ABC has been working on a musical remake of the classic 80s film Dirty Dancing for a while now, but we haven't gotten to see much of what the TV movie will actually look like. Sure, we've known who will be playing key characters like Baby and Johnny and Marjorie, but we haven't seen them in costume for truly iconic moments... until now. Members of the Dirty Dancing cast have taken to social media to share pics of filming, and they recreate some of the most iconic moments from the original. Take a look!
Warning: spoilers ahead if you don't know the story of Dirty Dancing.
Leading lady Abigail Breslin shared this photo of Baby on Instagram, standing in her classic back-bending pose while doing her dirtiest dance yet with the hunky Johnny in his room. Colt Prattes even seems to be wearing the same (admittedly somewhat minimal) outfit that Patrick Swayze wore in the original Dirty Dancing scene. Evidently the new Baby and Johnny will find the same way of blowing off steam as their predecessors.
Colt Prattes had a photo of his own to share. He posted a pic that could only come from the epic final dance between Johnny and Baby, when he shows the entire crowd just why Baby doesn't belong in a corner.
This time, Abigail Breslin seems to be the one wearing the ensemble similar to the one from the original movie. The dress doesn't appear to be an identical copy to the one worn by Jennifer Grey in her unforgettable "I've Had The Time of My Life" sequence, but we can bet there there will be as many swirls when she twirls as Grey ever had. It also looks like Breslin is singing in this picture, so there will definitely be some major differences between the 2017 version of the big dance and the 1987 version.
Given that the Dirty Dancing remake won't debut until May, I know I'm glad to see a sneak peek of the action that awaits. As a lover of the original, I've been a little bit nervous about what the remake would do with iconic moments, but it looks like the new version will be honoring them.
Abigal Breslin and Colt Prattes weren't the only two Dirty Dancing cast members to share images from the set of the remake. Continue on to the next page to see even more sneak peeks!
