 Rocketman - Taron Egerton

ROCKETMAN hits cinemas in May, but above is the first behind the scenes look at Taron Egerton recording ‘Tiny Dancer’ for the soundtrack of ROCKETMAN.

The featurette also includes comments from Music Producer, Giles Martin, (son of legendary producer George Martin) and Director, Dexter Fletcher.

“Elton said I don’t think I have heard anyone sing my songs better than Taron.” Giles Martin, Music Producer. “Taron is actually singing in the film and he’s so convincing.  His voice is incredible.” Dexter Fletcher, Director.

ROCKETMAN is an epic musical fantasy about the incredible human story of Elton John’s breakthrough years. The film follows the fantastical journey of  transformation from shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight into international superstar Elton John. This inspirational story – set to Elton John’s most beloved songs and performed by star Taron Egerton – tells the universally relatable story of how a small-town boy became one of the most iconic figures in pop culture.

ROCKETMAN also stars Jamie Bell as Elton’s longtime lyricist and writing partner Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as Elton’s first manager, John Reid, and Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton’s mother Sheila Farebrother.

ROCTETMAN is directed by Dexter Fletcher.
