Just two weeks ago, Disney made the controversial announcement that a famous scene in Pirates of the Caribbean would be getting an overhaul. Now, Disneyland Paris is the first to unveil its updated classic attraction with some stunning results.
Gone is the old bride / wench auction, replaced by one for “trinkets and charms.” The pirates now cry out with desires for treasure, instead of women. And the famous redhead has been given a gun to oversee the event.

In French, the auctioneer kicks it off: “The auction begins, rascals! Make me an offer for these trinkets and charms. It’s a real treasure.” “Sell these by weight, captain!” replies another pirate. These, of course, are loose translations from French. It remains to be seen how the dialogue will play out in English when the US versions of the ride are updated in 2018.
The redhead isn’t the only empowered female in this newly-updated version of Pirates of the Caribbean. Another female pirate has been given a sword, now engaging in a duel:
While plenty of attention is fixated on the former “winsome wench,” another amazing addition to Pirates of the Caribbean really steals the show. Characters from the “Pirates” movie franchise have made their way to the Paris version of the attraction and while Jack Sparrow pops up here and there (even speaking in French), it’s Captain Barbossa that has the biggest scene.
