Danny and Sandy do the holidays!
Nearly 35 years after their smash hit Grease, John Travolta and his on-screen love interest Olivia Newton-John are coming together just like they did in the flick for a new Christmas-themed music video, “I Think You Might Like It.”
“We’re driving in a ’55 T-Bird and we’re dressed kind of like we were then. . . at the end of the video we are going off in the car like we did in Grease,” Newton-John, 64, tells Extra‘s Jerry Penacoli of her reunion with Travolta, 58, who played Danny opposite Newton-John’s Sandy.

Joined by music heavyweights like Barbra Streisand and Tony Bennett on their new album, This Christmas, released in November, Travolta tells Extra collaborating for their latest project was a no-brainer. “We were friends for all this time, and I think that speaks for itself. There’s nothing more magical than feeling bonded together,” he confirmed.
All proceeds from their album sales will go to The Jett Travolta Foundation — in memory of Travolta and Kelly Preston‘s son, who died in 2009 at age 16 — and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre in Melbourne, Australia. (2012 marks Newton-John’s 20th year cancer-free.)
“Every time I heard [our guest vocalists’] voices with our voices I cried,” Travolta said. “Their sentiment toward my son and toward Olivia’s hospital — the whole thing meant so much to me.”
