The spirit of MJ will be alive this Halloween. CBS and the Estate of Michael Jackson are teaming up on a thrilling animated special, which is set to air this fall.
The hour-long “Michael Jackson’s Halloween” will feature millennials Vincent and Victoria, voiced by Lucas Till and Kiersey Clemons, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The duo will find themselves at the mysterious This Place Hotel, located at 777 Jackson Street, where they will go on an adventure before a dance-filled finale. The piece will be soundtracked by MJ’s discography.
