Alongside the poster, a featurette has been released giving a behind-the-scenes look at Egerton recording Tiny Dancer for the Rocketman soundtrack. The video includes comments from music producer Giles Martin (son of legendary producer George Martin) and director Dexter Fletcher.

“Elton said I don’t think I have heard anyone sing my songs better than Taron,” reveals Martin while Fletcher adds “Taron is actually singing in the film and he’s so convincing. His voice is incredible.”
