Grease is celebrating it's 40th Anniversary with a Rydell High Yearbook Package Giveaway

On June 16, 2018 Grease celebrates it's 40th year since the day the film became famous. The Summer love of Sandy and Johnny...was ending, so they thought until Sandy shows up at Johnny's school. He was so surprised and happy, but oops, keep it cool for the boys Johnny. 

The school year continues and Sandy and Johnny are not an item, as in not dating. What Johnny and Sandy don't know about each other is that they are trying to change, to be like one and other. At the School's out for Summer carnival all is revealed at what Johnny accomplished and what Sandy has done to change her looks, and wow! Look out boys. Sandy has become the girl no one can take their eyes off of.

I'd love to see more of the gang and an alternate ending-like what if Sandy and Johnny never got back together? Or they got married and had children? Or, they have they fall in love with someone else-nah that wouldn't happen.

Anyway the 40th Anniversary edition is now available in stores and online, so get your copy for Summer movie night in the backyard or a rainy night cozied up in the living room. Make it a girls night in, or just date night. The anniversary edition has extras, like a yearbook-yes a book, bonus features, and even better this time around.  John Travolta never gets old, and Olivia Newton John is just as cute as can be, so I'm set to watch GREASE again!

40 Years Later, It’s Still the Word
GREASE
Relive the Classic ‘50s Celebration with a New 40th Anniversary Edition Featuring Fully Restored Picture and Sound and New Bonus Content on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital April 24, 2018

              HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – It’s got a groove, it’s got a meaning…and it’s still a cultural phenomenon 40 years after its original release.  The iconic celebration of high school life in the 1950s, GREASE is the way you’ll be feeling with a new 40th Anniversary Edition on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital April 24, 2018 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. 

             Featuring an explosion of song and dance, as well as star-making performances from John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, GREASEmade an indelible impact on popular culture.  40 years later, the film remains an enduring favorite as legions of new fans discover the memorable moments, sensational soundtrack and classic love story.  Boasting unforgettable songs including “Greased Lightnin,” “Look At Me, I’m Sandra Dee,” “Summer Nights,” “Hopelessly Devoted To You,” “Beauty School Drop Out” and, of course, “Grease,” the film is a timeless feel-good celebration.

              Paramount worked with director Randal Kleiser to restore GREASE to its original vibrancy with the highest quality sound, picture resolution and color.  The original negative was scanned and received extensive clean up and color correction using previously unavailable digital restoration tools such as high dynamic range technology.  In addition, the audio was enhanced from a six-track mix created for an original 70mm release, giving the music more clarity.  The resulting picture and sound create an exceptional home viewing experience. 

The GREASE 40th Anniversary Edition 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Combo Packs include the fully restored version of the film plus an all-new, in-depth exploration of the little-known origins of what would become a Broadway play and then a feature film and worldwide phenomenon.  “Grease: A Chicago Story” features new interviews with writer Jim Jacobs and original cast members of the Chicago show.  In addition, the discs include the original song the title sequence was animated to and an alternate ending salvaged from the original black & white 16mm work print discovered by director Randal Kleiser. 

Both the 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Combo Packs also feature more than an hour of previously released bonus material, including a sing-along, vintage interviews with the cast, deleted scenes and more.  Plus, the Blu-ray Combo comes in collectible packaging with 16 pages of images laid out like a high school yearbook.  In addition, a Grease Collection will be available in a Steelbook Locker, which includes the 40th Anniversary Blu-ray of Grease, as well as Grease 2 and Grease: Live! on Blu-ray for the first time.
