CAPTAIN EO RETURNS TO DISNEYLAND

  • on: December 19, 2009, 07:20:00 PM
Michael's Capt. Eo will be showing again in Disneyland by February.  I guess, Disney co. was thinking they should also dip into Michael's films since Michael generates income.

Here's the link http://travel.latimes.com/daily-deal-bl ... disn-6065/

And here's the contents of the link :
After months of repeated and emphatic denials, Disneyland has announced plans to bring back the Michael Jackson 3-D movie “Captain EO” starting in February.

Following the success of the “This Is It” concert film, Disney has decided to dust off the 23-year-old music video for a “limited engagement” at the Anaheim theme park.

The 17-minute “Captain EO” cost an estimated $30 million and featured a star-studded list of credits, including executive producer George Lucas, director Francis Ford Coppola and Anjelica Huston as the evil Supreme Leader.

The 3-D movie — featuring lasers, smoke and stars that extend into the audience — tells the story of Captain EO on a mission to deliver a musical gift to a wicked alien queen on a dystopian planet. EO’s rag-tag crew included his sidekick Fuzzbucket, security officer Major Domo and blundering shipmate Hooter.

Jackson’s EO character used music — specifically the original song “We Are Here to Change the World” — to defeat the queen and her whip-wielding henchmen.

Back in 1986, everybody wanted a piece of the hottest pop star in the world. So it was with much fanfare that Disneyland introduced “Captain EO,” starring Michael Jackson.

It was an association the family-friendly amusement park would eventually come to regret as the bizarre pop star became increasingly embroiled in controversy.

“Captain EO” opened in Disneyland’s Magic Eye Theater in 1986 and ran for more than a decade, quietly closing in 1997.

Identical versions of the film eventually opened at Epcot in Florida, Tokyo Disneyland and Disneyland Paris. All closed by 1998.

Michael Jackson died in June
.

By the way, if you click on the link - there's a poster of Capt. EO.

Yes. I read that as well.  Didn't they remove his film when all his legal trouble started but gave reasons to the contrary?  I remember seeing the film at Disneyland.  It was great!

I remember seeing it as a kid in the 80's as well.

This is a very good sign as it indicates the tide of public perception is changing back to where it ought to be.... where WE know it should be. Disney would never touch anything that wasn't perceived to be family friendly so if they are reinstating Captain Eo that means market research indicates that the majority of their target demographic (children and families) equate Micheal Jackson with favorable name recognition.

So really, this move by Disney means VERY GOOD THINGS.
