The movie, from Paramount Players, Temple Hill, and Picturestart, is poised to follow leading players Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson (Dumbrowski in the stage show) during their "Summer Nights" fling, as detailed from both perspectives early on.
The iconic film, which celebrated its 40th anniversary previous year, has remained a huge part of popular culture with Sandy's girl squad The Pink Ladies' jackets and John's signature quiff still a popular choice for fancy dress. What this news presupposes is, maybe it's not? Another fan made this point, who tweeted, "The movie itself said that they met in the beach the summer before so please don't ruin "Grease" and at the same time the prequel is already many years too late".
We're finally going to learn a whole lot more about that one summer night when Danny Zucko and Sandy Olsson met.

Johnson also says he's exhausted of being fined by the National Basketball Association for tampering. He was general manager when I was there and things didn't work out and he kind of went away.
There was even a TV special 'Grease Live!' - which saw Julianne Hough in her role of Sandy and Aaron Tveit as Danny - and Olivia had more positive things to say. After all, the original film did include an entire song devoted to explaining the very backstory Summer Nights purports to tackle. From the outside looking in, this prequel seems completely unnecessary.
Clearly there are three sides to this story: Danny's, Sandy's, and John August's.
The soundtrack to the original Grease film was also a roaring success with over 38 million copies sold worldwide.
