John Travolta vowed to always remember his wife Kelly Preston's "love and life" following her tragic death last year.

And he is doing exactly that.

The beloved Grease star took to Instagram over the weekend to share a sweet post in memory of his late wife in honour of her final film role premiere.

Alongside the trailer for Off The Rails, the 67-year-old actor wrote: "Off The Rails is Kelly's last film.

"She was very proud of it and of all of the wonderful talent that she got to work with in it."

Travolta's 21-year-old daughter, Ella Travolta, also shared an emotional tribute to her late mother.

Taking to the social media platform, the aspiring actress wrote: "I am very proud of my mother's last film and I know she was too.

"She very much enjoyed the time she had making this wonderful picture and all of the lovely people she got to work with."

Preston passed away in July 2020 after privately battling breast cancer for two years prior.

Travolta wrote an emotional post on Instagram confirming that his wife of 28 years had died.

"It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many."

As well as John, Kelly is survived by Ella and her 10-year-old son Benjamin.

The couple's 16-year-old son Jett tragically died in January 2009 after suffering a seizure.
