Very underrated celebration of magic, romance and believing in your dreams and making them come true. Olivia Newton John has a natural, open-hearted and playful presence that fits the movie perfectly. There are 3 or 4 show stopping scenes: – The scene where the girls on the mural come alive and dance to the ELO song I'm Alive, – The scene where Olivia Newton John playfully flirts with Michael Beck as she roller skates to her song Magic – Gene Kelly reminisces about his experience with Olivia Newton John and ends up dancing with her – The scene inter-cutting the The Tubes playing and the big-band performing until their music merges together – The concluding dance number with different costumes and the title song being playedThere is a positive, optimistic spirit to the movie that comes across as very genuine and heartfelt.

I was in 2nd grade when I first saw this on TV and was completely drawn to Olivia, I credit her for being the first female to make me realize that there was something I liked very much about girls, …
I have read that a Xanadu remake is in the works right now! Its in the very early stages but how exciting! Here is part of what I have read:Sony Pictures CEO, Michael Lynton tells Hillel Italie of the Associated Press that a Xanadu remake/sequel "is imminent!" Weeks after negotiating a deal with MGM/MCA, the currently struggling studio responsible for the original 1980 box office disaster, Sony leaked its plans to re-launch the title with a whole new hyper-stylized approach.The rest is at The Mighty Tide Of Justice website. If it is really happening I can't imagine how great a current version made on a budget will be!
