Five years after the followers of the King of Pop began their particular crusade of denials about ‘Leaving Neverland’ (Dan Reed, 2019), one of the most controversial documentaries in the history of cinema, Jackson’s acolytes will be able to return to the rooms with a renewed spirit thanks to ‘Michael’, the biopic about him starring his nephew, Jaafar Jackson, who we can already see become his uncle during filming.

Jaafar Jackson, son of Jermaine Jackson (member of The Jackson 5), has been a singer and dancer since he was 12 years old. He released his first and so far only original single, ‘Got Me Singing’, 3 years ago, making it clear that both the tone of voice and the dance steps of his uncle have been well rehearsed.

On the other hand, Juliano Krue Valdi will play the young Michael Jackson during the period in which he and his brothers rose to fame as The Jackson 5. “Michael began to stand out very young, at only 11 years old, astonishing the world with his vitality, spirit and talent of a true star. He was truly a very mature soul for his age. He and Juliano have that in common,” says producer Graham King. “Beyond being a phenomenal young talent, Juliano is deeply inspired by Michael and his music, and has managed to translate that inspiration into a presence and a performance that captures the true magic of young Michael Jackson“.

The really interesting thing about ‘Michael’ comes when we look at its director, the well-known Antoine Fuqua, the genius who conquered us in video stores thanks to ‘Replacement Killers’ (1998) and who has managed to give us some gems like ‘Training Day (Training Day)’ (2001), available on HBO Max, and ‘The Equalizer 2’ (2018), available on Movistar Plus+.

The first films of my career were music videos, and I still feel that combining film and music is a deep part of who I am.“explains the filmmaker, responsible for the clips for ’s ‘The Most Beautiful Girl in the World’ and Coolio’s ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’. “For me, there is no artist with the power, charisma and pure musical genius by Michael Jackson. I was influenced to make music videos by seeing his work: the first black artist to perform on MTV. His music and those images are part of my worldview, and the opportunity to tell his story on screen alongside his music was irresistible.”

According to its official synopsis, ‘Michael’ will give the public “a profound, never-before-told portrait of the complicated man who became the King of Pop. The film will explore all aspects of Michael Jackson’s life, including his most iconic performances that led him to become the greatest entertainer of all time. Will it become one of the best biopics in film history?
