Is Disney caving to political correctness?
Here's how the ride is currently set up.
Disney plans on changing the scene; the famous redhead will be turned into a pirate overseeing the handover of loot. Here's what Walt Disney Imagineering executive Kathy Magnum wrote in a blog post:
You’ll even discover that a familiar character is playing a new role joining the pirates ranks and helping the local townspeople “unload” their valuables at the Mercado auction. In the U.S., this famous redhead will appear in a similar scene at the Magic Kingdom Park and Disneyland park in 2018 following a previously scheduled refurbishment.
Some people think this is P.C. culture run amok. Why make changes to the classics? It's sanitizing history and no one was even asking for this.
