    Disney Adds More Depp

    Hey, isn't that Johnny Depp chasing the serving wench?

    When the Pirates of the Caribbean ride reopens June 26 at Disneyland after being shuttered since March, visitors will be treated to bigger cannon explosions, more gold doubloons and an animatronic figure of Captain Jack Sparrow from the film franchise originally inspired by the classic theme park attraction.

    Basically, Disney made movies based on a ride and, in turn, is now making the ride look more like the movies. Which, when you think about it, is pretty much what the company has been doing for the past 50 years.

    This reintroduction to Jack Sparrow's wily ways has been craftily timed, of course, to coincide with the nationwide July 7 release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, the sequel to 2002's smash hit, The Curse of the Black Pearl, which has grossed more than $653 million worldwide and turned Depp into a $20 million man. (A third film is already slated for a late May 2007 opening.)
