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.
Written by Lee Hall, the film was produced by Matthew Vaughn, David Furnish, Adam Bohling, and David Reid. The executive producers are Elton John, Steve Hamilton Shaw, Michael Gracey, Claudia Schiffer, and Brian Oliver.
Elton John appeared alongside Taron Egerton in Kingsman: The Golden Circle. Egerton recently starred in Robin Hood.
