The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

It's no question that Grease is one of America's favorite musicals of all time, but things could have been much different that what we know and love today.

We just learned the electrifying news that Star Wars superstar Carrie Fisher was actually the top choice to play Sandy before producer/screenwriter Allan Carr eventually went with Olivia Newton-John.

That's not all — Marie Osmond, Susan Dey, and Deborah Raffin were originally in the mix while John Travolta's star-making turn as Danny was first offered to Henry Winkler!

So which other classic movies were very nearly completely different??

P.S. If neither Olivia nor Carrie are your particular cup of tea, make sure to catch Julianne Hough as Sandy when Grease: Live! airs Sunday, January 31 at 7 p.m. EST on FOX!

Srsly?!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been a MASSIVE hit at the box office and even sparked a new generation of interest in the sci-fi adventure!

Since the film was mainly made to attract a new fan base, it introduced several new characters like Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Finn (John Boyega), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Rey (Daisy Ridley).

While all the new characters have been great additions to the franchise, toy companies like Hasbro have already received some flak for not including Rey in most of their merchandise.

We thought they'd learn their mistake the first time around, but apparently Hasbro is at it again and they somehow left out Ridley's character AGAIN… this time in their Star Wars-themed Monopoly game.

According to the the description on the toy company's website, the game only features four player tokens, all of which are male

The smart folks at Disney had a hunch that Star Wars: The Force Awakens would obliterate the box office its opening weekend — because they paid the actors VERY handsomely!

But in a new report, the franchise newbies' salaries didn't hold a lightsaber to that of the OG space explorer Han Solo, aka Harrison Ford!

According to The Daily Mail's math, the actor could make more than $34 million for his role in the seventh installment of the blockbuster series when all is said and done!

But because the film was directed by J.J. Abrams, there was a lot of secrecy around the project — which meant a lot of surprises and cameos!

Sure, we already knew about Simon Pegg's character and Daniel Craig's recently confirmed role as a stormtrooper, but we had no idea Ewan McGregor was going to be a part of the film!
