it will be in 4k. "i'm still standing" was on 16mm, meaning billie jean will have the same quality as it's remaster.Shame if Billie Jean wasn't scanned in 4K, yes it was shot on 16mm film... But - 16mm was also the same format to which The Beatles: Get Back was shot on, just saying... We'll see if it comes in any way.
This came out lots longer than I intended, hear with me;If I recall correctly, Korgnex posted that Sony was pushing for Thriller 40 but the estate had no interest, and this was kinda thrown together to appease them. Apparently the two new songs were among those considered for MICHAEL and XSCAPE, hence why they already had the clearance to show up on disc 2.
If this is accurate, it’s astonishing that Sony has more of a passion for supporting MJ than his own estate. This on top of them not wanting remixes on Bad 25 speaks volumes.

I've given Sony under Tommy Mottola grief for the way they promoted Invincible and how it was at odds with MJ. But the fact remains, they did want to promote it. I found it an inferior way to do so, but the intention was there. MJ going to perform wasn't a bad idea either, but it's a bigger fault of the industry at large that an artist does have to travel the whole globe. You can't expect MJ to have to do that just to stay relevant. The actual solution to that didn't really come to pass until the Pandemic a couple years ago. Virtual Tours probably, that's what MJ would've wanted to do, I think.
*Holograms*, Livestream shows, any sorts of things like that. A random daydream like that, imagine.
Regardless, my point is, Sony is not the true bad guy. I disliked what happened but they're not true villains. Not when Murray, AEG, the Casios, Chandler's, etc, are all right there. And MJ unfortunately allowed them all into his life. Sad but true fact of life, watch your associates. And regulate yourself.
Did they not make the money back? Have they ever made anything less than a profit with MJ involved? That's my first question.The Sony thing was just them not wanting to spend any more money promoting Invincible after funding it for years and MJ not bothering his ass to get it finished, delay after delay, hotel rooms and studios being booked for no reason because MJ didn't bother turning up. Then on top of that he told them he was leaving the label, why would they spend the amounts required to promote an artist who intended to leave and go to another label straight after?
Awesome idea. I’m sure people will whine because not everybody will be able to go, but a museum would be incredible.Branca has confirmed on Tik Tok that they are planning on making an MJ museum either at the Encino house or in Gary, Indiana.
