It doesn't look that bad to me.

The quality of the movies isn't TERRIBLE... I have the Haunted Mansion disc on preorder. It's supposed to be REALLY good. I'll post screen shots after I get/watch it...

I decided to go with an exclusive Captain EO DVD and I'm not at all disappointed. I got it off of eBay, paid about $25 with shipping.

It has the movie in both regular and widescreen, plus the making of and the video of "another part of me."

The quality is quite good, better than I expected.

Hi all...

Just in case anyone is interested, there are two other versions of Captain EO out there on video, but you'll have to watch eBay to find them, I think. That's where I found my copies, three years ago.

The first is a VideoCD version released by Disney in Japan.... well, in Japan or in Europe. Since I can't seem to find my copy, suddenly, I can't double-check before I post. When I find it, I'll let you know if you're interested.

The second is a VHS videotape that was produced by Disney and was given as a promotional gift to big mucky-mucks when the Attraction first premiered at Disneyland. The videotape also includes a making-of, and interviews with some of the stars.

Both of these are high-quality studio transfers from the original film masters (one of the two, of course... neither of these is a 3-D version, which is good, in terms of quality), but obviously, the quality of the VideoCD is limited by that format's capacity.

HI All - Just wanted to let you know that MTV aired the Captain EO video several years ago, when they did their all day tribute to Michael Jackson. I taped it....lucky for me. I have this plus hundreds of other things the Disney Channel aired but will probably never put on VHS or DVD.

Is it the entire movie on You Tube? Is there a Captain EO DVD/video out there anywhere? There are entire memories of EPCOT and Disney World I would love to bring back into my life. But, thanks for the information about You Tube. :mickey:

Watching that video kind of saddened me because Michael was in another league back then as an entertainer. It's sad to see him known for something else now.
