Taron Egerton Sings Elton John’s ‘Tiny Dancer’ in New ‘Rocketman’ Teaser (Video)

Biopic from director Dexter Fletcher arrives May 31

The new trailer for Elton John biopic “Rocketman” shows that Taron Egerton can really sing and can belt out his own version of John’s songs in the film.

In this latest teaser, which splices together scenes from the movies with behind-the-scenes footage of Egerton in the studio and cast and crew interviews, there’s a live, unfiltered look at Egerton recording the John classic “Tiny Dancer.” And he’s got at least one admirer.

“Elton said, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone sing my songs better than Taron,” music producer Giles Martin says in the video. “The great thing about Elton is, he wants Taron’s interpretations of his songs.”

“Taron really does sing in the film,” director Dexter Fletcher says. “He’s so convincing, and his voice is incredible.”

Egerton stars in “Rocketman,” which is described as a musical fantasy of the story of Elton John, and an uncensored one at that. Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard and Jamie Bell also co-star.
