If the film had notably been presented on the sidelines of the Cannes Film Festival, the King’s family also had the chance to see the feature film. Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis Presley, wrote on her Instagram account about her: “You will witness Baz’s pure love, care and respect for my father throughout this magnificent film, a work of which myself, my children and their children can finally be proud forever. What moved me to tears was seeing Riley, Harper and Finley (his children, editor’s note) after the film, all three were visibly upset, so filled with pride for their grandfather and his heritage, I never seen them like this before. »
Celebrate the legacy of Elvis Presley
It is therefore with happiness that Lisa Marie Presley joined Baz Luhrmann and Austin Butler on June 21 on Hollywood Boulevard. And the King’s daughter was not alone since her mother, Priscilla Presley, as well as her three daughters, Riley, Harper and Finley, were present. The reunited family left their fingerprints alongside those of Elvis Presley. A way to honor his legacy. Check out all the photos from the ceremony.
