You can check out the trailer below:

The film stars Cailee Spaeny as Priscilla. You'll likely recognize Cailee from her important role as Erin McMenamin in Mare of Easttown.

Jacob Elordi, who you'll know from Euphoria and the upcoming film Saltburn, plays Elvis.

This is, of course, not the first Elvis film to drop in the past two years. Last year, Austin Butler received an Oscar nomination for his role as the Memphis legend in Baz Luhrmann's epic, Elvis, which was released last year.

However, Sofia's film looks to be quite different tonally than Baz's movie, as her film is based on Priscilla's 1985 memoir, Elvis and Me.

If you didn't know, Priscilla met Elvis when she was 14 and he was 24. In 1967, she married the singer at age 21. He was 32. They divorced in 1973.

The trailer quickly hints that the movie will look at Priscilla's difficulties with their marriage and yearning for a life of her own.

Among the many takeaways from the trailer, fans quickly noted that Jacob appears to once again be playing a troubled man. As Euphoria fans know, his character Nate Jacobs on the show struggled with a variety of issues including his upbringing, identity, and violence.

These of course aren't the only reactions. Others are simply excited to see Sofia return with her first major movie since 2020. Check out these reactions and more below:
