Reginald Dwight is a shy boy from a small British town with a huge talent for the piano. In his struggle to achieve his dream of being a musician, little by little he becomes a rebellious young man who begins to put aside classical music and get into rock and roll. With the help of his usual composer, Bernie Taupin, and his first manager, John Reid, Reginald will experience a spectacular metamorphosis that will make him Elton John, one of the greatest pop icons of all time. Director in the shadow of Bohemian Rhapsody after the controversial dismissal of Bryan Singer, Dexter Fletcher (Eddie the Eagle) aspires to repeat the success of that with Rocketman, another musical biopic where he enters the turbulent years that led to a young British named Reginald Dwight to become the great pop rock star Elton John. Producer of the film, John himself assures that that era, extraordinary and surreal, deserved a film to match. In this way, the excesses, addictions and extravagances that have always surrounded the singer are reflected in the big screen without censorship and with an ironic sense of humor and festive spirit that is spread by the most iconic songs of the British genius, real protagonists of the film . Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Golden Circle) steps into the impossible platforms of Elton John in this surprising and unpredictable combination of musical; drama about love, family or friendship; and libertine parties. He is joined in the cast by Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom), Richard Madden (Cinderella) and Jamie Bell (Film stars do not die in Liverpool), who play those crucial people in this gold and glitter tour from his childhood in the small town of Pinner to the top of the record industry.
