The eighth child of the Jackson family, Jackson made his professional debut in 1964 with his older brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, and Marlon as a member of the Jackson 5 

At the height of his career, Jackson created an ambitious anthology feature film, 1988's "Michael Jackson's Moonwalker.

"The Wiz" and "Captain EO," this would be his first time taking charge of his own cinematic vision

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
