NEWS: Captain EO was internet rumor

According to this article, execs at Disney are contemplating if Captain EO will return to their Anaheim theme park. News that Iger was going to make the announcement on Thursday were internet rumors.

Time will tell if Captain EO will come back. We certainly hope it will. That was a great attraction!

The song "We Are Here To Change The World" can be found on Michael's Ultimate Collection. Captain EO ran at Disneyland from 1986 to 1997, then at other Disney themeparks 1997 through 1998.

UPDATE: (9/15/09) Wellll, hold the press for a moment. Appears there is more than just rumor about Captain EO coming back to Disneyland. A blog article published Sept 15th suggests there are solid plans-sort of- to bring it back, at least for a short while. The hitch? Appears Disney is skiddish about potential backlash with the controversy that surrounded Michael.

Here's a thought-- Michael's fans, who likely outnumber the others, make a BIGGER backlash?

btw, sweet note that Prince Michael, Paris and Blanket were able to see Captain EO in a private viewing.

  1. Just thought of something about Captain EO returning. Disney and Team Branca might have to come to terms with regards to Michael's likeness and what the Trust would stand to gain if it was returned.

    Just a guess.

  2. Another thought is Disney will upgrade the 3-D portion and then re-release it. They should add Ghosts to that exhibit too.
