    Hi! My name is Chelsea and I am a proud member of the High School Musical generation: I knew the dance to "We're All In This Together," I had a wall full of J-14 posters, and "Gotta Go My Own Way" was my first experience with heartbreak.

    Now, you may have heard about the new Disney+ original series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and thought, "Wow, that sounds insane. I'm just going to re-watch Lizzie McGuire."

    Honestly, that is exactly what my first reaction was too! Then I gave it a shot and I promise — if you're from the original Wildcat generation you will love this show.

    First, you should know it isn't a re-make or an updated take on the original High School Musical characters.

    The series is full of original High School Musical songs, but it also jam packed with gorgeous ballads, catchy dance numbers, and everything in between.

    My personal favorite songs are "Wondering" (a masterpiece, quite frankly, and the song Mrs. Darbus truly deserved in the movie) and "Just For A Moment," which was written by two stars of the series Joshua Bassett and Olivia Rodrigo. It's seriously incredible.

    5. The amazing female friendships.

    6. The set! (It's the real East High, guys!)

    7. The show's mockumentary style.

    8. The cast is incredible.
