Synopsis / Plot
Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958-June 25, 2009) takes a final bow in this theatrical concert film featuring rehearsal footage of the late mega star as he practiced for the 100 shows in London that never came to be in this Sony release. High School Musical's Kenny Ortega handles direction duties as well as choreography chores for the HD-shot film, some of which will be presented in 3-D. Michael Jackson's This Is It will offer Jackson fans and music lovers worldwide a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the performer as he developed, created and rehearsed for his sold-out concerts that would have taken place beginning this summer in London's O2 Arena. Chronicling the months from April through June, 2009, the film is produced with the full support of the Estate of Michael Jackson and drawn from more than one hundred hours of behind-the-scenes footage, featuring Jackson rehearsing a number of his songs for the show. Audiences will be given a privileged and private look at Jackson as he has never been seen before. In raw and candid detail, "Michael Jackson's This Is It" captures the singer, dancer, filmmaker, architect, creative genius and great artist at work as he creates and perfects his final show.
2009: Nominated for Critics' Choice Awards: Best Documentary Feature
