Or, if you’re just ready to be entertained with good ol’ Disney magic, you can check out our list of everything coming out on the platform this month. BUT! Before you turn on your TV, you don’t want to miss this announcement. An Elton John documentary coming to Disney+!

YES! It’s true! The new documentary is set to be called Goodbye Yellow Brick Road: The Final Elton John Performances And The Years That Made His Legend” (quite the mouthful, but we don’t mind!) and will feature unseen rehearsal and concert footage, exclusive personal archives, and interviews. The film will be directed by Academy Award Nominee R.J. Cutler and Filmmaker David Furnish, who is a long-time friend of Elton John.


The film will first make its way through the film festival circuit, then through a limited theatrical release before being available to the public on Disney+. According to Disney, the documentary will capture Elton John’s final months of touring, finishing with his last North American concert in Dodger Stadium. The film will also look back at the first 5 years of his career, which skyrocketed him to becoming a global phenomenon.

Bob Chapek, CEO of the Walt Disney Company, said that Elton John “has been part of the Disney family since 1994 when he helped make ‘The Lion King’ an instant classic, and we could not be more excited to collaborate with him on this new documentary.” Joining the production team are Trevor Smith as a producer, and John Battsek, Jane Cha Cutler, and Elise Pearlstein as executive producers.
