BREAKING: Redhead Auction Scene in Pirates of the Caribbean Getting Politically Correct Makeover in 2018

BREAKING: Redhead Auction Scene in Pirates of the Caribbean Getting Politically Correct Makeover in 2018

Disney today announced that the Disneyland and Walt Disney World versions of Pirates of the Caribbean will be receiving a new scene in 2018, replacing the auction of women which has been part of the ride for 50 years.

The scene will debut along with other changes when the Disneyland Paris version of the ride opens July 24th, 2017. No exact date was given for the changes in Florida and California.

The new scene will feature an auction of surrendered goods, with the infamous redhead now becoming a pirate assisting with the taking of the items from the townsfolk.

Disneyland Paris is also adding a new scene featuring Barbossa, along with ghostly images of Davy Jones and Blackbeard.

As you mentioned back in the Pirates BTTF regarding if this happened: “Let the riots begin!”

P.S. This really has become “Boy Scouts of the Caribbean”

By the way does it bother anyone else that Barbossa looks ripped in that concept art?

About time this trash was removed and updated to something a little more classy. We do not want big chested women showing their goods. We want pant suits and women being respected.

Thank goodness for PC in the world. Long live women’s rights and now if we can remove the pickles from the park we will be in a great place.

Oh shut up…its historically accurate. I bet you want all movies that take place in the 1800s to have no slavery and women in places of power too. If things offend you…shut up and be offended and deal with it. Not every single thing has to make everyone feel good. They’re Pirates…not good guys.

and the Irish were slaves also. I don’t think you would find a red head pirate. why miss with
something which has created long lines since it opened, I think you got a bunch of new
people in there who are not educated to the history of the moment .

Ummm… yeah Irish were pirates, actually as you mention this sad chapter in Irish history, it is directly linked to the start of piracy. Many pirate attacks were actually slave revolts. So I would assume there were many red headed pirates. That being said, they should the scene as it is. It is a classic!

One might consider that perhaps a Disney world ride is not the best place to get your history lessons and therefore “historical accuracy” is completely irrelevant.

No we don’t want women in ugly pantsuits, the we want the redhead is an accurate part of history and women were auctioned off if your really offended maybe you should go some place else. We want the redhead!! Strike your colors ye braisen witch, no need to expose your suberstructure. I am a woman and I’m sick of feminist pigs like you.

How disappointing. I don’t get how it’s politically incorrect to show an historically accurate scene objectifying women, but showing pirates stealing from people as entertainment is completely fine.

You are aware that a large sweep of “the left” and “the liberals” aren’t really on a Johnny Drop bandwagon bc of his recent and past confirned abuse and assault allegations. Seems maybe you have more to agree on with the left than you think?

This makes sense. Is it necessary? I don’t know. But looking at the scene with a current mindset it does not fit within the Disney brand of today. The ride is meant to have a sense of humor and so if you ask the question: “is this funny?”and break it down I can see why this is probably a good idea. Thinking about the different themes or concepts that make up this scene that really are not funny. It has the obvious sexism but also judging someones value based on their appearance and theres fat jokes in there and then… Read more »

It’s hardly “long winded”… is that too many words for you or something?? Maybe actually read what the commenter has to say and take it to heart. Plus, I’m always up for the addition of more pirates!

More pirates??? you mean boy scouts or towns folks. Since when did pirates auction off their goods or go to auctions for that matter? They looted and stole what they wanted.

The whole ride isn’t based on “is this funny” though. The first couple scenes before the drop are certainly not meant to be funny.

The reason she’s so cocky and enjoying it is because she IS A PIRATE or at least with the pirates. She’s NOT getting sold at all. She’s watching them sell the other women. The men “wants the redhead” because they know they can’t have her. Figure it out. Look at the difference in clothing.

I’ve never understood why this scene hasn’t been changed.
They switched the scene down river where the pirates were chasing the girls, but never this one.
I don’t see how this can be spun any other way than human trafficking.
Good move Disney. Finally.

I already “thank the Phoenicians” on Spaceship Earth, so I might as well call out “we wants the redhead”.
I find it amazing that Disney finds it necessary to make pirates more politically correct. Nobody goes on that ride to see polite and proper pirates. What’s next? Take away the pirates’ guns and swords and replace them with flowers? Maybe they should remove the man from the well and have the pirates politely ask him the whereabouts of Jack Sparrow. the pendulum is swinging too far the other way.

I agree? This PC is crap for this ride. If they change this because of pc, then the song has to change, the burning town has to change, the whole ride has to change. Its about pirates so whats next? The movies are going to be remade to put the pirates on yachts and in suits? Special snowflakes and their special feelings make me sick.

I don’t think pirates were politically correct. Its a part of history why change it? History is how we learn from our mistakes so we can be better in the future. If you change history the young won’t realize how much better it is today and may make even more mistakes then we do today.

I am an annual Passholder and have been to every Disney park on earth and I ADORE Disney… but… pirates were not politically correct … if they want to update and be PC they need to create a more equal representation and inclusion of interracial and same sex couples on the Ferris wheel in Small World in Orlando. It has irritated me for 20 years

Oh great! While they’re at it, they might as well remove any skeletons, drinking, and the waterboarding scene! In fact, they should just tear it down and replace it with another seventy Frozen rides because screw Walt Disney, they need to appease the SJWs that are outraged because they’re letting our current president speak in the Hall of Presidents.

It’s also clearly politically incorrect to show people in jail who are going to be burned alive. So they’d better change the jail scene too.
