The Elton John biopic starring Taron Egerton blasts off to home video this August.
The story of Elton John's life, from his years as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music through his influential and enduring musical partnership with Bernie Taupin.
"His music inspires you, his life will surprise you," Rocketman is a one-of-a-kind musical celebration set to Elton John's most beloved songs. Discover how a shy, small-town boy becomes one of the most iconic figures in rock & roll. Featuring an all-star cast, this truly spectacular and utterly electrifying ride is filled with show-stopping musical performances and is "unlike anything you've ever seen" (Jake Hamilton, WFLD-TV (FOX)).
The Digital***, 4K Ultra HD, and Blu-ray releases are packed with over 75 minutes of must-see bonus content, including four extended musical sequences introduced by director Dexter Fletcher that showcase even more of the spectacular singing and dancing by Taron Egerton and the cast. The releases also include breakthrough moments not seen in theaters with 10 deleted and extended scenes with an introduction by Dexter Fletcher; sing-along tracks of 13 select songs; behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with Elton John, the cast, and filmmakers; intimate footage from recording studio sessions; plus, a Rocketman jukebox that allows viewers to skip straight to the music. Also, for a limited time while supplies last, the Combo Packs will include a collectible booklet with a special message from Elton John for fans of Rocketman.
The releases will feature a Dolby Atmos soundtrack (with Dolby Vision HDR video on the 4K release), and supplements will include:
