Elton John Moments In Film

Enjoy some nostalgic Elton John moments in films ahead of the release of Rocketman.

As we eagerly wait for the release of Rocketman, let’s look back at some memorable Elton John moments in film.

Rocketman, the exciting biography of Elton John’s breakthrough years, starring Taron Egerton, comes out 24 May in cinemas!

The Lion King

The Lion King’s tearjerking love scene between Simba and Nala accompanied by Elton John’s “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” is an all time classic. This is without a doubt the most romantic Disney scene ever made.

Almost Famous

Tiny Dancer” is featured in this nostalgic iconic scene of Almost Famous. The power of this sing-along boosts the characters’ state of mind and unites them as a team again.

27 Dresses

In this popular early 2000s rom-com 27 Dresses, the song “Bennie and the Jets” makes a fun bar scene appearance.

Moulin Rouge!

Ewan McGregor serenades Nicole Kidman with “Your Song” in Moulin Rouge. Lucky gal.


And now, for something completely different, from Sasha Baron Cohen’s infamous film Brüno, enjoy Chris Martin, Slash, Sting, Bono, Snoop Dogg and our beloved Elton John on the piano (sitting on an unusual piano stool), all jamming out to this absurd end of film song “Dove of Peace”.
