Michael Jackson's ground breaking 3D film Captain EO will return to Disneyland in California in February 2010 replacing the attraction Honey I Shrunk the Audience!
On December 18th, 2009 according to the DisneyParks Blog and Heather Hust Rivera, Social and Print Media Manager of Disneyland Resorts confirmed with the statement: "Honey, I Shrunk the Audience!” will be closing sometime in the next few weeks to make way for the Captain’s return."
Captain EO originally opened on September 12, 1986 in Epcot Center in Orlando Florida and then on September 18, 1986 in Disneyland in Anaheim, California.
The film stars Michael Jackson as Captain EO, and Anjelica Huston as the Supreme Leader. It was written by George Lucas and directed by Francis Ford Coppola.
It is 17 minutes long and cost $30 million to make, making it at the time the most expensive movie per minute ever. Averaging 1.76 million per minute to make.
The story revolved around Captain EO and his space crew confronting the evil witch Supreme Leader. EO uses music to change the world and transform the evil witch and her kingdom into good and beauty.
Captain EO is considered by many to be the first '4-D' film (4-D being the name given to a 3-D film which incorporates in-theater effects (such as lasers, smoke, etc.) frame synced to the film narrative). This innovation was suggested by producer-writer Rusty Lemorande who is, therefore, sometimes referred to as "The Father of 4-D".
Captain EO's return to Disneyland is only for a limited time and no word has been confirmed if the film will return to any other Disney park locations yet.
