"Strike yer colors, yeh bloomin' cockroachers!" is still in there, thank the Lord. There's a YouTube clip that gives most of the spiel...
Gah, I can't get over how little Barbossa looks like Geoffrey Rush. My sister rode the updated POTC for the first time and began debating with her friends whether that was even supposed to be Barbossa at all. And, as is usually the case, photos accentuate the differences even more.
I don't think so. I mean, they obviously had permission for Jack/Johnny...
What I know did happen was Bruckheimer had the mindblowing audacity to refuse to let the Wicked Wench be rethemed to the Black Pearl.
Yeah, he didn't want the boat from the movie in the ride.
I am glad that they have left most of the lines in the ride.
Let's just get the orig. captain back now.

To that end I'd like the Internet community to join me in reminding the Disney company that "it all started with Walt." As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.
Maybe Bruckheimer is a Disney purist and didn't want the ride to all of the sudden be based on a movie.
Hey, I'm not saying I would have approved of this change. I'm just saying, it was incredibly bold and, IMO, ridiculous of him to deny Disney that permission. That being said, I highly doubt purism had anything to do with it. I mean...look how far from the ride he strayed with the second and (especially) third films, and consider the fact that he had no problem with the addition of Jack and Davy, along with the heinous removal of the original captain. (And consider this dismaying observation--I'm a huge fan of Geoffrey Rush's work in the first film, yet I'm still violently opposed to his substitution into the ride.)
