Michael Jackson’s Music Will Be Soundtrack For Upcoming CBS Halloween Special
Michael Jackson and his lasting legacy in music will be available for fans until the test of time, and the late King of Pop’s estate has been gracious in bringing forth more of his art to the masses. This fall, CBS will use Jackson’s music as a backdrop for a new animated Halloween special.
The network has teamed with the estate of the late pop star for a new animated special for which his extensive discography will serve as the soundtrack, it was announced Tuesday.
Titled Michael Jackson’s Halloween, the hour-long telecast will follow millennials Vincent (MacGyver star Lucas Till) and Victoria (The Flash film’s Kiersey Clemons), who meet “accidentally” on Halloween night and find themselves, along with Ichabod the dog, at a mysterious hotel located at 777 Jackson Street called This Place Hotel. Once inside, Vincent and Victoria go an unexpected, magical adventure of personal discovery, culminating in a spectacular dance finale featuring an animated Jackson.
Without fully knowing, most would expect that Jackson’s mega-hit “Thriller” will get top billing in this special considering the theme.
Michael Jackson’s Halloween does not have an official air date yet.
