Get ready to cut "Footloose," y'all. The best movie ever to feature a man who is not Kevin Bacon dancing on and around a Volkswagen Beetle is hitting stores on DVD and Blu-ray next month, and we've got some EXCLUSIVE goodies to whet your appetite in advance of the big release! First up, a never-before-seen, behind-the-scenes look at the making of the epic final scene, where (spoiler alert!) the teenage denizens of Forbidden Dancing-ville all get together for a high-kicking, butt-shaking prom to end all proms.
This sneak peek at the choreography and rehearsal process for the film's big finale just goes to show how hard everyone worked to keep "Footloose" true to its 1980s predecessor; Kenny Wormald even put his moves to the test in an exact duplication of some of our favorite Bacon-y footwork from the original (not to mention wearing the signature bow tie and raspberry-colored jacket!)
And if you think this looks like fun, guess what: you, too, could cut footloose at your very own dance inspired by the film. Paramount is offering one fleet-footed fan a chance to host a "Footloose" dance at his or her school with a DJ, a handful of party-starting professionals, a dance contest and other fancy accoutrements. How to enter: visit the movie's official Facebook page to enter your school in the running and get details on getting the word out. Everybody cut! EVERYBODY CUT!
"Footloose" hits DVD and Blu-ray March 6.
