(Several of us at the Mr. Lincoln premiere yesterday suspected that we'd get this news then, but company reps told us that there would be no further announcements yesterday.)Tweet
I am going to Disneyland this year instead of WDW!
Bad move, Disney execs. Listening to his music is one thing. Giving him a feature spot in a family-oriented theme park is on an entirely different level.
Stop being cheap, Disney. If you want to replace an old attraction, develop something new with one of the more recent Disney products. Leave Michael and his "Jesus Juice" out of the parks.
I'm also all for forgiveness if someone makes a mistake and learns their lesson from it. Michael did not. From all accounts he continued to exhibit improper behavior towards adolescent boys even after the first civil lawsuit and sealed settlement. If he were just the guy down the street instead of the "King of Pop" he probably would be Killer's main squeeze in Cellblock C at San Quentin prison.
I'm disgusted with Disney management for making such a near-sighted decision. They might as well rename the show Captain EO sponsored by NAMBLA.
