'Rocketman' Star Taron Egerton Sings An Elton John Classic In New Featurette

Taron Egerton as Elton John in the upcoming film Rocketman

Taron Egerton plays Elton John in Rocketman behind the scenes teaser.

"The thing about playing someone so beloved, all we can do is give a heartfelt interpretation of his life and his music", Egerton says in the look at the film.

Interview: This video not only features new footage from the biopic, but also includes interview segments with Egerton and director Dexter Fletcher.

The film's music producer, Giles Martin, said "Elton said I don't think I have heard anyone sing my songs better than Taron".

"Elton's songs have defined moments in people's lives", says Egerton, whose credits include "The Smoke" and "The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance". You can be anyone you want, Elton John'.

The biopic, which started filming in late June, also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Jamie Bell and Richard Madden, all of whom are seen in the new featurette.

The British actor previously sang his I'm Still Standing anthem for children's film Sing, but asked by Moyles if the 2016 animated movie was what landed him the role as Elton John, he revealed: "The role actually pre-dates that".

A new behind-the-scenes featuette for Rocketman zeroes in on this fact, as it allows us to watch and hear Taron Egerton's rendition of "Tiny Dancer". Rocketman opens in theaters on May 31st.
