Michael Jackson's Disney Theme Park Ride Will Be Popular Again
A few months ago, Michael Jackson—in movie form only—decided to make one last appearance at Disneyland. Apparently his retro performance must have received rave reviews too, because officials at Disney are pretty pleased with the revival of the Captain EO 3D movie, and they are now bringing it to other parks in the Disney universe.
Despite debuting in 1986, the film is set to reopen at Epcot within Walt Disney World on July 2. Epcot remains Disney's outdated vision of the future, so the somewhat vintage film should fit right in. It’s likely a limited time engagement, so if you’re interested you probably should start looking at flights down to Florida now; you'll be competing with those heading down the June opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter too.
If you’re overseas you’ll still get the chance to relive MJ’s glory days, as the film is also coming to both Disneyland Paris and Tokyo Disneyland. The folks in France will be enjoying the attraction beginning on June 12, and those in Japan will be swarming the limited time merchandise beginning on July 1. Basically the film shows the journey of a group of space-people using the power of light, music, and dance to turn a boring planet into a world filled with happiness.
It’s a timeless theme and a story that the whole world can get behind, right?
