The Michael Jackson estate is a confusing one, not to mention quiet. They rarely announce plans for anything, quietly dropping surprise bombs such as this past October’s Halloween compilation “Scream” and sending a restored 3-D version of “Thriller” to film festivals (we still don’t have a release date). Thankfully, not all things Michael Jackson are in their control, which is probably why his legendary Moonwalker randomly appeared on Amazon Prime’s streaming service.
If you haven’t buckled down and picked up the import by now, Moonwalk over to Amazon where you can stream the 1988 masterpiece in full HD!
If you haven’t seen yet, Moonwalker combines Michael Jackson’s greatest videos with rare clips from his early days in the Jackson 5 and live concert and Grammy performances. But that’s all just to whet the palette. Also included is a wild adventure film written by Jackson himself, allowing a rare and unique glimpse into the creative mind of this musical genius.
Look for cameo appearances by Joe Pesci, Mick Jagger, Sean Lennon, Elizabeth Taylor and others!
Pesci is Moonwalker‘s antagonist, a ruthless drug dealer named Mr. Big who is also responsible for kidnapping children. Only, a robot Michael Jackson stands in his path…
As an added bonus, the movie includes the famous “Smooth Criminal” music video in which Jackson shocked the world with his magician-like anti-gravity “lean” move. One warning: beware of spiders.
