Michael Jackson: Spectacular “Thriller” Documentary Coming!

For the 40th anniversary of “Thriller” there will be a new, as yet untitled documentary. According to Deadline, the making-of project has already been commissioned by Sony Music. It is directed by music historian and director Nelson George.

The film is intended to depict Michael Jackson’s still breathtaking rise from a major musical talent to the biggest pop star in the world and, as many already know, will feature never-before-seen footage and interviews from the musician, who in 2009 passed away, show . The film also focuses on the creation of the then-spectacular and epoch-making music videos for the famous singles “Thriller”, “Billie Jean” and “Beat It”.

How Michael Jackson Became a Superstar

In a press release, filmmaker Nelson George is quoted as saying that Michael Jackson “reinvented himself” with “Thriller” and it propelled him “from teen star to adult superstar.” The album’s visuals, including the music tracks in particular, created a fruitful connection between music and image that was hardly thought possible at the time.

“Thriller” was released on November 30, 1982. The record won a total of eight Grammys and is still the most popular album of all time with nearly 50 million copies sold.

As with other feature length commemoratives, there will be a deluxe edition accompanying the making of documentary. “Thriller 40” features demos and rarities along with a remastered version of the original. Highlights are the previously unreleased songs “She’s Trouble” and “The Toy”.
