Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean is about to change with times by giving the infamous Wench Auction scene the cut.   In an article posted this week on Disney Parks Blog it was announced that Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland Paris, which is currently closed for refurbishment until July 24th will re-open with a few noticeable changes.  Chef among them is the fact that the auction scene will feature characters selling items such as chickens, guns and paintings rather than women.  The redhead will remain in a slightly new role which allows Imagineering to keep the line “We want the red head!” as a tip of the hat to the original scene.

Here’s an artist’s rendering of what the new scene may look like.

Other notable changes to the Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland Paris include the addition of Captain Barbossa as well as ghostly appearances by Davy Jones and Blackbeard.  The ride will also showcase new Audio-Animatronic figures, costumes, special effects, lights and sound.

Similar refurbishments are expected to take place at Disneyland and Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom in 2018.
