A few days ago I got to speak with director Kenny Ortega for Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” as a reporter for our partner’s at Omelete.  Since Ortega has spoken at great length about the project to other websites and media outlets, I tried to ask some news questions.  The main thing I wanted to know was since they had shot around 100 hours of footage when documenting the rehearsals, how much additional footage could fans expect to see on the eventual DVD/Blu-ray.  According to Ortega, we’re going to get between two and three hours of additional footage.  He also told me it won’t be added into the movie like a director’s cut but will be part of the extras section.  And for people wondering when it’ll be released, he says early next year.  Watch the full interview after the jump:

Kenny Ortega

  • Has he ever been to Brazil
  • Did anyone help him decide what to use from the 100 hours of footage
  • What will be on the DVD/Blu-ray – says early next year it will be released and there will be 2 or 3 hours of additional footage
  • Says the movie will be as is and all the additional footage will be a separate section of the DVD
  • What is he doing next

The one thing that really jumped out at me was he said 2-3 hours of behind the scenes footage… hahaha isn’t it all behind the scene footage?!  Guess not! He describes this footage as going deeper into the plan… what plan Kenny? 😛

All in all this was hilarious!
