Ashley Tisdale as Sharpay EvansAshley Tisdale is set to return as character Sharpay Evans in a new film.

The actress will return to the Disney channel for Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure, a spinoff off the popular musical franchise. The project is set to be filmed this summer and will be released in 2011.

Ashley, 24, who will also be an executive producer on the movie, will be the only returning original member of the HSM cast.

The plot will see Sharpay and her dog, Boi, make their way from fictional school East High to Broadway after being spotted by talent scouts. During her attempt to become a theater star, she meets her match in a rival starlet.

This movie captures the absolutely perfect next chapter in Sharpay’s life, as she tries to cultivate the humanity buried, deep, deep within her - a challenging and hilarious endeavour,” Gary Marsh, chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide, said in a statement.

Ashley’s last Disney film, 2008’s , took in more than $250 million at the box office worldwide. The young actress has since starred in Aliens In The Attic as well as released two pop albums, Headstrong in 2007 and Guilty Pleasure in 2009.
