A Pirate Plunders in Shanghai

Don't be fooled by this looking at this great piece of concept art for Shanghai Disneyland's acclaimed version of the iconic Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. There's more treasure to be found on this post! I stumbled across a brand new video. This one is quiet, darker, and not filmed as steadily, but a viewer gets to hear more of the sound effects that are easily missed in other versions.

Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow may have his troubles in real life, but in the attraction, victory- and a continued loyal fan base- is certainly assured. Battle for the Sunken Treasure, Disney's newest take on the classic, is an instant classic in its own right. And it would be right at home in Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom as an all new attraction right next to the first pirate adventure. They are that different and quite complementary, if I may say so myself.
