Gnomeo, oh Gnomeo…
The classic story of “Romeo and Juliet” is back on the big screen TODAY and we’re stoked to see it! With new and old songs by Elton John and the voice talents of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt, we actually know you’ll love it.
JJJ recently sat down with Elton to chat about the flick and found out some little known facts. Did you know this film was 11 years in the making?
Elton shared, “It’s been on and off…Dick Cook finally said yes and said ‘let’s do it.’ They had tried to Americanize it but it really didn’t work [with the garden gnomes] and it had to be British. The whole appeal of it…it’s actually set in Stratford Upon Avon and everything is British. I love that.”
Psst, Elton actually becomes a gnome in the flick! “I actually didn’t know that was going to happen and when I did see that, I laughed…and laughed and laughed,” he shared.
Gnomeo and Juliet hits theaters TODAY!!! 20+ stills inside…
