Captain EO is back! February 23!!

So long, bad times.......Hello, good times!

That’s right kids.  The rumors were all true.  While it was originally thought that Captain EO would return for the special Halloween celebration Disneyland had in 2009, there simply wasn’t enough time to do it up right.  According to the Disney Parks Blog the official date for it’s return is this Tuesday February 23!!!  Also, according to the blog site, there will be a special Captain EO announcement on the Disneyland Twitter account next week.  So if you have Twitter, follow them to see what it is!

I was lucky enough to be in the first audience to see the movie since 1997 last week when they were doing some special cast member testing.  It sounds great and was so fun to watch in 3D again.  I think this will be a huge success due to fans who remember it from their younger days and also for the new generation who have never seen it before.  Also, be ready for a few new surprises that didn’t exist in the original run. :-)

Anyone going opening day??  Maybe we can have a good old fashion IRL (In Real Life) meetup!

    Michael wasn’t allowed to be different.

    His innocence, too complex for most people to understand, exposed him to liars, thieves, betrayers and opportunists – many of whom showed their true colours after his death.

    After everything, it isn’t the pyrotechnics we remember, it’s not the ‘short films’, the budgets, the film, the clothes, the shows – or even the controversy.

    It’s him we remember. Just him. That heart, that smile, and that love.

    But his death, unfair and cruel as it was – the end result of over 15 years of being treated like an animal by the media and a corrupt police department headed by Tom Sneddon – may just be the catalyst that enables us to make the leap we so desperately need to make.

    And for the generations to come who will never know what we had, maybe the music and Captain E0 is as close as they will get to knowing the essence of who Michael was.

    Michael did change the world – because he changed us.
