    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.
