Captain EO

Captain EO is a 3-D film
starring Michael Jackson and
that was shown at Disney theme parks
in the 1980s and 1990s. The attraction will temporarily return to Disneyland in February 2010 for a limited engagement, replacing the Honey, I Shrunk the Audience! 3-D attraction.
The film's executive producer was George Lucas. The film was choreographed by Jeffrey Hornaday, photography by Peter Anderson, produced by Rusty Lemorande, and written by Lemorande, Lucas and Coppola. Lemorande also initially designed and created two of the creatures, and was an uncredited editor of the film. The score was written by James Horner, and featured two songs ("We Are Here to Change the World" and "Another Part of Me") by Michael Jackson. The Witch Queen was played by Anjelica Huston. Cinematographer Vittorio Storaro acted as visual consultant but was, in fact, the director of photography. Union requirements prevented him from receiving that credit. Captain Eo is regarded as the first '4-D' film (4-D being the name given to a 3-D film which incorporates in-theater effects (such as lasers, smoke, etc.) frame synced to the film narrative). This innovation was suggested by producer-writer Lemorande who is, therefore, sometimes referred to as "The Father of 4-D".
