Just a quick suggest for the Estate:
CAPTAIN EO can be easily restored from original films and sold in BluRay format. In addition, it can be broadcasted on Disney+ platform (even as "special content" to be purchased, like the lastest Mulan movie [but at lower price, of course]).

What do you think? Disney/Estate has all original sources and money to easily produce it. :innocent:

Disney don'tt want the MJ episode from Simpsons on Disney+ because of LN...

So no chance they will release it on Blu-Ray or put it on Disney+


So sad.

Re: project: CAPTAIN EO in BluRay / HD Digital Release

Lovely idea, and would be amazing; but I can't see Disney wanting to associate themselves closely with Michael right now sadly :(

However the decision to not have the Simpsons episode on Disney+ has nothing to do with Disney. That's down to the Simpsons producer James L Brooks want to remove it from all future releases.

If Disney wanted to add anything to their streaming service, I'd love to see the 1980 Disneyland 25th Anniversary special remastered. Then we'd get Michael's amazing rendition of When You Wish Upon A Start / Ease On Down The Road in 4K/High res!

Re: project: CAPTAIN EO in BluRay / HD Digital Release

Putting Captain EO on Blu-Ray is sort of a waste, in my opinion. The entire film's around 20 minutes; even with behind-the-scenes features, that's not worth the standard price of a Blu-Ray. I'd rather the Estate include it on an eventual Blu-Ray set of Michael's short films (alongside the full version of Ghosts), or just put it online.

But even so, I highly doubt Disney is keen to associate with Michael right now. Maybe in the future.

I agree & if they're still feeling that way about that bs then they should give the estate whatever mj material they have. Why let it go to waste like them. I remember before YouTube...i had never been to Disneyland so all i saw was posters of captain eo & i was so excited to see it & i can't even remember the 1st time i saw it but i know the quality it's very unwatchable now compared to some out there. But even tho it was 20 something years old at the time was like a world premiere for me. If i aint seen it, it's new to me

Disney owns Captain EO but they don't own Michael Jackson. if disney don't want it anymore they can just give to the MJ estate. they already got sue one time for using EO without asking MJ estate.

if people don't want michael on their platform anymore give to the estate even though the estate is crappy.

I would love this. The film was already in brilliant quality/remastered for the tribute after 2009.
Hope it happens as a gift set with miniature space ship, making of, new making of, rough cut, artworks,...

Re: project: CAPTAIN EO in BluRay / HD Digital Release

I am still hoping for them to releae a bluray with MJs short films. Just even call it "MJ - King of Short Films.

Including restored versions of...

-Thriller
-Captain EO
-Ghosts
-BAD
-Smooth Criminal
-Black or White
-Remember the Time

And then some Behind the Scenes footage. Maybe some live footage from film. A vew songs since they wont / cant give us a full show from film reels.
I dont know. This is just me dreaming.

(Also, I do wish they would restore ALL of MJs short films, but I could work with this release for a few years.)

This section is called Michael Jackson News And Discussion so it doesn't have to be news. The thread title could be better though.

So sad.

That’s why I boycotted both “The Simpsons” and Disney+, they can screw themselves for all I care. They screw themselves to hell!:angry:

I really dont care for a release of Captain EO either but would love for the short films beeing remastered and released on bluray.
The BAD short film clip on BAD25 shows how good it can look,its amazing there.

Re: project: CAPTAIN EO in BluRay / HD Digital Release

If we ever get captain eo it should be with a short films release. they can like do what they did back in 2010 i think with putting all the short films on dvd which was kind of a fail because the short films wasn't HQ.

if they don't it. at least the fans can.

Dream on. We haven’t had a proper release of anything since Xscape. LN or not this is way too long on a new release. We have been patiently waiting long enough. Do something already...

I mean if Disney had some cahonas they would release it on Disney +. Simpsons don't speak for all.

Like Always said - a stand-alone EO release on Blu-Ray doesn't make sense. - Even with a lot of extra materiale.

If they release Thriller 4K and Ghosts - they could add it as a bonus.

Or if they ever release his musicvideos in HQ they can add it there. - or simply put it on thier official MJ youtube account.

I like that idea. many fans want thriller and ghosts together. if they can't give it to us on blu- ray they can at least put it on their youtube channel. though they can make more money on by putting on blu-ray first.

I think it would be a good idea to start a petition for captain eo and the simpsons episode if enough people sign it’ll show Disney people want it in the service.

I’m not sure the estate is targeting anyone. In order to do that you have to release something. I’m being sarcastic by the way🤣
