Not just another Michael Jackson movie, 'Michael Jackson: The Life of an Icon' is the creation and brain-child of MJ's friend David Gest, who produced and narrated the documentary with unprecedented access to Michael's inner family, including interviews with his mother, Katherine.

The documentary focuses on stories from the star's closest friends and family relaying public and private memories and stories from the entertainer's life including never-before-seen family photos and performance footage. The film also looks at the difficult times during Michael's life including the moment an arrest warrant was ordered and how the molestation trial impacted all their lives in 2005.

Michael's mother Katherine says, "Michael Jackson: The Life of an Icon is a truly remarkable film that captures the true character, wit and sensitivity of my son. Producer David Gest takes you on an emotional roller coaster that will bring people to tears as well as really understand who the man behind the music was and is."

Take a look at the trailer below:

The documentary will be released on DVD and Blu-ray from 31 October 2011.

MJ was accused by proven frauds and liars (chandlers/arvisos) who only wanted to make money, likewise the media saw it was a golden opportunity for them, with the help of a racist DA they succeeded in making MJ "look guilty of something" when all along he was completely innocent. They took his caring attitude towards children and twisted it, I thought everyone got the message by now?
Since the FBI released their MJ Files there are 3 kinds of people: 1- Ignorant (people who don't know shit about it) 2- Retards (people who still believe he's guilty) 3- Smart (People who believe in MJ's innocence) This was the FBI searching for anything incriminating for 12 fucking years and what did they find? Nothing, NOTHING at all, not a single shit. So I can only feel sorry for retards like the haters. Retards don't change, it's a scientific fact. :)
