One of Disneyland’s most popular rides will be getting a little makeover in 2018.
According to the OC Register, the Walt Disney Company plans to make changes to the auction scene in the classic attraction.
The scene has been getting plenty of criticism for what some believed to be a “sexist” approach to women.
Kathy Mangum, senior vice president of Walt Disney Imagineering, released a statement in a blog post stating:
“Our team thought long and hard about how to best update this scene. Given the redhead has long been a fan favorite, we wanted to keep her as a pivotal part of the story, so we made her a plundering pirate! We think this keeps to the original vision of the attraction as envisioned by Marc Davis, X Atencio and the other Disney legends who first brought this classic to life.”
