    I have heard some crazy stuff too like the aliens took him back to their planet and he has a clone on earth now. Also that he died years ago and we have been watching a clone for years. I know these are crazy stories and I obviously don't believe them but some stuff isn't so far fetched and so I have some doubts. I'm glad you're with me on this one. Newbies rule lol

    Yes it was him...

    There would be times when a dancer or someone would serve as a stand-in for technical rehearsals (for lighting/having the dancers act off of a person/etc), but those weren't in the movie...

    All those rumours that you just mentioned are ridiculous and sorry, but if anyone seriously questions if it was really Michael in This is It because of any of the above then I simply have no words.

    People like to speculate, but refuse to accept simple truths because apparently the truth is boring.

    Of course they are ridiculous which illustrates my point. Nothing is out of bounds when it comes to Michael it seems.

    I wonder if they are planning to release more rehearsal footage of different songs or different dates of rehearsals

    They did say they was hours of footage not used so I really hope they do. Wasn't there a mention of there being a second one?

    There should be rehearsal footage of songs that are not that "popular" which have probably gained some momentum since his death/the TII movie... they could now show those. I would love to see him perform Stranger in Moscow, You Rock My World, Dangerous, and Dirty Diana.

    I believe there are plans for an anniversary edition (10th) in 2019 maybe?

    Since there was also a lot of footage left out from the last two rehearsals I wonder whether we will shall see more of this in the next edition?

    It just breaks my heart. How can he be gone? Let alone 10 years gone nearly.
