Legend of Captain Jack Coming To Hollywood Studios

Those of you out there wanting to see something fresh at Disney's Hollywood Studios will be happy to learn plans for a new attraction at that park are in the works. Disney Parks Blog confirmed recently there are plans to bring a little "Pirates of the Caribbean" to DHS this fall with the new attraction, The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow.

While there aren't a whole lot in the way of details on the attraction thus far, it does appear the attraction will let guests and fans be immersed in the blockbuster movie franchise's subject. Disney Imaginnering show producer Jason Roberts had this to say about the upcoming, in-the-works attraction:

This is going to be an immersive experience. We'll really delve into the story of Captain Jack Sparrow and put our guests in the middle of it all in new and exciting ways. Story is always the most important thing for us at Walt Disney Imagineering, but we're always looking at new ways to tell the story that our guests have never seen before. In this attraction, we'll let you walk in the footsteps of Jack Sparrow. It's not 'the making of,' not 'behind the scenes' ... it is really a first-person experience. We worked with the archives as well as the filmmakers while they were shooting the last movie. And as a fan, I just loved sitting through those films again and again, going through all the details and leveraging them for this new experience. It's really been a blast.

Look for an opening date for The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow to be announced at a later date.

This sounds so interesting to me, but I'm just not sure what I think. I adore Pirates and Captain Jack, but I'm leary of what sounds like it may be another walk through attraction? I'm just going to have to keep my eyes open an see what susses out before making an opinion.

Hmmmm, this sounds so good as long as they stay way from the 'behind the scenes' kind of thing. We popped into the Narnia attraction in DHS last trip and to be honest it seemed like a bit of a filler, something to fill an empty space until something better came along.

I'm with Kristen on this one, another walk thru attraction that spills into a gift shop doesn't sound that attractive but I too will hold out hope (and opinion) until it is fully realized.

I'm a huge Disney fan and season ticket holder, live close enough to go several times a month. I would like to see more rides / attractions that get the pop of a space mountain, a Hulk coaster *Universal Studios, a Soarin or even the greatest attraction ever closed - Horizons.
