Captain EO is back!

When I was a young buck, Captain EO was one of my favorite attractions at Disneyland. In fact, when I got the news of the King of Pop's passing, the first thing I did was hit up YouTube and watch the classic film (sans-3d of course, but it was still great).

Looks like Disneyland realized what's up and decided to bring Captian EO back. More, via BB:

“Since we first announced the return of “Captain EO” on the Disney Parks Blog, there has been an incredible response from fans, and we’ve received many enthusiastic emails and phone calls asking exactly when the classic “Captain EO” attraction featuring Michael Jackson will reopen.
Today, we are excited to give you an update on the Captain’s return!
On Tuesday, February 23, as a tribute to the magic, music and messages of “Captain EO,” the 3-D musical adventure is returning to the Tomorrowland theater in which it debuted. 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.”
