Captain EOMichael Jackson’s 1986 sci-fi musical Captain EO, a 3-D 17-minute epic that was a staple at Disneyland until 1994, is reopening at the theme park this month as expected — and tomorrow.

It will run indefinitely, according to an AP article quoting an official Disney blog.

The story says the park will show a 70mm print of the film, but that some special effects would be omitted. The reporter  seems to speculate that these might be the lasers and smoke that accompanied the original presentation.

Captain EO was produced by George Lucas and directed by Francis Ford Coppola, with music by James Horner and effects by Disney Imagineers. It now replaces Honey, I Shrunk the Audience in Tomorrowland’s Kodak Theater, which hosted the movie during its first release, when it was known as the Magic Eye Theater.
