Disney has confirmed that Michael Jackson's Captain EO will reopen, and it looks like the return of the George Lucas Produced Franncis For Coppola directed 3D musical film will happen sooner than we thought... next week!
It will be back at Disneyland's Tomorrowland on Tuesday, February 23rd!
As a tribute to the magic, music and messages of “Captain EO,” the 3-D musical adventure is returning to the Tomorrowland theater in which it debuted. While it’s not possible to replicate some special effects elements from the original presentation, it will boast a new 70mm print of the film, and it will sound better than ever thanks to acoustic enhancements made to the theater since the film last played there in 1997.
I think it's great that a new generation of kids will be able to enjoy this film. I have memories rowing up viewing this film, and I think it's awesome that I'll be able to share it with my kids.
