Now that High School Musical 4 is officially happening, we were left wondering who exactly we're going to be following on their journey through East High. The Wildcats we all have come to know and love have graduated and moved on, but now, it's just been announced who the five new characters Disney Channel is currently casting are. And we can already tell things are going to be interesting! It looks like the focus will be on the soccer team, instead of the beloved basketball team, and this crop of characters is going to have even more drama than the original crew! Here's what we know so far:
Erin: She's the only girl on the boys' soccer team, who starts falling for the bad boy.
Derek: The resident bad boy Erin is crushing on who at his core, is a sweet guy after all. He plays soccer too and just so happens to be a fabulous dancer.
Campbell: He's the captain of the soccer team who excels in theater as well and just so happens to be Sharpay and Ryan Evans' cousin. ANOTHER EVANS FAMILY MEMBER THOUGH. Let's just process that. He has a crush on Erin, but as we already know, she has her sights on Derek so we totally sense a love triangle brewing here!
Nathalie: She's a cheerleader and Erin's best friend.
Tamara: She is on the cheer squad too, but she is no longer the star of the school, and this loss of attention and popularity is something she plans on reclaiming, no matter what.
Since an open casting call for these roles is going to take place, you can totally audition if you think you're a perfect fit for the Wildcat family. After all, this is the start of something new.
