Nearly 25 years ago Michael Jackson moonwalked his way into arcades everywhere in the aptly titled videogame, Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker. Now the Gloved One may be returning to (pixelated) form as part of the gaming mash-up Disney Infinity according to the website GeekTyrant.
With all eyes turned to Disney Infinity 3.0 and its introduction of characters and settings from the Star Wars universe, Disney Infinity’s John Vignocchi hinted that one of MJ’s cinematic alter ego may find a place alongside Iron Man and Darth Vader (linkage I’m not sure even Michael Jackson would have believed possible):
Captain EO was a 3D film/attraction directed by Francis Ford Coppola (somehow also forever linking Michael Jackson with The Godfather and Apocalypse Now) and co-written and co-produced by none other than Star Wars creator George Lucas. The film played exclusively at the Disneyland theme park upon release, co-starred Oscar winner Anjelica Huston, and boasted a budget of almost $1 million per minute – making it the most expensive film per second ever made (Apocalypse Now indeed).
