Michael Jackson's 3-D film Captain EO is returning to Disneyland.

The park says it will show the 1986 musical - starring the late King of Pop and directed by Francis Ford Coppola - starting on Tuesday and running indefinitely.

On the Disney Parks blog, Disney executive Heather Hust Rivera says the park will show a 70mm print of the 17-minute movie in the Tomorrowland theatre, with enhanced sound.

However, Rivera said the showing would not feature some special effects from the original presentation.

The original presentation included lasers and smoke.

Jackson, who died last year, plays the role of a spaceship captain who uses love and music to fight a wicked witch queen played by Anjelica Huston.

The original ran at Disneyland from 1986 to 1997.

The new showing replaces the 3-D show Honey, I Shrunk The Audience.
