Where would you put Jack Sparrow?
If they do end up putting in a Jack Sparrow animatronic in Pirates, where would you place it? I think the best spot would be in the jail cell, with him leaning against the wall with his hat tipped down over his face (that way it wouldn't have to look exactly like Johnny Depp). You could hear Jack's voice saying "You can keep doing that forever, the dog is never going to move."
What do you think?
Pirates! replaces Fantasmic!
I would redo Fantasmic! as Pirates! and make Sparrow a live character in the biggest, splashiest and most action packed Pirate vs. ghost stunt show on the river. I'd have the island rethemed pirate style and have it fight the Columbia dressed as the Black Pearl (big broadsides, gun battles, sword fighting, do blacklight on skeleton AAs, mist screen tranmsformations, and costumes as fighting pirates coming out of the water, lots of fire efx, real cool stuff..Big exploding tresure scene, love song on the ship with an orlando bloom character.. the coin projected on the mist screens, etc. Black pearl transforms back into a living ship, happy ending, etc. Make it a real wow.
