The iconic roles include:

DANNY TANNER: Garrett Brawith (Rolling) as Bob Saget
JOEY GLADSTONE: Justin Mader (Death Race) as Dave Coulier
JESSE KATSOPOLIS: Justin Gaston (Days of Our Lives) as John Stamos
REBECCA DONALDSON: Stephanie Bennett (Big Eyes) as Lori Loughlin
D.J. TANNER: Shelby Armstrong and Brittney Wilson (Rogue) as the younger and older versions of Candace Cameron
STEPHANIE TANNER: Dakota Guppy (The Returned) and Jordyn Olson (The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story) as the younger and older versions of Jodie Sweetin
