Revenge of the Redhead
On Friday, Pirates of the Caribbean reopened after a month-long refurbishment to redo the auction scene. It has been a hotly debated decision, with fans on both sides arguing on whether it's better to preserve the original spirit of attraction or change for the sake of modern sensibilities. I won't comment on that in this post, but I do think the scene is now better lit for photography. So enjoy some photos of the scene below. It definitely photographs great!
|The auction scene has been retooled in the refurbished Pirates of the Caribbean.|
|No longer are wenches being sold off to lusty pirates. Instead, the townspeople are having their goods force-auctioned.|
|The Redhead is no longer one of the victims. Instead, she's joined the pirates' side and is a pillager too.|
|She cracks jokes about pirates wanting more rum. The townsfolk don't seem amused.|
|And the rotund woman still shifts her cargo, but rather than show 'em her larboard side, she's instructed to show 'em her "flock"... of hens.|
