Goodbye, Michael Jackson

Friday, June 26th, 2009

No matter what scandals or weirdness have been attached to his name over the years, Disneyland fans will always remember Michael Jackson as bad-driving, cool-dancing, lightning-flinging Captain EO. Although Disney has been reluctant to release the Captain’s film on video (citing fears that its dancing evil aliens might be confused with disco zombies), Disneyland will be honoring Michael Jackson by bringing Captain EO back for one week, temporarily replacing Honey, I Shrunk the Audience.

The announcement, made through an anonymous e-mail to this blog, was not clear on when the showing would begin, so we encourage DisneyLies readers to contact Disney directly and pester them until they make a more formal announcement.

In the meantime, we invite you to fondly remember the good Captain by singing along with Disney band Edison Square’s song EO.
