This Is It
In the weeks before his fatality, Michael Jackson (August 29, 1958 - June 25, 2009) was practicing a show, "This Is It," that was to open in July. This film begins with a few of the auditioning dancers talking with the cam concerning why they're checking out as well as just what Jackson implies to them. Then we dive right into wedding rehearsals at Staples Facility in Los Angeles. The film is prepared by musical number with pre-recorded material and video from Jackson's numerous practice sessions edited with each other to take us through what would have been the concert's set listing.
