    ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’: A Tribute To Elton John

    According to Deadline, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” is designed to serve as the official feature on Elton John and “is comprised of unseen concert footage of him over the past 50 years, hand-written journals and present-day footage of him and his family.”

    The documentary will feature Elton John’s “Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour” and will offer an insight into his final months on the road and his final North American show at Dodger Stadium. Deadline reported that “the package includes the rights to livestream that final concert, which is shaping up to be one of the greatest send-offs in rock-and-roll history.”

    Bob Chapek, CEO of The Walt Disney Company said about “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”, “There are no superlatives left to describe Elton John and his impact on music and culture — he’s simply unrivalled. Like a good Disney story, Elton’s music has both universal appeal and the ability to connect with audiences on a deeply personal level. He 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.”
