All About Shanghaî Disneyland Treasure Cove Stunt Show!

Let's start the year - or end it depending where you're living as part of the planet is not yet in 2016 - with a Shanghaî Disneyland article - after all, SDL will be the main theme park event later this Spring, right? 

Today we'll have a closer look at SDL Treasure Cove Pirate stunt show, probably the most awaited show of Shanghaî Disneyland. Here his the official synopsis:

"“Eye of the Storm: Captain Jack’s Stunt Spectacular” at Treasure Cove: At El Teatro Fandango, the theatre audience will be enthralled as Captain Jack Sparrow and his band of wily pirates romp through the theatre in search of a misplaced treasure chest. As Captain Jack is confronted first by the beautiful redheaded star and then the Royal Admiral and his men, the swashbuckling action takes off with swordfights, fantastic stunts and a raging storm. Making its global premiere at Shanghai Disneyland, the show presents pirate humor and a remarkable finale as Captain Jack fights off the Admiral in a whirlwind adventure."

As you'll see on the rendering below everything will start in the El Fandango theatre pre-show room where some swashbuckling will happen on the balcony to entertain the audience while they wait to enter in the main room.

All the artwork below are screen captures from an official video released by SDL. The video was showing all the different artworks for the show scenes and i took as principle they've been filmed in chronological order as generally these videos are done intelligently. If it's not the case it mean that the order of the scenes will be different which doesn't mean they won't be part of the stunt show, so it's no big problem. 

Apparently the arrival on stage of Jack Sparrow will be done with his giant shadow appearing on the stage curtain...

...followed by Captain Jack sliding on a cable down to the stage and flying over the spectators heads. 

The next arrival seems to be the one of a pirate "red-head" girl...

...who will use his whip against Jack for so far unknown reasons.

At one point Jack will find himself bounded...

...before getting involved in an elevated fight with one of the Admiral soldiers.

Spectators will hear from the right side of the stage a loud bang from a cannon... then discover once the smoke will have disappeared a severely damaged stage decor.

In a next scene Jack will use another cannon on stage...

...with the cannonball sending one of the soldiers in the air.

We'll find back Captain Jack up in a boat...

...and then stealing the treasure chest while an the Admiral is shooting at him to prevent him to escape.

Next will be a new swashbuckling sequence with the Admiral.

Another loud explosion may end the show...

...with the winning pirates sharing the treasure chest and sending golden coins to the audience.

There surely will be more to see during this stunt show but these artworks already gives an idea of how the show will look at SDL Treasure Cove when the park will open later this spring. If you've not watched yet the video from where these screen captures are coming, here it is below! See you soon for a new Shanghaî Disneyland update!
