I think it had about 99.9% to do with MJ's death.
Perhaps his death provided good timing for Disney to make the change. I miss HISTA, though.
I just wonder what they are going to put into the theater once Captain EO ends it's run...

They said at the start that this was a placeholder while they work on the next movie (possibly different attraction but still a 3D movie based one).

I'm hoping for something original and not movie-based for a change :roll:

Given that Nemo went into the Living Seas, the Lion King into the Land, Mission to Mars movie into Mission: Space, and the Three Caballeros into Mexico, the odds are more likely that whatever does go into the Imaginations 3D Theatre will probably be movie related...

Wait... what? Mission to Mars was partially inspired by the old disney attraction and the only tie to the movie was that they have Gary Sinise in them. :D

TAKE IT BACK, they're already polluting DAK with that crap, it'd best not infiltrate Epcot. :shock: I'd just rather see EO remain over some Avatar junk.

Lets hope they stop doing show attractions (as in 3D movies vs rides) they are almost universally short lived in interest.

Is there any word on how long Captain EO will be there?

I like having a few shows to break up the day of line hopping...plus having an indoor place in the summer to catch some A/C and take a load off the old dogs for a while is always welcome! :D

I agree with Amy about having something original rather than something with a movie tie-in, but unfortunately, I don't see that happening.

The one thing I hate about the show areas is that usually the waiting area is devoid of seating (short of sitting on the ground) so if you want to rest your feet you may have to wait 20 mins on them to sit for a show.

But at least waiting 20 minutes for a 20 minute break on your keister is better than waiting 20 minutes for a 2 minute break for an attraction.
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

I Wonder if it will be Cars related since Cars 2 just came out. I was not a big EO fan.
