    Default Missing scene in MOONWALKER (Blu-Ray)

    Hi...
    I just checked the blu-ray version of Moonwalker and i noticed for the first time that there is a scene missing.

    At the end when they are with Franky Lideo... he is going to give a syringe to Katy and Michael says "Do it and you're dead".

    That is missing.
    Why?

    Is there any HD version including this scene?

    EDIT:

    I cut it back to the movie.

    1. Upscaled the Movie to 1080p
    2. Ripped the missing scene from the 2004 DVD
    3. Cropped missing scene to 16:9 and upscaled it to 1080p as well
    4. Used Adobe Premiere to Color-Grade the scene to fit to the movie colors.
    5. Cut it back in.

    I also cutted the original german audio from the 80s (the 2004 one was re-recorded badly).
    Saved a 12GB MKV with English/German audio.

    Here is the missing scene in HD in English.

    The Blu-Ray has a few edited scenes from memory. No idea why.

    It's the only copy available in that quality so none of the missing scenes are available.

    Why?
    The blu ray's a global release. For some markets (I think the main reason was the UK) WB had to remove those scenes in order to get their desired ratings. A single authored blu ray for the entire world market is simply less costly than several different releases.

    I think the dvd hasn't those edits. It's been ages since last watched the dvd, though.

    No, since Moonwalker is far away from being a good movie, i never watch it. Until today where i wanted to dub the HD version with the german original-audio and then i noticed the scene is missing.

    It has been said that it was a decision that the Estate had to make because of the circumstances surrounding the death of Michael Jackson.

    The Estate cut that particular drug scene from the Blu-ray version of that film in order to avoid references to Michael Jackson’s death by Propofol overdose.

    There have been several other edits (cuts, or even slight additions) to the ‘Moonwalker’ film depending on its released version (DVD, Blu-ray, etc) or depending on the territory in which it was released, but generally this happens to almost every other released film, so this is not a big deal.

    I call BS! Where do u get your sources from??? That is not the reason. It was due to showing drugs. The estate didnt even have anything to do with it. It was wb! They own that footage. If thats the case... everything on visions wouldve been upscaled as well

    I think it was to get a child-friendly grading in all territories - like someone mentioned above.

    This BR was the same everywhere it was released, so to make it fit all countries and not risk it was a 15+ age film (or 11+ or whatever) they took out scenes to make it allowed for all audiences. - better sales...

    I doubt the estate had any say in this matter. - Actually I doubt they have even seen the film.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    I cut it back to the movie.

    1. Upscaled the Movie to 1080p
    2. Ripped the missing scene from the 2004 DVD
    3. Cropped missing scene to 16:9 and upscaled it to 1080p as well
    4. Used Adobe Premiere to Color-Grade the scene to fit to the movie colors.
    5. Cut it back in.

    I also cutted the original german audio from the 80s (the 2004 one was re-recorded badly).
    Saved a 12GB MKV with English/German audio.

    Here is the missing scene in HD in English.
