With movies such as La La Land, Pitch Perfect and The Greatest Showman winning awards and basically taking over the world, we thought it was about time we looked at one of the best movie musicals that has graced our world. We couldn’t be talking about anything other than Grease!
Since the dawn of time – okay, the dawn of movies – we have watched movie musicals, but there are some that have stood tall against some of the amateur dramatics that has made their way onto our screens. We have been able to climb every mountain with the Von Trapp Family in The Sound of Music, we have been able to cut loose and kick off our Sunday shoes in Footloose, we have been able to think about what we’d do if we were a rich boy in Fiddler on the Roof, and we have been able to dream of being children of the revolution in Moulin Rouge!
However, there is one movie that we’re just completely and hopelessly devoted to… and that movie musical is Grease. After gracing our screens in 1978, Grease is still one of the greatest and most popular movie musicals of all time. Thanks to its epic storyline, its award-winning soundtrack, and its awesome cast, the movie is still a staple in every home across the world.
After all, where else would we get our fix of the T-Birds and the Pink Ladies? Following the lives of Danny Zuko, Sandy Olsson and the gang during their su-hu-mmer nights, Grease gives us the ultimate good-girl-bad-boy high school romance that we all love to sink our teeth into.
Because Grease is still so popular around the world, it’s hard to believe that the movie is now a whopping 40 years old! In that time, the cast have moved on from their roles, stepped away from Rydell High, entered the adult world, and some have even parted ways. So what are the cast of Grease up to nowadays? Well, read on to find out – but remember, Grease is the word…
