    What do you mean by version? I would say "Absolutely Not" to a new version, remake, or anything that isn't the original. MJ made Captain EO what he is and I doubt that Ne-yo, Usher, or anyone alive could come remotely close to the expectancy levels.

    As for a re-release I would like to see it come back at the AMC in DTD but certainly not in the tomorrowland theater.

    Not at at all what I meant, I meant the original film, but in the poll there are three versions of how to present the original film. I have edited the question to clear this up thanks.

    I'm not a big fan of polls you create because it never has an option that I agree with. I voted NO, but I don't want to keep HISTA either.

    Re: Poll: Should a version of Captain EO replace HISTA?

    I'm torn, I like the idea of the original film + HD update + new FX however at the same time I think that the popularity of the attraction would drop fast after the initial craze over it. I voted to keep HISTA just because I believe HISTA could be on the brink of getting replaced with an attraction the likes of which nobody has ever seen.. hopefully that is.

    I'm with aashee on this one.

    Absolutely no to bringing Eo back. Disney is about "moving forward and opening new doors", not about crawling back into the dark and musty closet.

    HISTA also really needs to just die already. I've heard of being on your last leg before, but HISTA has borrowed so many last legs from other animals that I've lost count.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    No, No, No. Never bring back Captain EO. By the end of 2010, they will probably get rid of Honey, I Shrunk The Audience, but they will replace with Mickey's PhilharMagic. As for Muppets Vision 3D, it probably won't be replaced till 2015.

    I will be at DisneyWorld on April 29, 2011-May 4, 2011. If You Are Going The Same Time Message Me

    Re: Poll: Should a version of Captain EO replace HISTA?

    I voted the yes but plus it option but it's not really what i'd like to see happen. It's just the best option on the poll you gave in my mind. (I have to vote against hista no matter what.)

    Personally I feel hista should be ripped out. But even if hista was gone I really don't want to see EO come back. I loved the show and still watch it on youtube from time to time but I don't feel it should return to the park even if additional effects were added. I don't think it would make for a relevant experience any more.

    Really I don't want to see any 3d show in that location. I can go watch a 3d movie in my own home town. Even with the addition of smoke and lazer light gimmics I still don't feel that it's a new or cutting edge enough of an experience now adays to justify keeping a 3d movie experience in the park.

    Re: Poll: Should a version of Captain EO replace HISTA?

    I wouldn't be opposed to see a kind of nod to the film, bring it back for a limited time (although I'm sure people would misconstrue this action as Disney capitalizing on MJ's death...) this summer while the memory of MJ is still fresh. Not to sound crass about it, but this tribute period of mourning isn't going to last very long and if they were going to put it in for a limited run, they'd have to have already done it for it to be effective.

    E) (*) No, and HISTA needs to go too.

    They can easily come up with something better, and a Dark Ride could go down (basement) and up (second story) to make more use of the footprint.
