      The Disney trilogy concludes with High School Musical 3: Senior Year, directed by the fabulous Kenny Ortega. There are songs galore and the typical high school angst of where to go to college and dealing with potential farewells of forever. This was the only one of the three movies to be a theatrical release, the first two having been Disney Channel specials. Nothing changed, though.

I smell foul.
