Michael Jackson: This Is It is documentary that goes behind the scenes with Michael Jackson, capturing the artist from April 2009 through June 2009 just before his death as he developed, created, and rehearsed for his 50 planned “This Is It” sold-out concerts that were scheduled for Summer 2009 in London’s O2 Arena. The film was directed by Jackson’s creative partner for the concerts, Kenny Ortega, who put together the film from over one hundred hours of behind-the-scenes footage of Jackson rehearsing for the concerts, which would have included elaborate stage sets and concepts, like a graveyard-set “Thriller” number. This is the last look at the performer in action (the resulting concerts of which would have marked his return to concert touring after a 10-year hiatus).
