Michael Jackson, Wade Robson (Courtesy of HBO)The first official trailer for the upcoming HBO documentary Leaving Neverland is out, and in it, two men who claim Michael Jackson abused them as kids are speaking out.
The trailer features video footage and photos of the two men — Wade Robson and James Safechuck — as children, hanging out with Michael and frolicking at Neverland.
“The days were filled with magical childhood adventure experiences,” says Safechuck. “Playing tag, watching movies, eating junk food, anything you could ever want as a child.”
“Just kid things. They were just doing kid things,” recalls Safechuck’s mother.
We also see a sweet video message from the late King of Pop, wishing Wade a happy birthday.
“He just came across as a loving, caring, kind soul,” says Robson’s mother. “It was easy to believe that he was just that.”
While neither man mentions what else happened at Neverland in the trailer, Robson says, “He told me that if they ever found out what we were doing, he and I would go to jail for the rest of our lives.”
“I wanna be able to speak the truth as loud as I had to speak the lie for so long,” he adds.
The controversial two-part documentary premieres on HBO March 3 and 4th. Both Michael Jackson’s estate and his family have denounced the film.
