Recently, Priscilla got to Facebook to reveal what he has seen Elvis and praised Butler’s performance.

“For those interested in the new ELVIS film, director Baz Luhrmann provided a private screening for me and Jerry Schilling at Warner Studios recently,” Presley said. “This story is about the relationship between Elvis and Colonel Parker. It is a true story told brilliantly and creatively that only Buzz, in his unique artistic way, could perform. Austin Butler, who played Elvis is In the middle of the movie Jerry and I looked at each other and said WOW !!! Well done … he knew he had big shoes to fill in. He was very nervous playing this role.

“I like CVs, but this is not really a CV, right? It’s really about me in the ’50s and’ 60s and ’70s,” Luhrmann said. “And if you want to talk about America in the ’50s and’ 60s and the ’70s at the heart of culture, for good, for bad and for bad, it’s a figure [like] Elvis Presley. Like how Shakespeare would take a historical figure as king and explore a big issue, or Amadeus it’s not really about Mozart when you learn so much about Mozart, it’s about jealousy. What this movie is talking about is America in these three seasons – Elvis the Revolutionary, Elvis the highest paid actor in Hollywood and Elvis the living legend, the icon trapped in this hotel not 10 minutes from here, from a a man named Colonel Tom Parker. “
