Vote of the week: To EO or not to EO?
Written by Robert Niles
Soon after Michael Jackson died last month, some Disney fans asked that the company bring the "Captain EO" 3D movie, which starred Jackson, back to the parks. Disney dumped the show when Jackson's popularity waned amid child abuse allegations, replacing it with the "Honey, I Shrunk the Audience" 4D show.Tweet
Someone at Disney must have thought it a worthy idea, because company brass arranged a screening of the film, and some reported that "Captain EO"'s return was imminent.
Yesterday, however, Disney CEO Bob Iger threw water on that fire, denying that the company would bring back the show. Still, Disneyland watcher Al Lutz says that Iger's denial was a ploy, and that EO's return will be announced either tomorrow or after the New Year.
So what should Disney do with its Disneyland and Epcot theaters that are now showing "Honey, I Shrunk the Audience"? That's our vote of the week.
