HOLLYWOOD – Disney confirmed this morning that one of the proposed spin-off’s of the Stars Wars franchise will be based on the popular 50’s musicalGrease.
“It’s going to be a pretty faithful remake of the original Grease” said a chatty Jacobs.
Apprentice Sith Lord Danny Zucko lives on the Death Star. He falls for uptight Jedi in training Sandy Olsen during summer vacation but when he returns and finds Sandy has joined his school. He’s torn between his love for a rebel spy and his loyalty to the empire. To cut a long story short at the end Sandy puts on a pair of black hot pants and decides to join the dark side.
The music is what makes Grease and the lyrics are so well known we didn’t want to mess with them; but we have made a few subtle changes so there’s tracks like Jedi School Drop-out, Blue Moons, Tears on my Tie-Fighter, Hopelessly Devoted to the Emperor and You’re the Darth that I want.
“It beats them doing another f*cking Christmas Album,” said their irate agent.
