Janet Jackson Happy 60th To My Brother, Michael ... He Inspired My New Video!!! 29-08-'18

Janet Jackson clearly remembers when she fell in love with Michael Jackson's 'Remember The Time' music video -- TMZ got a peek at her new music video homage to MJ for his 60th birthday.

Janet teamed up with Kwaylon Rogers -- aka @BlameItOnKway to his 3.6 million IG followers -- to shoot this 1-minute, 11-second clip. Janet plays the queen passing judgment on dancers ... just like Iman did in MJ's 1992 video.

The project came about after Kway and Janet met at the Billboard Awards earlier this year. They hit it off and, soon after, Kway pitched the idea of reimagining Michael's hit video and releasing it Wednesday ... the day he would've turned 60.

We're told the group rehearsed -- with Diamond Batiste behind the camera -- for a day and shot the video the next day to Janet's liking. As you should know, MJ's 'Remember The Time' video -- costarring Eddie Murphy and Magic Johnson -- was hailed as a masterpiece.

Kway and King Bach play the dancers desperate for Janet's approval in her tip of the hat to Michael -- which also features her new song, 'Made For Now'.

It's a great tribute on a milestone day for MJ's family, friends and fans.

'Captain EO' Rough Cut Leaks: A New Look at Michael Jackson’s Disney Classic. 19-08-'18

Captain EO DVD Cover'Captain EO' was first introduced to Disney theme parks in 1986, and it was a hit right from the start. In addition to the talents of Michael Jackson, the 3D film was produced by 'Star Wars' creator George Lucas and directed by Francis Ford Coppola. 'Captain EO' was originally shown at Disneyland and Disney World from 1986 to 1996, and then made a return after Michael Jackson passed away in 2009. The movie has captured the imaginations of countless parkgoers over the years and now a new rough cut has surfaced online, providing a very different look at the iconic sci-fi musical.

The newly leaked video shows 'Captain EO' before it was finished. Most of the special effects have not been added and the voices used are the scratch tracks. If you listen closely, you can even hear someone off camera giving directions to the puppeteers. Since the special effects have yet to be added, early models and concept art are provided instead, painting a pretty specific image of what the final film would consist of.

The 'Captain EO' rough features Michael Jackson songs 'We Are Here To Change The World' as well as 'Another Part Of Me', which are in finished form. However, James Horner’s original score is not in place yet. Instead, instrumental cuts of Michael Jackson’s music are spliced in for transition sequences. It’s pretty cool to see the final battle without the use of the special effects, as it puts the focus on some pretty amazing makeup skills that were utilized for the villains, most notably Anjelica Huston’s Supreme Leader character.

The rough 'Captain EO' cut also features some pretty big differences, even without taking the special effects into consideration. The transformation of the Supreme Leader is noticeably different from the final cut and the communication set up with Commander Bog is also radically different from what fans saw on the big screen. In addition, some of the instrumental music provided during the cut scenes are unreleased pieces of Michael Jackson music, which have surfaced over the years on bootleg recordings. One of the cooler bits of unreleased footage comes at the end when the newly transformed Supreme Leader knights 'Captain EO'. As an added bonus, instead of the ship taking off at the end, the planet turns back into a greener world, using footage from 'Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan'.

As with most rough cuts, the 'Captain EO' footage is a fascinating peek behind-the-scenes. The footage gives viewers an insight as to what went on to make the groundbreaking 3D experience a reality. Michael Jackson was at the top of his creative game and George Lucas was fresh off of 'Return Of The Jedi' when 'Captain EO' began to take shape. You can check out the newly leaked rough cut of 'Captain EO' below, thanks to Walt Disney World News Today.

 

Today, the future of 'Captain EO' is in jeopardy due to the current lawsuit between the Michael Jackson Estate and Disney about the ABC documentary on Michael Jackson using unlicensed imagery and music of the King of Pop.

Until both entities come to an agreement, 'Captain EO' is unlikely to come back in the parks or even to get a DVD/Blu-ray soon. Fans [Michael Jackson Fans and Disney Fans] around the world have been campaigning to get the 3D short film on a home format!

Talks started few years ago to bring 'Captain EO' into the “Infinity” world. We guess those talks have now ended abruptly!

'Behind The Mask' Video On Vevo. 04-08-'18

Five years ago we reported on an unreleased music video for Michael’s posthumously released song ‘Behind The Mask'. Now the video has been officially uploaded to the Michael Jackson Vevo account on YouTube. No reason has been given for its surprise release, thought we’re not complaining! The released video for the song back in 2011 was a compilation of many clips showing fans sing along to the song.

 

The video was filmed back in 2011 and directed by Aggressive, who are the directing duo of Alex Topaller and Dan Shapiro. The song itself, though mixed for the 2010 album ‘Michael,’ was originally recorded by Michael in 1982 during the ‘Thriller’ sessions. An agreement to share the royalties equally between the original writers, performers, and Michael broke down and this prevented the song from being released on ‘Thriller', which went on to become the best selling album of all time. ‘Behind The Mask’ remained unreleased for 28 years.
