Walt Disney World has officially confirmed the new immersive experience, Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow, will debut at Disney’s Hollywood Studios this fall. It’s being described as “a first-of-its kind sensory experience,” where you feel like you’re actually in the blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean films. This new attraction will be located inside Soundstage 4, which was previously the home of Journey into Narnia: Prince Caspian.
Walt Disney Imagineering Show Producer, Jason Roberts, explains it best:
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.
