EO & EPCOT – Together Again!
Twenty-four years ago, at the height of his entertainment career, Michael Jackson teamed up with Disney, producer George Lucas and director Francis Ford Coppola to create Captain EO, a groundbreaking 17-minute 3D film experience. The classic musical spectacular, which thrilled Epcot guests from 1986â€“1994, is scheduled to return to Epcot on July 2.
The filmâ€™s return to the Imagination pavilion will provide new audiences the opportunity to experience the original 3D production for the very first time, as well as a nostalgic look back for longtime fans wanting to see Jackson in a rare performance created for the big-screen.
Honey, I Shrunk The Audience will close temporarily for a refurbishment sometime in the next few weeks to make way for the Captain’s return. Captain EO will also return to two other Disney Parks locations this summer. It is scheduled to open at Tokyo Disneyland on June 30 and Disneyland Paris on June 12.
