The new Dirty Dancing cast is here to remind you that nobody puts Baby in a corner.
Fans of the 1987 classic have something to look forward to because Dirty Dancing is coming back May 24 to ABC. The original flick will be remade into a three-hour TV musical based in the 1960s. The star-studded cast is led by Abigail Breslin and Colt Prattes in the roles of Frances "Baby" Houseman and Johnny Castle respectively.
Plus, the movie is bringing back fan-favorite songs like "Time of My Life," "Love Man," "Do You Love Me," "Hungry Eyes," and "She’s Like the Wind."
Abigail admitted that nailing the dance scenes in the movie was the most challenging part of the role.
"I was like, 'Ugh, I want to be like Baby. I want to dance like that. But I’m the most uncoordinated human being on the face of the Earth, so it didn’t seem like a likely scenario for me," she told Entertainment Tonight. "I was terrified. I could, like, feel my heart racing so much. And then when I was up there and we held it, I was just like, ‘Ahhh! I did it. I’m here.'”
Sarah Hyland — who plays her big sister in the film — added: "I wanted to cry. When I saw Abby do the lift for the first time… I've known Abby since she was one, I was six. To see her conquer something like that is really amazing because I really do feel like a big sister to her, in real life as well as the film."
How sweet — we can't wait to watch!
