    Question Adding Will and Elizabeth to PoTC...

    I seem to remember that there was a rumor that Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann would be added to the PoTC attraction to coincide with the release of Pirates of Caribbean: At World's End in summer 2007. Is there any truth to this? I can't remember hearing anything about this recently...

    Re: Adding Will and Elizabeth to PoTC...

    Thanks! Sorry, I didn't mean to double post. Is there an exact date when this will happen? (Being lazy today, didn't feel like reading that entire thread back from June.)

    Should coincide with the film's World Premiere (no date or location confirmed at this writing) in May.

    That is what I figured. I'm asking because the general refurbishment schedule through May for DL is now out and there is no mention of a ride closure for PoTC.

    I am ok with the current additions, not too thrilled these 2 new AAs are bing added. Where will they fit in exactly?

    Re: Adding Will and Elizabeth to PoTC...

    I don't like any of the POTC movie stuff in the ride at all. It was bad enough that they changed stuff to make it more PC. Plus, I wonder the same thing as jmuboy - where will they fit in?

    Also, are they doing the same thing to the POTC ride at WDW?

    A shame. Using these characters is turning a successful first-person guest experience into a third-person passive viewing experience by empasizing their tacked-on "story." At best the three movie characters should be confined to one cameo in a prison cell or something that doesn't disrupt the flow of the traditional Pirates experience. Too late now, I guess.

    Sadly, it's the E-Ticket version of what was done to Swiss Family Treehouse.

    Captain Jack Sparrow and Davy Jones (Even though he is projected onto mist) looks real. Where would Elizabeth Swan go?

    With the pigs?

    I personally think Sparrow & Jones & Barbossa characters need to be removed - and a BIG NO to putting in any other 'film characters'. I feel the attraction is being cheapened by this - simply because the attraction made the movie - 36 years later, and not the other way around - personal opinion of course.

    When I see Sparrow and the rest of the folks now added to this attraction, I just see their celebrity - I don't see their 'movie character'. So, to me, it just seems like Johnny Depp is 'all over the place' now - not Sparrow or anyone else.

    Put Elizabeth in place of the red headed wench, Turner in the well, and Gibbs with the pigs!

    Seriously though are the new AA's supposed to be from the new movie? So far we've seen Elizabeth in her dress, her fighting clothes in the second, and the picture of her in the Asian garb in the third.
    Is this haunted room actually stretching? Or is it the four beers you had at DCA, hmmm?

    I totally agree with your point of view on this whole makeover. I really don't like it one bit.
