Jackson kids star in tribute film

Paris Jackson has revealed that her father Michael had wanted to teach her how to moon walk.

The 15-year-old admitted she had intended to learn the star's signature dance move before his untimely death in June 2009, as she gave a glimpse into their life i n Remembering Michael, a new documentary which has been executive produced by the family's matriarch Katherine Jackson.

"He promised me he would teach me how to moon walk. Never got around to it," Paris said in a preview, seen on

"I really hope his legacy lives on forever. I know it will. I will definitely never forget him, ever. He was amazing," she added.

Paris revealed the siblings mostly kept to themselves. She said: "We didn't know a lot of kids our age. We were more secluded. We never really left the ranch that often."

Her younger brother Blanket, 11, added: "We had kind of like a zoo basically. Giraffes, lions. You've probably heard of it, but yeah, a chimp named Bubbles."

Prince, the eldest of the siblings at 16, admitted he never knew his father's real name during his early years.

"It took me till I was like six years old to learn that his name was Michael Jackson, because he was always 'Daddy' to me. He wanted us to always be, like, what we wanted to be, just be greater at it than anybody else has ever been," he said.

The pay-per-view documentary, which also features interviews with Michael's mother Katherine, his father Joe, celebrity friends amongst others and intimate family photos, can be viewed on by fans who pay a 10-dollar fee online.

Katherine hopes that Remembering Michael, which is nearly finished, will be released in time to mark the fifth anniversary of Michael's death in 2014.
