The first pics from 'Grease: Live' are here and they're electrifying
It’s time to start practicing your hand-jiving: Fox just released photos from the upcoming Grease: Live production! This is the first glimpse inside the remake, and we’re happy to see Sandy, Rizzo, and bad boy T-bird Danny Zuko looking as slick as ever.
Julianne Hough definitely delivers as good girl Sandy, but she is also giving us so much life in those tight black pants, red lipstick, and big hair. Aaron Tveit as Danny Zuko and Vanessa Hudgens as Rizzo are also pictured in their all-black leather best. Not shown: the highly-coveted pink leather Pink Ladies moto jacket.
According to Deadline, the production is said to be based more on the original musical (which was far more risque than the 1978 film rendition), although these images definitely seem to take inspiration from the movie version.
The highly anticipated special will be broadcasted January 31st on Fox from 7 to 10pm on either coast. Only the East Coast gets an actual live version; those of us on the West Coast will experience a 3-hour tape delay. Other cast members include Carlos PenaVega as Kenickie, Keke Palmer as Marty, and Carly Rae Jepsen as our favorite beauty school dropout, Frenchie. We. Cannot. Wait.
