On Tuesday, February 23, as a tribute to the magic, music and messages of “Captain EO,” the 3-D musical adventure featuring Michael Jackson is returning to the Tomorrowland theater in which it debuted for a limited engagement. Disney has not announced how long the show will run for and what will replace it when its run is complete. 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.

The film’s executive producer was George Lucas. The movie tells the story of Captain EO and the ragtag crew of his spaceship on a mission to deliver a gift to a wicked alien leader, the Witch Queen, on her home world of rotting, twisted metal and steaming vents. Captain EO’s alien crew consists of his small flying sidekick Fuzzball, the double-headed navigator and pilot Idey and Ody, robotic security officer Major Domo, a small robot Minor Domo ), and the clumsy elephant-like shipmate Hooter who always manages to upset the crew’s missions.
