    On February 26, 2016, Michael Jackson's Journey from Motown to Off the Wall will be released by Sony Legacy Recordings. Spike Lee has spent the last few years putting together the documentary that covers Michael Jackson's meteoric rise to pop fame. Upon release, the film will be packaged with a copy of Michael Jackson's Off the Wall LP.

    The Sundance Institute states about the documentary, “Director Spike Lee assembles a wealth of archival footage, interviews with contemporary talents and family members, and Michael's own words and image to create this insightful chronicle of the star's early rise to fame. An in-depth look at a chapter of his career that is rarely examined, Michael Jackson's Journey from Motown to Off the Wall allows audiences to travel with Michael as he gets his start at Motown, strikes a new path with CBS records, and forges a relationship with legendary producer Quincy Jones. An illuminated portrait emerges of how an earnest, passionate, hard-working boy would become the “King of Pop."

    According to Pitchfork, “The documentary features interviews with The Weeknd, Pharrell Williams, Kobe Bryant, Questlove,Lee Daniels,Misty Copeland, Mark Ronson, John Legend, L.A. Reid, and Jackson's parents, Katherine and Joe."

    The film will premiere at The Sundance Film Festival in late January, and is set to air on Showtime on February 5th.
