Captain Eo, Disney, News
Captain EO Infinity not for this year!
In a recent interview with Disney Infinity vice president of production John Vignocchi and studio founder John Blackburn at GamesBeat to announce 4 new sets of the Infinity range, both talked about the possibility to do Captain EO for the game.
Blackburn: The cool one is, he’s been carrying the torch for Captain EO [a 3D film shown in the theme parks starring Michael Jackson] for a long time.
Blackburn: That one’s a challenge for all the approvals. A lot of times, when we’re working on these things, the stakeholders have rights as to whether or not we can do things and we need to make sure we’re happy with what we do. It happens that Captain EO is the most complicated one that we’ll ever run into.
Vignocchi: I’m working on it! It’s like, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, [Francis Ford] Coppola, and then the Jackson estate. We’ll make it there one day.
So Captain EO is not for this year still but it is still in the pipeline of the Disney Infinity’s team! Cross fingers for all the approvals to go through soon!
