eoIt’s a relic from a time when Michael Jackson was trusted to entertain children, and now it looks like Captain EO is about to ride back to the big screen on the coattails of the documentary This Is It.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the short musical film produced by George Lucas and directed by Francis Ford Coppola will soon play again at Disneyland, where it ran in glorious 3-D from 1986-94. The unofficial Disney Blog reports that the park showed the space opera recently to Jackson family members — including the megastar’s children, who had never seen it.

After EO left Disneyland, it was replaced by another 3-D experience: Honey, I Shrunk the Audience.
