    About the High School Musical 2: Extended Edition DVD

    High School Musical 2, the most highly anticipated sequel of the year, comes to DVD and Blu-ray(TM) High-Def in an extended edition on December 11, 2007 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. There's a special bonus musical scene available only on DVD and Blu-ray(TM) High-Def, seamlessly integrated into the film, in which audiences can finally see the musical number Troy and Sharpay rehearse in the film but never perform. The scene features Sharpay playing the Pineapple Princess looking for her Fresh Fish Prince in the lavish Polynesian fantasy "Humuhumunukunukua'pua'a", in which Sharpay goes all out to win Troy- and the Star Dazzle Award at the Midsummer Night's Talent Show. The number is complete with a hip hop ode to Mighty Mount Fufu. High School Musical 2 pops with more of the infectious music, high energy dancing and exuberant young cast that created worldwide High School Musical-mania, and brings back Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay and the entire Wildcat gang in another spectacular must-own musical experience! High School Musical 2: Extended Edition is packed with bonus material including music videos and sing-along and karaoke features!
