2/22/10 UPDATED: OFFICIAL: 'Captain EO' returns February 23 to Disneyland!

This just in from Disneyland PR:

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.

So it sounds like we definitely will not be getting in the laser effects and star backdrop (a shame for those that never experienced it before) but I'm glad to see that they did go with a new 70mm print.

Expect a tweetup planned sometime soon.

2/22/10 UPDATE:
I hope you have warm clothes and nothing to do tonight or tomorrow morning. Our source has told us that they will begin allowing people to line up for Captain EO TONIGHT at midnight. Head to the Esplenade in front of the main entrance to the park to begin lining up. AND, if you are a hotel guest at the Disney hotels, you will get in to see an early showing at 8:00 AM.
