"It was such a whirlwind. It felt like we were kinda swept up into this vacuum," Hudgens said of the Disney Channel movie's success. "At one point it literally felt like we were the Beatles."
"It's amazing. For me, I kind of embrace the 'I want it all' of [my character] Sharpay," Tisdale added. "And I'm doing it all. Got a clothing line, a makeup line coming out, [I'm] producing [and have] a movie coming out in May. It's been insane."
"It's their optimism, their dedication and their extraordinary talent -- as a group -- that made this such an exceptional movie and cultural phenomenon," Disney Channels Worldwide president Gary Marsh said in a press release.
"Ten years later, the movie continues to delight audiences around the globe, not just for its memorable song and dance numbers, but for its universal themes that continue to resonate with fans everywhere -- express yourself, believe in yourself and always follow your dreams."
The cast also filmed segments to air during Disney Channel's telecast of "High School Musical" at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday. The co-stars will appear again on a Radio Disney Insider interview Thurs., Jan. 21 on the Disney Channel and the Radio Disney app.

"It's so important that throughout success we remember where we came from. Always be grateful and always remain good people," Tisdale tweeted Monday. The actress also shared a photo of herself with Hudgens, Coleman, Bleu and Grabeel at the reunion.
