Captain Eo At Disney Parks Worldwide
Michael’s iconic 3D movie, Captain Eo which ran in Disneyland and Epcot, Florida, in the 1980’s and 1990’s, was re-introduced at Disneyland in California shortly after Michael died. Following petitions from fans for it to be featured at other Disney Parks, it has been announced that it will open at Disneyland Paris on June 12th, in Tokyo Disneyland on June 30th, and in Epcot in Walt Disney World Resort in Florida on July 2nd.
The new Captain EO Tribute contains a new 70mm print of the seventeen minute film and its venue and sound have been upgraded. “The attraction’s return provides 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 Jackson in a rare performance created for the big screen,” the Walt Disney company said in a recent statement.
