Big Name, Big Screen 3-D
Disney depth due
Bill Shepard

Just when it appeared that big screen commercial 3-D was gasping its final breaths, word arrives that the biggest 3-D production yet is in the works.

Walt Disney Pictures has announced that rock superstar Michael Jackson will appear in a unique 3-D narrative film presentation, "Captain Eo", which will be shown in the Disney theme parks in Florida and California. "Captain Eo" surely represents the biggest 3-D investment ever in talent and production values. The executive producer is George Lucas, one of the most famous names in Hollywood today, after "Star Wars" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark". The film"s director is another Tinsel Town giant, Francis Ford Coppola, famous for "The Godfather" and "Apocalypse Now". The 12-minute musical space fantasy has original songs written, produced, and sung by Jackson.

Lucas says, "It has lots of drama, singing and dancing, lots of characters, and great space battles. Ships will come right out over the audience and lasers will shoot by everyone"s head."
