Many things have been written about Michael Jackson lately, so I thought it was appropriate to write about Michael's contribution to Disney World - Captain EO.
Captain EO, although no longer an active attraction( ending July 6 1994) , it was based in Epcot at the theater next to Journey Into Imagination. It debuted on September 12th 1986 in Epcot. This attraction also was duplicated and shown in 3 other Disney parks including: Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris. The Epcot and Disneyland versions opened just 6 days apart.
This was a 17 minute film that was part Sci-fi, part music video, and part special effects prototype with over 150 special effects including 3-D effects worked into the film.
The film included some of the biggest people in Hollywood at the time. George Lucas was the Executive Producer and Francis Ford Coppola was the Director. In addition to Michael, it also starred Academy Award winning actress Anjelica Huston as the Supreme Leader.
Thanks to the http://www.captaineo.com/ website for some of the movie facts.
Here is the entire movie shown in two parts, due to Youtube clip size.
