HBO Releases Controversial 'Leaving Neverland' Trailer

February 19, 2019

The trailer for Leaving Neverland, the controversial HBO documentary on the two accusers of Michael Jackson was released on Tuesday.

Watch the trailer, here...

The 2-part, 4-hour film features former child actor James Safechuck and choreographer Wade Robson recall their disturbing childhood experiences with the late megastar. The two men alleged they were molested by Jackson when they were young and sued Jackson's estate after the King of Pop's death in June 2009.

The estate of Michael Jackson called the documentary, "disgraceful" and released a 10-page letter to HBO discrediting the stories by Robson and Safechuck. The estate said the men are lying and the filings in court and story inconsistencies prove that.

At the Sundance Film Festival in January 2019, the two men attended a screening of Leaving Neverland, to which they received an unprecedented standing ovation.

Part 1 of Leaving Neverland premieres on HBO on March 3rd. The second part airs the following day.
