    The animated show is planting the seed for future generations.. If the estate only released things ONLY to satisfy the fan base that's been around.. Well, we're not always going to be around. They have the thought of continuous growth of a business.. the hunt for new fans is a huge part of the business. new fans buy more.. They have more to buy!

    If the animated show/movie whatever is not your thing, well - lets see what is to come outside of that. no need to hate on it so much!! I mean it's not hurting anyone, only a little fun for some fans and to get music out to youngsters at the same time..

    IM Global Lands International Rights to ‘Michael Jackson’s Halloween’




    Stewart Clarke

    International Correspondent@varietystewart​ ​ ​ ​

    Share This Article ​ ​ Talk ​

    July 13, 2017 | 08:00AM PT IM Global​ will take “Michael Jackson​’s Halloween” out internationally after landing distribution rights to the animated special, which will air on CBS​ in the U.S.

    Produced by Optimum, the Michael Jackson company now owned by his estate, the special will feature an animated version of the late singer and performer in its finale and have Jackson songs throughout.

    Voice talent on the special includes Christine Baranski (“The Good Fight”), Kiersey Clemons (“Justice League”), and Alan Cumming (“The Good Wife”). The special, which bows on CBS this fall, follows two millennials, Vincent and Victoria, who find themselves on a mysterious Halloween journey inside a hotel on 777 Jackson Street.




    John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of The Estate of Michael Jackson, serve as executive producers on the special. The “Halloween” deal is Optimum’s latest with IM Global, which also distributed “Michael Jackson’s Journey From Motown to Off the Wall,” the Spike Lee documentary about the singer.

    “I am thrilled and truly thankful for the opportunity to partner with the Estate of Michael Jackson on the international distribution of ‘Michael Jackson’s Halloween,’” said IM Global Television’s distribution boss Eli Shibley. “This is a universally relatable story accompanied by a magically re-imagined Michael Jackson song list.”

    I just had a look into the future....

    The animated Halloween special airs - it's great, BUT - then all of a sudden Monster starts....

    MJJC goes cracy... fans are furious. Ohh the hate towards the Estate will be massive.

    MJ Estate - IF you do read this... PLEASE do NOT include any Cascio songs...

    LOL I hope they wouldn't do that.

    I notice the press release mentioned reimagined songs. I guess they'll be cut and the production updated in some way. They're not going to fit many in a 60 minute show!
    But if they stick only with the Halloween theme they only need to squeeze in thriller, ghosts, is it scary, threatened (and exclude monster). That's doable.

    What does it have to do with anything? Don't you know who that "someone" is?

    I think the fact they are already mentioning MJ music (making it clear not just one song) the big driving force of this is simply to get MJ music heard by a young audience.. There's no reason to be mad at that! Sneaking an MJ song in a kid movie (angry birds or whatever other movie) does not bring as much attention to his music as a full special surrounding his music..

    We get excited when films use MJ's music or likeness (when positive), but when the same thing is done with an announcement we get mad!?! They should not have did a pre-announcement, letting us know that they were going to announce something.. WE built it up and let ourselves down.

    Go figure.

    Some people love to keep beating a dead horse.

    I understand the estate is trying to create and encourage new fans, just don't think it will appeal to many unless it streams online and is uploaded to streaming services like Netflix etc. That way it will be seen by a wider audience.
    Talking to other people at work, they seem like it always comes back to Thriller, whenever MJ is mentioned and I deffo think there's more to MJ than that.
    It's time for the estate to concentrate on maybe other things like a Touring Michael Jackson musical like other artists and bands have done in recent years.

    Maybe this project just isnt my thing, seems like an easy thing to create and slap out.

    ^ Well who knows where it will go after it airs on TV.. TV is still a better way to debut new things like this.. That way commercials will advertise it, bringing in more viewers.. The special obviously does not have a fan base to get people watching already that would get people interested. Maybe Netflix will get it afterwards!
