High School Musical: The Musical: The Series may have dropped its Season 1 finale January 10, but there's still joy coming out of East High. Series leads Joshua Bassett and Olivia Rodrigo dropped the official music video the song they co-wrote for Episode 9, “Just for a Moment.”
The video (above) features their live performance of the original song.
Created by Tim Federle (Broadway’s Tuck Everlasting, Better Nate Than Never series), HSMTMTS follows the “real” students of East High in Salt Lake City, Utah—where the original Disney Channel Original Movie High School Musical was filmed—as they stage the school’s first production of High School Musical: The Musical. Bassett and Rodrigo play Ricky and Nini, two high school teens reeling after a break-up and navigating the fact that they still have to play opposite each other in the fall musical.
The music video was executive produced by Micah Bickham and produced by Maddy Schmidt and Sacha Thompson with direction by Bram VanderMark. It was edited by Ramy Elsokary.
The full album of music from the series (songs from the original movie sung by the new cast as well as original songs from the 10-episode season), is currently streaming and available for purchase on Walt Disney Records.
HSMTMTS has been renewed for a second season. Watch the first season of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series on Disney+.
