The Travolta family has made their first public appearance since the death of their son, Jett, at the beginning of this year.
John Travolta, wife Kelly Preston and daughter Ella Blue took the stage at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim on Friday, where they greeted the crowd and posed for photos. The stars appeared to promote their new movie, “Old Dogs,” which features the whole family – including Ella Blue in her screen debut.
“I appreciate the audience’s love for me,” John told the crowd, according to online reports. “I hope they love ‘Old Dogs’ as much as we do, because it’s got my baby in it.”
Just last month, Kelly pulled out of a scheduled appearance at the California Governor’s Conference for Women in Long Beach, Calif., in October, where she was set to speak on the “Grief & Resilience” panel.
Kelly said in a statement to People at the time that she was, “still deeply in the process of healing, and it’s just too soon.”
“Old Dogs” is due November 25.
Another surprise attendee at the event was Johnny Depp, who appeared in character as Captain Jack Sparrow from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series. A fourth film in the series, “On Stranger Tides,” was announced on Friday with a Summer 2011 release date.
