John Travolta‘s daughter, Ella Bleu Travolta, will appear as one of the main characters in the upcoming movie Get Lost, her first feature, which is not in connection with her famous father.
20-year-old Ella will play Alice, one of the main characters in the new movie set to start filming this summer in Budapest.
It will tell the story of Alice, who embarks on a trip to fulfill her “mother’s last wish,” backpacking around Europe and meeting a variety of other characters along the way.
The synopsis of the film reads in full: “There, she meets not only a mysterious young man but a whole menagerie of individuals that take her on an odyssey that will open her heart and mind. In the end, her journey ends with a revelation and freedom.”
Ella Bleu Travolta happily announced the news via Instagram where she said: “I am very pleased to announce this opportunity that has come to me, and I am looking forward to working with Daniela Amavia and Michael Mendelsohn on this exciting new project! ❤️”
The script is written by Daniela Amavia and is a modern take on Lewis Carroll‘s classic, Alice in Wonderland, where the title character Alice falls down a rabbit hole into the “wonderland,” where she meets the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, and many other famous literary characters.
Get Lost reimagines the famous animals as humans, including a “strange girl” and a “mysterious man” who meet Alice on her trip around Europe.
Ella’s last role was in 2019, when she portrayed Becky Hunt in Eye for an Eye, alongside her father, who played the main character, Carson Phillips.
More than a decade ago, she appeared in Old Dogs, which starred John Travolta and Robin Williams. Ella played a character called Emily, at just 10 years old.
In recent months, the only daughter of John Travolta has been seen on social media with her father on a few occasions.
John Travolta posted a short video dancing with Ella last October as a tribute to his late wife, Kelly Preston, who would have been turning 58 years old on October 13.
Ella’s mother, Kelly, died last summer after a private battle with breast cancer, supported by her family and loved ones.
Ella and John Travolta were also seen dancing together earlier this year in a Scotts Miracle-Gro commercial for Super Bowl LV, where they recreated some of the iconic dance moves from 1978 cinema classic Grease.
