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.
