Captain Eo and his rugged crew set out on a mission to deliver a special gift to a wicked queen who lives on a dark, desolate world. Getting there is half the fun, especially when the good captain starts boogying and the special effects start flying. Written by

The design of the Supreme Leader was based on that of a spider. Anjelica Huston accepted the role without realizing she'd have to be suspended from cables for most of the shoot. The Supreme Leader design would years later serve as the primary inspiration for the design of the Borg Queen (who also was suspended in midair by cables) from Star Trek: First Contact (1996) and Star Trek: Voyager (1995).

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.

Captain EO was the greatest attraction I'd seen in my life up to that time. As a matter of fact, it's still the greatest.
I love theme parks and I've seen a lot of attractions. Spiderman at Universal comes close.
I was in my twenties when EO was released and the film made me feel like a big kid. I wasn't too concerned about the plot and the acting as much as the effects, music and dancing. I got everything I bargained for and then some. I was sad to see it go. If they ever brought it back, I'd be first in line to see it!
All I know is it was an attraction that I could feel. Captain EO was a trend setter. It ran as a 3D attraction, but it was more like a 4D. There was smoke and lasers to go with the 3D effects. I experienced Captain EO at least 20 times and every single time, there was roaring applause at the end.
