Graceland in Memphis has unveiled a new exhibition titled “The Making of ELVIS” to celebrate the film’s worldwide success.
The exhibition, done in partnership with Warner Bros., National Film and Sound Archives of Australia, and Baz Luhrmann, looks at the beginning of the creative process for the film and follows the journey to the big screen.
Highlights of the exhibition include behind-the-scenes videos of the making of the film, including videos shot while researching Memphis and Tupelo, the set build in Australia, and rehearsals, plus handwritten notes, drafts of scripts, storyboards, and more.
Props from the film, set pieces, and costumes and accessories worn by Austin Butler (Elvis), Tom Hanks (Colonel Tom Parker), Olivia DeJonge (Priscilla) and other actors will also be on display, plus a look at the worldwide media frenzy surrounding the film.
The ELVIS Movie UVIP Tour will explore Elvis Presley’s Memphis and Graceland Mansion with a private tour guide that will feature insight into the extensive research done by Baz Luhrmann while at Graceland, along with the stories of the real-life artifacts replicated in the movie.
