With Olivia Newton-John hinting way back in 2017 that there might be some sort of *Grease reunion with John Travolta, there is excitement building up among the fans.
She had said that the team was “thinking up ways” to celebrate the 40 years. She had added that nothing was finalized yet.
Travolta had echoed his former co-star's cryptic message when he said that there was definitely something in the works.
He told The Mirror that he cannot announce the “big plans” but confessed that he could cry when he thought about it. He even promised that the fans would love it.
Social media has been talking about the movie and the special screening. A user on Facebook, Amy Nieves, said that the movie was still one of her favorites adding that she watched it 10 times when he hit the theaters in the late 70’s.
Another user, Leslie Oldfield Mangold, said that though she does not go to the theater often, she would definitely go for *Grease.
