CLIP: Michael Jackson’s Halloween Special
If you’re looking for something nostalgic, yet contemporary enough to watch this Halloween, CBS’ Michael Jackson’s Halloween might be right up your alley. Currently available through the channel’s online platform, this collaboration between CBS and the late King of Pop’s estate is a CG animated feature that follows Vincent, Victoria, and their dog Ichabod as they are drawn to the mysterious This Place Hotel at 777 Jackson Street on Halloween night. Together with the shape-shifting spirit of Michael Jackson, the protagonists must resist the evil villain Conformity and discover their true creative callings.
By way of a teaser, CBS has released a clip showing young protagonists Vincent (voiced by Lucas Till) and Victoria (Kiersey Clemons) following the sounds of music through a field of oversized, overly-lively pumpkins only to find a Jack-O-Lantern headed figure performing an impromptu number with some animal backup dancers.
