Trivia

The song "We Are Here to Change the World" was not officially released until 2004 (18 years after the movie's debut), where it was included as part of the "Michael Jackson: The Ultimate Collection" album. That version however, is a shorter edit of the full-length song featured in the movie. See more »

Goofs

In a couple of shots behind Captain EO as the ship is under attack, there is an animated vertical rectangle-shaped black matte box behind Captain EO as to cover up for temporary animated special effects for Commander Bog. In fact, in the wide-shot that shows his crew celebrate after they defeat the attack, a solid-white animated head is visibly blurry behind Captain EO, which is intended to represent Commander Bog before the special effects were completed, thus the reason why there is an animated black matte box behind Captain EO.

It's the 21st Century and still no sign of an Official Release.
21 July 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let's look at the talent involved with this movie: Michael Jackson, Angelica Houston, Francis Ford Coppola, James Horner, Industrial Light & Magic, Dreamquest Images...the list goes on.

So one can only wonder *why* we don't have an official DVD Release of this title? It wowed audiences for years at Disney Amusement Parks around the world, yet it no longer does so. Normally when a movie is "finished" in theatres, it moves on to a Home DVD Release. Logic would suggest that this is what the future holds for "Captain Eo."

OK Disney, get off of your butt and put this puppy on DVD!!!! Forget about entertaining new generations of children, it's an opportunity for you to make more money!! ...just thought I'd speak in words that Disney could understand.
