    He was music royalty — but he didn't want to be.

    The latest trailer for the Michael Jackson biopic Searching For Neverland portrays the singer trying to escape the limelight in his final years.

    The new teaser for the Lifetime movie opens with the late singer's bodyguards Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard (Chad L. Coleman & Sam Adegoke) - who co-wrote the book on which the series is based - being questioned by investigators.

    They quiz them about Dr Conrad Murray, the physician who was ultimately charged with involuntary manslaughter after administering a fatal dose of Propofol.

    'May I remind you you are under oath: did Dr Conrad Murray kill Michael Jackson?' the investigator asks.

    'Like I told you, I wasn't there that night,' one replies.

    'But you were there the two years leading up to that night,' the investigator fires back.

    The superstar can be seen cosying up to his children - and others - as they watch movies, blew out birthday candles and chased a puppy together.

    'He doesn't want to be the King of Pop,' one of the bodyguards muses to the other. 'He just wants to be Mike... a normal American dad.'
    Jackson - played by longtime impersonator Navi - can be seen visibly distressed as he is surrounded by photographers.

    'Raising these kids alone is the hardest thing I've ever had to do,' he says

    'There are good people in the world, and there are bad people,' he tells one of the children. 'I will always protect you.'

    Things get heated as the bodyguards push back against the line of questioning, declaring they were the only two people who had the hitmaker's back.

    'We loved that man!' Beard roars. 'We were the only too people actually looking out for him!'

    Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland premieres on May 29 on Lifetime.

    ^ That's what I've been sayin'.. Man In The Mirror was horrific! and it's all over youtube and I've seen it sold at Walmarts.. F that!

    I would still rather have a poorly put together lifetime movie come up when people type in "Michael Jackson biopic" than that highly offensive movie 'Man In The Mirror'

    Depending on who one asks, this movie can be deemed as just as if not more offensive than the Man In The Mirror due to the person portraying Michael in this new movie is of mexican/latino descent when Michael was a black man

    It has reached the point any portrayal of Michael from here on out will be deemed as offensive where things would be totally different if things should have evolved the way it should

    Man this looks really bad. I hope nobody watches this. I felt embarrassed watching the trailer. Navi looks redictulous I'm sure the acting is just as bad. No just No.

    I mean... we will see the content, it doesn't seem like many read the book but if there was something horribly offensive within it - I would assume we would have talked about it and tore it into pieces.. And something (even if a little) has to be said that suzanne de passe is part of the project and Navi dedicates much of his life dedicated to Michael..

    If I were a betting man (which I'm not really) I'd say this will come out better than man in the mirror.. I know for a fact that the research they did was weak and they had no idea what Michael was like.. Flex playing Michael was basically an SNL skit.

    Statement from the Michael Jackson Estate:

    "To clear up any confusion or misperceptions about unsanctioned Michael Jackson projects currently in the news -- including a Lifetime television movie and an animated film script recently purchased by Netflix -- the Estate of Michael Jackson does not license or permit the use of any rights it owns, including to Michael’s music, images, video and films, for use in unauthorized works seeking to exploit Michael's legacy. The Estate itself has numerous projects in development, all of which respect, honor and celebrate Michael’s life and legacy along with his extraordinary artistry that touched fans throughout the world. When the executors are ready to announce them, they will. As Michael said countless times about his own work, the quality goes in before the name goes on."

    I've been there yesterday. I couldn't care less about the movie, I went there to talk with Suzanne de Passe.
    Having no expectations whatsoever, I was very pleasantly surprised. The film is very well done, and definitely the best we have on Michael in this genre.

    It does a great job humanizing him. A LOT of good humor, it doesn't scream low-budget at all like most TV movies tend to do... Very accurate portrayal of a number of situations we have footage of or read about in detail. I think we have Navi's obsessive fandom to thank for that.

    I think he looks good in the movie and the portrayal is tactful. His accent falls away here and there, but overall he sounds pretty close to Michael in This Is It. A slight lisp included.

    I'm glad this was made and IMO it will benefit the public perception of Michael.
