  • Michael Jackson's This Is It is a 2009 American documentary–concert film directed by Kenny Ortega that documents Michael Jackson's rehearsals and preparation for the concert series of the same name scheduled to start on 13 July 2009, but canceled due to his death eighteen days prior on 25 June. It is the last film Jackson starred in. The film consists of Jackson rehearsing musical numbers and directing his team, and additional behind the scenes footage including dancer auditions and costume design. The film's director Kenny Ortega confirmed that none of this footage was originally intended for release, but after Jackson's death it was agreed that the film be made. The footage was filmed in California at the Staples Center and The Forum, and features a clip from London's O2 Arena where Jackson publicly announced the concert series. Despite originally being set for 30 October, the film's release date was rescheduled for 28 October 2009, due to a strong demand by Jackson's fans. The film was given a worldwide release and a limited two-week theatrical run from 28 October, to 12 November 2009, but theatrical release was later extended.
