Jackson's 'Captain EO' returns to Disneyland
1986 musical begins showing Tuesday and run indefinitelyANAHEIM, Calif. -- "Captain EO" and Michael Jackson are returning to Disneyland.
The park says it will show the 1986 Jackson musical beginning Tuesday and running indefinitely.
On the Disney Parks blog, Disney executive Heather Hust Rivera says the park will show a 70mm print of the 17-minute movie in the Tomorrowland theater, with enhanced sound.
However, Rivera says the showing won't feature some special effects from the original presentation that can't be replicated. She did not elaborate in her blog message.
The original presentation included lasers and smoke.
Jackson, who died of a drug overdose last year, plays the role of a spaceship captain who uses love and music to fight a witch queen played by Anjelica Huston.
The original ran at Disneyland from 1986-97. The new showing replaces the 3-D show "Honey, I Shrunk the Audience."
