    I'm sure this isn't what everyone was expecting but look at the bright side this is a positive thing in regards to MJ. The estate said they had numerous projects in the works. I say sit back and relax this project might be geared towards the younger audience but I'm certain there will be something coming for everyone.

    5. Xscape promotions (including hologram performance)
    6. OTW re-release that featured NOTHING NEW...ooh excuse me....we got a piece of chalk.
    7. Relegated Dangerous 25th anniversary to just a celebration online...no special anniversary release that EVERYONE wanted.

    Why am I not surprised. This is the same people who went on record saying how great an idea having the HIStory tour on DVD, and that "the vocals on the Michael album are 100% his".

    What more BS can they do to tarnish MJ's legacy?
    Overreaction of the year.


    I think sometimes hard core fans just need to get over themselves. Not everything is targeted to them. This project is obviously aiming to target a new generation of people and introduce MJ's music to them. If it is well done then it bring in new fans.

    Hammerhead Productions and Dippe have been part of some B-list movies, hopefully Branca and McClain make good use.

    Insult? You may not like it. It may not be the kind of project you are intersted in but to call it an "insult" without actually knowing what it will be like, IS an overreaction. And who cares about the freaking tabloids?

    It's also an overreaction because he is trashing each and every post-death project when actually some of them have been good and successful projects.

    Xscape was good, Bad 25 and Off the Wall docs were good, MJ Immortal tour was huge success and so is MJ One
    This is it was a success too so not everything they have done is horrible

    And MJ LOVED animated movies and wanted to make some himself so if it's done well why not?

    What does this have to do with kids? Only kids watch animated movies?

    It is a total insult due to the fact that we have been given pretty much crappy releases since MJ passed. They make all this "hoo har" about a major announcement for an HOUR long ANIMATION? Cmon.

    To be fair, Respect, no one here should be expected to be supportive of anything just because it may bring in new fans. I think most of the criticism here, apart from Prince of Pops points, is warranted.

    I couldn't care less either way to be honest. The days of getting my hopes up about anything MJ related are long gone.

    No force of nature can break your will to self motivate.

    Xscape was one of the best albums of 2014 and one of the bestvposthumous releases ever made. I know you're talking about the promotion, but clearly, it worked due to its success.

    Purist fans are very dull, they dislike remixes even though MJ liked them and always worked with current artists without sounding tacky. You don't have to like it, and if you don't, just stop caring, there's worse problems. Besides, that kind of rant won't get anywhere.

    The releases have been a mixed bag. Some not so good, but there have been good ones too. So to pretend that everything was crap and "an insult" is indeed an overreaction.

    Whether the cartoon is any good or not remains to be seen. It's not something I am interested in myself, but I don't think there's anything necessarily wrong with creating a one-off cartoon for a Halloween special. It depends on how it's done and we don't know that yet.

    I do think they made another gaffe in promoting this as a major announcement (and then delaying it by a day). I am hardly active in the online MJ world nowadays but it takes about 5 minutes on a forum like this or Twitter to know which rumours are swirling around - in this case, mainly Thriller 3D. Their online/PR team seems to really be out of touch with big parts of the fanbase.
