‘Captain EO’ making its return to Tokyo Disneyland

in Disney, Movies, Theme Parks

Just two months after the Captain EO Tribute opened at Disneyland in February 2010, it has been announced that the 3D Michael Jackson film will also be returning to Tokyo Disneyland.

The attraction will take over for MicroAdventure! (Tokyo Disneyland’s version of “Honey, I Shrunk The Audience”) and will premiere on July 1, 2010, running for one year through June 30, 2011.

Previously, Tokyo Disneyland featured Captain EO from March 20, 1987 through September 1, 1996.

MicroAdventure! will close on May 10, 2010 to make way for the new/old film.

There is still no indication that Captain EO will return to Epcot at Walt Disney World or to Disneyland Paris, both of which previously displayed the film during its initial run. It has been said that Captain EO will also return to Disneyland Paris in July, though not yet officially announced by Disney.
