    THIS.
    I have always said that i have extreme doubts that the Estate has anything like this. If they did we would have heard things long before now not just the odd fan recorded snippet from a convention. It is more likely these things are being held by other people , fans , friends ( Bruce Swedien etc) , Sony ( whatever) . NOT the Estate. All you got to do is look at the VHS extravaganza we got in 2012 . Xscape was horrible . Michael was mostly not even his own voice on the Michael Album, Bad 25 was ok but we should have got more , and nothing for Dangerous. The Estate do NOT have these things and MJ hated most of his family as he knew they were leeches so i very much doubt he would have trusted them with his stuff. One reason I feel the brothers are not saying too much is because they are scared it will tarnish the legacy and have an effect on their tours that they do these days , and still living off MJ's name. They are deliberately remaining neutral because they are more likely scared of the gravy train running away from them.

I'm certainly not making excuses for them - but I think that whatever their personal opinions are, will make no difference whatsoever to their ability to do the job they've been commissioned to do.
    People who think MJ molested children should not be working on an MJ project. I do not care if they do a fantastic job.

    Yeah, apparently if they are commissioned by the estate then it's okay. This is no different than an ignorant celebrity saying mj raped children on twitter. It is the exact same thing and seeing fans trying to make it different because they are associated with the estate is discouraging to say the least.

    LOL

    Have you NOT seen Bad 25 and OTW documentaries? They DO have lots of stuff. They have the Triumph Tour L.A in great quality, they DO have MSG 1988, they have the Bad era music videos on film and they do have recording sessions on film too. They do have lots of stuff.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Statement to The Associated Press from Michael Jackson’s estate on the 10th anniversary of his death.



    Ten years ago today, the world lost a gifted artist and extraordinary humanitarian. The entire global community joined in grieving during a powerful and emotional memorial service witnessed by more people than had ever viewed a live event before. Messages of condolences from Nelson Mandela and others were read as was a poem written for the occasion by the esteemed Maya Angelou. Berry Gordy Jr., founder of Motown, eulogized his protégé by saying, ”. the King of Pop is not big enough for him. I think he is simply the greatest entertainer that ever lived.” United in grief, the world wept not only at the loss of an artistic genius but at the void left by the loss of a father, son and brother.

    A decade later, Michael Jackson is still with us, his influence embedded in dance, fashion, art and music of the moment. He is more important than ever. But the true measure of Michael was his giving to others, which came in many forms. He comforted the unfortunate at hospitals, in long term care facilities and at halfway houses. He equipped Neverland Ranch with medical facilities to accommodate patients seeking refuge from their lonely hospital rooms, and thousands came. He visited troops on bases around the world serving their country. Guinness World Records acknowledged his efforts with an award for Most Charities Supported by a Pop Star.

    In a world where numbers are the measure of a man, Michael Jackson is a resounding success, whether by his 16 No. 1 singles and eight No. 1 albums in the U.S or the fact that his album “Thriller” is owned by more people on the planet than any album ever made and “Thriller” the short film is the only music video to have been inducted into the National Film Registry. And when mastery of a craft is the measure, Michael Jackson’s divine abilities remain the yardstick by which others are measured and against which today’s masters still measure themselves.

    But we best remember Michael by paying tribute to his legacy of philanthropic work and ask music fans everywhere to make a difference in their community — whether it’s planting a tree, volunteering at a shelter, cleaning up a public space or helping someone who is lost find their way.

    “I believe each person can make a difference in the life of someone in need,” he said. This is how we honor Michael.

    Why does surprise you? After all, that's what they do; Never release cool and interesting stuff.
