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).

Captain Eo is definitely one of those 3-d movies that are hard to forget. While only about 17 minutes long, it was long enough to show just how powerful music can be. It had everything from catchy tunes to devilish villains. While some say the story was not that strong, the movie's SFX certainly made up for anything it was lacking in plot. Personally, I thought that Michael Jackson and Anjelica Houston both gave good performances. Unfortunately, it seems as if this will be another former Disney attraction that will inevitably fall through the cracks and be forgotten once and for all.
