The 3D film attraction Captain EO will be returning to the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL, this Summer!
Captain EO will return to Disney World’s EPCOT park on July 2, 2010, and is scheduled to also open at Tokyo Disneyland on July 1.
Captain EO was a popular 3D attraction at the Disney parks in the mid-1980s which starred Michael Jackson in the lead role. The 17-minute musical scifi-fantasy adventure, which was directed by Francis Ford Coppola and produced by George Lucas (the duo also co-wrote the film), made a highly successful return to Disneyland park in California in February of this year.
No word yet on how long it will run at Disney World, but for now, all we know is that it’s coming! Captain EO took the place of Honey, I Shrunk The Audience at Disneyland California, so chances are it’s will take over that same attraction at Disney World in EPCOT’s Future World section. If that’s the case, I’ll miss Honey, one of my favorite theatrical attractions at Disney World, but I’m still really excited for Captain EO‘s return.
