John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John are back and better than ever as Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsson 41 years after their ‘Grease’ debut. The film couple and real-life friends recreated their iconic characters for a special sing-along event in West Palm Beach, Fla. on Friday night. Olivia Newton-John revealed the first look of the duo dressed as their movie characters from 1978 and told fans it’s the “first time in costume since we made the movie,” and added that she was “so excited!!”
In the snap, John Travolta is seen in his iconic T-Bird gear including his leather biker jacket, black jeans, and a matching shirt. The 65-year-old star’s brown hair stands tall and full just like Danny Zuko’s did all those years ago. Olivia Newton-John looks amazing in her sweet Sandy gear prior to turning into the bad girl smoke machine. In the photo, she’s seen wearing a white button-up shirt with long yellow skirt and matching cardigan. Holding hands with her hunky co-star, the 71-year-old starlet is photographed with a giant smile plastered across her face.
“Meet ‘N Grease” is scheduled to take place over the next three days in the Sunshine State and will feature a question and answer session with everyone’s favorite Rydell High king and queen! The duo first made the announcement about the event back in October. Last year, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John got together for the first time in several years for the 40th anniversary of the blockbuster movie. The duo joined together for a screening and reminisced about the best part of filming together.
John Travolta revealed that “Meeting Olivia, beyond a shadow of a doubt,” was his best memory of the entire experience. Olivia Newton-John mirrored her co-star’s answer and told E! News, “I have to say the same because John talked me into doing it and that was a magical day.” It’s great to see the two stars back together, especially because Oliva has been so open with fans about her stage 4 cancer. In August, she sat down with “60 Minutes Australia” and said that her cancer is back and more aggressive than ever. At the time, Travolta spoke out about Newton-John’s health news stating, “She looks incredible. She doesn’t look any different than years ago and I’m very proud of her.”
