Michael Jackson's Captain EO is returning to Epcot on July 2

Captain EO, the 3D movie staring Michael Jackson that once played at Epcot, is returning on July 2.

Michael Jackson along with Disney, producer George Lucas and director Francis Ford Coppola created Captain EO. The 17-minute, 3D film ran at Epcot from 1986 to 1994 before being replaced by Honey I Shrunk the Audience.

Honey, I Shrunk the Audience will close in the next few weeks so they can get the theater ready for Captain EO’s return. It’s expected to be a limited run, maybe just for the Summer Nightastic promotion.

Captain EO was perhaps one of the first 4D movies in that it incorporated laser effects, smoke effects and starfields that filled the theater. The 3D technology certainly foreshadowed what was to come.

Captain EO also will return to two other Disney parks. It will open at Tokyo Disneyland on June 30 and Disneyland Paris on June 12.

Here’s a video taken earlier this year when Captain EO returned to Disneyland in California.

  1. Joe’s relationship with his wife & son is irrelevant, the point of having to find out what happened & how much the Estate is making is to assure the rights of Michael’s kids & Katherine. Nothing is being disclosed by the Executors and someone is protecting Murray!

    Branca has a history of embezzling money from Michael, the Executors will rape & pillage Michael’s music, image & name with no opportunity for the children to have a say in their Daddy’s legacy. So how can the Jackson family know the children’s rights are preserved when the Executors are not letting anyone know the amount made since Michael’s death! There are many hands in this death.

    Thank goodness Joe Jackson is speaking out about the greed, corruption & abuse of Michael’s career, Katherine cannot contest or protest. There’s valid reasons why Joe is pushing for justice & the Executors to expose how much Michael is worth dead and who benefits because of it….he is pushing to disclose TRUTH! Support Joe! GOD BLESS.
