It can’t be only us who turn the volume all the way up while listening to Thriller around Halloween time. Michael Jackson’s tune is the perfect addition to the season, and yes, Halloween is a season. Soon, thanks to news that broke yesterday, Thriller won’t be the legend’s only big Halloween contribution.
Coming to CBS this year is Michael Jackson’s Halloween, which will be an animated special featuring an incredible voice cast and amazing music from Jackson’s discography. After hearing those details and the premise of the special, we’re even more excited for Halloween to get here.
Vincent, voiced by Lucas Till and Victoria voiced by Kiersey Clemons meet on ‘accident’ on Halloween night and they end up at a mysterious hotel with the address 777 Jackson Street. Along with Ichabod the dog, they find themselves in the midst of a magical adventure at This Place Hotel (a nod to Jackson’s song with the same title) and they come across the king of pop himself for a dance number at the end.
