This is no longer a rumor. It has been official announced by the Disney Company that "Captain EO" shall be returning to Epcot. The 17-minute 3D film featuring the "King of Pop", Michael Jackson is scheduled to begin showing at Epcot on July 2nd. For those of you who never saw "Captain EO" it ran from 1986-94 where currently "Honey, I Shrunk the Audience" is being shown. It was a space-age fantasy style musical.
It returned to Disneyland back in February of this year and is scheduled to also open in Tokyo Disneyland on June 30 and Disneyland Paris on June 12.
I'm looking forward to seeing this. I had passed this attraction on both visits that I had made to Walt Disney World prior to the closing of the show. It will be interesting to see a film made back when Michael Jackson was on top and was still considered to be cool, before all of his sad scandals.
