First ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Themed Land Coming to Shanghai Disneyland

Disney’s Shanghai Disneyland will include Treasure Cove, a themed land that will include a “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride designed specifically for Chinese guests.

The first look of the attraction was shown at Disney’s shareholders meeting in Portland, Ore., by Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger.

The ride, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle of the Sunken Treasure,” will be the first to be based on the “Pirates” films, and incorporate new effects and technology, as well as the Captain Jack Sparrow and Davy Jones characters from the films.

“Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the most iconic attractions in our parks, and we really couldn’t imagine Shanghai Disneyland without Pirates,” Iger said. “We wanted to create a one-of-a-kind experience that would appeal to our Chinese guests while remaining true to its Disney heritage.”

“We are extremely proud of all the work underway to bring the Shanghai Disney Resort to life,” said Tom Staggs, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. “And we’re excited to re-imagine the iconic world and characters of Pirates for the first time as an entire land that celebrates the creativity, imagination and adventure of both the fan favorite attraction and the popular film franchise.”

Disney has previously added Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow to the “Pirates” rides in its other parks and has a “Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow” walk-through show at the Hollywood Studios park in Orlando, Fla., but the Shanghai “Pirates” will be the first actual ride to be designed around the film franchise.

Shanghai Disneyland is set to open in 2015.
