disney on Twitter.

  • But we have got to go through at least some

  • of the movies and series that we're excited for.

  • And there is a lot.

  • First, I want to start off by talking

  • about the reimagined classics.

  • I am so excited about series like "The Mighty Ducks:

  • Game Changers," "Turner and Hooch," and the long-awaited

  • sequel, "Hocus Pocus 2."

  • Yes, "Hocus Pocus" finally getting a sequel to that 1990s

  • classic.

  • And we're also going to see the legacy continue

  • with "The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers,"

  • even bringing Emilio Estevez back into the fold

  • alongside Lauren Graham.

  • And oh my gosh, Andre, "Turner and Hooch"!

  • Who didn't love that adorable mastiff?

  • Now alongside Josh Peck, that sounds really cool.

  • But that's just the beginning, Jenny.

  • That's just the start.

  • Now you know I love animation.

  • And we already hit the Disney+ jackpot

  • with Disney and Pixar's "Soul"

  • coming out December 25.

  • But Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Studios

  • have made my dreams come true.

  • I am so excited for these new series:

  • "Zootopia+" and "Baymax!"--

  • and then Pixar is bringing back the return

  • of another wonderful dog, Dug from "Up," in "Dug Days."

  • So excited.

  • I absolutely love Dug.

  • I fell in love with him in Pixar's "Up."

  • And I was always wondering what his whereabouts were.

  • And now I will know.

  • I'll know more about his suburbia adventures

  • and all the squirrels.

  • Yeah, that's going to be so great.

  • And I love "Zootopia" and "Big Hero 6," two of my favorite Disney

  • movies, and to see them have animated series, the first Walt

  • Disney Animation Studios original

  • animated series for Disney+, that's going to be great.

  • I definitely want to see the world of "Zootopia"

  • explored even more and, of course, the further adventures

  • of Baymax.

  • The news does not stop there.

  • We are headed back to a galaxy far, far away for some more

  • Disney+ originals.

  • And, look, I know we were expecting Star Wars,

  • but I was not expecting for them to drop

  • such exciting news on us today.

  • I am absolutely pumped for "Andor," "Obi-Wan Kenobi,"

  • and my girl, Ahsoka Tano, getting her own

  • Disney+ original series.

  • I have a good feeling about this, all of this.

  • This is so great.

  • You know obviously Star Wars fans are very passionate, want

  • to see some more stories about some

  • of our favorite characters, and so

  • being able to have these Disney+ original series to be

  • able to expand the universe or get more

  • in deep with some of our favorite characters,

  • that's going to be great.

  • And then to see some of the actors returning to these roles

  • makes it even more authentic and perfect.

  • And I can't wait for all of them.

  • You just expressed everything that I wanted--

  • that I've been feeling when I was watching the news come out.

  • I'm just like, yes, I get to see more of these characters,

  • and also that some of it ties in with "The Mandalorian."

  • So this is just amazing.

  • The Force is strong with these original series.

  • And wrapping things up, of course, we gotta

  • talk
