The official Disney Parks blog has finally confirmed the long-rumored return of “Captain EO” to Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif. beginning in February 2010, but only for a “limited engagement.”
The 17-minute, fan-favorite 3D film stars the late Michael Jackson in a sci-fi battle and will temporarily replace “Honey, I Shrunk the Audience” in Disneyland. Unfortunately, for those of us in Orlando, there are no announced plans to do the same at Epcot. We’ve heard rumors suggesting that it may happen later in the year, but those are still just rumors at this point.
Until then, Michael Jackson fans will have to head to California to enjoy “Captain EO” one more time.
A great set of making-of photos from the 3D film can be found at etonline.com.
