Most of the stars of "High School Musical" were still high school age themselves when they made the massively popular Disney movie back in 2005 ... and they've come a long way since!

And today, star Vanessa Hudgens' 24th birthday, we're checking in on how much the entire cast has changed in the almost 7 years since the movie first aired.

For Hudgens, she's been balancing sugary sweet roles in movies like "Beastly" and "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" with edgy, sexier fare like "Sucker Punch" and next year's "Spring Breakers" and "Machete Kills."

And while Disney super couple Vanessa and Zac split in 2010, she's rebounded with hottie Austin Butler ...who she sucks face with in public as much as possible.

Check out the gallery above to see how the rest of the cast has aged now that they're out of those awkward teen years!
