The Stars Behind Michael Jackson: Searching For Neverland React To Criticism From The Jackson Family

Michael Jackson

The actors behind Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland are speaking out.

As we reported, the made-for-TV movie is based on the book written by the late singer's bodyguards Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard, Remembering the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson in His Final Days, and is meant to depict the King of Pop's everyday life.

Unfortunately for the cast and crew, the Lifetime TV project hasn't garnered support from the MJ's estate.

In case you missed it, the family said in a statement on Monday:

"To clear up any confusion or misperceptions about unsanctioned Michael Jackson projects currently in the news — including a Lifetime television movie and an animated film script recently purchased by Netflix — the Estate of Michael Jackson does not license or permit the use of any rights it owns, including to Michael's music, images, video and films, for use in unauthorized works seeking to exploit Michael's legacy."

Yikes.

In response, the biopic's stars, Navi (a famed Michael Jackson impersonator) and Chad Coleman (who plays Whitfield) have spoken out about not receiving the estate's approval.

Navi told CBS News:

Sam Worthington Talks Avatar 2

Will Giovanni Ribisi return to Pandora…with a vengeance?

James Cameron still has A LOT of work to do and A LOT of questions to answer for the Avatar sequels, but it's exciting to hear that he's actively working on them.

Here's what marine-turned-Na'vi Jake Sully Sam Worthington had to say about the first sequel:

"We've been discussing that with Jim. He had some ideas he told us while we were filming, which were really cool and out there. At the moment, he's still writing what he calls 'The Bible' and detailing the world. Once he's detailed the world — more so than it's already detailed in his big brain, anyway — then he said he can write the script and we can go explore the world — things like going underwater … going in the floating mountains."

More from Worthington on his character's role in Avatar 2:

"I always joked and said that they were married and Jake Sully got lazy and Netiri kicked his butt. But there is something to [the notion of being] in a genetically-engineered body now, which he is. Is there a "use by" date on it? I don't know."

And more on the Avatar sequel:

"What's the new dilemma? Is it just humans coming back, or is something even bigger than can threaten them, can threaten the world? We can look at our world again and see that we know we're hurting the environment, and we know we can do things about it. But what else are we doing that's wrong so it can reflect on our own life?"

We'll be innerested to see how James Cameron addresses all of these questions.

Are U excited for more Avatar?
