Music legend Elton John has done his fair share of movie appearances, and now he’s set to be portrayed in the forthcoming biographical musical, Rocketman.

Playing the iconic musician is Welsh actor Taron Egerton, who made his mark in 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, and its 2017 sequel, and who is also set to appear in the bombastic new Robin Hood movie.

The first image from Rocketman has just been released, which captures John in the midst of his career breakthrough. 

Speaking to Collider earlier this year, Egerton revealed it won’t your regular biographical film.

“Everyone thinks it’s a bio-pic. It isn’t. It’s a fantasy musical so it’s actually his songs used to express important beats in his life at emotional moments. He’s not the only character that sings. It’s going to be fun,” he said.

Egerton is also a singer, but has been taking lessons to at least help him “create some semblance of a performance that is at least reminiscent of him.”

Also set to appear in the film is Fantastic Four’s Jamie Bell, Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden, Gemma Jones from Bridget Jones’s Diary, and Black Mirror’s Bryce Dallas Howard.

Rocketman is set to hit cinemas in May 2019.
