The role of Stephanie Zanoni was originally slated for Pat Benatar, which is why the song "Cool Rider" has such an early 80's, hard rocker chick sound to it.

According to Olivia Newton-John, while at one point, studio talk of Grease 2 included John and Olivia and the original cast, she was never officially asked to participate in Grease 2.

Michelle Pfeiffer had this as one of her first castings as an unknown and she sang all her songs.

The twins who played the overly happy cheerleaders were living their adult lives seperately; one in LA and one in New York, both unaware that the other was auditioning for the same movie until they were brought together on the set.
Deleted Scenes
When movies are made, scenes are often left on the cutting room floor.

I remember from the HBO version I saw as a kid, that the talent show was longer overall, and Michael and Stephanie had another few sentences of speaking in the "Turn Back the Hands of Time" song sequence. As soon as it was released on VHS, these were shortened, sadly!
Alternate Versions
Sometimes, there will be several versions of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may release a special cut of the movie.
