Many familiar faces from the smash hit musical comedy Grease return to the campus, and the new ones are equally memorable in this happy tribute to straight skirts, girl-chasing and young love. It's 1961, two years after the original Grease gang graduated from Rydell High, and there's a new crop of seniors. The Pink Ladies and the T-Birds are still the epitome of cool, except that over the summer, something's happened to Stephanie (Michelle Pfeiffer in her first starring role), the sorority leader. She feels she's outgrown Johnny (Adrian Zmed), the head T-Bird, and is looking for a new love—one who's cooler and whose bike is even hotter. Meanwhile, newcomer Michael (Maxwell Caulfield) is smitten with Stephanie, who won't even notice him. The conflict is on and the Rydell High fun takes off to new heights.
