New Netflix film Work It has been compared to classic dance films by fans of the streaming service.
The film follows teen dancer Quinn Ackerman (Sabrina Carpenter) whose entire life plan rests on whether she wins a dance competition.
Quinn is so intent on getting into the dance academy of her dreams that she forms an unlikely group of dancers to smash the competition: the fiercest dance squad in the school.
In addition to pop star/actress Sabrina, the cast also features YouTube star Liza Koshy and The Flash actor Keiynan Lonsdale.
Elsewhere, Broadway and Grease Live! star Jordan Fisher also features as one of the performers in the energetic film.
The punchy trailer was already been released from Netflix last month, but fans are convinced that Work It looks like a lot like dance film classics from yesteryear, including the Step Up and Bring It On film series.

Naturally, they took to social media to share their views on the similarities between the films.
One Netflix fan wrote on Twitter: "Not this just being the plot of the second bring it on movie. y’all are NOT slick. And”pls let my feet have swagger”…..y’all need to fire the whole writing team."
Another Twitter user thought it resembled another dance classic, however: "So it’s basically uh…Step Up 2".

Meanwhile, a different person commented: "We have seen this film, we know this film so why are you giving us something exactly like it AGAIN ??"
Elsewhere, one Netflix follower tweeted: "Not this being the storyline of Step Up [crying emojis]".
Another person questioned: "Aren’t there like 50 different films like this ?"
Alternatively, one optimistic follower of the film wrote: "I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched this trailer because I’m so freaking PUMPED".
