They all come packaged in High School Musical and East High branded boxes, while the character’s signatures are written on the palette to recreate a yearbook page.

The scene features characters Ryan – who was confirmed as being gay by the film’s creator Kenny Ortega – and Chad who perform “I Don’t Dance”.
At the end of the number the pair are seen talking and eating food, but they’ve also swapped clothes, leading to viewers wondering if they’ve become more than just friends.
In 2020 Ortega said that he believed the character was “probably going to come out in college” in an interview with Variety. He continued: “It was less about coming out and just more about letting his true colours come forward.”
Ortega added: “I have to be honest with you. I didn’t think at the time – and Disney is the most progressive group of people I’ve ever worked with… I was concerned because it was family and kids, that Disney might not be ready to cross that line and move into that territory yet.
“So, I just took it upon myself to make choices that I felt that those who were watching would grab. They would see it, they would feel it, they would know it and they would identify with it. And that is what happened.”
The two characters, played by Lucas Grabeel and Corbin Bleu have become fan favourites of the franchise, with many ‘shipping’ their pair’s relationship.
While celebrating the film’s anniversary one fan tweeted pictures of the duo, captioning the post: “thank you chad and ryan for creating gay ppl”.
Another said: “happy anniversary to ryan and chad from high school musical”.
Somebody else wrote happy 15th birthday to the film, especially “the part after i don’t dance where chad and ryan fully swap outfits which goes completely unexplained”.
