This Is It
- Alfred Music Publishing
Michael Jackson's "This Is It" is a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the performer as he developed, created, and rehearsed for his sold-out concerts at London's O2 arena. Chronicling the months from April through June 2009, this film was produced with the full support of Michael Jackson's estate. The movie draws from more than one hundred hours of behind-the-scenes footage and features Jackson rehearsing a number of his songs for the show. In raw and candid detail, "This Is It" captures the singer, dancer, filmmaker, architect, creative genius, and great artist at work as he develops and perfects the planned London shows. The DVD features an anamorphic widescreen transfer of the film, complemented with a Dolby Digital 5.1 audio track. The Blu-Ray version arrives with a 1080p high definition transfer and DTS 5.1 HD Master Audio. Bonus materials include two documentaries on the making of "This Is It," along with the featurettes "The Gloved One" and "Costumes." Also included are "Memories of Michael" and "Auditions: Searching for the World's Best Dancers."
