This could be the “start of something new.”

Zac Efron revealed he is very open to the possibility of returning to the Disney franchise “High School Musical” for a reboot – if one were to be made.

When asked during an interview with E! News if he would be interested, the 34-year-old said “of course.”

“I mean to have an opportunity in any form to go back and work with that team would be so amazing,” the “Firestarter” actor said. “My heart is still there. That would be incredible. I hope it happens. ”

“High School Musical” first aired on Disney Channel in 2006 and was followed by a sequel in 2007. A third film, “High School Musical 3: Senior Year,” was released in theaters in 2008.

The franchise’s legacy currently lives in the Disney + series “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.” The show features a new cast of teenage theater kids who embark on a journey to stage “High School Musical” as their school production.

“My heart is still there. That would be incredible. I hope it happens, ”Efron said.

Last year, the original film’s star Monique Coleman – who played Taylor McKessie – told Insider that her character always wore headbands, claiming that the makeup and hair crew didn’t know how to style black hair.

“We’ve grown a lot in this industry and we’ve grown a lot in representation and we’ve grown a lot in terms of understanding the needs of an African-American actress,” Coleman, 40, said.

“But the truth is, is that they had done my hair, and they had done it very poorly in the front,” she said.

She remembered that she recommended the stylists “incorporate headbands into her character” and “just make that a part of who she is.” The team at Disney was “very open to [the] feedback, ”she said.

Coleman noted that despite the crew’s inexperience, she loved the opportunity to become a role model for young girls of color.

“I’m really grateful to have been someone who was able to bring representation at a time where there wasn’t much, and I’m so happy when I see this next generation of young artists and there just being so much more room for people of color, ”she said.
