And yes, they ARE working with Michael’s estate, so they’ll be able to use his animated likeness. And obviously, his music will be on the soundtrack.
The special will be an hour long, and it’ll be about two young people who meet ‘accidentally’ on Halloween night, and find themselves at a mysterious hotel located at 777 Jackson Street.
According to the press release, while they’re at the hotel they, quote, “go on an unexpected, magical adventure of personal discovery, culminating in a dance finale [with] an animated Michael Jackson.”
The voice cast includes: Jim Parsons, Lucy Liu, Christine Baranski, Alan Cumming, George Eads, Brad Garrett, and Lucas Till from the new “MacGyver” show. The special will air sometime this fall.
