Summer Loving to be a prequel to Travolta film Grease

Summer Loving to be a prequel to Travolta film Grease

Essentially, it seems like it'll be a whole film made out of the lyrics of the song Summer Nights.

It's expected to explain how main characters Sandy and Danny met, expanding on the story told in the famous song Summer Nights from the 1978 film. The writer is a long-time collaborator of Tim Burton, starting with the script for 2003's Big Fish and continuing on through Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Corpse Bride, and Frankenweenie.

Who would you like to see cast in the Grease prequel?

The iconic film, which celebrated its 40th anniversary past 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.

Paramount Pictures is developing Summer Loving, a prequel to the epic 1978 musical Grease, which immortally highlighted the 50s high school love story of John Travolta's Danny and Olivia Newton-John's Sandy.

Clearly there are three sides to this story: Danny's, Sandy's, and John August's.

"The only prequel I want is one of Rizzo!" said another.

The soundtrack to the original Grease film was also a roaring success with over 38 million copies sold worldwide.

The prequel is set to center around Danny and Sandy's summer fling that is sung about in the original film. The far less popular "Grease 2" followed in 1982, and "Grease: Live" debuted on Fox in 2016, winning five Emmy Awards.
