Michael Jackson's This is it (2009)

Directed by
Kenny Ortega

When the news dropped that King of Pop Michael Jackson had died at the age of 50, MJ fans worldwide went into meltdown.

Those with tickets to his sold-out concerts at London's 02 Arena were, perhaps, even more distraught because the comeback concerts that were set to re-ignite the megastar's career would now never take place.

Whilst it won't ever be possible to see Jackson in action again, thanks to director Kenny Ortega and the Michael Jackson Estate, the most extraordinary stage show that never was is brought to life.

Choreographer Kenny Ortega puts together a razzle-dazzle compilation of interviews, rehearsals and backstage footage of Michael Jackson's sold-out but never-to-be-staged This Is It tour. Described by Jacko's longtime friend Elizabeth Taylor as "the single most brilliant piece of filmmaking I have ever seen", it's clearly one last moonwalk for fans. Anyone else can Beat It.
