    Default Making Michael Jackson's Thriller VHS/DVD

    I have always found it very strange that something as big as The Making of Michael Jackson's Thriller has never gotten an official DVD release. Why didn't Michael Jackson take care of that? The VHS tape has been out of print for over 30 years now. Who's job is it now to get Thriller on DVD? The Michael Jackson Estate? SONY? Optimum Productions? Jerry Kramer? Who's job would it be to make sure Jerry Kramer, John Landis and Ola Ray get paid for it? Was that Michael Jackson's job when he was alive? I remember the VHS tape had both, the music video and the Making of Thriller on it. They should release it on DVD as is, with no changes. I tweeted to Michael Jackson about it and got no response. I guess the estate takes care of his twitter page.

    Is this real? from the official estate and people who did and work with Thriller?

    No, I think they are counterfeit. I mentioned it above. Check the link. If they were real official releases we would have heard about it and they would be available everywhere.

    I'm super late to this thread, but it is odd that this has never been officially released on DVD. I have an old VHS of it, like I'm guessing a lot of people here do, but I haven't owned a VCR in years. I remember seeing it on TV as part of a tribute after Michael died, so I doubt the estate lost the rights to it or something like that.

    Hmm... I wonder if there's any chance of a DVD release for Thriller's 40th anniversary? I know that's still a few years away, but it's not totally outside the realm of possibility.

    People still use DVDs but 40th anniversary? by then people propbably won't be even using DVDs anymore. it's already happening as we speak. more people are downloading and streaming nowadays.

    They better release the Thriller music video and the Making of on Blu ray with the Victory tour as a box set. I won't support another anniversary release with the same album we all already have and a shittier documentary. Bad 25 was amazing (and it could have been WAY better with a real HQ Bad tour show), do something like that for Thriller.

    The Making of Thriller was also released on Laser Disc originally! The next best thing to DVD!
