Sony Pictures Home Entertainment offers music lovers a backstage pass to witness the King of Pop plan and create what would have been his electrifying and triumphant return to the stage with Michael Jackson's This Is It. After breaking box office records around the world, Michael Jackson's This Is It will dazzle on Blu-ray and DVD. Directed by Kenny Ortega, the Blu-ray and DVD releases will allow fans to go beyond the theatrical experience of the film with the two documentaries Staging The Return: Beyond The Show and Staging The Return: The Adventure Begins, in which Michael Jackson is shown developing, creating and rehearsing for his sold-out This Is It tour. Also available are a series of illuminating featurettes, including The Gloved One, a costume themed featurette; Memories of Michael, in which cast and crew pay moving tribute to the legacy of Michael Jackson; Auditions: Searching for the World's Best Dancers, spotlighting the search for the show's incredibly talented backup dancers; and the film's Theatrical Trailer.
Also included exclusively on the European release is the never-before seen additional featurette The Unfinished Rehearsals in which Kenny Ortega and Production Designer Michael Cotten reveal two show-stopping concepts for This Is It which never made it to the big screen.
Additional features exclusive to the Blu-ray include the complete and uncut versions of Smooth Criminal and Thriller, two all-new vignettes seen briefly in the film, along with a special Making-of Smooth Criminal featurette. In Smooth Criminal, sit back and marvel as Michael Jackson seamlessly shares the screen with some of the greatest movie stars of all-time in a new black and white vignette that celebrates Michael's love of Old Hollywood. Then, in the all-new Thriller vignette, watch in awe as Michael brings one of his most popular songs to a monstrous second life in a thrilling new video featuring a whole new cast of zombies, ghosts and ghouls igniting awareness with all-new and signature Jackson dance moves.
Exclusive to the Blu-ray edition of Michael Jackson's This Is It are even more must-have bonus features Jackson fans will love, including the BD-Live™ enabled movieIQ, which lets viewers add their favourite songs from the film to an emailable This is It playlist. With movieIQ, viewers can also access live trivia information about the movie's cast, crew, music and production ? all while watching the movie!
