Is Camp Rock the next High School Musical?

Disney is hoping so. The cable network is already planning the sequel to the movie musical, which aired on the Disney Channel last Friday.

The movie premiered to 8.9 million viewers, second only to Disney’s juggernaut High School Musical 2, which debuted with 17.2 million viewers in August. Another 3.6 million viewers tuned in for an encore on ABC the following night.

The Jonas Brothers and Disney newcomer Demi Lovato, who starred in Camp Rock, are expected to return for the sequel — as long as they can fit it into their schedules. The four start on tour together July 4 and are starring in their own Disney Channel original series this fall. The boys will play spies in J.O.N.A.S., while Lovato is a small town girl in the big city in Welcome to Mollywood. –Emmet Sullivan
