    Default Any news on the This is it project?

    Since 2019 will be the 10th anniversary of This is it I was wondering whether anyone has any news on the project and what are your thoughts on a potential re-release? I'm guessing any news will be released closer to the time, e.g over next summer/fall.

    I don't think there's really anything entirely unseen they could release except the dangerous rehearsal.

    There plenty of footage to share.. even if they are afraid the performance quality isnt great. There are those meetings and behind the scene footage that we got glimpses of that they could show more of.. or even sections of performances.

    It doesnt habe to be just like this is it but more a documentary that people speak about it and show mini clips kind of like the special features did



    I just dont know if theyll ever actually do it

    I personally don’t think there is any unseen performances of songs we didn’t get to see. They would have put these on the DVD/Blu Ray bonus disc if it did exist.

    I believe there is about 7 performances that haven't been seen yet: Stranger in Moscow, Rock With You, Dangerous, Dirty Diana, Will You Be There, Heal The World/We Are The World. Also there are the meetings and unedited/extended performances the could reuse later.

    If those do exist, why weren't they included in the film? I doubt they were fully rehearsed if rehearsed at all.

    Those songs were indeed rehearsed with MJ. in the AEG trial they withheld showing footage because they had plans to release it later, I'm paraphrasing btw.

    Did they specifically say that? I only saw that they said Sony didn't want to provide footage because it had a high value to them.

    The last videos of Michael Jackson were so top secret, they were transported in an unmarked truck, accompanied by armed guards in the dead of the night ... this according to new docs filed in the Conrad Murray manslaughter case.


    You ask what Conrad Murray has to do with MJ videos? Well, Dr. Murray wants to see ALL of the rehearsal videos shot for the doomed "This is It" tour. Murray's lawyers believe it could show Michael was in such a frail condition ... there were many reasons for his death other than Propofol.

    Murray's lawyers subpoenaed the tapes, but now Sony Pictures -- which has possession of the videos -- is objecting for several reasons. Sony claims there are more than 20 boxes of videos and it would cost $200,000 to log and reproduce all of them.

    But in the docs, Sony describes how top secret the videos were to the studio. Sony lawyers say, "When they were transported to the Sony lot in Culver City, the transport in an unmarked truck was accompanied by armed guards in the dead of the night."

    When the tapes were in an editing bay, security guards were posted outside the door and no Internet access was allowed in the room.

    And a Sony honcho also submitted a declaration which says the videos "have a high monetary value inherent in their potential for future uses. Those uses include one or more 'anniversary editions.'"

    So yeah what I just said haha, I was just wondering if there was anything more detailed in the courts that proved those songs were rehearsed. Thanks for the link, though!

    I hope if there is a new release that it is kept real to the time and the vocals are kept true, if possible.
