High School Musical causes mayhem

The stars of High School Musical face their noisy fans

Fans of High School Musical whipped themselves up into a frenzy as they got the chance to meet their idols at the launch of the second film.

Many kids even camped overnight at a music shop in London to make sure they got a good look at their movie heroes.

Zac Efron, Vanessa Anne Hudgens, Lucas Grabeel and co all turned up to meet their fans at HMV, where the DVD went on sale on Wednesday.

One boy told the BBC: "It's unreal, it's like my dream."

Fans were chanting 'We want Zac' for ages until the stars of the musical appeared.

And it wasn't just the kids who were excited.

The young actors themselves were a bit overwhelmed too!

Zac Efron, who plays Troy, told the BBC: "You can never get used to it. It's an adventure every time."

And Vanessa Anne Hudgens, who plays Gabriella, added: "When it all started to blow up, it was insane. It really hasn't sunk in yet."

And the good news for fans is that there's also talk of a High School Musical 3.

High School Musical 2 also smashed a TV record in America, after about 17.2m people tuned in to watch it when it was first shown last week.
