ABC is bringing us a new version of "Dirty Dancing," and if the first poster is any indication, it pays homage to its predecessor.

The poster, which was first revealed by EW, shows stars Abigail Breslin and Colt Prattes in a pose that any fan of the original will recognize. It's not the iconic lift, but it commemorates another special moment from the film's final dance number.

Like the 1987 classic, the remake follows the sheltered Baby (Breslin) as she falls in love with dance instructor Johnny (Prattes) one summer. With the new film spanning a whopping three hours, though, expect original elements as well. On top of songs from its predecessor, ABC's "Dirty Dancing" will include even more musical numbers.

Breslin opened up about some of the differences during a recent interview with Out magazine, making it clear that "it's a reimagining, not a reenactment."

"I'm not doing an imitation of Jennifer Grey's iconic performance in the original," she said. "Instead, I tried to see Baby as how she related to me, and hopefully I do the character justice."

The result of the movie, she said, is "dope," which isn't surprising considering the beloved story and stellar cast. The film also stars Debra Messing, Nicole Scherzinger, and Sarah Hyland, among others.

"Dirty Dancing" airs Wednesday, May 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
