Michael Jackson:This Is It is a 2009 film showing Michael Jackson’s rehearsals for a concert series of the same name. The footage was filmed at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. It is set for worldwide theatrical release on October 28, 2009 with a limited two-week run. Tickets go on sale a month early, on September 27, 2009 to satisfy a high anticipated demand.

On August 10, 2009, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff approved a deal between Michael Jackson’s estate, concert promoter AEG Live and Sony Pictures. This allows Sony Pictures to edit hundreds of hours of rehearsal footage, mostly shot at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Sony paid $60 million for the film rights.

The film will feature a retrospective of Jackson’s career, behind-the-scenes segments, interviews with former friends of the popstar and 3-D sequences.[6] The film project is underway with the full support of The Estate of Michael Jackson and its executors. A live album will accompany the film, and will feature at least one new song.

Kenny Ortega’s statement

The world will see what our team was so fortunate to experience, which was the full commitment, passion and creativity that Michael put into this project. He was the architect of This Is It, and we were his builders. The footage that was captured from the early stages of the production to our technical rehearsals at the STAPLES Center in L.A. will show Michael as he truly was, creatively involved with every aspect of the production, from the staging and choreography, to the music, lighting, production design and conception of the original short films and video backdrops. It will also show Michael as one of the greatest entertainers in the world and one of the industry’s most creative minds. This Is It was Michael’s last theatrical work and although it was still a work in progress, I think the footage will show that the process was something that Michael deeply enjoyed and that it was clear that he was on his way to another theatrical triumph.
