Chinese Developers Look to Build Mini Version of Michael Jackson's Ranch

According to the Los Angeles Times, Chinese developers are planning to make a miniature version of Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch in China to commemorate the life of the pop superstar.

Details are scant about the project, but it's estimated to cost about 100 million yuan ($15 million) to build. Investor Qiu Xuefan told Reuters, "By building a Neverland here in China, we want to pay tribute to [Michael Jackson] and at the same time offer the Chinese people an outlet for expressing their love toward him."

Not everyone is on board with the plans to remember Michael Jackson through a mini replica of Neverland Ranch in China. Deputy head of Michael Jackson's Chinese fan club Wei Wei, told Reuters, "If the purpose is simply to pay tribute to Michael, I would suggest investors open it for free, just as Michael did for the children. Otherwise, they are just making money from it."
