  • [Chat] The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow

    I'd like to know what everybody thinks of the new Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow attraction. I was also wondering if it is about Captian Jack Sparrow because I don't really see him in any of the pictures...it's kinda odd.

    There is a video up on Youtube of the entrance and compete show. It looks like its a fun little 8 minute interactive show. No seats, and the MC is an animated pirate skull. Jack shows up about half way through and takes you on as crew to fight the Flying Dutchman.

    Neat little show, great effects, typical Disney fun!

      I see it as modern day WDI's lame attempt at the enchanted tiki room... It proves (to me anyways) that animatronics are always better than projections and orignal ideas are better than franchise based ones. However, as someone who likes to fool around with projections, I think the show is kind of cool. The execution, meh. But the idea of an interactive movie experience in DHS is valid. I just wish WDI would be given the funding to create a fully immersive Pixar studios ride (no not one franchise). I would love to see a Pixar studios "tram" tour (people mover would be better) where you got to see your favorite Pixar characters go from sketch to computer and seemingly come to life before your eyes... But that's just me.

          i think thats why it seems kind of "half-assed" for lack of a better term as it is to serve as a decent stop gap until something better and more cohesive can be created for the area. most likely as soon as some real concept is created for DHS it will make way for something new near the end of a major construction. just my opinion.

            The combination of projections and dressed sets reminds me of If You Had Wings and El Rio del Tiempo. It looks like a fun little show. I don't think it'll be a huge draw, but it'll give families something to do while they're waiting for their TSMM Fastpass times.

            I'm headed down on Tuesday; I hope it's still in soft open so I can check it out.

              You gotta remember that it isn't a big budget E ticket attraction. It's just a little diversion. Can't wait to see it for myself next week!

                Looks like Timekeeper on roids in that it's a vaguely Circle-Vision-esque thing with a themed theater, but a theater with far more detail then the Timekeeper and 9-Eye base.

                  Not everything has to be an E-Ticket and this is quite obviously far from an E-Ticket. It seems to be well-executed for an attraction of the sort and is indeed reminiscent of If You Had Wings, minus the ride system and miniature set pieces. If only it had that vintage charm and appeal.

                    I love Alain... he has insights into WDI that few have.

                    Several thoughts about the show
                    the limited screen height was detrimental to the Kraken scene.
                    Capt. Jack was too mild
                    The talking head’s voice wasn’t pirate-tee enough.
                    The back of room projections were not used enough… like the head could have moved there once or twice.

                    Otherwise interesting…

                      dumb question
                      are there 2 different versions of the ride?

                        My thoughts are that its better than what was there before. I don't really think this was built so much to be an attraction as it was to test out some new technologies which we may start seeing in other rides. Someone else posted recently that they felt this was a test for the Pirates ride in Shanghai. I wouldn't mind seeing a few rides using projection technology over animatronics. I don't want to see animatronics go away completely, but projection technology is pretty cool and it would allow for the feeling of three dimensional depth on a ride, maybe not to the same level of an animatronic, but there's also a lot you can do with it that you can't with a robot.

                          My sense is that anything in this location is much more about promotion than it is about an attraction. It's always been kind of a presentation you might see at a trade show rather than a full blown theme park attraction. I was really disappointed with the Chronicles of Narnia thing. I remember finishing it and thinking "That's it?" So now I go with lowered expectations, which isn't such a bad thing in this one location.

                            The talking pirate head reminded me of the voice singing the "Spongebob Squarepants" theme. and what was up with Davey Jones' voice?? Sounded nothing like him!!
