A fake trailer for a fourth installment of the wildly popular High School Musical film franchise made fans' hopes soar—before DASHING THEM TO PIECES.
The convincing teaser for the non-existent Once a Wildcat purported to show the original cast ten years later. It had a dramatic feel, which might be appealing to the more mature sensibilities of millennials who grew up with the original films.

Don't get your hopes up that it will be nearly as good as the original, though. Let's not forget Saved by the Bell: The New Class.
