The Sundance Film Festival is still a week away, but there is already a film that generates an enormous amount of buzz.
Leaving Neverland will take a closer look at the accusations of sexual assault and abuse of Michael Jackson by a number of men, including choreographer Wade Robson.
He is known by many as the man who reportedly came between Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake and inspired Timberlake to write the disintegrated national anthem Cry Me A River.
Australian-born dancer, 36, filed a lawsuit against the Jackson estate in 2016 and claimed $ 1.62 billion in damages.
In his complaint, Robson claimed that he had been raped for seven years by the King of Pop, starting when he was 7 and ending when he was 14.
That suit was eventually thrown, where the judge ruled that the legacy of the singer could not be held responsible for the allegations that Robson did.
The court made no remarks about the legal validity of the lawsuit, but the Jackson family was very open-hearted about the fact that Robson had testified on behalf of the singer in his 2005 trial.
And the family is not staying this time either, picks up at HBO for retrieving the documentary and Sundance for screening the function next Friday and Saturday in Park City.

Backfire: this has prompted members of Jackson's family to leave the festival and HBO, who will release the documentary later this year
Jackson's nephew Taj, whose father is Tito, is exulting about the documentary shown on Twitter.
& # 39; To all sponsors of @Sundance. I advise you to do your own homework on Wade Robson and James Safechuck, read one of the tweets.
& # 39; By supporting their lies, you are now part of it and we will remember that everything implodes. You can no longer argue for ignorance. & # 39;
He also wrote: & # 39; I am sure that there will be some incredible films that will be screened and shown at the festival. Films in which people put their hard earned money and life. But @Sundance endangers these films in order to host, promote and show a film in which two tried-and-trusted scam artists shine. & # 39;
Jackson's official account also shared a tweet aimed at shocking HBO, which stated: & # 39; In 1992 Michael HBO gave their highest rated special ever. To repay him now, they give a voice to liars. #StopLeavingNeverlandNOW. & # 39;
That was a reference to Jackson's very first television concert, which was broadcast on the network in October 1992 after it was recorded in Bucharest.
Robson testified under oath in 2005 that Jackson had never touched him improperly or had abused him during their time together
The special hit the previews of the provider of the pay cable against the ground, scored a 21.4 rating and 34 share in the approximately 17.5 million homes with subscriptions.
It was during this time that Robson claimed that he was being sexually abused by Jackson.
Robson said in his court that the alleged abuse he had suffered through Jackson was: "kissing and kissing with a kiss; Michael Jackson rubs [Robson’s] penis and have [Robson] rub it; Michael Jackson masts while watching [Robson] from behind on all fours, naked, with his knees and palms outstretched like a dog on all fours; Michael Jackson is spreading [Robon’s] buttocks and stick his tongue and lick [Robson’s] anus while masturbating using lotion; the mutual caress of genitals with their hands and mouth; mutual fellatio & # 39; and more.
Submission: Robson filed a lawsuit against Jackson's $ 1.5 billion estate in 2016 claiming that he had been raped by Jackson for seven years, aged 7 to 14 years.
Robson claimed in his party that Jackson lost interest in him when he turned 14, but before that he had told the boy: we can never tell anyone what we are doing. People are ignorant and would never understand that we love each other and so we show it. If someone ever discovered that our life would be over, then the career would be over. & # 39;
Fans of Jackson and his family were shocked when they heard about the filing since Robson was a crucial witness in Jackson's acquittal of similar charges in 2005.
At the trial he testified under oath that Jackson had never touched him improperly or had abused him during his time together.
Robson responded to the criticism by saying: "I did not believe I was forced. I believed that I was a consenting participant in the sexual acts. & # 39;
