An Intergalactic Movie Adventure

Dazzling 3D graphics, in-theater special effects and booming digital music and sound take you to the farthest reaches of the galaxy.

Get ready for a bumpy ride as Captain EO and his ragtag space crew crash-land on the surface of an alien planet, where they are to bestow an important gift to the Supreme Leader. But the gift, though well intentioned, is not well received. Leave it to Captain EO to draw on some slick moves—and slick tunes, including “We Are Here to Change the World” and “Another Part of Me”—to deliver the message and triumph over the evil forces of darkness.

This 17-minute interactive film stars pop-music superstar Michael Jackson as Captain EO on his quest to change the world. With show-stopping musical numbers written by Michael Jackson, and stunning effects orchestrated by executive producer George Lucas and director Francis Ford Coppola, Captain EO is a sight and sound spectacular with an enduring message.

A Tribute
Journey back to 1986 and relive the magic of Captain EO in all its glory—now with an added preshow behind-the-scenes featurette. Even today, you’ll have to resist the urge to reach out and pet Fuzzball, the cute little winged space monkey, as he flies towards you! The beloved space fantasy also features a restored film print, enhanced sound and other surprises as you watch EO and his comedic cohorts bring color and beauty to the world through music.

EO 2.0: A Classic Revamped

Executive producer George Lucas and director Francis Ford Coppola changed the world when they released Captain EO in 1986. A revolutionary filming process using twin 70mm polarizing projectors and “4D” in-theater effects made it the most expensive film per minute ever produced at the time, costing an estimated $30 million and clocking in at 17 minutes.

Screening in the same Tomorrowland theater in which it debuted, Captain EO now welcomes a new generation of Guests on a journey to the stars.
