Priscilla: Potential cast, plot, release date and everything we know so far
Priscilla is a 2023 American biographical drama film written, directed, and produced by Sofia Coppola, based on Priscilla Presley’s (who serves as an executive producer) and Sandra Harmon’s 1985 biography Elvis and Me. It chronicles Presley’s (Cailee Spaeny’s) life and her connection with Elvis Presley (Jacob Elordi).
Priscilla Presley’s biography Elvis and Me, which describes their courtship and early years together, served as the inspiration for Coppola’s film Priscilla.

One of the most contentious issues in the rock star’s personal life is his relationship with Priscilla. The story of Priscilla Presley’s meeting Elvis, her marriage to him, and the events that ultimately led to their breakup and divorce serves as the basis for the film Priscilla. The book was adapted by Larry Peerce into the same-titled Made For TV film. Even though Priscilla was just fourteen when she met Elvis, pop culture treats their romance as a contemporary fairy tale, and their intense love for one another is an often recounted story. According to Coppola, the film would mostly center on Priscilla Presley, with Elvis practically serving as a supporting character and having very little of a role in the movie.
