“All of the copies of Thriller out there now are duped, and it used to drive me crazy. I’d been trying to get to the negative for a long time as the new digital technologies are amazing at restoring films. And Michael and I always intended for people to see Thriller in a movie theater. But we didn’t just restore Thriller. We enhanced it … like in that scene in the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy and the others are being buffed and polished inside Emerald City,” Landis says. There are no many details about the Michael Jackson’s Thriller 3D but fans will likely get to know more in the coming weeks.
