Disney is gearing up to launch the third version of the game platform Disney Infinity, which will include Star Wars, Inside Out and more, and now we are hearing the future could feature another George Lucas property.

No, not Indiana Jones (not yet at least, although a Indy-focused Disney Infinity set is bound to happen eventually), but instead the George Lucas-produced Francis Ford Coppola-directed Disneyland 3D short film Captain EO which starred Michael Jackson and Anjelica Huston. But will Disney actually release Captain EO Disney Infinity content? Find out the details after the jump.

The 3D sci-fi short film has been a favorite of 1980’s Disney fanatics. Shown at Disney theme parks from 1986 through 1996, the short returned as a tribute following the Jackson’s death, from 2010 to 2015. And now it looks like Captain EO might live on inside the digital toy box of Disney Infinity.

The Nevada County Fair, which opens on Wednesday, will feature a ride purchased from Michael Jackson’s infamous Neverland Ranch amusement park. The ride, Balloon Samba, was previously owned by Michael Jackson, operated at the Neverland Ranch and was purchased in the fall of 2008 by California-based carnival company, Butler Amusements.

The ride is designed to look like a hot-air balloon and features hot air balloon carriages. The Balloon Samba seats 32 children in six air balloons. The ride will be part of the carnival area during Nevada County’s five-day Fair.

Butler Amusements purchased the ride, along with five others from Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch, last September. One ride is currently travelling with the Butler Amusements Oregon/ Washington carnival unit, one is operating at Coney Island, one is at the Stanislaus County Fair and the others are being refurbished at Butler’s winter quarters in Santa Nella, CA.

Balloon Samba will be open to the public at the Nevada County Fair beginning on Wednesday. This year’s Fair runs August 12 – 16.

Fresh off of three successful sold out tribute shows honoring Stevie Wonder and his magnum opus, Songs in the Key of Life, DATFunk! is returning to the main stage of the historic B.B. King Blues Club for yet another tribute to one of music’s classic legends in Forever MJ.

The night will consist of DATFunK! performing the music and songs of Michael Jackson, who is considered to be one of the most influential artists in popular culture. DATFunK is far from the average cover band and will look to serve the King of Pop justice as they span across MJ’s timeless hits ranging from his beginnings as the lead singer in the Jackson Five to his latest posthumous release, Xscape.

If you have been to one of DATFunK’s earlier shows, you should already know what to expect. If not, be prepared to answer the question: How funky is DATFunK!?

June 22, 2015 @ 8PM, Doors open at 6PM
