The day: Sept. 8,1986
The man: Captain EO
His mission: to change the world
Twenty-five years ago, at the height of his career, Michael Jackson collaborated with "Star Wars" Producer George Lucas and "The Godfather" Director Francis Ford Coppola on a 3D space epic. Michael Jackson played the leader of an intergalactic brigade, who is captured after crash landing on a strange planet and forced to confront an evil spider-like queen(played by Anjelica Huston). Captain EO uses the power of music to subdue the queen's subjects and change their world for the better.
Michael Jackson contributed two songs for the feature, "We Are Here to Change the World" and "Another Part of Me." The film enjoyed an 11-year run in Tomorrowland, closing in 1997 to make way for "Honey, I Shrunk the Audience."
