“It had to be as honest as possible. The lows were very low, but the highs were very high.” Elton John on upcoming “true fantasy” Rocketman
Check out this short film about Elton’s journey from unhappy childhood to rock superstar, with comments from director Dexter Fletcher, David Furnish and the man himself.
There’s also a featurette on the costumes in the film, created by designer Julian Day.
Elton John’s stage outfits have rivalled the Met Gala for glamour, glitz and inventiveness, and gave Elton an extra creative outlet – so the upcoming fantasy biopic had a big task on its hands to ensure they did Elton justice.
Rocketman stars Taron Egerton as Elton John, Richard Madden as manager and boyfriend John Reid, Jamie Bell as Elton’s lyricist and writing partner Bernie Taupin, and Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton’s mother.
