A new film about Michael Jackson has begun garnering massive buzz ahead of the Sundance Film Festival.

Leaving Neverland will take a close look at the allegations of sexual assault and abuse made against late pop legend, Michael Jackson by a number of men, including choreographer, Wade Robson.

The Australian-born dancer, 36, previously filed a lawsuit against Jackson’s estate in 2016 asking for $1.62 billion in damages.

In his complaint, Robson claimed that he was raped by the King of Pop for seven years, starting when he was seven and ending when he was 14.

That suit was eventually tossed, with the judge ruling that the singer’s estate could not be held responsible for the allegations being made by Robson.

The film Leaving Neverland is premiering next week.

This has prompted members of Jackson’s family to lash out at the festival and HBO, who will air the documentary later this year.
