Kenny Ortega, the acclaimed producer of Michael Jackson’s ‘This Is It’ project, has been doing the media rounds ahead of the movie’s simultaneous worldwide release on October 28th. Check out his real interesting chat with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey from yesterday’s episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show (part 1 above, and part 2 below). The vid also includes lengthy exclusive footage from the movie.
I have no qualms in saying this will be a tear-jerker. Admittedly, quite a tough-cookie, even I was welled-up watching this. That said, I feel this movie, in as much as it is about recouping lost money on the tour, I really believe it will be a fine send-off for Mike – with his ‘final’ body of work being solely centred on his immense talent – which lives forever. I’m smiling as I type 🙂
