Frankly, I think too many Pirates are going to spoil it. Pirates are a total 'fad' right now, and then all of a sudden they will be 'out' and then Disney will have to 'revamp' again. I say, just save the money and put it into Tomorrowland, myself.
Most, if not all of Fantasmic is a dream, right? So Jack Sparrow could fit in that context. Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, and all the characters on the Mark Twain fit in, so why not Jack?
Though, he could steal the show, and they might have to change parts of the script to give him an important role, to maintain his character. If he was just there, waving on the SS COlombia, it wouldn't do Captain Jack's character justice.
Leave fantasmic the way it is now. We don't need Sparrow in it.
No, they really shouldn't leave it how it is now... it REALLY needs some updated effects.
And to the line about comparing adding jack in F! to putting elephants in POTC... Fantasmic is in Mickey's imagination... so really there COULD be POTC in there. While in no way they should get rid of the PP scene, I do think Jack would fit in the finale or perhaps in some updated additional scenes?

I agree, leave the show the way it is. Also, putting a Pirates sequence in it would be fairly hard to do. Also, I don't think it would turn out that great. Even if Jack was on the Twain, you would not know who he is because of the darkness, and the proximity of the boat to the guests. Also, I have noticed that a majority of the characters on the boat are the headed characters, not the face characters. I think it is because of the darkness, people can see the headed characters better than the face characters. Plus all that makeup for the face characters for a 5 minute trip around the island? Granted, Disney does go the extra step, but I think for fantasmic it's not worth it. If Jack was on the twain, I would not mind, but I would object to an additional pirate show scene. Plus, if you look at the concept art for the rumored DCA water show, it has the P of C skull on the right hand side. Maybe it will be added to DCA...but enough pirates for Disneyland.
Okay so I think the only way they should put in Capt Jack would be to have him sailing on one of the Tom Sawyer rafts. He could follow the Peter Pan scene and talk about commendeering the ship. I love F! even though it's been years since I've seen it, I really hope they don't take anything out. I'd be fine if they added to it, just don't take anything away.
