Suzi Brown, a spokeswoman for Disneyland Resorts, confirmed on Friday that the popular "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride will be swapping out a scene in which a pirate buys his wife at auction.

Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ride will axe its most infamous scene when the swashbuckling attraction undergoes modifications over the next year.

Artwork released by Disney showed that the sign which read "AUCTION" and "Take a wench for a bride" will soon feature the words: "AUCTION" and "SURRENDER YER LOOT".

The a video of the ride went viral a year ago when Johnny Depp acted as Captain Jack Sparrow. Also, a redheaded woman who got catcalled by the pirates in the original version ("We wants the redhead!"), will now become a gun-toting pirate herself.

Disney officials have confirmed they are planning on replacing a famous scene in the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. In 1997, the attraction was modified to make it appear as though pirates were lusting over plates of food, rather than chasing after women. Then, of course, along came the blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise to reinvigorate Disneyphiles love of the animatronic boat ride.

It will take a slew of new features to iMessage in iCloud person-to-person payments with Apple Pay, Siri enhancements and more. The assumed 10.5-inch iPad Pro is expected to arrive with a smaller 9.7-inch sibling, by virtue of the reduction in bezels.

You can see concept art for the new scene in the gallery below. That place, of course, is on the Pirates Of The Caribbean rides at various Disney parks around the world, which are the only amusement park attractions that bother to teach kids of all ages about the golden age of piracy and the misadventures of an actual historical figure named Johnny Depp.

"That's what the Imagineers have done with this new auction scene - it's like a theatre show with a new act, " said Sklar, who retired as head of Walt Disney Imagineering, which designs park attractions for the company worldwide.

The scene now shows women tied up with a rope and lined up to be auctioned off, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"The Imagineers are simply reflecting what Walt started the day Disneyland opened - making changes that create exciting new experiences for our guests".

But the fact that those scenes were updated while the bride auction remained intact rankled some even more. "Change is a "tradition" at Disneyland that today's Imagineers practice", he explained to the Orange County Register this week.
