Captain EO Is Back!!! February 2010

21 12 2009

At first, Disney said it would never happen, but over the weekend this was released on their blog:

“Twenty-three years ago, at the height of his phenomenal entertainment career, Michael Jackson joined forces with Disney to create “Captain EO,” a groundbreaking 17-minute 3D film experience.

We are excited to confirm that the classic musical spectacular that thrilled Disneyland park guests from 1986 – 1997, will return for an exclusive, limited engagement at Disneyland park beginning in February 2010!

The attraction’s return to Tomorrowland will provide new audiences the opportunity to experience the original 3D production for the very first time, as well as a nostalgic look back for longtime fans wanting to see “The King of Pop” in a rare performance created for the big-screen, just one more time.

“Honey I Shrunk The Audience” will be closing sometime in the next few weeks to make way for the Captain’s return.”

I don’t know abt you, but I can definitely remember going to Disneyworld in Orlando, DYING to go see this.  The smoke and the lights and the 3d, and Michael of course, was the best thing that could EVER happen to you as a child I guess.  I grew up, but my love for Captain EO never did.  I read this and almost cried I was so happy.  That may be kinda weird, but we all have things from our childhood that made us just love being alive.  This, was one of those things for me.  I just might wait in line overnight folks… Ya, it’s that serious!
