Captain EO Is Back!!!

Did anybody else watch the Michael Jackson 'This Is It' movie? It really wasn't what I expected.... I wasn't expecting the Michael Jackson that I saw on stage. He wasn't the Michael Jackson that you saw in the tabloids. He was in control of everything.... He knew who, where, when and what he wanted and he knew why he wanted it.... And if it weren't for his untimely death, I think it would have been an impressive concert tour.

Anyway, way back in the day, Michael Jackson starred in a little 3D film that was directed by Francis Ford Coppola and produced by George Lucas, called 'Captain EO'. The film stars
Michael Jackson as the leader of a 'rough-around-the-edges' crew headed into space to deliver a gift to the 'Witch Queen' and was a vehicle for the debut of two of Michael Jackson's best songs: 'We Are Here To Change The World' and 'Another Part Of Me".

Now, you couldn't see 'Captain EO' in any old theater.... You could only see the film in Disney parks, and sadly, the movie was removed from Disneyland in 1996. This was one of the must see attractions at Disneyland!

Well.... It's back!!!!! Captain EO came back to Disneyland in full remastered glory yesterday, February 23, 2010! Now, I know that most everybody will not be able to make it out to California to see Captain EO, so I present to you the regular video and the 3D version! Seriously, if you have the glasses, watch the 3D version! Oh, and you need the old school red and blue 3D glasses, not the new Avatar 3D type glasses!




  1. Wow! I totally forgot about Captain EO! Not surprised it made a comeback! Wow!

    Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing

  2. I can honestly say that I never saw this when it was at Disneyland but now that it is remastered and brought back. I might have to make a trip to see it.

    My Thoughts

  3. I read the news on this last night...Guess there were like 500 people that slept out in front of the park to be first in to see it. I loved it back in the day...I can't say I agreed with alot of the stuff MJ did, but he knew how to entertain people. Captian EO is more of an adventure to me than a show...I might make the trip back just for old times sake :)

  4. He was quite the entertainer.... We Are Here To Change The World and Another Part Of Me make me want to dance....

    And it's in the 'Honey I Shrunk The Kids' theater, another 3D movie they put in the park after Captain EO left.... When the mice onscreen escaped from their cages, they shot burst of air at your feet to make you think mice were running throughout the theater.

    I'm glad to see other people are as excited about this as I am.... lol
