A Michael Jackson classic will return to Disneyland after the holidays.

Disney officials say Michael Jackson’s “Captain EO” will play once again in Tomorrowland for a limited time, starting in February.

The 3-D film originally played in the theater near Space Mountain from 1986 until 1997. It included the song, “Another Part of Me,” which eventually ended up on Jackson’s super successful “Bad” album.

Since Jackson’s death earlier this year, fans have pushed to have Disney re-release "Captain EO" in the theme park. So the 17-minute film will once again take over the space now occupied by “Honey, I Shrunk the Audience.”

So far, Disney hasn’t announced how long “Captain EO” will run.
