Not comics: Captain EO returns to Disneyland

Captain EO

Speaking of Disney, they announced on their Disney Parks Blog that Captain EO, the 3-D film starring Michael Jackson and directed by Francis Ford Coppola, will return to Disneyland in February for a limited engagement.

There was a lot of buzz back in September about the movie potentially returning to the park. Attendees at the D23 convention expected an announcement during the theme park presentation, based on the buzz we heard in the audience, and they were disappointed when that didn’t happen.

Captain EO played at Disneyland from 1986 to 1997, when it was replaced by Honey I Shrunk the Audience. There’s no word yet on how long the “limited engagement” will run.

Why was it called Captain “EO”? Was his name based on the sound MJ made when he screamed after a pose?

YAY!!!!

Can’t wait <3

Mj Rocks ! RIP <3

“There was a lot of buzz back in September…” The MiceAge site first reported on this July 28th.

Oh no, please don’t bring back the Perv. How about some thing new

Exactly, netalff… I never saw Captain EO (you couldn’t have paid me to see it), but from what I understand it was pretty lame. I can only imagine how poorly it holds up more than two decades later. Hell… I’ve seen what replaced it (Honey, I Shrunk the Audience) and that hasn’t aged well at all. Disney needs to upgrade to new stuff, both in Anaheim and Orlando. Muppets 3D is another attraction that needs to go, or at least be replaced by a new, better Muppets film.

Soarin’ (for instance) started out in California and was just recently added in Florida. Great attraction, we went on it several times when we were at Disney World last year. Toy Story Mania was another fun new attracion, but we only got to go on that once due to the massive lines (it had just opened when we were there).

Besides, Jackson was a total perv and a headcase… Is that really the image Disney wants to celebrate?

Yeah, I guess you guys are right. Trying to change the world through song and dance ‘is so lame’ but continuing to abuse the planet works right? You never saw the movie? And nobody could have paid you to see it? It wasn’t even about Mike. It was about changing the planet. Get over yourselves thinking you know it all. Everything about Mike was about changing the planet and making it better. Even the cover of the comic says that much. But Im sure the people you follow are doing a whole lot to change the planet right? JayZ Im sure, or how about That one dumb a$$ who got shot what was his name? Oh yeah, 2Pac…. bunch of lame gangsters preaching violence and murder and drugs. In this world that is what is cool; harming people and the planet, right? Not trying to help the planet and help our fellow man. You people are the rush of humanity that ensures our kind will not survive ourselves. I just hope its you and your kind who go first and not the people who have class and something to offer the planet.

As far as the movie goes, I AM THRILLED MICHAEL WILL BE HONORED IN THIS WAY. GOD BLESS YOU MICHAEL, AND GOD BLESS THE JACKSON FAMILY.
