We still may be a long, long time away from the May 31, 2019 release of the Elton John film Rocketman, but fans can finally get the first glimpse of actor Taron Egerton as the legendary singer/songwriter.

Not quite sure what I love more about this photo:  Those iconic glasses or those amazing shoes.

In addition to Egerton as John, Rocketman also stars Jamie Bell as songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as former manager/boyfriend John Reid and Bryce Dallas Howard and John’s mother, Sheila.

Rocketman is being dubbed “an epic musical fantasy” and will chronicle John’s early years in his career.
