In Loving Memory of Michael Jackson:Captain EO, In Its Entirety

The King of Pop is dead. Long live the King of Pop! As I’m too distressed to work, as I’m sure you are too, I thought we could celebrate Michael together with something from his prime: 3-D Disney parks cinematic odyssey Captain EO — which, many tend to forget, was one of Francis Ford Coppola’s lesser-heralded works. That’s Angelica Huston as the licorice-tangled Supreme Leader ordering EO and his crew to be turned into trash cans, before Michael saves the day by singing “We Are Here To Change The World” and shooting purple lasers out of his wrists.Captain EO premiered at EPCOT September 12, 1986 and had its last public showing at Disneyland Park Paris on August 17, 1998. Goodbye, Michael. There will never be another you. I wish it all had a happier ending.
