    A newly released rendering of Disney's latest update to its iconic "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride depicts a red-headed woman, who once was up for auction, now as a rifle-toting pirate.

    Yo ho, yo ho, no pirate's auction block for this Disneyland ride.

    Disneyland's "Pirates of the Caribbean" ride is losing a scene where a bound and tearful woman is on the auction block for pirates to buy as a wife.

    A banner that now says "Auction, take a wench for a bride" will be changed to "Auction, Surrender yer loot," and the woman on the auction block will herself become a pirate.

    Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown said Friday the changes will be made at the Paris park in July and at the Anaheim, California, and Florida parks next year.

    The change is the most recent of several updates to the ride to match modern sensibilities, including one where a scene was altered to have pirates chasing a woman's food instead of the woman.
