Rocketman launches on Blu-ray, DVD

Fans of the Elton John musical fantasy can bring home Rocketman today on both Blu-ray and DVD with a massive amount of bonus content.

For the lucky fans, there are limited quantities of the combo pack that will include a collectible booklet with a message from Sir Elton John.  As I wrote earlier this year for the theatrical release, the Oscar is going to be Taron Edgerton’s to lose.

Synopsis

Rocketman is an epic musical fantasy about the incredible human story of Elton John’s breakthrough years. The film follows the fantastical journey of transformation from shy piano prodigy Reginald Dwight into international superstar Elton John. This inspirational story – set to Elton John’s most beloved songs and performed by star Taron Egerton – tells the universally relatable story of how a small-town boy became one of the most iconic figures in pop culture. Rocketman also stars Jamie Bell as Elton’s longtime lyricist and writing partner Bernie Taupin, Richard Madden as Elton’s first manager John Reid, and Bryce Dallas Howard as Elton’s mother Sheila Farebrother.
