This seems strange , this is it was ment to be a concert and the rehearsals were filmed.So how can they have a programme on the making? i thought we saw that with the this is it film.This is all very confusing.

I just picked up my copy of the This is It DVD this afternoon and am just settling in to watch it. It says on the cover that it contains over 1 hour of never-before-seen features. Can't wait.

This is the 3rd time I've tried to post this - maybe 3ks the charm.

I didn't think the DVD was out 'til the 26th either so I was surprised when they called yesterday to say it was in. I'm in Canada - don't know why we're so lucky but awfully glad we are.

The DVD cover says it inclides 2 Documentaries and 3 Featurettes. 1.  The Gloved One - Costumes. 2.  Memories of Michael and 3.  Auditions:  Searching for the World's Best Dancers.

Better get ready for the Waterworks to start.

Oh my God. I juist finished watching the first documentary on the DVD - Staging the Return - and you are going to be stunned by Michael's genious. But devistated that he didn't get to unveil his masterpiece. I don't want to spoil it for others but Michael had planned a blockbuster stage exit at the end of the show. In addition to the 3D Thriller the finale would have been a 3D jawdropper.

I can't wait for you all to see it - but keep the Kleenex handy. The interviews with Kenny O. Alex Al, Travis Payne et.al are wonderful but heartbreaking at the same time. Their sentiments are similar - working with Michael is one of the greatest gifts of their lives and he was a genious and happy and ready to show the world the real Michael Jackson - and then they talk of the sadness that they feel that he didn't get to do it.

Me again. I think I found out the mystery of the white Tshirt we saw Michael in when he was trying on one of his costumes for the concert. In the featurette on the DVD - the Gloved One - Zaldy shows the various costumes Michael was to wear for each of his songs. The Tshirt is part of one of the costumes and the design on it is the MJ logo done in Swarovski crystals.

Again I don't want to spoil it for anyone but all I can say is I am completely blown away by what Zaldy created for Michael. According to Zaldy Michael was ecstatic with the designs to the point where he was speechless. That makes me happy to know that Michael loved them and even Kenny said the costumes were the best Michael had had in any of his previous concerts. Kingly, Rock Star and Classic is how Kenny described them.

Well I finished watching the DVD and I can't wait for you all to see it so I can hear your thoughts/opinions.

Even after watching the hard part - Memories of Michael - I am still a believer that Michael is alive. My thoughts when I was watching this part are that only so many people can be in on the hoax without jeopardizing the whole thing. I believe Kenny is but the rest of the people who speak about Michael's "passing" honestly believe he is gone and they are heartsick. As we all once were.

So hurry folks and watch the DVD so we can share thoughts on what we see.

Keeping the Faith strong in Canada!

What I have noticed is all the comments about how sad they are are about him NOT being able to do the concert! Not that they are sad that he passed away (hate saying that  :(  even though I know he isn't) but they are sad because he didn't get to do the concerts! This was mentioned on twitter and I agree that they kept saying that they were sad about the concert not coming to be and that Michael didn't get to do the concerts. SO maybe they all thought he had every intention of doing the concerts (or maybe he did too) but then something happened where he had to fake his death and the concerts were never meant to be.

This is my take on it  :D

So do you think many of the key players involved in TII are aware of the hoax?  I prefer your interpretation of their comments Jennyapplehead. I'm going to watch again from that reference point.

Just testing. I just did a long post on the DVD extras and didn't see it - sooo - I'm just testing to see if I'm doing something dumb from my end. If this gets posted I'll repost

Technology is obviously not my strength

Rats!  Guess I lost the first post - so here we go again.

One thing that was sooooo obvious in the DVD extras is that Michael was totally in control. There is absolutely no evidence that he was the weak manipulated pawn portrayed in the (ugh) tabloids.

Kenny gave full credit to Michael's creative genious being the cornerstone of the entire spectacular production. Michaels is described as being bold, breaking boundaries and being totally in control and in charge. He was passionate, involved and engaged in every aspect of the creation of TII. From the lighting, to the set design, the pyrotechnics, the 3D films, selection of the dancers - everything. Kenny says "He (Michael was in charge - like an old fashioned entertainer. Technology didn't run the show; Michael ran the show. And when he stopped - you watched - and you held your breath. And that's what made Michael Jackson Michael Jackson on stage. And why he was different than anybody else you went to see in concert.

There's a point in the DVD during a run through of the Thriller 3D rehearsal where Michael takes a seat where the audience will be and just watches. He wanted to know what the audience would be experiencing - the look of delight on his face is priceless. With good reason. This would be the very first time a concert audience would be able to have the 3D experience at a live concert.

They have a 100x30 ft 3D LED HD screen where they start the graveyard sequence and then the live Zombie performers are on stage with the 3D screen as a backdrop. After Michael emerges from the Black Widow elements would go off the stage into the arena and drop from the ceiling - which Michael liked to call 4D. A Thriller spectacular - another Michael masterpiece.

Michael was genuinelu excited about the costumes created for him by Zaldy. I'll describe the Billie Jean costume - it was amazing. First the sequined socks lit up; then - the stripe in the tuxedo pants lit up and the inseam of Michael's arms in the black sequined jacket lit up with the light finally culminating in his sequined glove. Zaldy worked with scientists from Phillips Technology who jumped at the opportunity to work on something for Michael.

The light show could be pre-programmed with the choreography or operated remotely - like. WII game. Zaldy said Michael's favourite was rainbow colours changing to a bright pulsating light.

I think Zaldy really got Michael and Michael's visions for his songs and his art. There are so many jaw dropping costumes and I really don't want to spoil it for you. I'll just say that each and every costume is unique, exquisite, artistic and beautiful - just like the man for whom they were designed.

I cannot wait for you all to see this for yourselves. I can't do it justice.
