The first look of the upcoming Michael Jackson biopic, Michael, is out. Jaafar Jackson, who stars in the movie, dropped the picture on his Instagram handle on Friday. The film is set to release on April 18, 2025.

The black-and-white picture shows Jaafar, the singer’s nephew, in a black fedora as he is seen doing Jackson’s iconic, toe-standing move. Antoine Fuqua of the The Equalizer franchise is the director of the movie while John Logan, the writer of Gladiator, has written this project.

The biopic is set to cover all aspects of Jackson’s life, meaning it could include the child sexual assault allegations made against the singer. Jackson passed away in 2009.
