Imagineers Dish on Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow and working with Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp and Imagineers

The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow is the new walk-through attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios where guests follow in the footsteps of Jack Sparrow to see if they have what it takes to join his rowdy and daring pirate crew. In this video from Walt Disney Imagineering, Imagineers Jason Surrell, Laura Mitchell, Charita Carter and Jason Roberts take us behind the scenes of the making of this new experience. As you can tell, creating an entirely new attraction based on the “Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise was a dream come true, as was working with the film’s lead actor, Johnny Depp, who reprised his role as Captain Jack Sparrow for the attraction’s film elements

I guess one of the perks of working at Walt Disney Imagineering is the talented people you find yourself surrounded by. But even Imagineers are sometimes awed by some of the opportunities they get. In this case I think they deserve to brag a bit about it too.

I haven’t had the chance to experience the attraction yet, but I look forward to many visits in the future to take in all the details that you can see in the above video.
