Michael Jackson’s THIS IS IT is a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the performer as he developed, created and rehearsed for his sold-out concerts at London’s O2 Arena. Chronicling the months from April through June 2009, this film was 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. 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 planned final London shows.

  • MJ ‘s Genius Enshrined.

    By Pearlsnaredrummet77
    Regardless what you think about the MJ contraversies, there is no doubt that he was history’s greatest pop star. He performed for five decades, and this film shows his preparation for what would have been a final tour. So while this is not an all out performance, seeing MJ in rehearsal in some ways is more impressive. He knew what he wanted his show to be, and worked with his fellow performers with kindness. There are just enough performance moments to keep you entranced, but this is an MJ on 80% because he is rehearsing and trying to save his voice. But an MJ on 80% is better than just about any other performer that ever lived.

    I saw this the very day it came out on its earliest available showing possible, and OMG... it's like, oh thank God, it was all just a bad dream, & there's my bro Michael alive and well and still at it... I cried at the end wishing it never had to end. Love you forever, Michael! ;D

    So sad that the world never got to see the genius of this last show by Michael Jackson.
  • A once in a generation talent

    Michael was a perfectionist and he never would have allowed this behind the scenes documentary of his rehearsal process to be released. But oh are we the better for that happening. This Is It is a fascinating look behind the scenes into how a Michael Jackson concert was sculpted. Michael’s incredible talent is on display throughout the film. If we didn’t know it before we certainly know after watching This Is It, Michael Jackson was a true artist, a musical genius, a perfectionist, and at the same time so vulnerable and so human. We are all blessed to have been alive during his most productive years. Whatever you think about Michael Jackson as a person, there’s no denying he was a once-in-a-generation talent. Miss you MJ. You played such a huge role in my life in the 80s. Thriller changed everything for me. It expanded my understanding of what music could be. And the music video, and the making of the music video, expanded my understanding of filmmaking. Rest in peace. You will be remembered for your musical genius, up there with the greatest of all time, like Elvis and the Beatles; and as a man with an unparalleled understanding of music... the late 20th century’s Mozart.
