This Web site recently revealed that there are plans to produce an Elton John With Piano Gnome from the Gnomeo & Juliet movie in 2017.
Originally set for the holiday season in 2015, and approved by the rocker himself, there was a surprise shift as Rocket Pictures, who had the license to produce the sequel, apparently sold/transferred the license to Paramount Pictures. During that time, all communications went silent and the item, featuring glitter and rhinestones, was put on hold.
Now Lior Noy, owner of the company, Garden Fun, tells Eltonjohnworld.com:
”In the last week, Paramount has given us the blessing to produce the figure. We’re just waiting for some licensing paperwork to get completed and worked out so it can go into production. The aim is to have it by the fourth quarter of 2017 (if not before).
”Once we confrm it is scheduled and production has begun, we can start taking preorders, but not until then.”
