Old fan theories are trending about “Grease”, saying that Sandy and Danny are actually DEAD, and the movie is just a fantasy running through one of their brains as they pass away.
In “Grease”, the perfect high school fantasy comes true for Sandy and Danny. But was it too good to be true? About three years ago, there was a Reddit discussion about how one or both of them are actually DEAD. For some reason, it just started trending again, and people are losing their minds over it. So here are some of the theories . . .
1. Danny did NOT save Sandy on the beach on the day they met. He tried to, but she drowned. And the whole movie is just a “vivid coma fantasy” her oxygendeprived brain is cooking up as she’s dying. That’s why the movie gets, quote, “increasingly outlandish as time passes,” ending with her and Danny flying into the sky in a red convertible.
2. SOME of the movie really happens, but Sandy kills herself, and the REST of it is her fantasy. Apparently, it happens after she sings “Look at me I’m Sandra Dee” . . . because the last line is, “Goodbye to Sandra Dee”. And then, quote, “Everything that happens in the last scene is just a little too perfect. Danny and Sandy are back together despite everything, Rizzo suddenly isn’t pregnant and Kenickie suddenly decides that he actually loves her. “The geeky kid gets onto the sports team, EVERYTHING is suddenly ok, just the
way that sweet, innocent Sandy would have wanted it to be. And in the last shot of the movie, she flies up to heaven with her dream boyfriend in her magic flying car.”
3. Sandy and Danny are BOTH dead. Danny tries to save Sandy at the beach, but neither of them survive. And the movie is actually HIS vision. That’s why the girl’s name is SANDY. You know, because of the beach. (Danny wasn’t the smartest guy at Rydell, right?)
