It was a windy day at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles, but if you were a celebrity, or had a really good publicist, this is where you were at last night. The premiere of Michael Jackson‘s This Is It was where all of Hollywood was.
Director Kenny Ortega said the film’s goal was to “tell a story for the fans.”
Creating the film “was powerful. There was laughter, there were tears,” Ortega said. “This is not the journey that we thought we’d be on, but we had to do this for the fans. This has been very healing.”
Michael’s brothers — Marlon, Randy, Jermaine, Tito and Jackie — walked the red carpet to support the film, which they said they had not yet seen.
“This is what Michael would like to share, his work. He’d be most proud,” Jermaine said. “I want the film to show that with hard work and dedication you can achieve anything.”
