From July 14–16, see the all-new exhibit, “Walt Disney Archives Presents––A Pirate’s Life for Me: Disney’s Rascals, Scoundrels and Really Bad Eggs,” at the D23 Expo 2017. The 12,000-square-foot exhibit, located on the Expo show floor, celebrates Disney’s treasured pirates from film, television, and the beloved Disney parks attraction, from Peter Pan’s Captain Hook to Pirates of the Caribbean’s Captain Jack Sparrow.

The 12,000 square-foot exhibit will showcase Audio-Animatronics® figures from the original Disneyland attraction, a ride vehicle from Peter Pan’s Flight, and artwork and imagery from Treasure Island, Peter Pan, as well as an unproduced Donald Duck animated short, featuring the irascible duck searching for swashbuckler gold.

And for all the Pirates of Caribbean fans, come see original costumes worn by the star-studded cast, Davy Jones’ pipe organ, a 23-foot-tall set model of the Black Pearl ship, the Dead Men’s chest, and more original props and set pieces, including items from the new film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

If Pirates is not for you, the Archives will present “Fantastical Fashions,” a dazzling selection of dresses worn by beloved heroines and sinister villainesses. Costumes from six of Disney’s live-action fantasy films will be showcased including Enchanted (2007), Maleficent (2014), and Beauty and the Beast (2017).
