Anthology movie by, and starring, Michael Jackson in his prime, combining a number of music videos from his bestselling "Bad" album with a fantasy tale of Michael's confrontation with a ruthless drug dealer known as Mr. Big (Joe Pesci).
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

Ran in Disneyland Park from 1986 until 1997 when it was replaced by another 3D show Honey, I Shrunk the Audience (1994). Following the sudden death of Michael Jackson in June 2009, Disney decided to reinstate Captain EO. The original show opened once again in February 2010 under the title "Captain EO Tribute." This is likely the only occurrence where a Disneyland attraction replaced the attraction that replaced it initially. See more »

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.
