The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow Attraction Coming Fall 2012

    Disney Parks Blog has officially confirmed that a new attraction titled "The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow" featuring everyone's favorite pirate will debut this fall in Disney's Hollywood Studios. Here is the information from their post:

Details are still emerging, but the attraction will give guests a chance to become immersed in the world of the four "Pirates of the Caribbean" films, and an opening date will be announced later this year.

According to Jason Roberts, 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 that 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' 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."

   This new attraction will replace "Journey into Narnia" at Disney's Hollywood Studios this fall. And although I enjoyed the Narnia walk-through I am extremely excited about this new experience. I am a HUGE Jack Sparrow fan and look forward to anything Disney has to offer concerning this character. Let me know what you think about this news in the comments sections below and be sure and stay tuned for updates on this and other Disney projects.

Yo-ho, yo-ho...
