Candace Cameron Bure recently chatted with Entertainment Tonight, and during her interview shared a few interesting similarities between her Fuller House grown-up character DJ Tanner and her Full House and Fuller House dad Danny Tanner (played by Bob Saget).

"She is a little bit like Danny Tanner as a dad," Candace Cameron Bure said of DJ. "She's very organized and orderly. She's a single mom, so she kind of has to be with three kids, and she's the mom of the group in every way, between Kimmy and Stephanie."

"I can honestly say that every scene with Andrea Barber [Kimmy] and Jodie Sweeten [Stephanie] and the legacy cast--they are forever just a huge part of my heart and just so much fun," she added. "I hope everyone loves the show as much as we [loved] doing it because we want to be back for years and years and years."

A new teaser trailer for Fuller House aired for the first time in recent days, replete with the Full House theme song, "Everywhere You Look." In it, fans get their first look at grown up versions of Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and Andrea Barber's characters--and more.

Are you excited to see Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin, and the rest (all but Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen) of the Full House gang return to TV via Netflix in Fuller House? It will be fun to see if DJ Tanner's parenting style truly mimics that of Danny Tanner's.

Fans don't have long to wait. The Netflix series premieres on February 26.
