    Johnny Depp in POTC

    Well folks, in an article in today's USA Today covering the anniversary Michael Eisner "Hinted" that Johnny Depp's AA is going into POTC.
    What does everybody think of this development??

    Sorry, his Audio Animatronic figure.

    I have mixed feelings

    JD would not ruin the POTC but it really would not add much either. I know that people who have not ridden the ride before the movie wonder how the ride could come up with Johnny Depp. But I think that the ride would not really be improved by one AA that looks like JD.

    Ew! I would hate to see an Audio Anamatronic of Jonny Depp on POTC!!!!

    Oh wow...I think that would totally take you out of the ride, wouldn't it?

    Like, all these cool figures and scenes that have been there for ages and then you turn the corner and BOOM..."Uhhhh...honey? That pirate looks awfully familiar..."

    Changing POTC again? I still want the pre "politically correct" version back. You remember that version, the one Walt worked on? I know, I know.....Disneyland will never be finished. But lets fix the problems before we start working on the attractions that are already working. That's just my opinion.
    As nice as the other parks are, we must always remember that it all began at Disneyland. Disneyland should be the crown jewel in the Disney crown.

    I agree. The first version was better. Who said that Pirates had to be gentlemen? The new verson is a just silly bow to PC.

    come now there are some deffinate upgrades with the second edition you just want the chasing the ladies back and so do I

    anywho last I heard Depp was going into WDW's Pirates not DL's

    good thing too WDW's NEEDS it DL's doesn't

    Disneyland's pirates is the first one and should keep the feel of it intact

    if we wanna talk about Jim Hill's increadibly expensive rerouting Pirates suggestion I'm all for that because it brings something new and keeps something old (youknow that changing routes at night plan were the ride is different but only at night)

    I'm also good for upgrading the origional pirates even more

    but no Depp

    Regarding the Mansion:

    "Eddie Murphy? Hi, this is Michael Eisner, chairman of the Walt Disney company..."

    Regarding Pirates:

    Actually I threw out the idea that maybe he'd be kind of like a hidden Mickey, he could appear in one or two scenes, but you'd only see him by looking back or else he could disappear / re appear. He was "hiding" in the original movie, so maybe they could incorporate it with "if you see Johnny, don't blow his cover" like how Indy says "don't look into the eye."

    The tourists could cause him to get captured in the jail at the end of the ride.

    Let's face it, it could add a better "story" to the scenes that develop before you.

    One of the singing busts. Replete with trademark Murphy "heeh! heeh! heeh!" laugh.
    My fondest memory of Walt Disney was the day Disneyland opened....I was standing next to him - I was 12 years old - he was looking at the gate where people were coming through, he had his hands behind his back, he had a grin from ear to ear, but you could see the lump in his throat and the tear coming down his cheek because his dream had been realized. -- Mouseketeer Sharon Baird, "Mouseke-Memories", Walt Disney Treasures: The Mickey Mouse Club

    I meant Johnny Depp would be the hidden Mickey, not Eddie...

    I dont think even Eddie Murphy wants to look back and remember that movie.

    I agree! Thanks for bringing that up! I thought I was the only one that thought "why don't they concentrate on daily maintenance and the things that need fixing, and stop messing with the classics?"!

    If I were Eddie Murphy, I wouldn't want to look back and remember ANY of the movies he's worked on.
