The first trailer for Dexter Fletcher’s Elton John biopic “Rocketman” debuted last week, and the movie is a homage to the music legend’s life story.
Taron Egerton plays John — who changed his name from Reginald Dwight — and in the trailer clip’s first few moments, John slowly composes “Your Song” at the piano as his mother watches (a song that went on to become one of the singer’s biggest hits.)
The trailer also captures the singer taking the stage at his epic Dodger Stadium concert in 1975. Egerton actually sings all the classic tracks in the film.
Rocketman arrives in theater on May 31.
