Captain EO reviews
Theme Park Insider takes a look back at Captain EO, a movie in Tomorrowland at Disneyland that's no longer open.
Written by Robert Niles
Originally opened in fall of 1986, this 17-minute space/sci-fi themed 3D film stars Michael Jackson on a mission to deliver a gift to the "The Supreme Leader".
This film was produced by George Lucas, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, and stars Michael Jackson (as Captain EO), Anjelica Huston (as the Supreme Leader), and Dick Shawn (as Commander Bog).
The EO of Michael Jackson's character is Greek for "dawn".
While the original show ended in spring of 1997, this attraction reopened February 23, 2010, in the Magic Eye Theater with minor additions and changes to the original effects.
