Despite having the artist’s name on the title, “Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker” does not have the widest assortment of home media releases. The film was initially only released on VHS in the United States and never appeared on DVD or Blu-Ray in the country (via MTV). Instead, the film only received a U.K. Region Blu-Ray release. Thankfully, audiences can view Jackson’s colorful vision on Amazon Prime, where the movie can either be rented or purchased.

As told by Jackson’s manager at the time, Frank DiLeo, in a behind-the-scenes documentary, the film was thought up by Jackson when the artist was creating a storyline around his song, “Smooth Criminal.” This expanded over time, as what began as a short story became a feature film that saw several Jackson songs receive their own narratives to be included. Jackson would then work on the film while simultaneously balancing his hectic “Bad” tour and producing his album of the same name. Jackson would fully finance the film, giving him complete creative control. The film’s many segments had many notable names involved in their production. This included Will Vinton – best known for the creation of the California Raisins through his signature Claymation technique– who produced the “Speed Demon” segment. Colin Chilvers directed the “Smooth Criminal” segment and is best known for his effects work on the first three “Superman” films starring Christopher Reeve and the first “X-Men” film.
