You wanna hear somethin' crazy? The May 24 premiere of ABC’s Dirty Dancing is less than a month away.
That’s right, the countdown has begun (whether we like it or not) for the return of Baby, Johnny and the “Time of My Life” crew in a—we could go either way on how this will turn out—reboot of the 30-year-old film.
We already had a first look at Abigail Breslin and newcomer Colt Prattes as the cult classic’s leading couple. And now, as shown in the newly released 30-second promo, the remake will, in fact, valiantly attempt to recreate the most memorable Dirty Dancing moments. The dance lessons in the gazebo, all of the fan-favorite songs and don’t even get us started on the lift. *Half cringing, half brimming with excitement*
Oh, and if you’ve ever wondered what happened to the characters after the big finale dance number, the reboot is supposed to stretch beyond the original story line and answer the questions that have (apparently) been haunting us for the past 30 years.
Totally ranks up there with finding the answer to the meaning of life.
