The synopsis for the documentary reads: "Through gut-wrenching interviews with the now-adult men and their families, Leaving Neverland crafts a portrait of sustained exploitation and deception, documenting the power of celebrity that allowed a revered figure to infiltrate the lives of starstruck children and their parents."
The two-part film is directed by Dan Reed, who is also behind documentaries including The Valley, Terror in Mumbai and The Paedophile Hunter.
It will debut at Sundance in Utah on 25 and 26 January and will be shown on Channel 4 in Spring 2019.
The film is a co-production between Channel 4, HBO and Reed, and will be shown in two two-hour broadcasts on consecutive nights in the UK.
Channel 4 told the BBC the film had "been in the pipeline for a few years".
