Cinemagique: Captain EO

At A Glance

3-d SciFi film featuring Michael Jackson, with a distinct Star Wars theme.

Unsuitable for toddlers, or those with very sensitive hearing.


Captain EO at Cinemagique was a 3-d style film, which lasted for around 20 minutes and starred Michael Jackson as Captain EO, and Angelica Huston as the "Supreme Leader", along with a collection of furry animals playing the 'crew'.

The story behind the film had Captain EO and his crew doing battle with an enemy space craft. During the battle EO's ship was damaged and forced to crash land on an unknown planet, leaving the crew to deal with a host of villains.

The film's 3-d effects were achieved through the use of special 3-d glasses, similar to those used at Honey I Shrunk the Audience, and were enhanced by an excellent surround sound system and special lighting effects. (The 3-d glasses could be easily fitted over the top of existing glasses if worn).

Unusually for the French park, the dialogue was in English only with no attempt to dup it into other languages.

Overall it was little more than an extended Michael Jackson music video, in a similar vein to "Thriller", although in 3-d with a differing themed story, and as such wasn't really worth bothering with for anyone other than commited Michael Jackson fans.
