** Creator/JohnTravolta and Olivia Newton-John were expected to reprise their roles as Danny and Sandy, but nothing came of it. There were also plans for Jeff Conway and Stockard Channing to have a cameo. According to Didi Conn [[http://www.digitalspy.com/movies/good-morning-britain/news/a856740/grease-secret-frenchy-actress-didi-conn-good-morning-britain/ in a May 2018 interview]], a direct sequel was always intended and a line of dialogue about "see you in summer school" at the end of the first movie was intended to be the SequelHook, but the studio expected the film to be no more than a moderate one-off hit; by the time it became clear that the film more than justified a sequel, the original cast were not available to film a sequel.

* OldShame: Creator/ MichellePfeiffer joked that she showed the film to her kids and they turned it off after twenty minutes. While filming ''Film/{{Stardust}}'', Creator/MatthewVaughn told her that this was his favourite film of hers, her response was a FlatWhat.
-->I thought he was pulling my leg...It was my role in ''that'' that made him want to work with me.
* StarDerailingRole:
** Maxwell Caulfield blamed this film for killing his budding Hollywood career. After the movie bombed, Paramount dropped his contract. In his own words, "It took me ten years to get over ''Grease 2.''" (He did find relative success on the ''Series/{{Dynasty}}'' spin-off ''Series/TheColbys'' only three years after this film.)
