I say before adding any Jack Sparrow AA figure they should go back and change the pirates chasing the women with food back to its original form. Once done then they can think about adding Jack Sparrow. Of course being the male chauvinistic pig that I am I would like to see an AA of Miss Swan added to the ride. Add her to the Auction line up next to the Red Head
Tell that to Johnny Depp please. We'll let you tell him. I'm sure not gonna tell the star of the most profitable Disney movie franchise in 15 years that his animatronic can't be among the (120 is it?) maurading Pirates...
Tell that to all the little kids who go "OH BOY, Pirates of the Caribbean" and go on it for the first time (meaning every generation from now on, as long as DVD and internet and Netfliks is a part of modern life). They expect Johnny Depp to be there.
You'll get used to it... They're not gutting the ride and doing an all new version. Eventually you'll forget how it ever got along without the Johnny Depp element.
