It is expected that the new attraction will be in Soundstage 4, the location which formerly housed Journey into Narnia. An exact opening date for the attraction will be announced later this year.

The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow will give guests a chance to become immersed in the world of the four "Pirates of the Caribbean" films. According to Jason Roberts, show producer for Walt Disney Imagineering, "This is going to be an immersive experience. We'll really delve into the story of Captain Jack Sparrow and put our guests in the middle of it all in new and exciting ways. Story is always the most important thing for us at Walt Disney Imagineering, but we're always looking at new ways to tell the story that our guests have never seen before. In this attraction, we'll let you walk in the footsteps of Jack Sparrow It's not 'the making of,' not 'behind the scenes' ... it is really a first-person experience. We worked with the archives as well as the filmmakers while they were shooting the last movie. And as a fan, I just loved sitting through those films again and again, going through all the details and leveraging them for this new experience. It's really been a blast."
