Elton John is doing a Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat movie, so you'd better ask off work

Insisting that everyone will work really hard on it and learn all the lines, Elton John’s Rocket Pictures has set as its next production an adaptation of Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, which it plans to put on in the nation’s movie theaters and/or cafeterias soon, so you should go ahead and ask your boss to make sure you can get away from the office. As noted in The Hollywood Reporter, Andrew Webber and Tim Rice’s play—based on the biblical story of the “coat of many colors” in Genesis—is the most performed musical in history, with school children around the world putting it on “thousands of times a year.” However, Webber, Rice, and Elton John say their version will be different because it will be animated, which means their coat will not only be way cooler, with way more colors, their version will also have moving cows and sheep and stuff. Those others usually just have cardboard cows and sheep, which is dumb. As an extra incentive to audiences, when you come see it you can get real soda, not that gross orange drink they serve sometimes. You’d better not miss it, or Elton John will be really sad and hate you forever and ever.
