    It took Dan Reed who is a professional with a multi million company behind him, what, 2-3 years to do Leaving Neverland with massive financial backing & planning. Do you expect Taj Jackson to counter that by himself without financing, planning or no preparation whatsoever. Dan Reed probably spent like 4 years planning this in total.

    And dont forget Taj went out on media tour when LN aired, so its not like he was sitting on his hands doing nothing.

    Of course it would have been optimal to counter LN by releasing a counter-film immediately, but remember everyone was blindsided by LN and did not even know the content etc. Keep in mind that it took fans 3-4 months to pick LN apart, so it would not have been feasible to release anything quickly.

    And now, my argument is that the LN hysteria has died down already. nobody has given a darn the last 4 months, so right now it makes all the sense in the world to perfect the release as much as possible. If it comes out now or in 1 year will make no difference in grand scheme of things.

    I dont know how you can expect miracles from a one man show that Taj is without any prior experience about making full time movies or series. The guy has basicly been fighting a complete upphill battle ALONE in the name of Michael. He is not perfect, he is not a genius but he is doing what he can do the best of his ability!

    Tajs project is not going to be a "Lies of leaving neverland" spectactle and only focused on LN and Robson/Safechuck, its going to be about Michaels life and everything he went through including the allegations - to everything into context.

    With the corona virus, how will this turn out, when will it be released, I have no idea, nobody probably knows. What I do know is that I am going to whatever I can do to help and support Taj! And certainly not directing negativity towards the only single soul on the fekking planet doing anything whatsoever to help out in this neverending shitstorm!!!!!
    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS POST!! Taj has been working his a$$ off since that bulls@#$ hit the fan. He has been extremely vocal in defending Michael since day one. In case some of you don’t know there are those who don’t want the truth told. This includes the lying pieces of @#$ making the false allegations, the low life director, and the other conspirators involved. I can’t believe anyone who would have even a thought of negativity against Taj and the tremendous pressure he is facing.Thank God he is taking his time and trying to get it right. I WILL BE HERE FOR HIM 100% whenever he finishes his project and will support it with every fiber of my being.

    In my opinion it does seems alittle bit too late. we are almost to the summer. i think it should still be made. it will come in handy in the future and put all of this to rest.

    The Robson and Safechuck court cases are still ongoing, and media coverage will ramp up each time they or their legal firm appear in court / make statements to the press or when the cases go into a new phase eg trial or appeal. We still have seemingly at least 2 years to reach even the end of the main cases, let alone any appeals. (Not forgetting that the Estate vs HBO case is also still ongoing and will generate its own publicity).

    There are already mini-rebuttal docs like 'Lies of leaving Neverland' and 'Square One' which are widely available. The 'tide of opinion' against MJ started to turn after Dave Chapelle's comments, and more people are starting to see that LN was one-sided, and also to see that accusers are not always the *victims* they claim to be. Taj wants to create a doc series which will set the allegations in context against Michael's life, so that viewers will see MJ 's real story from the people who knew him well. More of these people are likely to come forward now, because of the growing changes in public opinion.

    The real sadness for me is that a doc. like this wasn't made in 2009-10 when so many more people who were close to MJ were alive, eg Elizabeth Taylor, Frank DeLio etc (I understood he was writing a book when he sadly died- I don't know if his family are still working on it). But we are where we are, and I'm sure Taj will do an excellent job.

    On a practical note, Taj wants to include 'face-to face' interviews (not skype-type interviews) and it is right that he waits until he can 'be in the same room' as the people he is interviewing.

    Well, Michaels humanitarian work will be a part of the series/film so its not forgotten.

    Realisticly, which neutrals would watch a film/series about Michael Jacksons humanitarian work only? Think about it. Leaving Neverland have struck and most non-fans with no vested interest are convinced Michael Jackson was a serial child molester. Do you think many of them will care to watch a humanitarian documentary mainly about Michael helpong children about a person they see as a child predator? I dont think many would watch that.

    By presenting Michaels whole life, including the allegations and controversies, its actually possible that neutrals will turn in because they are curious about how the man they perceive as a monster will be portrayed and what the other side of the molestation accusations are etc. Better to bake in the humanitarian work in context of a big picture of Michaels life, than dedicating the whole project to the humanitarian side. Its about possibly swaying the opinion of some people!

    Also, I dont agree with giving the allegations more attention by bringing them up again. Dan Reed might be recording Leaving Neverland 2.0. Finaldi will continue his regular slander in the press and as the court cases move forward and if there is a trial, it will all come back again. Whatever Reed does with the footage he is going to record at the court cases, it will cause a media stir, no doubt about. Maybe not as bad as LN, buy enough to create a new pile of dogcrap for us all to endure.

    If done right, Tajs project could help in combating this!

    :-) I should have written non-fans. I edited my post to non-fans with no vested interest. I mean, the people that do not care but just have gotten the impression he is guilty because of the media, Leaving Neverland etc. These are the people that I think could be swayed or at least turned to dont know instead of guilty if we can get some of them to watch Tajs film/series.

    Oh. OK, that makes sense.

    That’s pretty much what happened here in Germany when the Akte Spezial documentary aired in January.

    Have a little faith friends. He will get it done, it doesn’t matter how long it take to complete as long as it’s done right! People are warming to MJ again just because time has past since the release of LN. I honesty think if they just dropped a.single out of nowhere the world would fall for the music again. Come on this is Michael Jackson his legacy may have taken a hit but it is written in stone and that will never change.

    Also, VP Joe Biden is going through something which is showing people who accusers lie. I still say I think more people this LN is BS (those who cared to watch it, many people did not seem to care to watch that trash) than who believed it.

    I bet around 90% watching were MJ fans preparing for war.

    The main things he talked about were how the response to his project has become better now that people aren’t that afraid to talk about MJ anymore, and how that has changed over the last few months, and how this change hopefully helps him to get the series out on Netflix.

    In some of his upcoming live streams he’s also planning to walk us through a couple of movies that they used to watch with MJ, that seemed to be important to him. So there will be a couple of watch parties with Taj, including Kick The Can.

    Those were the main takeaways for me.
