VIDEO – New ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Auction Scene in Walt Disney World


The classic chant of “We wants the Redhead!” has been replaced with “We wants the RUM!” in the new auction scene in Walt Disney World’s Pirates of the Caribbean.

The revamped scene has been a source of contention for many Disney fans, and today we finally have our first look at what the scene actually entails, courtesy of a video posted by Attractions Magazine.

As reported earlier, the new scene features a revamped version of the Redhead animatronic (now a pirate herself, and named “Redd”) as she oversees an auction of the townpeople’s valuables.

It’s Redd who now says the pirates are “sponging for rum” (a callback to the Auctioneer’s classic line) and that they’re not interested in what the Auctioneer is selling.

There’s no mention of the curvy woman’s “starboard side,” instead she’s showing off her… hens? Yes, chickens. They’re auctioning chickens.

It’s certainly going to take some getting used to, and it’ll be interesting to see how longtime Disney fans react to the scene in the months and years to come.

The original Pirates of the Caribbean in Disneyland will be going down for refurbishment in April to add the same revised scene.

I've loved Disney as long as I can remember. As a former newspaper editor, web developer, and Disney comics freelancer, I'm able to combine that experience into writing about Disney online. I'm also the co-host of a Disney fan podcast called 'Pirates & Princesses.' Opinions mine.
