More than 40 years after Grease‘s release, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John are back as Danny and Sandy!
The pair reunited and dressed up as their iconic lovebird characters during the Meet n’ Grease sing-along event at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida on Friday.
Newton-John shared a photo where can be seen wearing a yellow cardigan and matching skirt similar to the outfit her character wore in the 1978 film, while her former costar rocked an all-black ensemble.
Newton-John captioned the candid snapshot,
“First time in costume since we made the movie. So excited!!”
Newton-John ditched her “good girl” look for a look-alike to her original black leather jacket that she was just regifted by the man who bought it for $243,000.
Their costumed reunion came after a month after Newton-John auctioned to raise funds for the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Center, the movie memorabilia was recently returned to the star to put on permanent display at the Melbourne, Australia-based research institute.
She joined Travolta for a Q&A with fans following the sing-along. They are both scheduled to make an appearance at the Meet n’ Grease event in Tampa today and tomorrow in Jacksonville on Dec. 15.
In PEOPLE’s Grease! 40th-anniversary special edition issue, Newton-John opened up about her enduring friendship with Travolta, sharing that
“John always reaches out” during tough times.
Travolta said in the 2018 issue,
“When you share that kind of meteoric success—and nothing has been able to exceed it—you share a bond“I’ve been through her having a child, getting divorced, losing her sister. She’s been through my getting married, having children. It’s wonderful and full of shared memories.”
“We did something life-changing, making that film. [At the premiere] you got the feeling from the energy that something was happening. It was a huge response. I feel grateful to be a part of that and to have worked with him. We’ve stayed friends ever since.”
