March 20, 1987 – The 3-D Film Attraction Captain EO Debuts at Tokyo Disneyland
“いいか みんな 今度こそは きちんとキメるぞ でなきゃ終わりだ”
On March 20, 1987, the 3-d film attraction opened in Tokyo Disneyland’s Tomorrowland area. It was the same film shown at Walt Disney World’s Epcot beginning in 1986, with added Japanese subtitles. The attraction closed on September 1, 1996, lasting a little over nine years, longer than Walt Disney World, but shorter than Disneyland, which ran for 11 years. After Michael Jackson passed away in 2009, Tokyo Disneyland brought the film back for a limited time engagement, replacing the MicroAdventure attraction.
