30 Days and 30 Blogs: Day 12
…yeah, you know me!!!
I’m about to head off to the Anaheim Conventioon Center to attend the 3rd day of the D23 Expo. For those who don’t know, it’s kind of like a Comic Con but for Disney. (I may have mentioned that on the show) I haven’t been to the first two days of the expo, but I hear that Johnny Depp showed up in full Jack Sparrow attire (and character) to announce that 2011 will see a new Pirates of the Caribbean move and the Muppets showed up to announce a new movie. In addition people like Tim Burton, Robin Williams, Nicholas Cage, John Travolta…and even Miley Cirus (oh yes…Miley Cirus…you know you’re excited) have already dropped by.
But there is one thing I’m most looking forward to and it’s not a famous person, it’s not some Disney legend from the past signing auto graphs…it’s the rumor that today they are going to announce a limited return for the Disney 3D film, Captain EO. If you don’t know what Catain EO is, check out one of my recent Kingdom Comedy Videos:
I think I mentioned this on the July 4th episode of TANcast, but I loved this movie as a kid. It’s a shame that it took MJ’s death to get the fan desire to see this movie back in Disneyland to reach high enough levels for Disney to take it seriously. But I really, really, REALLY want them to bring it back. The movie that’s in the theater now is super lame. Bob Iger (big shot at Disney) announced that there were “No current plans” to bring t back but that they were “looking at” the possibility.
I hope that was just to throw us off the scent…
C’mon, man…bring back the Captain!!! (I’m sorry…ths blog would be longer, but I have to get over to the expo while the gettin’s good)
