Back to Change the World: Captain Eo Starts Tomorrow

Long before Avatar, audiences were thrilling to the 3D adventures of blue aliens and their spacefaring humanoid friends in Captain Eo. The Michael Jackson event movie is coming back for a nostalgia-fueled limited run at Disneyland's Tomorrowland theater starting, uh, tomorrow. From the Disney Parks Blog, "While it's not possible to replicate some special effects elements from the original presentation, it will boast a new 70mm print of the film, and it will sound better than ever thanks to acoustic enhancements made to the theater since the film last played there in 1997." Hopefully the in-theater lasers and smoke effects will make an appearance (breathe it and weep, Cameron), but even if it's just the movie, it's reason enough to rejoice. [DisneyParks]

    I'm confused - who's the black guy on screen doing all the singing and dancing? I don't recognize him.

    Translation> The dry ice machine is broken and due to the current economy we don't have the money to fix it.
