Disney World Announces New Attraction: The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow

The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow

Shiver me friggn timbers!!

Big news Landlubbers EVERYONE!

The most magical place on Earth has just announced a brand-new attraction, The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow, is coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios THIS FALL!

The Magic Kingdom already has the Pirates of the Caribbean ride that inspired the four films. Now, they’re building a new attraction inspired by the movies! (It’s a little weird.)

What exactly is The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow?

According to Jason Roberts (the guy with the coolest job in the world), show producer for Walt Disney Imagineering:

“This is going to be an immersive experience. We’ll really delve into the story of Captain Jack Sparrow and put our guests in the middle of it all in new and exciting ways. Story is always the most important thing for us at Walt Disney Imagineering, but we’re always looking at new ways to tell the story that our guests have never seen before. In this attraction, we’ll let you walk in the footsteps of Jack Sparrow It’s not ‘the making of,’ not ‘behind the scenes’ … it is really a first-person experience. We worked with the archives as well as the filmmakers while they were shooting the last movie. And as a fan, I just loved sitting through those films again and again, going through all the details and leveraging them for this new experience. It’s really been a blast.”

We’re just not sure what he means by “new and exciting ways.”

Is this going to be a show? Is it going to be a ride?

We’ll have to wait for more details to come out.

For now, all we can say with almost 100% certainty is this: it will be AWESOME!!
