Paris Jackson to appear on Ellen

Los Angeles - Michael Jackson's 13-year-old daughter Paris is working on her movie debut - and she will talk about it in public for the first time this week.

Paris, who was 11 when her father died in 2009, will star in a live action/animated movie called Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys, based on a famous book series for teenagers.

The film's website says she plays heroine Lundon O’Malley in a story where magic "turns a dolphin into a human, a teenage boy into a dragonfly and a loving jellyfish queen into an evil fairy godmother."

The website, linked from her Twitter page, adds that she will be on the Ellen DeGeneres television show on Wednesday, talking about the movie for the first time.

Chronic prison overcrowding

Her movie debut news comes after a tough few months for the Jackson family, as the star's doctor Conrad Murray stood trial for involuntary manslaughter over his death on June 25, 2009.

Murray was sentenced to the maximum four years in November, although he is likely to expect to serve less than half of that because of California's chronic prison overcrowding.

"Paris Jackson will talk to Ellen about what life has been like for her and her family in the past few months. She's also starring in the new film, Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys, said DeGeneres' website.

"The theme of the movie, saving the planet, is a cause close to both Paris and her father's heart," it said.

Jackson famously cried at her father's funeral, but managed to speak through her sobs: "Ever since I was born, daddy has been the best father ... you could ever imagine ... And I just wanted to say I love him ... so much."

More recently she appeared on stage with older brother Prince Michael, 14, and nine-year-old Blanket, at a tribute concert for their father in Cardiff, Wales, in October this year.
