Fans of music legend Elton John are getting even more excited about the upcoming biopic after a new trailer was released.

'Rocketman' will show Elton's journey from small beginnings to worldwide music legend.

Taren Egerton will take on the leading role and apparently Elton himself is deeply impressed by him!

"Elton said, 'I don't think I have heard anyone sing my songs better than Taron'," the film's music producer Giles Martin said.

"And the great thing about Elton is he wants Taron's interpretations of his songs."

He's already being compared to Rami Malek in Bohemian Rhapsody.

"Elton's songs are the defining moments in people's lives," adds Egerton. "It's been the greatest joy of my professional life, making this film."

The movie is set to open in New Zealand cinemas on May 30.
