OK, so I caved. I watched High School Musical 3 and enjoyed it. After my previous blog post where I grumbled about the franchise escalating out of control, I felt I should watch the latest film. I was really pleasantly surprised. The finale of the series (above) is very touching and signifies the end of the cast’s association with the films. Disney were appearing to be ending on a high and went up in my estimations. Then I found this and started to grumble again. Children need to learn that things don’t last forever and that all good things must come to an end. I think Disney need to learn this too.
In the meantime I am looking forward to watching Studio Ghibli’s latest animation Ponyo, which looks original and breathtaking.
