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

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.

The attraction guaranteed to confuse 7 year olds...
I'll admit that the ONLY time I ever went on "Captain EO" I was 7 years old, almost 8, and nearly in second grade. I was convinced tha Michael Jackson was a girl! (I kept saying it too!)
"Captain EO" is actually a treat, with cool special FX and a fun cast. The adventurers are fun, and Micael Jackson gives a good performances, with "Boy-girl" jokes aside. As matter of fact, I became a Michael Jackson fan (although I watched MTV when I as in pre-school, and knew his music well, but always thought he was a girl-Hey, I was a kid. Kids make mistakes.)
Tragically, this is one of those 80s marvels that children today will never see, because they made way for bigger Special Effects (although I LOVE Disney World dearly) that spoil the children. Bring back the 80 gems, kids WILL appreicate it.
Oh, and by the way,the Disney TV Movie "I-Man" probably would have been a cool attraction too, even though I'm sure I never saw it. Just a thought.
