Unruly Wenches Get Cap’n Jack Canned?

7 Dec

KTLA reports that Disneyland has discontinued the perhaps-too-popular Jack Sparrow character. But it’s not because the economy’s down…

Disneyland management has fired the four actors who played pirate Jack Sparrow because officials were worried about young female park-goers flashing the swashbuckling actors late at night, according to one former cast member.

“They lost control when they saw Jack Sparrow,” said former pirate Brandon Pinto, who left the role after a dispute with management a year ago. “This is a sexy, rock-star pirate.”

The funnier quote comes later in the article, though:

Disney denies that they pirates were replaced by Tinker Bell fairies.

    The article I read had a comment from Disney saying that the the Jack Sparrow characters were being removed because of a waning interest in the character.
