INTRODUCTION:

Dear United States Attorneys’ Office; the Securities and Exchange Commission “SEC” - (the same SEC which for years repeatedly failed to properly investigate Bernard Madoff and his company’s multi billion dollar fraud and corruption despite the letters of whistle-blowers), FILE No. HO-1260637; the North American Securities Administrators Association - “NASAA”, the FBI, The Walt Disney Company - including Robert A. Iger, Fred H. Langhammer, Susan Arnold, Judith L. Estrin, John S. Chen, Aylwin B. Lewis, Monica C. Lozano, Orin C. Smith, Robert W. Matschullat, Sheryl Sandberg; shareholders & investors, business partners; the estate of Steve Jobs; the estate of Roy E. Disney, Jerry Bruckheimer, Johnny Depp, Alice Davis, Francis X. Atencio, the Disney-Miller family, John Lasseter, Ed Catmull, Ann 'A.C.' Crispin & to whom it may concern:

What I am presenting is a very serious and important issue. As documented, I, Royce Mathew, had sued the Walt Disney Company, Jerry Bruckheimer Inc./films, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio in Federal Court with regards to the Pirates of the Caribbean movie. However, as now exposed and documented, the Walt Disney Company worked with individuals Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, and the business of Jerry Bruckheimer Inc./Films, and had engaged in corrupt, fraudulent and criminal acts with which to maliciously threaten and financially destroy me, prevent the evidence from going before a jury, financially profit, dupe investors and purposely alter the public’s perception of the truth.

I am a both a victim and a whistle-blower. Thus the following contains documented proof, key details pinpointing some of the Walt Disney Company’s criminal acts, deliberate fraud and certain corruption, which includes this publicly traded company having intentionally created fraudulent physical evidence, concocted facts and lies with which to continue to financially profit, escape all accountability and purposely alter the court, its shareholders and the public’s perception of the truth.

For convenience, below are over fifteen archived photo set comparisons and materials, all streamlined for quick reference. As I have experienced and have documented, instead of attempting to resolve a serious issue regarding the Pirates of the Caribbean movie with any logical or fair approach, or even by way of a jury to review any of the evidence, the Walt Disney Company has intentionally orchestrated, supervised and engaged in criminal activity, deliberate fraudulent and corrupt acts, especially involving a book titled “Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies” written by Disney employee Jason Surrell and signed off by Martin “Marty” Sklar, with which to avoid all accountability, continue to profit and reward itself solely based its own design of misdirection, concocted facts and lies.

It is a documented fact (photo evidence below including a key photo exposing & proving the Walt Disney Company’s fraud & corruption - see Chapter 6) that during the legal proceedings, the Walt Disney Company together with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio officially and maliciously demanded that I “admit” that their concocted facts and lies were true, and then by mixing in additional misdirection, firmly threaten that if I didn’t dismiss my case by May 18, 2007, Disney, with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio would get the court to dismiss my case and hit me with enormous fees, sanctions and expenses. As also documented, during the legal proceedings, I had pleaded for intervention, even providing verifiable information of what Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio, Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar were deliberately doing, but all of my pleas were ignored and I was maliciously threaten to dismiss my lawsuit. It was the Walt Disney Company’s sole intent to get the court to do their putrid bidding that would prevent me (and the evidence) a day before a jury while it wrongfully and maliciously financially destroyed me.

Seeing that the Walt Disney Company, working with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, would go through such orchestrated fraudulent and corrupt acts, who can control the public and court by having deliberately incorporated concocted facts and lies into their official company book, on websites, interviews, as well as fused into the legal proceeding documents, their defense evidence and their sworn testimony with which to give me its gangster style ultimatum disguised in a legal setting, I had no choice but to dismiss my lawsuit. I fear the Walt Disney Company.

It is a documented fact that the Walt Disney Company, working with Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio and the business of Jerry Bruckheimer Inc./Films, had engaged in gangster styled tactics, which included deliberately concocting facts and lies, destroying, discarding, tampering with, purposely adulterating, concealing, deliberately making false entries on documents which were absolutely crucial and relevant to unfolding litigation that greatly and totally affected the legal proceedings, while they maliciously threatened me because I had sought the intervention of the court, and maliciously threatened me because I had then pleaded for intervention from Disney’s board of directors, all while they purposely altered the public’s perception of the truth, and all while they profited from their illegal acts. To this day, they all still continue to profit.

Therefore, in conjunction with “Disney’s Corporate Responsibility - Business Standards and Ethics - Corporate Governance”, I had previously notified the Walt Disney Company, with which to get this matter before a proper forum. However my letters requesting intervention were all ignored. Furthermore, despite that Disney’s own company issued “Standards of Business Conduct”, which states that the company and all of its employees must uphold high standards of integrity, honesty, respect, fair play, and that they must uphold lawful and ethical standards, and that they must not destroy, alter or tamper with documents especially those for legal proceedings, it is now fully documented by its actions and proven by its own evidence, that the Walt Disney Company is indeed controlled by a bunch of unscrupulous individuals employing gangster style tactics who are proficient in using anything at their disposal with which to commit criminal acts, and who are highly skillful in using the vast resources of the company with which to cover up their criminal acts, and who maliciously threaten those who seek accountability in court.

As was verified during the legal proceedings, this serious matter particularly involves past and current Disney employees Michael D. Eisner, Marty Sklar, Jason Surrell, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio. It also involves Robert Iger and the Walt Disney Company board of directors failure and refusal to respond. However, even though the Walt Disney Company acts as if it were a private company with hypocritical standards, corrupt practices and evident criminal acts with which to steal, control, threaten and coverup for their own profit, with no fear of failed government oversight agencies, this publicly traded company is still obligated to the truth and is forever accountable for all of its actions.






Since ongoing compounding evidence and Disney’s recent 2009 official publication titled, The Art of Walt Disney World Resort, which exposes, proves and confirms that the Walt Disney company had indeed committed fraud and had been deliberately lying at the onset of legal communications, meetings, court filings, discovery, sworn testimony and lasting throughout the legal proceedings with which to maliciously threaten and financially destroy me, prevent the evidence from going before a jury, financially profit, dupe investors and purposely alter the public’s perception of the truth, then this site also serves notification of the advancement of the process of filing formal complaints and charges of conspiracy, fraud, corruption, obstruction of justice, evidence tampering and such against the Walt Disney Company including Marty Sklar, Jason Surrell, Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio and other particular individuals and executives hiding behind the corporate Mickey Mouse logo.

I, Royce Mathew, an independent artist, am the sole owner of all of my original work, including my supernatural pirate story, screenplays, movie and derivative works. This includes the Black Pearl pirate ship and characters. No one, including the Walt Disney Company, has ever had any authorization, permission or contract to use, exploit, augment, copy or make derivative works from any of my copyrighted protected works. A short condensed version of my supernatural pirate movie was published in 1994/1995. Since 2003, the Walt Disney Company along with Jerry Bruckheimer Films/Inc. have been violating my copyrights, and deliberately continues to violate my copyrighted protected creative work.

The following detailed proof with photos archiving the Walt Disney Company’s deliberate fraudulent and corrupt acts intentionally done with which to profit, maliciously threaten me, avoid accountability and alter the court, its shareholders and the public’s perception of the truth can be verified by checking the sources, (which I have listed with each item, such as certain available DVDs and, particular issues and page numbers of published publications) which include “Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies” book and notably “E-Ticket” magazine (Jack Janzen & Leon Janzen publication) and “Theme Park Adventure” book (Rick West publication). It is a fact that Disney itself also considers both of these publications, E-Ticket and Theme Park Adventure to be highly prized resources for factual reporting, interviews, and itself keenly draws from these two publications for their own publications, notably for their “Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies” book. It is also a fact that Ted Elliott declared during the legal proceedings that he, while working with Terry Rossio on the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, had relied on E-Ticket magazine as an important resource because it had documented the development of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction.

As documented, through the years, in several issues, E-Ticket magazine features detailed history, exclusive rare photos and notable interviews about the creation, development and execution of Walt Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, especially in their celebrated 1999 published Pirates of the Caribbean issue 32. While in 1999 Theme Park Adventure had published an entire book on the history of Walt Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, that also features notable interviews. However, as now exposed, you will see that Disney using Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar and working with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, have together deliberately used particular portions of the factual information that these two publications contained with which to intentionally misdirect, concoct facts and lies. As now exposed and documented here, you will also see that they have deliberately fused these concocted facts and lies into interviews, websites, publications, the legal proceeding documents, their defense evidence and their sworn testimony with which to wrongfully and maliciously threaten me to dismiss my lawsuit.

As documented by its actions and proven by its own evidence, the Walt Disney Company is indeed controlled by a bunch of unscrupulous individuals employing gangster style tactics who are proficient in using anything at their disposal with which to commit criminal acts, and who are highly skillful in using the vast resources of the company with which to cover up their criminal acts, and who maliciously threaten those who seek accountability in court. Thus when dealing with the Walt Disney Company, its fraud, corruption, putrid policies, criminal acts and gangster styled tactics, it is pointless to ever seek accountability by way of any logical resolution, fair mediation or by way of the court.

Since I am an independent artist, and this is my ongoing effort in seeking accountability and corrective action, I have titled it: Fighting for your Dream: Exposing the Truth behind the Black Pearl and the supernatural pirate movie.

CHAPTER - 1) A brief review:

Walt Disney ride attractions such as Snow White, Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, Pinocchio and Splash Mountain are based on stories written by various artists. They were written as stories, published in books and even had movies made of their original story. Meanwhile, a collection of Walt Disney’s other ride attractions, including The Haunted Mansion, The Enchanted Tiki Room, The Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain and It’s a Small World have no stories. They are all are just a series of experiences and situations that use a collection of things which are usually associated with the same subject matter.

Jason Surrell: “Fantasyland’s dark rides, such as Peter Pan’s Flight and Snow White’s Scary Adventures, loosely retold the film stories on which they were based, but Pirates (of the Caribbean) had no such specific frame of reference. Instead, the Imagineers were creating a series of loosely related tableaux that would transport guests to another time and place and give them an experience they couldn’t have anywhere else.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 29)

As documented, the Walt Disney Company wanted to maximize profits by trying to exploit its ride attractions that had no stories. So they engaged in the process of trying to generate stories which featured the names of its ride attractions and incorporated elements of them.

However, as documented, for years the Walt Disney Company repeatedly failed to manufacture a favorable screenplay especially for a movie based on its Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, because just like its other ride attractions such as The Haunted Mansion, The Enchanted Tiki Room, The Jungle Cruise, Space Mountain and It’s a Small World, it has no story.

WHAT IS WALT DISNEY’S PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN ?

Walt Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction official poster caption: “Sail with the wildest crew that ever sacked the Spanish Main”.

Pirates of the Caribbean Artwork done by Marc Davis on vintage postcards: “This reproduction is one of the original sketches used in creating the New Orleans Square Attraction, Pirates of the Caribbean. Waterborne guests in traditional bayou bateaux are carried through dramatic and humorous adventures of fighting, pillaging and plundering pirates.” (1967 - Disney Enterprises)

“Pirates of the Caribbean: A water journey through the bayous of New Orleans turns into a search for lost treasures, a close brush with a marauding band of pirates, and a daring escape from a burning city.” (Marc Davis & Alice Davis official website)

E-Ticket - issue 21: “Pirates of the Caribbean...” “...from California to Tokyo, from Florida to Paris and the result is always the same...to pillage and plunder, to rifle and loot...” (1995 - E-Ticket issue 21 - page 30)


FACT: Originally to be a wax museum, Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction features a series of situations and experiences displaying pirates attacking and pillaging a town, seeking sex, food, drink and treasure, and are doomed to never get out alive. Although several artists worked on Walt Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, it was Marc Davis who created the character and gag designs, and it was Claude Coats who did the settings. Afterwards, when a model of the attraction was built, Francis X. Atencio generated a script with dialogue and narration.

Tom Fitzgerald: “Claude Coats and Marc Davis had huge influence. Marc was one of Walt’s nine old men, the animators. Marc contributed the vignettes to the attraction - all the gags, the wonderful characters that brought the ride to life. And Claude Coats created the fantastic settings. Claude worked in animation as a layout and background artist. So Claude created the setting, Marc created the characters and together you’ve got Pirates of the Caribbean.” (2003 - Disney - Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl DVD disk 2 - History of the Attraction)

Francis X.Atencio: “Marc Davis and Claude Coats had already worked out the ride, so we had all the little miniatures for each scene. So, all I had to do was walk through the mock up there and see what was there and what should be said." (2004 - Walt Disney Family Foundation)

FACT: Various noted Disney artists, writers, producers, historians and Disney’s own documents and self published materials proves and confirms that Walt Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride, its conceptual artwork, scripts, designs and proposals has no story.

FACT: Since its inception, Walt Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean is a series of situations and experiences that were taken from a collection of things that are usually related with pirate lore. This includes displaying the “skeletal remains” of dead pirates and their possessions in deserted supposedly haunted “caverns-grotto” areas before we see the pirates in their heyday where they are attacking, pillaging, plundering, sacking and burning up a town, as seen in California, Florida and Tokyo’s version of the ride attraction. In Disneyland Paris, they’ve reversed this, by first showing the pirates in their heyday where they are seen attacking, pillaging, plundering, sacking and burning up a town, and then by showing the various skeletal remains of the pirates in the deserted haunted “caverns-grotto”, where they died long ago. The “supernatural elements” in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction is because the deserted caverns-grotto are supposed to be haunted, complete with a “talking skull”, “ghostly voices” and a harpsichord organ that plays by itself.





SEEKING A UNIQUE STORY - When trying to generate a favorable story featuring the title of its ride attractions, does the Walt Disney Company own the story of George Lucas’ Star Wars, his characters and fictional inventions simply because they both deal with the subject of “space travel” and Disney can incorporate “elements” from their Space Mountain ride attraction into it? Does the Walt Disney Company own the story of The Birds simply because they both deal with the subject of “birds” and Disney can insert “elements” from their Tiki Room attraction into it? Does the Walt Disney Company own the story of Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park simply because Disney can merge “elements” from their “Grand Canyon Prehistoric Time Train Ride Attraction” into it because they both feature dinosaurs? Does the Walt Disney Company own the story, characters and sequences of every scary movie simply because they have a Haunted Mansion ride attraction? Can the Walt Disney Company harvest anyone’s original story, characters and sequences by simply justifying that the Walt Disney Company owns a mass of creative work simply because they can say that each doll from their It’s A Small World ride attraction has a story to tell?

Because their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction has no story, in simple terms, the materials and facts substantiate that the Walt Disney Company, at the very least, had incorporated some homages and set decorations “elements” (aka - ride references) from their Pirates of the Caribbean theme park ride attraction into my original supernatural pirate story and structural blueprints which is about “cursed pirates” of the Black Pearl pirate ship; pirates who don't want anything to do with the plunder/return a treasure because they are cursed, with effects of the curse they endure is fully revealed by moonlight and the gold medallion on a gold chain with mystic properties - able to summon/call. In addition to evidently plagiarizing all of my unique work and sequences for their pirate movie, they also harvested other people’s published creative works and sequences as well. For example, since they didn’t like the original ending, director Gore Verbinski called it a “bummer”, they utilized the daring opening “pirate hanging sequence” from rival studio Universal’s “Swashbuckler” movie as their new daring pirate hanging ending. Another sequence they also utilized was the “walking underwater under the overturned rowboat sequence” from Warner Bros. “The Crimson Pirate” movie. Then this plagiarizing recipe was given a multimillion dollar budget and its resulting yield was deliberately presented, solicited and sold as Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean The Curse of the Black Pearl movie that is based on Disney’s famous Pirates of the Caribbean theme park ride attraction and is credited to Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio.

CHAPTER - 2) Prove they inserted Ride References into a unique supernatural pirate story that is credited to Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio:

It is a documented fact that for a movie to be called Pirates of the Caribbean, the Walt Disney Company had been pitched and had ultimately themselves generated several scripts that contained Pirates of the Caribbean ride references. These scripts were done by various writers. However, it was when Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio came into the project, that my original supernatural pirate story including my unique structural blueprints, sequences, characters, key dialogue and original fictional inventions are clearly being copied, exploited and plagiarized.

Ted Elliott: “We wanted obviously to work the elements of the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride into the, uh, movie...” (2003 - Disney - Curse of The Black Pearl DVD audio commentary)

Derek Hill: (Art Director on movie) “We took as much of the elements of the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride at Disneyland. The pirates shooting people, the pirate dunking the guy in the well. So we did all these things from the ride “ (Disney - Audio Commentary of The Lost Disk - as released November 2, 2004)

Ted Elliott: “We wanted to recreate/evoke some specific moments from the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride -- the pirate attack on the town being the most obvious. ” - (August 18, 2006 - Wordplayer.com)

Jason Surrell: “Tortuga (in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie) was the setting for a number of references to the (Pirates of the Caribbean ride) attraction, including the infamous bride auction, the dunking of the mayor, cut from the film but included among the deleted scenes on the DVD, the inebriated pirates balancing on the kegs of rum, and a drunken buccaneer sleeping it off in a pigsty.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 132)


FACT: During official Disney press junkets and even on Disney’s own produced audio commentary, Pirates of the Caribbean movie producer Jerry Bruckheimer proudly credits Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio with coming up with the unique supernatural pirate story.

Jerry Bruckheimer: “You know you always want to entertain an audience and make a picture that’s unique and different, fresh and we felt we had the opportunity to do that. And I think the only thing we had to be careful of, is the fact the audience would perceive it as being uh, based on Pirates of the Caribbean the, the amusement park ride rather than a movie that stands on its own two feet, with a good story, great characters and themes, so we had to avoid that. I think one way we did that was by hiring Johnny Depp....”, “...so I thought that was an important element to making the picture unique, and the other element, was bringing in (Ted) Elliot and (Terry) Rossio who rewrote the script, and changed it to having cursed pirates and pirates who turn into skeletons in the moonlight, and have to return treasure rather than steal a treasure. I thought that was all very fresh so those elements to me made it very entertaining.” (2003 - Disney - Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl DVD - Audio commentary)

Q: “When people heard you were making a movie based on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney everyone thought it would be horrible.”

Jerry Bruckheimer: “Guess what? You’re not the only one. I thought the same thing. They called me and said they had the script for Pirates of the Caribbean and they wanted me to read it and produce it for them and I said “Oh God, I can’t do this.” There goes my, whatever career I have left. And I read the script and it was okay, you know, and it was nice, romantic, adventure, drama, but it just wasn’t unique enough to get me to go see it and then we met with Terry and Ted, Elliott and Rossio, and they came up with this great idea about these cursed pirates that turned into skeletons in the moonlight and they had to put a treasure back and I thought that’s wonderful. Then I got involved, because of them really. And they’re so clever, they wrote Shrek, and they’re just clever writers. When you watch the movie everything kind of relates.” (2003 - Latinoreview & Disney)

Jerry Bruckheimer: “Once Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot got involved, it got me very excited. They had a unique vision. The script that Disney had given us originally was a good, straight-ahead pirate movie, which I felt wasn’t unique enough in the marketplace. I thought it would be perceived as another one of the kind of movies that Disney had been making based on their rides - The Country Bears and Haunted Mansion. We brought in Terry and Ted and they said, ‘What if you make the pirates turn into skeletons in the moonlight and they want to return a treasure rather than steal a treasure?’ I said, “that’s unique, it’s different, it’s fresh.” (2006 - Film Fantasy & Disney)


FACT: To date, the Walt Disney Company has never filed anything which declared Marc Davis, nor Claude Coats, nor Francis X. Atencio as being responsible for a supernatural pirate story for either a Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction or for a Pirates of the Caribbean movie. In 2003, the Walt Disney Company professionally submitted, credited and celebrated Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio as the ones who are solely responsible for the unique supernatural pirate story.

FACT: In conjunction with the release of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Disney was preparing the publication of a book titled “Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies” written by Disney employee Jason Surrell, edited by Disney employees, signed off by Disney employees and published by Disney. Notably, in the very beginning of this official Disney book, on page four, Disney did not tribute nor credit legendary artist Marc Davis who is monumental with the creation of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attractions. Neither did they credit Francis X. Atencio or Claude Coats for anything. Instead they tribute, credit and thank Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio twice, celebrating that it was Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio’s ghost story.

“This book is for X. Atencio, Harriet Burns, Alice Davis, and Blaine Gibson; artists, Imagineers, friends. And for Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, whose ghost story made us believe all over again.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 4)






FACT: In 2004, about a year before their official book went to press, Disney was alerted of my copyright infringement claims against them for evidently plagiarizing my unique supernatural pirate story. Then in October 2005, nine months after I had filed my first lawsuit against Disney, is when Disney published their official Pirates of the Caribbean book in which they proclaimed that it was providing the “truth” about its Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, declaring that they already had the materials of the same unique supernatural pirate story including “cursed pirates” who turn into “living skeletons” in moonlight that preexisted and had also predated my 1994 published derivative work of my supernatural pirate story.

This is the opening quote from the official Disney Pirates of the Caribbean book: “Never before has The Walt Disney Company revealed so much history, debunked so much mystery, and told the true below-the-seas tale of the swashbuckling scalawags.” (2005 & 2006 - opening front cover in Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies written by Disney employee Jason Surrell - and signed off by Marty Sklar”)

However, especially since my claims, the facts and evidence exposes and proves that Disney, working with credited writers Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, together had engaged in deceitful misdirection with which to deliberately trivialize and attribute my uniquely original creative work to the talents of the “Disney Legends” of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, notably Marc Davis and Francis X. Atencio. A close examination of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book and all evidence exposes and proves that certain concocted facts and lies were purposely edited into particular pages, notably 23, 50, 56, 81, 86, 87 and 132 in the book.

As documented, the Walt Disney Company, together with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, have deliberately concocted facts and lies with which to proclaim in various interviews, and in the Pirates of the Caribbean book, on Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio’s personal website, in the legal proceeding documents, in their defense evidence and within their sworn testimony that there always was a story in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork, and that story is about pirates who stole a treasure that they didn’t know was cursed and because of that, the pirates are “cursed pirates” and are “living skeletons”, pirates who transform into skeletal pirates and back again. In their own published book, Disney also deliberately altered and switched certain pieces of evidence with which to make it appear that Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio were following Marc Davis’s designs and proposed concepts, of which either had never existed or are not what they claimed it to be. As documented, all this was done to threaten me, making the fraudulent claim to the court, its shareholders and the public, that Disney already had the same supernatural pirate story, and that not only did it preexisted, that it also predated my 1994 published derivative work of my supernatural pirate story. Because of their corrupt acts, together, Jason Surrell, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have made Walt Disney, Marc Davis, Francis X. Atencio, Tony Baxter, Bruce Gordon, Tom Fitzgerald, Bob Baranick, Stuart Beattie, Jerry Bruckheimer and even Keira Knightley all out to be ignorant liars. Furthermore, due to them intentionally inserting deliberate concocted facts and lies among the untouched truthful facts which remain within the Pirates of the Caribbean book, Jason Surrell now greatly contradicts himself throughout the same book. Yet despite on what the book contained, Marty Sklar, who had assisted and supervised Jason Surrell, and who is a supporter of Michael Eisner’s regime, signed off on the book. The book which was first released in October 2005, was purposely reprinted again in November 2006 and continues to be solicited.





Then in April 2007, the Walt Disney Company together with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio intentionally took these deliberately concocted facts and lies and used them within their official legal document titled: “Defendant’s First Set of Requests of Admissions” dated April 27, 2007 with which to again claim that Disney had the materials of the same unique supernatural pirate story including “cursed pirates” who turn into “living skeletons”, that preexisted and had also predated my 1994 published derivative work of my supernatural pirate story. Then mixing it with additional misdirection, they firmly threaten me that if I didn’t end my lawsuit by May 18, 2007, (a day before the Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End premiere), Disney would get the court to dismiss my case and hit me with enormous fees, sanctions and expenses. Especially because of their intentional fraudulent and blatant corrupt acts, and malicious threats, there was no doubt that the Walt Disney Company would continue to do whatever it took to silence the truth and wrongly financially destroy me.


CHAPTER - 3) Prove Walt Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction has no story:

FACT: Disney’s official company archives has documents including original scripts, pages of dialogue, notes and artwork which itself proves that Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction as well as its varied conceptual artwork and proposals has no story and that it’s just a series of experiences and situations, a collection of things that are usually associate with pirate lore, such as haunted caverns, a storm, shipwreck remnants, skeletal remains of pirates, treasure, a pirate ship attack, pillaging, plundering, sacking and burning up a town, lawlessness, rowdiness, drunkenness and rum. Even on page 29 in Disney’s own official Pirates of the Caribbean book confirms this.

FACT: When providing facts and history about the ride attraction, legendary artist Marc Davis, who is monumental with the creation of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attractions, along with Stuart Beattie who is one of the four credited writers on the 2003 Pirates of the Caribbean movie, its producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and even its credited director Gore Verbinski, all together confirm that Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction has no story. Even on page 30 in Disney’s own official Pirates of the Caribbean book had published a Marc Davis quote that confirmed this.


Ted Elliott: “Marc Davis of course was the, one of the (Disney) imagineers who are, actually the guy who really created the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.” (2003 - Disney - Curse of The Black Pearl DVD audio commentary)

Terry Rossio: “Marc Davis and, of course, Walt Disney did an amazing job. (2003 - Writingstudio & Disney)

Marc Davis: “Walt agreed and I certainly agreed that this type of show (Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction) is not a story-telling medium.” (1997 - Scott Wolf: Mouseclubhouse.com)

Marc Davis: “He (Walt Disney) didn’t like the idea of telling stories in this medium (ride attractions). It’s not a story telling medium. But it does give you experiences. You experience the idea of pirates. You don’t see a story that starts at the beginning and then ends up with, ‘by golly, they got the dirty dog.’ It wasn’t that way.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book page 30 - which is taken from - Disney News)

Marc Davis: “And this isn't really a story telling medium. It's a uh, a medium where uh, you're giving experiences, flash this, flash that, and everything would be, you know, in that one subject matter." (E-Ticket - Haunted Mansion)

Francis X. Atencio: “One of the challenges in our rides is that you have no beginning and no end.” (Official Haunted Mansion book by Jason Surrell - page 30)

Marc Davis: “...All of these attractions is that they are a series of experiences. You aren’t telling a story in the Haunted Mansion anymore than you are trying to tell a story in the Pirates of the Caribbean. You’re showing some pirates in a lot of interesting situations, but you don’t really have a beginning or an ending. They’re a series of situations, not a story.” (1989: E-Ticket issue 7 - pages 9 - 10 or in archived PDF file it’s on pages 11-12)

Stuart Beattie: “You know the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride does not have its own story, just has vignettes. So right from the beginning we weren’t looking to make a movie out of the story of the ride. We were very much looking to make uh, a story that stood on its own that uh, had little scenes or vignettes from the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride that you could wink at. And, and uh you know give the audience a laugh.” (2003 - Disney - Curse of The Black Pearl DVD audio commentary)

Jerry Bruckheimer: “The homage is to, to the ride in the movie are, you know a combination of what the writers added to the screenplay. And what Gore (Verbinski -the director) thought was, I guess inherent to the story, and I think that’s really important, you can’t just throw in reference to the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride, they’re, they are like islands onto themselves, they have no bearings in telling the story. So when we found instance were we could show you a piece of the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride and it worked for the characters in the story, we tried to do it and that’s exactly how they are done.” (2003 - Disney - Curse of The Black Pearl DVD audio commentary)

Gore Verbinski: “...when I first heard, you know pirate movie, I was like (positively) yeah, and then, based on the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride, it was like (negatively) wo-wo, that's a two hour advertisement for a theme park.” “Well it’s, it's you know been such a completely dead genre. I was nervous. I mean I, I was nervous because what's the story?” (2003 - Disney - Curse of The Black Pearl DVD audio commentary)

FACT: In promoting the Pirates of the Caribbean film for the Walt Disney Company, Keira Knightley had also spoke candidly about it and the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction.

Keira Knightley: “Truthfully, I think the (Pirates of the Caribbean) film is so completely removed from the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride. There really isn't anything in the story that is the same as the ride, except for the jail sequences and certain aspects that are homages to the ride.” (Lead actress in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie - 2003 - Ugo.com & Disney)






CHAPTER - 4) Prove Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork has the “skeletal remains” of dead pirates, not “living skeletons”:

Disney Imagineer Francis X. Atencio’s work for Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, including the full audio (as even released by Disney on CD), and well regarded Disney Imagineers Marc Davis, Bruce Gordon, Bob Baranick, Tony Baxter, and two highly praised publications “E-Ticket” and “Theme Park Adventure”, and even Disney’s own published documents and filed copyrights together confirm that Walt Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride, its conceptual artwork, scripts, designs and proposals has no story. It’s a series of experiences and situations related to one subject matter, pirate lore, including showing the “skeletal remains” of dead pirates and their possessions in “deserted, supposedly haunted caverns-grotto” areas before we see the pirates in their heyday, as seen in California, Florida and Tokyo’s version of the ride attraction. In Disneyland Paris, they’ve reversed this, by first showing the pirates in their heyday where they are seen attacking, pillaging, plundering, sacking and burning up a town, and then by showing the skeletal remains of the pirates in the deserted haunted caverns-grotto, where they died long ago. Here are some verifying facts.

E-Ticket - issue 21: “A somber but relaxing passage through the various grottos... Dead Man’s Cove, Hurricane Harbor, the Captain’s Quarters and so forth, shows us the static and skeletal evidence that crime doesn’t pay. Here are luxurious views of vast treasure, tools and weapons, and the rich appointments of pirate life each attended by what’s left of a pirate.” (1995 - E-Ticket issue 21 - page 31)

Tony Baxter: “...because you have all the dead pirates in the beginning..” (1999 - Theme Park Adventure - page 21)

Bruce Gordon: “We start out with pirates as skeletons, they are already dead as you’ve gone into this world...” (2003 - Disney - Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl DVD disk 2 - History of the Attraction)

Bob Baranick: “.....the caverns, where the skeletons are, that from many years ago, have died trying to get the treasure out..” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 109 - which is from Theme Park Adventure pages 40-41)

E-Ticket - issue 32: “...their skeletal remains, crystallized in death at their evil deeds, serve as further warning along the banks of the waterway.”- (1999 - E-Ticket issue 32 - page 24)


FACT: For the promotion of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, the Walt Disney Company had commissioned and created a video documentation surrounding the history of its Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. The Walt Disney Company had two noted employees “Imagineers” Bruce Gordon (project director) and Tom Fitzgerald (Executive Vice President & Senior Creative Executive), both who had worked with the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attractions, and have great knowledge of the ride attractions, present official commentaries. Appearing on video using actual Disneyland Pirates of the Caribbean ride footage and original conceptual artwork, both Bruce Gordon and Tom Fitzgerald proudly detail the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, confirming that by boats, park guests travel through the haunted caverns-grotto areas which displays the various skeletal remains of dead pirates, and then the boats travel into the main area “where now the pirates come to life”, displaying the pirates in their heyday glory where they are seen attacking, pillaging, plundering, sacking and burning up a town. (2003 - Disney - Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl DVD disk 2 - History of the Attraction)

FACT: For the Disneyland Paris version of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, Jason Surrell also confirms that the caverns-grotto contain the “now-extinct pirates”. (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 65)

Further proof it’s the “skeletal remains” of dead pirates, and NOT “living skeletons” in the haunted caverns-grotto areas:

E-Ticket - issue 32: “...the long-ago entrance to the Grotto for the dead pirates who reside there”- (1999 - E-Ticket issue 32 - page 29)

Jason Surrell: “In the final show, the only pirates depicted (in the caverns-grotto) are long dead.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 76)

FACT: Marc Davis loved to drink, and he repeatedly incorporated drinking gags into his creative works. This included his work on The Haunted Mansion, America Sings, The Country Bear Jamboree and Pirates of the Caribbean.

FACT: In Florida’s version of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction features the skeletal remains of two dead pirates seated before a chess board. Then decades later, for Disneyland’s version of the ride attraction and in conjunction of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie’s release, Disney added the skeletal remains of two additional dead pirates also positioned with a chess board. This was placed next to the skeletal remains of the other two pirates in the drinking gag display. In Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean book on page 71, Jason Surrell confirms that these are the skeletal remains of pirates who had died. (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 71)


CHAPTER - 5) Prove the Haunt of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction:

It is a documented fact that the area called the “caverns” or “grotto”, which contain the skeletal remains of the long dead pirates and their possessions, are deserted and is supposed to be haunted, complete with a “talking skull”, “ghostly voices” and a harpsichord organ that plays by itself.


THE SKELETAL REMAINS: It is a documented fact that the caverns-grotto area containing the skeletal remains of the pirates was never originally designed to be part of the original ride attraction. They were greatly reduced in the Florida’s version of the ride attraction. In the Tokyo Disneyland version of the ride attraction, it has nearly all of the skeletal remains displays as seen in the California version. At the Disneyland Paris version of the ride attraction, guests first see the pirates in their heyday where they are attacking, pillaging, plundering, sacking and burning up the town and then enter the deserted haunted caverns-grotto area that contains the various skeletal remains of the long dead pirates.

Jason Surrell: “Walt’s subsequent direction to fill its original basement location with caves or something.” “X Atencio’s script was a practical way to make up for any narrative complications brought on by the sudden inclusion of the haunted caverns. ”(2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book page 86)

Jason Surrell: “...the original basement location...” “...ultimately home to a network of haunted caverns, and the Ghostly Grotto transition tunnel that connects it to the mammoth show building....” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 29)

Scott Weitz: “Imagineers would magically remold this 'empty' basement into the Pirate Grotto, a labyrinth of aquatic caverns, waterfalls and stony hideouts....” “... the Transition Tunnel, connected the haunted lair of decaying pirate remains to the historic recreation of living pirates.” (2003-2008 - Etixland.com tribute website)

Jason Surrell: “The grotto was something of a hasty addition to Pirates of the Caribbean.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 77)

Jason Surrell: “...haunted grotto...” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 131)

Jason Surrell: “...a network of haunted caverns.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 50)

Jason Surrell: “(California version)...the haunted caverns prologue”, “(Florida version)...the shortened haunted-grotto scenes”, “haunted caverns” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 55)

Tony Baxter: “(Paris version)...the haunted caverns, filled with the treasure that has thus far proved so elusive.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - pages 64 & 65)

Terry Rossio: “...the haunted caves.” (2003 - Writingstudio & Disney)

Jason Surrell: (Freely referred to the dead pirates in the haunted caverns-grotto as) “lost souls” and as being in a graveyard “Island of Lost Souls” and “the dead Pirate” Captain as seen, in the “graveyard of lost souls.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - pages 56 and 79).

Jason Surrell: “...in a graveyard of haunted caverns.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 87)

Jason Surrell: “(Paris version)...in a network of haunted caverns filled with the buccaneers’ earthly remains.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 106)


THE TALKING SKULL GAG: It is a documented fact that a “talking skull” - is part of the area of the deserted caverns-grotto that is “haunted” by the dead pirates who died long ago. In the California and Tokyo versions of the ride attraction, this “talking skull” is at the entrance to the deserted haunted caverns-grotto. In Florida it was near the end of the deserted haunted caverns-grotto. In Paris, it is at the end of the deserted haunted caverns-grotto. (Is it haunted appearing to talk, or is it the light playing tricks?)

Jason Surrell: “A talking skull affixed to the wall overhead issues a series of ominous admonitions that culminates with the chilling prophecy, Dead men tell no tales.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 76)

Jason Surrell: “...the last thing guests see (Disneyland Paris version) before disembarking is the attraction’s signature talking skull embedded in the rocks overhead, and it delivers the now-extinct pirates’ ominous parting message. Dead men tell no tales.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 65)

Rick West: “..(skull) appears to speak.” (1999 - Theme Park Adventure - page 5)


THE HARPSICHORD GAG: It is a documented fact that in the California and Paris versions of the ride attraction, in the deserted haunted caverns-grotto area, there is a harpsichord organ that is playing by itself.

Disney’s Official Record Album: “We pass Dead Man’s Cove, a cave’s eye view of a hurricane and the crew’s quarters. Then, in the elegant apartment for the captain, a ghostly version of the pirates theme song - Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life For Me) is heard coming from a player-less organ.” (1968 - Disney)

Jason Surell: “A nearby harpsichord plays the now-familiar pirate anthem as the bateaux (boat of the ride attraction) glide on into the grotto.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 83)


THE GHOSTLY VOICES: It is a documented fact that various pieces of narration “ghostly voices” about these long dead pirates was supposed to be heard throughout the “haunted” caverns-grotto area, but were cut from the final ride attraction. It is a documented fact that throughout the caverns-grotto, and during the passage through the dark tunnel, before the guests enters into the main show building, where the pirates are seen attacking, pillaging, plundering, sacking and burning up a town, a few pieces of original narration was still heard. These “ghostly voices” which echo throughout the “deserted” and “haunted” caverns-grotto area, give warnings using “fear” such as “dead men tell no tales” and as a warning not to touch the pirate’s amassed treasure.

It’s a documented fact that from its inception, proposals, conceptual artwork, scripts and designs, and through various completed versions, there were no “cursed pirates” in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. It was the pirates themselves who cursed the treasure as a warning for no one to touch their earthly possessions. It’s a documented fact that the actual script for the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction written by Imagineer Francis X. Atencio, and even the full audio (as released by Disney on CD), proves that after they plundered the treasure, it was the pirates themselves who cursed the treasure as a warning to those entering their final resting place.

Chris Tietz: “That’s where you enter the haunted caverns, and that’s when you first hear Dead men tell no tales.” ( 2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 64)

Jason Surrell: “A ghostly voice warns that “Dead men tell no tales”, hinting at the ultimate fate of the pirates...” “In the Disneyland original, the cursed treasure lies hidden deep within the haunted caverns, never to be removed....” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - pages 106 & 107)

Official Pirates of the Caribbean Ride CD: “Ghostly voices”- (2000 - CD Audio track # 16 - Disney Enterprises)

Disney Ride Attraction: “Ghostly voice # 1” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 79)

Jason Surrell: “Each scene in the grotto sequence originally featured ghostly narration and even witty dialogue for its skeletal performers, performed by Paul Frees (Voice # 1) and J. Pat O’Malley (Voice # 2) in what was to be a ghostly counterpoint to (Paul) Free’s recurring warning, “Dead men tell no tales.” Walt (Disney) and his Imagineers ultimately concluded that the moody visuals spoke for themselves and packed more punch without dialogue.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 79)

Ghostly voices written by Francis X. Atencio: “...and the treacherous act what did them in. Unsuspectin’ rogues, unmindful... dead men tell no tales.” (Actual script 1967 - see Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 79)

Ghostly voices written by Francis X. Atencio: “Dead men tell no tales.”... “The walls o' this deserted berth once quick with the sound o' coarse laughter and bawdy songs.”... “Dead men tell no tales.” (Actual script / recording 1967)

Ghostly voices written by Francis X. Atencio: “Shipshape this anchorage for pleasure-seekin’ rogues ...Aye! After months at sea, facin’ the perils o’their adventurous trade ...they was inclined to traffic their ill-gotten wealth for the pleasure of a lovely lassie’s voice and... Dead men tell no tales!” (Actual script 1967 - see Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 81)

Ghostly voices written by Francis X. Atencio: “No fear have ye of evil curses, sez you? Ah.. properly warned ye be, sez I ...” ‘Who know's when that evil curse will strike the greedy beholders of this bewitched treasure.” “Dead men tell no tales.” (Actual script / recording 1967 - see Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 86).

Ghostly voices written by Francis X. Atencio: “...and cursed it be. Cursed by the black-hearted rogues what left it. Who knows what evil spell lurks 'neath each cursed chest.” “Dead men tell no tales.” (Actual script / recording 1967 - & 2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 84)

Written by Marty Sklar: “And here’s part of the cast of sixty-six life size pirates and their ladies. A lineup worthy of the name rogue’s gallery.” (1967 - Pirates in the Park special on the Pirates of the Caribbean DVD second disc -aka Wonderful World of Color aka “Disneyland from Pirates of the Caribbean to the World of Tomorrow”..)

Jason Surrell: “The Rogue’s Gallery was now dubbed the Pirate Wax Museum” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 22)


THE UNUSED GHOST EFFECT HAUNTING GAG:

It is a documented fact as Marc Davis detailed the creation, his designs and function of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attractions, Marc Davis revealed to “E-Ticket” (Jack Janzen / Leon Janzen) that he proposed doing a “ghost effect” haunting gag in Florida. As Marc Davis gave this interview to E-Ticket, he showed a particular piece of sketched artwork he did (shown in E-Ticket - issue 32 - the noted 1999 Pirates of the Caribbean issue, on page 15 ), which distinctively shows the skeletal remains of a dead pirate and a “ghost effect” haunting gag. Thus in the haunted caverns-grotto area, guests would have seen the skeletal remains of the dead pirates, and the “ghost effect” haunting gag involving the skeletal remains of a dead pirate, and then continue on to see the pirates in their heyday attacking, pillaging, plundering, sacking and burning up the town as even Jason Surrell confirms in the “Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies” book.

Jason Surrell: “So this casual off hand remark by Walt Disney winds up being one of the most beloved scenes in the show, the haunted caverns. And then they figured what do we do with these caves and then that evolved into the skeletons and you´re seeing the ultimate fate of the pirates before you go back and see them in their heyday.” (2005 - MouseTunes.com & Disney)

Jason Surrell: “Although Marc Davis couldn’t make as many enhancements as he would have liked, sketches hint at the Pirates of the Caribbean that could have been. One proposed scene would have bridged the narrative gap between the pirates yo-ho heyday (attacking, pillaging, plundering, sacking and burning up the town) and the grisly fate awaiting them in the haunted grottoes but alas, Marc’s Island of Lost Souls never made it off his drawing board.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 56)

Marc Davis: “Here’s something I tried to do for Florida ... a pirate that would turn into a skeleton. It’s a sort of Pepper’s ghost effect. Florida was going to have a kind of island, and this stuff was never done.” (Marc Davis shows his sketch of this, a ghost effect haunting gag over the skeletal remains of a dead pirate.) (1999: E-Ticket - issue 32, page 15)







CHAPTER - 6) Prove Concocted Facts & Lies - Part 1:

It is a documented fact that the caverns-grotto in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attractions are deserted and haunted. For the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction in Florida, Marc Davis proposed doing a “ghost effect” haunting gag involving the skeletal remains of a pirate which he showed his sketched artwork of it to E-Ticket - issue 32, page 15. This “ghost effect” uses a technique called the “Pepper’s Ghost”.

FACT: The “Pepper’s Ghost” is an old theatrical trick that uses a sheet of glass to reflect an image, creating a ghost image in a different area. This “ghost effect” haunting gag that Marc Davis proposed doing for the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction is the same type of ghost effect haunting gag - “Pepper’s Ghost” - that is used in the ballroom party scene in Disney’s Haunted Mansion, of which Marc Davis also worked on at the same time.





FACT: It was only after my claims against them that Disney took the quote that Marc Davis gave to E-Ticket issue 32, (page 15), where he specifically talks about this “ghost effect” haunting gag, and they deliberately edited and altered it. Disney then deceitfully and fraudulently assigned it to a completely different piece of artwork from their company archive. It was from this concocted combination that Disney purposely generated several official statements with which to work hand in hand with their other concocted facts and lies.





It is a documented fact that the Marc Davis quote from E-Ticket issue 32 page 15, which Disney deliberately edited and altered, actually refers to a ghost effect haunting gag involving a pirate’s skeletal remains. Yet only since my claims against them, Disney deliberately concocted facts and lies from the few words that Marc Davis used when he described to E-Ticket magazine the ghost effect haunting gag “resetting”, going back to “step 1", as detailed on his sketched artwork.





FACT: Nine months after I had filed my first lawsuit against Disney, is when Disney first published their official Pirates of the Caribbean book. However, a close examination of Disney’s official Pirates of the Caribbean book and all evidence exposes and proves that certain concocted facts and lies were purposely edited into particular pages, notably 23, 50, 56, 81, 86, 87 and 132 in the book with which to fraudulently claim that there always was a story in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork, and that story is about pirates who stole a treasure that they didn’t know was cursed and because of that, the pirates are “cursed pirates” and are “living skeletons”, pirates who transform into skeletal pirates and back again.

FACT: Only since my claims against them for stealing my supernatural pirate story, and only after deceptively editing, altering and manipulating what Marc Davis was actually talking about in a different interview, is when Disney suddenly proclaimed that the old man with the treasure chests in the archive painting (as shown on page 56) is actually a pirate who transforms into a skeleton and back again.






FACT: While the legal proceedings were playing out, Disney had heavily promoted Jason Surrell and the Pirates of the Caribbean book, and under Disney’s orchestrated direction, Jason Surrell repeatedly proclaimed that he extensively researched the history of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and that by writing Disney’s official Pirates of the Caribbean book that he pretty much wrote the biography of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction in order to preserve its history.

It is a documented fact that since October 2005 Royce Mathew has repeatedly showed proof that Disney had deliberately lied and even exposed that the company archived painting (as shown on page 56), was actually of “Treasure Island-Ben Gunn” and that Disney had concocted facts and lies by deceitfully altering part of a brief quote taken from an unrelated interview with Marc Davis and fraudulently assigned it to the painting. Yet Disney, Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio and Jerry Bruckheimer (films/Inc.) continued on with the fraud and had fused their concocted facts and lies along with the official Pirates of the Caribbean book into the legal proceeding documents, sworn testimony and defense evidence with which to maliciously threaten and financially destroy Royce Mathew, prevent the evidence from going before a jury and to alter the public’s perception of the truth.

FACT: November 2006, several months after Royce Mathew had re-filed his lawsuit, Disney had purposely published a second updated edition of their Pirates of the Caribbean book that contained all those same pages with the exact same concocted facts and lies. As documented, Disney continued to proudly sell and promote their official Pirates of the Caribbean book throughout the legal proceedings and still continuing afterwards.

FACT: In 2009, on page 74 in yet another official Disney book, titled The Art of Walt Disney World Resort, it exposes that the painting of the old man with the treasure chests in their archive painting (as shown on page 56 in their Pirates of the Caribbean book) was indeed a proposal for Treasure Island - Ben Gunn. The Art of Walt Disney World Resort book also exposes that this painting of Treasure Island - Ben Gunn was done by Collin Campbell.





It’s a documented fact that not only wasn't this Marc Davis' artwork, Disney deliberately cropped the Treasure Island - Ben Gunn painting, cutting out the sunlit foliage from the upper right side with which to fraudulently claim that it was a pirate transforming into a skeleton in moonlight. Disney had also deliberately took portions of information that were provably false and had integrated it into their concocted collection of lies and fraudulent statements. Then Marty Sklar had signed off on the concocted facts and lies surrounding this painting as well as signing off on other concocted facts and lies that were deliberately incorporated within the Pirates of the Caribbean book. Then Disney, Marty Sklar, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had purposely used all this in both the legal proceeding documents, their defense evidence and within their sworn testimony.

FACT: The Walt Disney Company together with Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio have purposely concocted facts and lies including incorporating one particular sentence that Marc Davis gave during his entire interview with “E-Ticket”/Janzen (issue 32 page 15) and the Treasure Island-Ben Gunn painting.

FACT: Royce Mathew had exposed throughout the legal proceedings starting back in 2005, with Disney being notified in official attorney correspondence, then in 2006, and then in 2007 with Disney in house attorneys, head attorney Sandy Litvack, and even CEO Robert Iger all being notified by confirmed email correspondence, and even continuing through 2008 and 2009, that the Walt Disney Company had deliberately committed fraud and had lied to the court and the public especially with the Pirates of the Caribbean book containing the Treasure Island-Ben Gunn painting. Yet instead of conducting any investigation, as documented, Disney maliciously stepped up its continued efforts to prevent the evidence from going before a jury, financially destroy Royce Mathew and continue to alter the public’s perception of the truth.





FACT: Disney’s admission in 2009 along with all of the evidence, proves and confirms that Disney, notably Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar had deliberately concocted facts and lies with which to cover for Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio’s acts of plagiarism and provide fodder for their fraudulent defense.

FACT: Not only did Disney (Jason Surrell under Marty Sklar’s supervision) deliberately altered and assigned a Marc Davis quote to the Treasure Island-Ben Gunn painting with which to concoct facts and lies for Disney’s official Pirates of the Caribbean book, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had also purposely added to the collection of concocted facts and lies.

FACT: Despite that Marc Davis himself had hand wrote on his own original sketch that it’s in the darkness when a “Ghost Pirate” and ghost parrot “fade in” over their skeletons and that Marc Davis had also explained that this utilized a “Pepper’s Ghost effect”, as shown in E-Ticket issue 32 page 15, it was during the legal proceedings when Ted Elliott, under oath, had fraudulently declared that Marc Davis had actually designed this particular conceptual proposal as being a “human becoming skeletal”, and that it was a “skeletal pirate” that transforms into a “flesh and blood” living pirate and that it is documented in both E-Ticket magazine and Disney’s official Pirates of the Caribbean book written by Jason Surrell.

FACT: During the legal proceedings, that the only proof (evidence) that Disney, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had ever presented to substantiate their bold claims was Disney’s official Pirates of the Caribbean book and two copies of E-Ticket issue 32 (page 15), with Disney and Terry Rossio each submitting a copy.





FACT: With Marc Davis having died, and with no copyright proof except for the actual pieces of artwork, Disney, using its employees, such as Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar, as well as utilizing in house archivists at their company archives, they have, and still can, continue to go through various pieces of archived artwork, fraudulently labeling, registering and declaring it as unused proposed supernatural pirate story sequences for the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. Then, as documented, in 2008 and 2009, Disney has gone on to fraudulently declare that Marc Davis “felt” that the success of Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction was due to “strong story and characterization.”


CHAPTER - 7) Prove Disney “finally addressed” the inclusion of the haunted caverns-grotto.

As documented, the haunted caverns-grotto featuring the skeletal remains of the dead pirates was never originally designed to be part of the original Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. Then decades after the original ride attraction opened, and many years after the placement of additional versions of their ride attraction in Florida and Tokyo, as documented, the creation of the Paris version of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction (opened in 1992) would “finally address” any lingering issues created by incorporating the haunted caverns-grotto featuring the skeletal remains of the dead pirates into the original experience. To do this, Disney moved the “pirates in the jail” scene (vignette) that was always featured at the end of the ride, to the beginning of the ride, and in turn, they placed the haunted caverns-grotto featuring the skeletal remains of the dead pirates at the end of the ride attraction. Disney then celebrated that this finally made it clear that the experience had a beginning, where we first experience the pirates, in their heyday, coming to free their comrades who are imprisoned in jail; then a middle where the pirates attack, plunder and burn up the town; and then finally a conclusion, where we experience the aftermath, seeing the skeletal remains of the dead pirates in the haunted caverns-grotto complete with ghostly voices, a harpsichord that plays by itself and a talking skull.


Jason Surell: “In case of Pirates of the Caribbean (Disneyland Paris) that meant turning the experience completely on its head, and in the process, finally addressing any lingering creative issues over those hastily contrived haunted caverns.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - pages 60 & 61)

Jason Surrell: “The Grotto went from a prologue in the Disneyland original to an epilogue with a fitting “crime doesn’t pay” message at Disneyland Paris.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 77)

Jason Surell: (Disneyland Paris version) “...the prologue has become an epilogue, a fitting conclusion to this tale of pillaging and plundering..” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - pages 64)

Tony Baxter: “(Disneyland Paris version) “The concussive sounds turn into the wailing of the wind and a ghostly voice admonishing, “Dead men tell no tales”. The climax then turns into a metaphorical ‘meeting your maker’ epilogue..” “That’s the moral of the story. What good is all the treasure if you’re so frivolous and careless? You can’t spend it if you’re dead. The end result, the whole ‘Crime Doesn’t Pay’ moment takes place at the end.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - pages 64 & 65)

Jason Surrell: “In a fitting coda to the revised story, (Disneyland Paris version) the last thing guests see before disembarking is the attraction’s signature talking skull embedded in the rocks overhead, and it delivers the now-extinct pirates’ ominous parting message. Dead men tell no tales.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 65)

YET MORE SKELETAL REMAINS: After their success with the haunted caverns-grotto placement change to Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction in Paris, Disney then focused on their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction in California. As documented, with which to now provide closure to its original Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction in California, in 1997 Disney had incorporated additional skeletal remains of dead pirates to the end of their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. Now featuring the skeletal remains of dead pirates at both the beginning and the end of their ride attraction, Disney proudly celebrated that this finally brought their original Pirates of the Caribbean experience full circle.

Tony Baxter: “..-so we had an opportunity there to kind of in an abbreviated way, complete the morality of the show in that indeed, the ‘Dead men’ (tell no tales) statement at the beginning literally becomes the prophecy fulfilled at the end, and they don’t make it out.” (Theme Park Adventure - page 24)

Bob Baranick: “So we thought we’d wrap the whole story up at the end...” “...we brought back more of the caverns, where the skeletons are, that from many years ago, have died trying to get the treasure out..” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 109 - which is from Theme Park Adventure pages 40-41)

Jason Surrell: “The skeleton of a pirate that expired struggling to make it up the waterfall with his treasure intact was a significant narrative addition, bringing the story full circle to complement the “Dead men tell no tales” message of the Grotto sequence.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 108)


CHAPTER - 8) Prove Concocted Facts & Lies - Part 2 - Their Fraudulent Bold Claims:

As the facts confirm, the Walt Disney Company, with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have deliberately and shamelessly plowed over decades of Disney’s own factual history, designs, drafts and recorded materials when creating a bogus defense against my serious claims. It was only after being informed of my claims and only after my filing my January 2005 original lawsuit, that the Walt Disney Company (Jason Surrell, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio and signed off by Marty Sklar) even make the well respected late-great artist Marc Davis out to be an ignorant liar who doesn’t know his own creative work.

FACT: For many years, noted Disney Company archivists, historians as well as Marty Sklar himself had assisted the Janzens with their research, contributing to E-Ticket magazine, including and notably for the noted 1999 Pirates of the Caribbean issue 32, in which Marty Sklar had received a thank you from the Janzens in the opening page of their magazine. Meanwhile, Marty Sklar and Walt Disney Imagineering and its research division had also greatly assisted Rick West for his 1999 Theme Park Adventure publication which deals extensively with Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. Yet it was only since my claims against the Walt Disney Company that in 2005 Marty Sklar himself had assisted, supervised and signed off on Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean book which now made Rick West and his Theme Park Adventure book and the Janzens and their E-Ticket magazine all out to be ignorant liars as well.

FACT: It was only after my claims against them that Disney suddenly concocted a statement with which to proudly proclaim that their ride attraction had previously “evolved” from an “experience” and “into the story about cursed pirates”. They have also proclaimed that “since its inception, and in all following incarnations”, the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction was about “pirates ransacking a Caribbean seaport in search of hidden or cursed treasure” and “a buried cursed treasure”. Yet the facts and documents prove that these claims are yet more lies.

FACT: In 2005, two months after Disney was officially notified of my professional legal team, Marty Sklar, through company emails proudly praises Jason Surrell, who was instructed to “focus it on the curse” in the Pirates of the Caribbean book. Meanwhile, Jason Surrell communicated that he was concerned for his job, but boldly added that he wanted a better position. So as documented, the word “cursed” was then deliberately and fraudulently inserted into various pages throughout the Pirates of the Caribbean book. For example, the search for treasure now became the search for “cursed treasure”, and the pirates now became “cursed pirates”.

Just below is a transcript quote from Walt Disney’s own on television camera interview which he personally detailed the “dunking the mayor into the well scene-vignette” from Walt Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean. Then just following it, is the direct quote from Jason Surrell in the official 2005 Pirates of the Caribbean book which was signed off by Marty Sklar, that refers to the exact same “dunking the mayor into the well scene-vignette”. Compare the two quotes and see how after my claims against them, they deceitfully and fraudulently changed it from being about pirates seeking treasure, to it being about pirates seeking a cursed treasure.

Walt Disney: “...now here you see the pirates are dunking the mayor into the well, trying to force him to reveal the hiding places of the town treasure.” (Walt Disney on camera, showcasing his Pirates of the Caribbean - 1967 - which is seen on Pirates in the Park special on the Pirates of the Caribbean DVD disc 2 -aka Wonderful World of Color aka “Disneyland from Pirates of the Caribbean to the World of Tomorrow”..)

Jason Surrell: “..a cutthroat (pirates) pumping and dunking the town’s mayor (into the well) for information about a buried and cursed treasure...” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 50)


FACT: During the legal proceedings, the Walt Disney Company, including Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, never presented any documents of a “supernatural pirate story” including “cursed pirates” or “pirates seeking a cursed treasure” or “living skeletons”, pirates who transform into “skeletal pirates” that existed prior to their involvement for the 2003 movie. The only evidence offered was Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book written by Jason Surrell.

FACT: Despite that Jerry Bruckheimer has repeatedly credited Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio with coming up with the unique supernatural pirate story, and in turn Disney with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio attributed the unique supernatural pirate story to Marc Davis, during the legal proceedings there was absolutely nothing in the boxes of paperwork and evidence that the Walt Disney Company, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio who were all required to provide, had anything to do with or even document any story, characters, “cursed pirates”, “living skeletons”, pirates who transform into skeletal pirates, “pirates seeking a cursed treasure” or anything else which they now claim Pirates of the Caribbean was always about and had always contained.

FACT: From its inception and various conceptual proposals, and then through its opening in 1967 at Disneyland, then through versions in 1973 at Walt Disney World, then in 1983 at Tokyo Disneyland, and then in 1992 at Disneyland Paris, and even during major alterations in 1997 at Disneyland, and continuing past 2003, Walt Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean has no story and it was never about “cursed pirates” nor about “living skeletons”, pirates who transform into skeletal pirates. It is a documented fact that Walt Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean is a collection of things and a series of experiences usually related to pirate lore. Its collection features pirates in their heyday attacking, pillaging, plundering, sacking and burning up a town and the skeletal remains of dead pirates in deserted haunted caverns-grotto.

FACT: In addition to Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork, scripts, designs and proposals having no story, it is a documented fact that in 2000, Disney’s own story development division, which included executive Brigham Taylor, also officially verified that Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction “has no narrative” and that they had to “start from scratch” when they wanted to generate a script for a Pirates of the Caribbean movie. (Disney’s official documents)

FACT: Even though Disney’s own movie executive Brigham Taylor confirmed that Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean has “no narrative” and that Stuart Beattie, Jerry Bruckheimer and even Marc Davis himself confirmed that there is “no story” and despite that all of the evidence confirms this, with their concocted facts and lies, together, Disney, (Jason Surrell, Marty Sklar), Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have also suddenly proclaimed that there always was a story and a narrative in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork, and that story is about pirates who stole a treasure that they didn’t know was cursed and because of that, the pirates are “cursed pirates” and are “living skeletons”, pirates who transform into “skeletal pirates” and back again.

The following is a compiled list of some of their bold claims that were deliberately fused into various interviews, websites, Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean book, the legal proceeding documents, their defense evidence and their sworn testimony. However, there is no proof that their bold claims are true, while decades of history and evidence actually exposes them to be concocted facts and lies. Even some of their own key defense evidence that was provided by Disney, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio also confirms that their own sworn statements to be concocted facts and lies.






Ted Elliott: “We came up with the idea that, if we’re doing this based on the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride, let’s base it on the ride! “ (2003 - Creative Screen Writing magazine & Disney)

Terry Rossio: “Our screenplay uses elements of previous screenplays, yes, but it is also based on the theme park ride, Pirates of the Caribbean, designed by many including the remarkable Marc Davis and Walt Disney.” (Wordplayer September 1, 2006)

Terry Rossio: “The film is really derived from the spirit of the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride, um, and the ride also provides uh, a narrative.” (2003/2004 - Disney - Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl - DVD “The Lost Disk” bonus disk)

Terry Rossio: “As I stated before, the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride clearly has a narrative element. It may have escaped (Disney development executive) Brigham (Taylor), but, yeah, clearly there's a story being told." (Terry Rossio's deposition)

Jason Surrell: “So what’s the story?” “...the experience ultimately evolved into the story of a pirate crew that lays waste to a Caribbean seaport in search of hidden treasure. Little do they know that the treasure carries a terrible curse and that the pirates must pay for their prize with their very souls, spending eternity in a graveyard of haunted caverns.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 87)

Terry Rossio: "One of the most more interesting things about the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride is that a lot of people will go on the ride and understand the ride in terms of a series of vignettes. Oh, I think this is a pretty vignette. Oh, this is the treasure room, et cetera. But as it turns out, there is a narrative in the ride. But what's interesting in that narrative is done in reverse order.” “If you go through the ride, you actually see, you're introduced to these characters who are cursed or who are in various states of dismay from their point of view -- prison, et cetera, et cetera. And what you actually see is the result of having found the treasure, then you come up to the great shot where the ship is attacking, cannons, and they have cannons, there's a lot of things like that." (Terry Rossio's deposition)

Ted Elliott: “The story in the ride is about pirates who fall victim to a cursed treasure that they searched for without knowing it was cursed the story is told backwards: you start out seeing the pirates in their cursed state living skeletons, and then see the events that led to it. So, in a way, the first movie is a sequel to the story in the ride: the pirates trying to remove the curse by returning the treasure they stole. We wanted to recreate/evoke some specific moments from the ride -- the pirate attack on the town being the most obvious. ” - (August 18, 2006 - Wordplayer.com)

Jason Surrell: “Well, it´s amazing in Pirates in particular Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio who have written the scripts for all three of the movies, they felt that there was something in the (ride) attraction that gave the movie its distinction which is the notion of cursed pirates. And in the Disneyland version certainly and also here in Florida if you listen to that piece of narration as you´re going down that long rocky passage way right before you come out in the bombardment scene, if you listen to that narration the concept of the cursed treasure and the effects that it has on those who disturb it is right there.” (2005 - MouseTunes.com & Disney)

Jason Surrell: “Guests encounter a pirate that transforms into a skeleton and back again in a scene, possibly proposed for the boarding area, which was ultimately cut from the final attraction.” - “The effect was far from wasted, however, and the notion of pirates that transform into skeletons and back again would go on to play a major role when the attraction set sail on the big screen thirty years later.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book: page 56)

Ted Elliott: “Well, there actually is a story to the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride. It's about a crew of pirates who find a treasure and then discover it's cursed and it turns them into skeletons. It's told in reverse. You see the end of the story, all the skeletal pirates with the cursed treasure, and then you see their hunt for it. In Disneyland Paris, they've actually flipped it, so that it's in the right order. I can't believe that the French went linear. It's just so bizarre (laughs).” (2006 - Ultimatedisney.com)

Jason Surrell: “Since its inception and in all following incarnations, the (Pirates of the Caribbean) attraction would be about a crew of pirates ransacking a Caribbean seaport in search of hidden or cursed treasure.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 23)

Jason Surrell: “..a cutthroat (pirates) pumping and dunking the town’s mayor for information about a buried and cursed treasure...” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 50)

Jason Surrell: “....these very same cursed pirates first invaded this unsuspecting island colony in search of the legendary treasure” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 86)

Jason Surrell: “The original (Pirates of the Caribbean ride) attraction’s other primary location, the unnamed seaport ransacked by pirates in search of cursed treasure, became Port Royal in the (Pirates of the Caribbean) film.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 132)

Ted Elliott: “The entire idea of the cursed treasure and the cursed pirates, that’s that first part of coming into the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride where you have the skeletons...” (2003/2004 - Disney - Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl - DVD “The Lost Disk” bonus disc)

Jason Surrell: (Tokyo Disneyland) - “...a skeletal pirate Captain reading in bed inside an ornate, subterranean chamber....” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - pages 58-59)

Jason Surrell: “Fairing far better than their cursed comrades are the two skeletal crewmen... ” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 81)

Disney, Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio: “Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction contains” - “skeletal pirates” and “cursed pirates”. (2007 - official legal document)

Ted Elliott together with Terry Rossio: Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction has a narrative and story about (and contains) “cursed pirates”, “living skeletons”, pirates who steal a treasure that they don’t know is cursed and because of that, they end up cursed. That since the story is told in reverse, so for Disneyland Paris they flipped it to have it in the right order, with the “cursed pirates” at the end. (2007 - per their depositions)







CHAPTER - 9) Prove Concocted Facts & Lies - Part 3 - More Lying Under Oath:

Before and during the legal proceedings Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio together had boldly proclaimed that the Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction has a narrative and story about (and contains) “cursed pirates”, and that the skeletal remains of the long dead pirates in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction were actually cursed pirates who are “living skeletons”, who had transformed in the moonlight. Furthermore, Ted Elliott had also declared under oath that Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction has a narrative on the actual audio recordings. Yes, Ted Elliott has proudly declared that these audio recordings confirms their bold claims that Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction actually contains a story about pirates who stole a treasure that they didn't know was cursed, and because of that are now “cursed pirates” and thus they are “living skeletons”.

However, the evidence once again proves that these are lies and that Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have repeated lied under oath.

FACT: The actual Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction scripts, and the audio recordings, and even Disney's own Pirates of the Caribbean book, that was submitted as evidence by the Walt Disney Company, actually proves that the caverns are deserted, and it's haunted by the long dead pirates, who themselves had cursed the treasure.

FACT: The actual scripts and actual audio recordings of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and Disney's own official Pirates of the Caribbean book as well as Theme Park Adventure and E-Ticket issue 7, issue 21 and issue 32, all prove that Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio along with Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar have deliberately concocted facts and have repeatedly lied.

FACT: The actual Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction archived artwork, especially the work which was done by Marc Davis and even the ride attraction itself, also prove that Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio along with Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar have deliberately concocted facts and have repeatedly lied.

FACT: Disney’s own promotional materials of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, even that which Marty Sklar had worked on, also prove that Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio along with Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar have deliberately concocted facts and have repeatedly lied.

FACT: Disney, purposely using Marty Sklar and Jason Surrell together with Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio have deliberately concocted facts and have repeatedly lied and these concocted facts and lies were deliberately fused into Disney’s official Pirates of the Caribbean book and then into the legal proceeding documents, their defense evidence and their sworn testimony with which to prevent the evidence from going before a jury, financially destroy Royce Mathew and to alter the public’s perception of the truth.

FACT: Due to them intentionally inserting deliberate concocted facts and lies among the untouched truthful facts which remain within Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean book, Jason Surrell now greatly contradicts himself throughout the same book.


CHAPTER - 10) Prove Disney Threatens with their Concocted Facts & Lies:

It’s a documented fact that the Walt Disney Company, Jerry Bruckheimer (films/Inc.), Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio “The Defendants” were all represented by the same team of attorneys headed by Sanford “Sandy” Litvack. Sandy Litvack is a close associate of Michael Eisner and has worked for the United States Department of Justice.

In April 2007, armed with their Pirates of the Caribbean book written by Jason Surrell and signed off by Marty Sklar and working in conjunction with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, the Walt Disney Company intentionally used their concocted facts and lies along with additional misdirection with which to maliciously threaten me that if I don’t end my lawsuit by May 18, 2007, that they will have the court hit me with enormous fees, sanctions and expenses. Yes, as Disney, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio were deliberately putting out concocted facts and lies about Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork, the Walt Disney Company, Jerry Bruckheimer (films/Inc.), Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio officially and legally demanded that I “admit” to the court that their concocted facts and lies about Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction were indeed true because Disney has the deliberately concocted evidence which gives the appearance that it was true.

FACT: Despite the facts and evidence proves that Walt Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride, its conceptual artwork, scripts, designs and proposals has no story, and that since its inception, it is a series of situations and experiences related to the subject of pirate lore, and that the “supernatural elements” in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction is because the deserted caverns-grotto are supposed to be haunted, complete with a “talking skull”, “ghostly voices” and a harpsichord that plays by itself, it was during the legal proceedings when the Walt Disney Company, together with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had officially and maliciously demanded that I admit that the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction contained “supernatural elements”, “cursed pirates”, “skeletal pirates” and a “talking skull”. They had deliberately and deceitfully grouped these together with which to continue to fraudulently claim that the “supernatural elements” of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction was about “cursed pirates”, who stole a treasure they didn’t know that was curse, and thus who transform into “living skeletons” - “skeletal pirates”, hence the “talking skull”.

Here are their official legal proceeding statements that the Walt Disney Company together with Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio had drafted and used in conjunction with the Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book as well as with various interviews and publications with which to maliciously threaten and financially destroy me, prevent the evidence from going before a jury, financially profit, dupe investors and purposely alter the court and public’s perception of the truth. (Per official legal materials).






Official Walt Disney Company Legal Document - Item Number 254 states: Admit that Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction contains “supernatural elements”. - (Disney/Sandy Litvack April 27, 2007 - deliberately and deceptively used during legal proceedings against Royce Mathew)

Official Walt Disney Company Legal Document - Item Number 255 states: Admit that Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean movie contains “elements taken from” Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. - (Disney/Sandy Litvack April 27, 2007 - deliberately and deceptively used during legal proceedings against Royce Mathew)

Official Walt Disney Company Legal Document - Item Number 256 states: Admit that Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction contains a “talking skull”. - (Disney/Sandy Litvack April 27, 2007 - deliberately and deceptively used during legal proceedings against Royce Mathew)

Official Walt Disney Company Legal Document - Item Number 257 states: Admit that Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction contains “cursed pirates”. - (Disney/Sandy Litvack April 27, 2007 - deliberately and deceptively used during legal proceedings against Royce Mathew)

Official Walt Disney Company Legal Document - Item Number 258 states: Admit that Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction contains “skeletal pirates”. - (Disney/Sandy Litvack April 27, 2007 - deliberately and deceptively used during legal proceedings against Royce Mathew)


FACT: In Disney’s own publications for the promotion of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Disney, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had already identified “elements” of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction that appear in the movie. Here is a list of the “elements”, aka “ride references”, aka “homages” that were used for the Pirates of the Caribbean movie - Pirate ship attacking the seaport and town / fort wall with cannon fire; prison/jail with dog holding key in its mouth; pillaging, plundering, sacking and burning up the town; drinking gag; Buy a Bride / Take a Wench auction; dunking a man into the well; pirate balancing on barrel; redhead sexy woman; drunk pirates singing and misfiring/target practicing; chasing; rum pouring out of barrels shot up with bullet holes; drinking out of holes in rum barrels; man sleeping with pig; animals; crab; a backstabbed skeleton; cavern of treasure; song Yo-Ho; strike your colors you bloody cockroaches. (Dunk the guy into the well, tied man shaking, pirates shooting, a woman chases a man, pirates drinking were edited out but used in the second movie).

FACT: As documented, the Walt Disney Company never proclaimed in any of their official generated legal documents that their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction or its conceptual proposals had a story. Instead the Walt Disney Company, was deliberately vague about the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, purposely declaring (Item Number 255) that the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl movie “contains elements” taken from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. Meanwhile, as documented, Disney together with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, had also never presented nor offered any list of what those “elements” were, while outright deceitfully claiming that because “elements” of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction appear in a movie titled Pirates of the Caribbean, that features the same supernatural pirate story, five key characters, sequences, structural blueprints, dialogue and fictional inventions, which I had created, pitched and that even appears in my 1994 creative work, then therefore the entire creative property belongs to the Walt Disney Company.

FACT: As documented, Disney together with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had never declared, offered, nor presented any evidence of actually having a supernatural pirate story, which includes certain sequences, structural blueprints, dialogue, characters (evil pirate captain, eccentric pirate, blacksmith, protagonist, one eye comic relief pirate who goes after the protagonist) and fictional inventions including, cursed pirates of the Black Pearl pirate ship; pirates who don't want anything to do with the plunder/return a treasure because they are cursed, with effects of the curse they endure is fully revealed by moonlight, a gold medallion on a gold chain with mystic properties -able to summon/call especially near the ocean and other fictional inventions - of which are all my original work, as published in 1994/1995, that existed long prior to 2003.

FACT: As documented, Disney together with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had also never declared to the court that they had any copyright or proof of already having any such material involving a supernatural pirate story, cursed pirates and skeletal pirates. As documented, the only so-called proof fused into the legal proceeding documents, their defense evidence and sworn testimony was solely comprised of misdirection and the deliberately concocted facts and lies about the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork as published in certain interviews, on Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio’s personal website and in Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies” book. (Per official documents)

FACT: During the legal proceedings, Disney presented their official Pirates of the Caribbean book as proof that their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual proposals has a supernatural pirate story about “cursed pirates”, who stole a treasure they didn’t know that was curse, and thus transform into “living skeletons”, “skeletal pirates”, hence the talking skull. Meanwhile Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio gave sworn testimony also declaring that Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual proposals has a supernatural pirate story about “cursed pirates”, who stole a treasure they didn’t know that was cursed, and thus transform into “living skeletons”, “skeletal pirates”, hence the talking skull. Then together, the Walt Disney Company, Jerry Bruckheimer Films/Inc., Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, all demanded, that I admit that their concocted facts and lies were true. (Per official documents)

FACT: During the legal proceedings, I, Royce Mathew, refused to admit that their concocted facts and lies were true. As documented, I had pleaded for intervention, even providing verifiable information of what Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio and Jason Surrell (supervised, assisted and signed off by Marty Sklar) were deliberately doing, but all of my pleas were ignored and I was maliciously threaten to dismiss my lawsuit by May 18, 2007. (per company emails)


CHAPTER - 11) Prove it Vanished, it Fried, it was Wiped Clean & it was Stolen:

In 2005, two months after Disney was officially notified of my professional legal team, and soon after Jason Surrell was instructed by Marty Sklar to alter the Pirates of the Caribbean book, all of the original Disney/Jason Surrell and Wendy Lefkon /Jody Revenson computers, files, drives surrounding these provably fraudulent and concocted facts and lies that appear in the book, which are being used to claim that Disney had the materials of the same unique supernatural pirate story that preexisted and had also predated my 1994 published derivative work of my supernatural pirate story, have an interesting bond. In 2005 Jason Surrell had notified Jody Revenson/Wendy Lefkon (other Disney employees at Disney Editions) that “all” of his “files” had “vanished”, and their response to him was that their key computer with the same files had “fried” during the same week, with Jody adding that “there must have been something in the air”. (Per company emails)

FACT: During the legal proceedings, it is exposed that the key pages which contain certain concocted facts and lies as published in Disney’s official “Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies” book seemed to have appeared out of thin air, for anything to do with how they were created and what research was used to make such bold claims had all “vanished” and “fried” in the same week, or that they had never existed.

FACT: As for the two computers used for the Pirates of the Caribbean movie belonging to credited writers Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, in 2007 during the legal proceedings, Ted Elliott had stated that he could not produce his computer, claiming that he had first wiped the hard drive before donating it, adding that he couldn’t remember if he gave it to a charity or his brother. Meanwhile Terry Rossio had declared that he also could not produce his computer. Terry Rossio claimed that the key original computer containing the Pirates of the Caribbean work, which was important evidence, was stolen. Terry Rossio also stated that he didn’t file a police report because the station was busy and he didn’t want to wait. (Per their depositions.)

FACT: Also during the legal proceedings Ted Elliott had claimed that all responsibility of their past computer files belonged to his partner Terry Rossio. Yet, meanwhile, Terry Rossio declared that they only did backup of the computer files about once every six months and thus they lost a lot of their past Pirates of the Caribbean files because he did not do back up in a timely fashion. (Per their depositions.)


CHAPTER - 12) Prove “Steal Stuff” & misdirection:

FACT: On several occasions, Disney was notified of their collective corrupt acts, including that Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, in the original unedited audio commentary done for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl DVD, have admitted that they “steal stuff” (sequences) from other people’s creative work for use in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise; and if they don’t immediately use these sequences taken from other people’s creative work, it just goes “up on the shelf” to be later used. Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had stated this as they were bragging about how they took the “walking underwater under the overturned rowboat” sequence from Warner Bros. The Crimson Pirate movie and used it in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Yet Disney never strayed from its putrid practices. (Disney deleted Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio’s “steal stuff”, “up on the shelf” and The Crimson Pirate admissions from the published DVD audio commentary feature.) Then in 2006-2007, Disney had additional edition printings of their “Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies” book, followed by their official threats using these concocted facts and lies.

FACT: As Disney together with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio were putting out concocted facts and lies, in 2007, they unleashed an unscrupulous network of various misdirection tactics, demanding an accounting of every file, hard drive and printer that I ever owned. Disney kept asking for copies of the copies of my personal and work related files which have no bearing in the case. Meanwhile, important verified dated files, including files that matched to 1992 correspondence Disney had in their possession of which Michael Eisner had drafted involving me, Royce Mathew, on his personal stationary “Michael D. Eisner”, in his own handwriting, as well 1990's original files showing my creative process involving my fictional inventions, including cursed pirates, the moonlight, Aztec design, the hunger/pleasures, “TURNER” and all additional script files, copyrights and published materials were all discredited by Disney and their attorneys. Instead, Disney unscrupulously made issues that I had purchased, stored and deleted personal files using Norton’s Utilities from a 2006 external drive and my 2003 computer, and even though they weren’t suppose to be accessed, and have no bearing in the case, Disney deceitfully used misdirection, focusing in on my personal and work files for my lawsuit while they also deliberately used my personal files, such as making an issue by declaring that I was a “nude art model in New York City”. Disney also sinisterly made an issue over my family including about my dead father, with Sandy Litvack repeatedly asking “how my father died”, and if I loved my dead father.

FACT: During the legal proceedings, the Walt Disney Company, together with Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio and Jerry Bruckheimer Films/Inc. also falsely accused me, without any proof, of personally showing up at the door of Johnny Depp in California.

FACT: Despite all of the evidence, including computer files, witnesses and materials as well as any dispute issues which should have gone before a jury, and that it was Disney who together with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had deliberately concocted facts and lies, destroyed, discarded, tamper with, purposely adulterated, concealed, deliberately made false entries on documents which were absolutely crucial and relevant to unfolding litigation, and that it was Disney, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, who together proclaimed that their original whole computers, files and drives had either “fried”, “vanished” “was wiped clean”, or was “stolen”, it was Disney, Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio and Jerry Bruckheimer Films who then together unscrupulously declared that it was I who did a “spoilage of evidence”, and with their official April 27, 2007 demand that I admit that their concocted facts and lies were true, stated that I will be hit with enormous fees, expenses and sanctions if I didn’t dismiss my lawsuit by May 18, 2007. (Per original official audio & materials).






CHAPTER - 13) Recipe Flow Chart:

WALT DISNEY’S PIRATES: It is a documented fact that for over forty years Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, its conceptual artwork, scripts, designs and proposals has no story. It features the Wicked Wench pirate ship, and a series of experiences related to one subject matter - pirate lore, including displaying the “skeletal remains” of dead pirates and their possessions in deserted, supposedly haunted “caverns-grotto” areas and also displaying the pirates in their heyday were they are attacking, pillaging, plundering, sacking and burning up a town.

ROYCE MATHEW’S PIRATES: It is a documented fact that my unique supernatural pirate story, my structural blueprints, “sequences”, characters and fictional inventions which is about “cursed pirates” of the Black Pearl pirate ship; pirates who don't want anything to do with the plunder/return a treasure because they are cursed, with effects of the curse they endure is fully revealed by moonlight and the gold medallion on a gold chain with mystic properties -able to summon/call, and characters (evil pirate captain, eccentric pirate, blacksmith, protagonist, one eye comic relief pirate who goes after the protagonist), is all documented in my original work, as even published in CD-ROM in 1994/1995.






As documented, none of what I created is found in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction nor is it found in any of Disney’s various Pirates of the Caribbean conceptual artwork, proposals, scripts or similar materials. Yet as the facts show, through Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, the Walt Disney Company has declared ownership to my unique supernatural pirate story which includes my structural blueprints, “sequences”, characters, dialogue and fictional inventions by first inserting “elements” references of their ride attraction into it, and then by deliberately concocting facts and lies about their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork, and then by employing various types of misdirection, and then by maliciously threatening me.

CHAPTER - 14) Disney’s Book Publicity, E-Ticket & TPA - Following up:

It is a documented fact that the Walt Disney Company proudly herald their “Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies” book at an event featuring Jason Surrell at their New York City flagship store as well as at a book signing event held at Walt Disney World. Meanwhile, also promoting this book, Jason Surrell gave several exclusive interviews and/or there is a flow of promotional materials which are featured on notable websites such as Jim Hill Media, Tell No Tales, Theme Park Adventure and Ultimate Disney. As documented, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio were also highly praised and celebrated.

Yet when contacted about his highly praising of the “Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies” book, Jim Hill bluntly dismissed commenting while he viciously attacked my credibility. Afterwards, Disney invited Jim Hill to one of their exclusive luncheons in New York, even providing Jim Hill with a personalized dessert present. With Theme Park Adventure “TPA”, Rick West first responded that he hadn’t seen the published “Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies” book. Then in a follow up, Rick West politely stated that he would not make any further comments. Other sites contacted such as Ultimate Disney and Tell No Tales, which feature exclusive interviews with Jason Surrell and promotes the sale of this book, have all ignored inquires into this matter. Additionally, the website “Mouseplanet” has also ignored any reporting of this matter, and then surprisingly in June 2008 their website “Mouseplanet” proudly celebrated Jason Surrell and his Pirates of the Caribbean book, even providing it as a recorded podcast. Then one year later, in a follow up, on June 5, 2009, Mouseplanet again keenly promoted Jason Surrell and his Disney book writing legacy.

It’s a documented fact that the Walt Disney Company, (with Jason Surrell and signed off by Marty Sklar) deliberately used “E-Ticket” issue 32 - the noted 1999 Pirates of the Caribbean issue, page 15 out of context, intentionally manipulating the information it contained in a deceptive and fraudulently manner with which to concoct facts and lies. It is a documented fact that Jack Janzen, whose E-Ticket magazine publications are an important focal point, respectfully confirmed that he (his company) “did NOT work with Mr. Surrell” on the “Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies” book.






FACT: On page four in the Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies author Jason Surrell’s thank you statement section - “the author would also like to thank the following for their contributions to this book:” - “Special thanks for their contributions go to:”, actually contains the names of people who did not directly contribute to the book, with some material that was taken from other sources and presented as if those people had actually participated with the book. This includes Jason Surrell/Disney thanking a dead person who died before the book was written, and even deliberately changing and altering to what was actually found in factual quotes.






CHAPTER - 15) The Value of E-Ticket & The Janzen Family:

FACT: During the legal proceedings, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio together with the Walt Disney Company had submitted two copies of Janzen’s “E-Ticket issue 32” - the noted 1999 Pirates of the Caribbean issue (with page 15) as evidence of their defense, fraudulently presenting it as proof that Marc Davis’ creative work is directly tied to their defense claims, but it was only after they had concocted facts and lies using the same E-Ticket issue 32, and making the Janzens out to be ignorant liars.

FACT: During the legal proceedings, the very same E-Ticket magazine publication, especially issue 32, that Disney, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had proudly revealed that they used for their research and that was presented as their proof of their defense, actually contradicts them, exposing that Jason Surrell, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio and signed of by Marty Sklar had concocted facts and lies about Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork.

Therefore, in 2007, I had pleaded with Jack Janzen to uphold righteousness. However Mr. Janzen had ceased responding to my correspondence and curiously his beloved “The-E-Ticket.com” website which sold back issues and subscriptions of his highly praised “The E-Ticket” publication had suddenly stopped being updated. In late 2007, on this website, (see above) I had posted one of Jack Janzen’s email in which he confirmed that he had no involvement with Jason Surrell’s Pirates of the Caribbean book. However, soon after, in early 2008, without notice, Janzen’s official “The E-Ticket” website was abruptly shut down. On June 14, 2008, Mr. Janzen had replied to an inquiry about the status of his website, writing that the host of his “E-Ticket” website had “dumped the contents”, and that “it is not immediately retrievable”, and that he is the process of selling his “The E-Ticket” publication, and that there is “no intention” to continue publishing it. With his candid response, now raises additional issues such as: With the announcement of the dumping of the computer files of “The E-Ticket” website, are all of the Janzen’s original archives of interviews and materials safe and protected? Does Jack Janzen still have records of my correspondence with him? And, just how many “new owners” will E-Ticket pass through and what will ultimately happen with the purity and protection of Janzen’s E-Ticket celebrated legacy of archived facts, interviews and documentation which include Marc Davis’ candid statements that Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean has no story, and him explaining his “ghost effect haunting gag” once “new owners” are in possession of it?

On July 17, 2008 - The E-Ticket website was active again, and shortly after, again confirmed that they are selling off The E-Ticket magazine.

As with many, I have greatly respected the Janzen’s integrity and their legacy. However, due to the corrupt acts of Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio, along with certain people at the Walt Disney Company such as Jason Surrell (signed off by Marty Sklar), the Janzen’s ethics and honor are now also in jeopardy. Clearly, Jack Janzen has the power to make a difference and certainly the ramifications of Janzen’s plan in his handling of this serious matter will have great effects. To either uphold righteousness, or, to do nothing, remain silent, sell off “E-Ticket” and look the other way.

On July 4, 2009 - Jack Janzen announced that The E-Ticket publication will be part of the Walt Disney Family Foundation, notably in establishing a museum that commemorates Walt Disney the man.


CHAPTER - 16) Prove Disney’s plan to add “cursed pirates” and the “Black Pearl” to their ride attraction after the fact:

* FACT: Disney never presented any copyright or proof that there is a story in their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction or its conceptual artwork, proposals, scripts or its designs, especially one which is about pirates who stole a treasure that they didn’t know was cursed and because of that, the pirates are “cursed pirates” and are “living skeletons”, pirates who transform into skeletal pirates and back again.

* FACT: The facts and evidence proves that the “supernatural elements” in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction is because the deserted caverns-grotto are supposed to be haunted, complete with a “talking skull”, “ghostly voices” and a harpsichord that plays by itself. Yet through their misdirection, concocted facts and lies, Disney, (Jason Surrell & Marty Sklar) along with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, have now deceitfully declared that the “supernatural elements” of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction was about “cursed pirates”, who stole a treasure they didn’t know that was curse, and thus transform into “living skeletons”, “skeletal pirates”, hence the talking skull in the ride attraction.

* FACT: From its inception, proposals, conceptual artwork, scripts, designs and through various completed versions, there were no “cursed pirates” in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. It was the pirates themselves who cursed the treasure as a warning for no one to touch their earthly possessions. However, through the use of misdirection, concocted facts and lies, Disney together with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, now boldly claim that the skeletal remains of the dead pirates in the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction “living skeletons”, “skeletal pirates” and “cursed pirates”. Disney together with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio also now boldly claim that the pirates as seen in their heyday with the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction are the ones who are seeking “treasure” that they don’t know it’s cursed, and thus they end up cursed pirates. Disney working with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, started to refer to these pirates seen in their heyday as “cursed pirates”. Then they deliberately fused these concocted facts and lies into various interviews, websites, the Pirates of the Caribbean book, the legal proceeding documents, their defense evidence and their sworn testimony.

* FACT: None of the unique sequences, including structural blueprints, dialogue, characters (evil pirate captain, eccentric pirate, blacksmith, protagonist, one eye comic relief pirate who goes after the protagonist), cursed pirates of the Black Pearl pirate ship; pirates who don't want anything to do with the plunder/return a treasure because they are cursed, with effects of the curse they endure is fully revealed by moonlight, a gold medallion on a gold chain with mystic properties -able to summon/call especially near the ocean and other fictional inventions, which are all my original work, as published in 1994/1995, and are my key claims against Disney, were ever found in their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction or its conceptual artwork and designs.

Terry Rossio: “...the (Pirates of the Caribbean) movie offers plenty of vignettes and tributes to the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride.” (2003 - Writingstudio & Disney)

Ted Elliott: (For the Pirates of the Caribbean movie) “We wanted to recreate/evoke some specific moments from the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride -- the pirate attack on the town being the most obvious. ” - (August 18, 2006 - Wordplayer.com)

* FACT: The name of my pirate ship is the Black Pearl, while in Disney’s movie, the name of the pirate ship seen attacking a town and its port fort is also named the Black Pearl. However, as Disney, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio celebrate that they have (in their own words) “recreated and evoked specific moments from Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction” for the movie, with “the pirate attack on the town (and its seaport fort) being the most obvious”, the truth is that for over thirty years the name of the pirate ship in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, which is featured attacking the town and its seaport fort, is actually named the “Wicked Wench”.

* FACT: In a desperate attempt to identify it to the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, in 2003-2006, Disney was preparing to drastically change their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. As documented, Disney was going to add the characters such as Captain Barbossa (evil pirate captain), Jack Sparrow (eccentric pirate), Will Turner (blacksmith) and Elizabeth Swann (protagonist). Disney was also preparing to add “cursed pirates” - “skeletal pirates” and change their Wicked Wench pirate ship, which is featured attacking a town and its port fort, to the Black Pearl pirate ship.

The following photos shows proof that the Walt Disney Company was planning to drastically change their ride attraction by especially adding “cursed pirates”-“skeletal pirates” and the Black Pearl pirate ship, all after the fact. (This proof can be briefly seen on Dead Man’s Chest DVD “Re-Imagineering The Attraction” special feature).






Dave Smith: (Chief Walt Disney Company Archivist) - “But, we have added characters to previous character-free attractions: witness Pirates of the Caribbean (Jack Sparrow)..” (2008 - from letter address to and posted by LaughingPlace website)

It was only after my claims against them when Disney abruptly stopped most of their drastic ride changes. Disney did NOT add “cursed pirates” - “skeletal pirates” nor change their Wicked Wench pirate ship into the Black Pearl. However, they did add two characters, notably Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa to their ride attraction while they now abruptly proclaimed that the Wicked Wench pirate ship belonged to Jack Sparrow and that the ship was later set on fire, sunk, raised and renamed to the “Black Pearl”.







CHAPTER - 17) Prove for over thirty years, it’s the WICKED WENCH and not the Black Pearl.

1967 - Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, having been created with Walt Disney, Marc Davis and Claude Coates, features a pirate ship named the “Wicked Wench” which is seen attacking a fort port and town.

1994 - Royce Mathew’s pirate ship is named the “Black Pearl” - published on CD-ROM”

1999 - Twice identifying the pirate ship in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction as the “Wicked Wench”, this Janzen publication provides photos of it. (1999 - E-Ticket issue 32 - pages 25 & 31)

1999 - In his Theme Park Adventure publication, on page 45, Rick West published a photo of the pirate ship in Disneyland’s ride attraction which is featured attacking a town. Per Disney/Bob Baranick, Rick West proudly pinpoints that the pirate ship is named the “Wicked Wench”.

2002 - For Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean film, in Stuart Beattie script, features a pirate ship named the “Wicked Wench” which is featured attacking the town.

2003 - After Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio are hired for Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean film, and because Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio (in their own words) want “to base it on Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction”, and (also in their own words)“because the ride attraction provides a narrative” and (also in their own words) because they “wanted to recreate/evoke some specific moments from the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride -- the pirate attack on the town being the most obvious” - , the fact is that the pirate ship in Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio’s script / the movie, which is featured attacking the town is named the “Black Pearl”.

2004 - In a desperate attempt to identify it to the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Disney was preparing to drastically change their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. In particular, Disney was going change their “Wicked Wench” pirate ship, which is featured attacking the town, to the “Black Pearl” pirate ship and place Barbossa, the evil pirate captain on it.

2004 - Royce Mathew notifies the Walt Disney Company, Jerry Bruckheimer, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio of his serious claims.

2006 - After Royce Mathew’s claims, Disney abruptly stopped most of their drastic ride changes. Disney still placed Barbossa the evil pirate captain on the Wicked Wench pirate ship, while abruptly proclaiming that the Wicked Wench pirate ship belonged to Jack Sparrow and that the ship was later set on fire, sunk, raised and renamed to the “Black Pearl”.


CHAPTER - 18) Prove Michael Eisner & Marty Sklar’s involvement & Sklar lying under oath:

FACT: In 2004, I clearly identified that Michael Eisner was part of this matter, yet the Walt Disney Company simply ignored it. Yet it was proven that this was true and indeed part of the story which follows through with Marty Sklar, Eric Jacobson and Brock Thoman, as I previously identified, including with having original files with Brock Thoman’s name along with his Disney 1993 phone number. In December 2006, Disney finally produced the 1992/1993 Michael Eisner memo, generated by Michael Eisner, on his stationary, in his handwriting, addressed to Marty Sklar, with my name on it that is part of my claim. However, during further legal procedures, Marty Sklar personally attempted to downplay the Michael Eisner letter. (Per materials)

FACT: Despite that Disney all along had in its possession the 1992 Michael Eisner memo regarding Royce Mathew that was addressed to Marty Sklar, Disney had demanded that the court not allow the evidence a day before a jury declaring that "they haven't received anything" from Royce Mathew. Yet during the legal proceedings when this 1992 Michael Eisner memo was confirmed, Disney suddenly went from saying that they don't know Royce Mathew to now saying that they don't remember him. However, Disney kept attacking my credibility while continuing to demand that the court deny me and the evidence a day before a jury. (Per materials)

FACT: During the legal proceedings, I had detailed a time line which includes the names of people, phone numbers, files and evidence, which are later confirmed. Yet as with any other important evidence, Disney deliberately dismisses it all as being insignificant. This includes:

1992-1993 - The Michael D. Eisner memo - Michael Eisner’s own written instructions directs Marty Sklar to take action in regards to ROYCE MATHEW. In turn, Marty Sklar instructs Eric Jacobson to take action in regards to Royce Mathew too.

1993 - Directly through Michael Eisner and his actions at his office, I am invited out to lunch by the Walt Disney Company which to discuss my creative work and various projects, which included my various original supernatural stories, including my supernatural pirate movie featuring the Black Pearl pirate ship. I also have been creating and producing interactive & game products that are based on my movies and the movie industry

1993 - For many decades, and through 1993 and continuing through 2003, the Walt Disney Company itself continually used and relies on Variety to announce and promote their movie projects and products. So months after my lunch meeting with the Walt Disney Company, on November 16th 1993, I had personally placed a full back page ad in the entertainment industry trade paper “Variety”. This specific Variety ad announced two other of my original supernatural movies that I was pitching to Disney and their business associates. One being a supernatural ocean movie and the other being a supernatural adventure movie titled, “Touchstone”. Cleverly celebrating that I looked forward to working with the Walt Disney Company, as I had proposed that Disney’s ride attraction names, even their company divisions names could be incorporated into my original unique supernatural stories and creative work. I had purposely named my supernatural adventure movie “Touchstone” because it is the name of a Disney movie division.






1993-1994 - In conjunction with the Variety ad, I work on a short condensed version of my supernatural pirate movie that I will actually film. This would help pitch it as well as further showcase my talents as a director, producer, editor, interactive & game designer etc...

1994-1995 - I continue to have discussions and meetings with the noted talent agencies CAA aka Creative Artists Agency and the William Morris Agency over my creative supernatural stories. I had a final pitch meeting with the Walt Disney Company over my supernatural pirate story including for movies and the recently emerging “interactive” market. My original creative work is published on CD-ROM and more. Ultimately, my final meeting with the Walt Disney Company goes sour because of their way of doing business with independent artists. Soon, through Michael Eisner, the Walt Disney Company hires Michael Ovitz, bringing him over from CAA to help run the company including the newly created “Disney Interactive” division.

FACT: In 2007, during the legal proceedings at his deposition, Marty Sklar confirmed the 1992-1993 Michael Eisner memo regarding Royce Mathew, which is addressed to himself. Marty Sklar also confirmed his own hand writing and signature on the Michael D. Eisner / Royce Mathew memo papers.

FACT: This is the same Marty Sklar who in 2005, had assisted, supervised and signed off on Disney’s official Pirates of the Caribbean book, that was written by Disney employee Jason Surrell.

FACT: As documented, during the legal proceedings, in addition to Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio lying under oath, Marty Sklar himself had also deliberately lied under oath, with which to vigorously support and defend Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio and their fraudulent bold claims, and thus help shield the Walt Disney Company from any accountability.






Marty Sklar - Documented facts and charges of concocting facts, lies and fraud.

Both the Janzen’s E-Ticket and Rick West’s Theme Park Adventure are important resources, because not only has E-Ticket had devoted many years to extensively documenting and preserving the history of Disney's ride attractions, the Janzens and Rick West have done extensive research by working directly with Disney archivists, historians and other particular Disney employees including Marc Davis and Marty Sklar.

Through the years, E-Ticket has done many interviews with noted Disney artists associated with the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction especially Marc Davis. Furthermore, in addition to receiving continual assistance from Disney archivists and as well as from Marty Sklar, E-Ticket had even devoted a cover story interview with Marty Sklar. Meanwhile, for his Pirates of the Caribbean issue, Rick West had also received great assistance from Walt Disney Imagineering, its research division and Marty Sklar. Rick West had also conducted exclusive interviews with Disney employees such as Marc Davis, Tony Baxter, Bob Baranick and Marty Sklar for his Pirates of the Caribbean issue. Thus as fully documented, Marty Sklar is personally thanked in the opening of the 1999 E-Ticket Pirates of the Caribbean issue 32, is also personally thanked in the 1999 Theme Park Adventure book that is also dedicated to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, and then Marty Sklar is personally thanked yet again in the 2007 E-Ticket Pirates of the Caribbean issue 45.

It’s no dispute that E-Ticket and Theme Park Adventure are very valuable resources and it's a fact that Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar would need to rely on the E-Ticket and Theme Park Adventure for Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean book. In the opening pages of Disney's book, they had thanked E-Ticket and Theme Park Adventure, notably Jack Janzen, Leon Janzen and Rick West for their special contributions to Disney's 2005 Pirates of the Caribbean book.

FACT: As documented during the legal proceedings, Disney together with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had not only identified E-Ticket magazine as being very important, together they had presented two copies of the 1999 E-Ticket issue Pirates of the Caribbean issue 32 as their evidence. Meanwhile Marty Sklar confirmed under oath that not only was he quite familiar with the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction, and that he had many discussions with Jack Janzen and Leon Janzen. However, oddly, Marty Sklar responded that he couldn't remember if he had any discussions over the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction.

FACT: As documented, Marty Sklar worked on the original promotions for the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. Then through the years, while working under the leadership of Michael Eisner, Marty Sklar had greatly assisted E-Ticket and Theme Park Adventure including for their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction research. Eventually Marty Sklar would go on to assist and supervise his fellow Disney employee Jason Surrell with the construction and release of Disney's official Pirates of the Caribbean book. Marty Sklar, who himself had written a foreword in the book, is even personally thanked by Jason Surrell in the opening of the book. However in 2007, at his deposition, Marty Sklar suddenly attempted to downplay his role with Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean book while displaying an almost complete lack of memory regarding the book's creation and his involvement.

FACT: During the legal proceedings, that not only did Disney employee Marty Sklar's memory stalled when it came to discussing the creation of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean book, and that he tried to downplay his involvement with the book, and that he was now critical of Jack Janzen, it's a documented fact that Marty Sklar had also deliberately lied under oath with which to support and defend Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio's concocted facts and lies. As documented, Marty Sklar had deliberately concocted facts and lied under oath in order to continue to dupe the court and the public, by presenting that Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction had cursed pirates, in particular a cursed pirate who had transformed into a living skeleton.


CHAPTER - 19) Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio - A Few Other Things & WordPlayer:

Here are a few other things involving Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio as well as their professional website wordplayer.com - that was documented during the legal proceedings, and/or presented to the Walt Disney Company and/or filed in Federal Court.

Terry Rossio: “I hope you don't think this town is fair. Your ideas will get stolen. Your work will get bastardized. Even film-makers you admire will screw you over, if they get the chance.” “This is a town of rich white males for rich white males.” “This whole town is about conflict. Anxiety. Strife. Yelling. Lying. Insulting. Machiavellian power struggles. You must fight for your job every time out, against people who are stronger, more experienced, and who have fewer moral qualms than you. I 'm a bit of an expert here, having felt all these things myself.” (Ted Elliot & Terry Rossio’s website through 2004 - Wordplayer)

FACT: Especially during 1991-1995, I was conducting business over my creative work with both the William Morris agency and Creative Artists talent agencies, and during this same period, I pitched my supernatural pirate movie to Disney. Meanwhile, during this exact time period, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio were working at Disney and both were being represented by the William Morris agency. Later, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio were represented by Creative Artists agency.

FACT: On at least at four different occasions, and right through the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, that Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio together have publicly admitted things about themselves that involves themselves stealing the creative work of other people.

FACT: Through 2003, Terry Rossio gave published testimony admitting that he is “jealous” and “somewhat resentful” of imaginative writers because he is in a constant state of having “writer’s block”, which is a mental state of the inability to write, especially creatively. As documented, credited writer Terry Rossio suffers from “writer’s block”, especially before and during the manufacturing of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

FACT: Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have a professional website, (wordplayer.com) where for years they were beckoning, baiting and encouraging the public and aspiring writers to submit their original creative materials “great ideas” to them. The three notable addresses that Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had used were: 1) the DreamWorks company address (when they worked at Dreamworks); 2) then, when they went back to the Walt Disney Company, they used Disney’s business address of 500 S. Buena Vista Street, Animation 1D-2 Burbank, California 91521; 3) and then after abruptly removing the Disney’s address, Terry Rossio’s own California home address was used to accept the public’s creative materials.

FACT: Terry Rossio gave published testimony proudly stating that “mental real estate” was the “most valuable of all property” and everyone should “trust him”. Yet then seeking the creative materials, Terry Rossio attempts to persuade the public that he and Ted Elliot must protect themselves from becoming victims, so Terry Rossio innocently introduces a “waiver”. However, upon examination of their published waiver, Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean employees Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio have expressed, once they get hold of a writer’s “great ideas”, they have total control including justifying their free usage and exploitation of the writer’s creative materials if they decide to do so. A submitting writer also signs away all of their rights to sue Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, and the only recourse is arbitration, of which the submitting writer must pay all of their own expenses, and if there is any ruling against Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio, it’s Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio who themselves determine what dollar value the submitting writer’s creative property is worth.

Here is another one of Terry Rossio’s quotes which he wrote on his and Ted Elliott’s website about copyright, theft and them stealing people’s creative work..

Terry Rossio: “Your work is automatically copyrighted the day you finish it, but a further protection is to register it with the Library of Congress, but that might not deter someone trying to steal it...” “In the end, the best, but still imperfect, solution is to connect with people you feel you can trust. In the long run, relationships will pay off better than legal protections. I can at least lay to rest any fears you may have about Scheherazade Productions, we’re too busy now to even read much of anything, let alone steal anyone’s stuff! Best, Terry. (Terry Rossio & Ted Elliott wordplayer website - through at least 2004)

FACT: After I had personally notified Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio of my claims, they quickly stopped accepting public submissions.

FACT: Especially before and during the manufacturing of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie, credited writer Terry Rossio, on his website, published testimony firmly warning that “your” valuable “ideas” will get stolen” by people in the entertainment industry, so he also states the importance of copyright. Yet as documented, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have not followed their own advice. They have few registrations with the copyright office, and nothing is on file which relates to an approach, pitch, story, outline, treatment or screenplay for a pirate movie. Furthermore, that despite for many years being professional union writers belonging to the prestigious WGA (Writer’s Guild of America), of which has a professional script-outline-treatment registration system available for their use, they have few registrations at their own WGA union, of which there is nothing on file with any approaches, pitches, story, outline, treatments or similar that has anything to do with a pirate movie. It was not until 2003 that the Walt Disney Company registered a supernatural pirates screenplay with the copyright office featuring the names Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio.

Ted Elliott: “When we first pitched this idea, we didn’t pitch a story. We didn’t have a specific story; we had this approach, which came out of our thinking of, we want to do a pirate movie. How do we get somebody to fund it? And how do we make sure there’s a chance an audience will show up for it?” (2003 - JoBlo & Disney).

Ted Elliott: “Uh, and we just went back to the ride and said, look. There are all these stories, all these legends and in the (Pirates of the Caribbean) ride itself all of these elements of the supernatural and they have never been used in a pirate movie. Let’s go head do that. Let’s bring in those elements and make them all work.” (2003 - Disney - Curse of The Black Pearl DVD audio commentary)

FACT: By their own admission, in 2003 when promoting the movie, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have admitted that they never pitched or presented a story for a movie. As documented, Ted Elliott stated that they only had an approach, which was to “bring in all of those stories and legends”, and incorporate Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. Then during the legal proceedings, Terry Rossio claimed that he and Ted Elliott had pitched an approach using “the story” from Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. However, in addition to having no proposal, no concept or no story, it is a documented fact that during the legal proceedings there was absolutely no record of Ted Elliott nor Terry Rossio of ever having pitched or presented any “approach”, “story” or anything to do with Pirates of the Caribbean as they repeatedly claimed they did. Furthermore, as for their computers, during their depositions, Ted Elliott declared that he had first wiped his hard drive before donating his computer, while Terry Rossio declared that key computer containing the Pirates of the Caribbean work, which was important evidence, was stolen. Terry Rossio also stated that he didn’t file a police report because the station was busy and he didn’t want to wait, and it’s revealed that they didn’t have any proper back up files either.


CHAPTER - 20) Ignorant Liars & Disney’s Archives

Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have made bold claims about Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork. However history and documents prove that Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have had concocted facts and lies. Yet Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio together have deliberately used these bold claims in various interviews, publications and had also purposely infused them into the legal proceedings documents, their defense evidence and their sworn testimony. Even under oath, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio together have proclaimed that there certainly is a story in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and that it “escaped” Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean movie development executive Brigham Taylor. Meanwhile with Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean book, Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar tributes, credits and thank Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio twice while surprisingly supporting and upholding what Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have stated, and even have claimed to produce a painting from Disney archives that they say matches up with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio’s bold claims. This too was infused into the legal proceedings documents, their defense evidence and their sworn testimony.

But where did Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio bold claims come from? Where did Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar’s bold supporting claims come from and where did they get that particular painting from?

Well, for Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, it was during their depositions when together they revealed that they never went to the Walt Disney Company archives and that they never had any discussions with Walt Disney Imagineering. Instead, for their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction research, together, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio stated that they had searched the internet, identifying particular websites (evidently Tell No Tales.com, Miceage.com and Mouseplanet.com) and that they had especially used E-Ticket magazine, notably the Pirates of the Caribbean issue 32. However, in truth, various websites, including Miceage and Mouseplanet has never done anything that detailed the facts surrounding the history of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction as E-Ticket had done before. Meanwhile, the website Tell No Tales had prominently used E-Ticket magazine issue 32 for their feature on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. Yet as documented, nothing of what Tell No Tales and E-Ticket had published matches up to the bold claims of Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio. It’s a fact that even Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio’s own evidence as well as their own sworn statements actually exposes themselves as having concocted facts and lies.

It is a documented fact that Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have NEVER worked with Marc Davis, and Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have NEVER interviewed Marc Davis, and Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have NEVER had anything to do with any of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attractions, and Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have NEVER went to the Walt Disney Company archives for their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction research, and Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have NEVER had any discussions with Walt Disney Imagineering for their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction research either. So during the legal proceedings Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had proudly declared that E-Ticket magazine, which contains interviews with Marc Davis and artwork of Marc Davis, as being an important part of their defense evidence. However, at the very same time, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have actually represented that E-Ticket magazine and Marc Davis were all ignorant liars when it came to the facts and history of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had also made Marc Davis out to be an ignorant liar even when it came to his own Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction artwork.

And what about Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar? As documented in company email communications between Jason Surrell and his supervisors (Jody Revenson/Wendy Lefkon) - all of the files to make the Pirates of the Caribbean book had amazingly either “vanished” or was “fried” that same week. Meanwhile, in the opening of the Pirates of the Caribbean book, two other Disney employees Dave Smith and Robert Tieman are listed as the sole archivists for the Pirates of the Caribbean book and Jason Surrell personally thanks them. But who are Dave Smith and Robert Tieman and are they really involved, or are they reluctantly assisting Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar with the concocted facts and lies about Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork?

As documented, in 1970 David “Dave” Smith had actually started Disney archives, and then while working at Disney's Archives, it is a documented fact that for many years Dave Smith had greatly assisted E-Ticket on nearly all issues including the particular Pirates of the Caribbean issues 7, 21, 32 and 45. Robert Tieman working at Disney archives had also assisted on many E-Ticket issues too including the Pirates of the Caribbean issues 21, 32 and 45. Meanwhile Marty Sklar himself had even greatly assisted with both Theme Park Adventure and E-Ticket, including E-Ticket issue 30 and the Pirates of the Caribbean issues 32 and 45. It’s a documented fact that E-Ticket as well as Theme Park Adventure publication have repeatedly praised Dave Smith, Robert Tieman and Marty Sklar for their reference and research assistance. Yet as documented, nothing of what E-Ticket and Theme Park Adventure had published matches up to the bold claims of Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar either. It’s a fact that even Disney’s own evidence as well as Marty Sklar’s sworn statements actually exposes themselves as having concocted facts and lies.





FACT: Because Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio had deliberately concocted facts and lies and had lied under oath, fraudulently claiming that Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork had a story about pirates who stole a treasure that they didn’t know was cursed and because of that, the pirates are cursed, having become living skeletons in the caverns-grotto, it has made many people including Walt Disney, Marc Davis, Francis X. Atencio, John Hench, Jack Janzen & Leon Janzen - (E-Ticket magazine), Rick West - (Theme Park Adventure), Tony Baxter, Bruce Gordon, Tom Fitzgerald, Brigham Taylor as well as Disney archivists Dave Smith and Robert Tieman all out to be ignorant liars.

FACT: Because Disney, notably Jason Surrell with Marty Sklar had deliberately infused concocted facts and lies into the official Pirates of the Caribbean book with which to also fraudulently claim that the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork had a story about pirates who stole a treasure that they didn’t know was cursed and because of that, the pirates are cursed, having become living skeletons in the caverns-grotto and with Marty Sklar also lying under oath, it has made Walt Disney, Marc Davis, Francis X. Atencio, John Hench, Jack Janzen & Leon Janzen - (E-Ticket magazine), Rick West - (Theme Park Adventure), Tony Baxter, Bruce Gordon, Tom Fitzgerald, Brigham Taylor as well as Disney archivists Dave Smith and Robert Tieman all out to be ignorant liars too.


CHAPTER - 21) Disney’s ongoing Public Perception Operation

To date, Disney having notably utilized Marty Sklar, Jason Surrell and now Jeff Kurtti, continues to manipulate the public's perception with which to convince the public that there is a story in Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and its conceptual artwork. Thus after their concocted facts and lies were deliberately fused into the Pirates of the Caribbean book, into various interviews, the legal proceeding documents, their defense evidence and their sworn testimony, Disney’s new so-called proof of a story is now comprised of having their employees provide personal commentary using deceptive manipulation. Hey, if Disney makes it seem so, then it’s true.

FACT: In late 2008, Disney released a book titled “Walt Disney's Imagineering Legends and the Genesis of the Disney Theme Park” written by Jeff Kurtti, with which to talk about the importance of “Disney Imagineers” and their role in creating Disney’s theme park rides and attractions. Yet oddly, the book doesn’t contain any opening page references, quote sources, or have any other similar reference. Then when it came to Marc Davis and Claude Coats, two artists who drew, sketched, designed and painted pictures for a living, they were placed under their own section in the book that Disney surprisingly titled “Story Department”. There were no other artist names listed under that heading or under that type of subject. Meanwhile on page 48 within the book, they also surprisingly placed the crowning title that reads - “Marc Davis: The Story Man”. Then within that section, Disney employees used deceptive and manipulative editorial styled commentary declaring that Claude Coats and Marc Davis were skilled in storytelling for the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction. They also deceitfully placed words into Marc Davis's mouth, fraudulently declaring that “Marc Davis felt that Pirates of the Caribbean owed much of its success to its reliance on strong story and characterization.” Then just like with the Pirates of the Caribbean book, Marty Sklar, working with Wendy Lefkon and Jody Revenson, had provided this book with a foreword and had signed off on it.

FACT: Even though that in Disney’s own official Pirates of the Caribbean book it confirms a quote from Marc Davis, which he states that Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction is not a story telling medium and that Marc Davis had also stated this in other noted published quotes, in 2008 and 2009, Disney used another book writer Jeff Kurtti, (a Disney employee who had never worked with Marc Davis, who had never worked on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction and who had never conducted interviews with Marc Davis as E-Ticket had done) with which to fraudulently make it appear that Marc Davis said something he never said. Compare these three noted Marc Davis published interview quotes to the following three official Disney statements done by Jeff Kurtti and Jason Surrell which are NOT Marc Davis quotes.

Three of MARC DAVIS’ published quotes:

Marc Davis: “Walt agreed and I certainly agreed that this type of show (Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction) is not a story-telling medium.” (1997 - Scott Wolf: Mouseclubhouse.com)

Marc Davis: “He (Walt Disney) didn’t like the idea of telling stories in this medium (ride attractions). It’s not a story telling medium. But it does give you experiences. You experience the idea of pirates. You don’t see a story that starts at the beginning and then ends up with, ‘by golly, they got the dirty dog.’ It wasn’t that way.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean book page 30 - which is taken from - Disney News)

Marc Davis: “...All of these attractions is that they are a series of experiences. You aren’t telling a story in the Haunted Mansion anymore than you are trying to tell a story in the Pirates of the Caribbean. You’re showing some pirates in a lot of interesting situations, but you don’t really have a beginning or an ending. They’re a series of situations, not a story.” (1989: E-Ticket issue 7 - pages 9 - 10 or in archived PDF file it’s on pages 11-12)

Three of DISNEY’s published “FELT” statements that were done via Jason Surrell and Jeff Kurtti:

Jason Surrell: “In many ways, Marc (Davis) felt the scenes had to be simple because they weren’t telling a story in the traditional sense.” (2005 & 2006 - Pirates of the Caribbean: From the Magic Kingdom to the Movies book - page 29)

Jeff Kurtti: “Marc Davis felt that Pirates of the Caribbean owed much of its success to its reliance on strong story and characterization.” (2008 - Walt Disney's Imagineering Legends and the Genesis of the Disney Theme Park book - page 52)

Jeff Kurtti: “Marc (Davis) played a central role in developing the most ambitious theme park show ever produced, Pirates of the Caribbean. He (Marc Davis) felt the show owed much of its success to its reliance on strong story and characterization.” (2009 - The Art of Walt Disney World Resort book - page 134)

FACT: Jason Surrell who had never interviewed Marc Davis had received supervision and assistance from Marty Sklar with the official Disney books. While Jeff Kurtti had also received assistance from Marty Sklar with the official Disney books.

FACT: Despite the concocted and deceitful “FELT” statements, in September 2009, Disney had Marty Sklar promote the “Walt Disney's Imagineering Legends and the Genesis of the Disney Theme Park” book at their first public fan convention called “D23 Expo".


CHAPTER - 22) The Walt Disney Company In Action:

In addition to the documented fraud, corruption and criminal acts, the Walt Disney Company has engaged in a variety of other blatant corrupt acts, disregarding lawful rules and following its own design of hypocritical standards, all without any fear of failed governmental oversight agencies. This also included blatant violations of legal proceeding protocol and purposely ignoring their own set of Standards of Business Conduct that Robert Iger and the Disney board of directors continually tout on the Walt Disney corporate website.





FACT: To date, Walt Disney Company’s Corporate Legal Department, as also listed on their official website, have ignored all correspondence and have ignored confirmation of any correspondence alerting them of unethical and illegal conduct within the Walt Disney Company.





These serious charges of fraud, corruption and criminal acts can not be excused whatsoever. Even the Walt Disney Company’s own corporate website proclaims this. However, the Walt Disney Company’s response to my filing a complaint report via their own website policy, was to justified a bogus excuse with which to not address these serious and important issues.

FACT: On July 24, 2009, a Global Compliance representative provided the following response on behalf of the Walt Disney Company - “The investigation is complete. The complaints that the caller (Royce Mathew) presents were considered and or related to legal proceedings previously brought by the caller against the company. Accordingly the (Walt Disney) company will not further respond to these complaints. “

During the legal proceedings, these serious charges were never discussed by the Walt Disney Company. Therefore it is completely reckless, absurd and corrupt for the Walt Disney Company to represent that this matter dealing with fraud, corruption, conspiracy and criminal acts within the Walt Disney Company as carried out by Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio and its own employees as having already been previously addressed during the legal proceedings.

FACT: As documented by it’s own third party agency, as filed under their Report number WD-09-06-0042 and Report number WD-09-07-0032, the Walt Disney Company has shown that it is in complete violation of its own posted “Standards of Business Conduct” when dealing with unethical and illegal conduct of its employees.

Thus from correspondence, through professional meetings, to court proceedings, to self proclaimed company oversight, it is impossible to carry out any lawful productive progress whatsoever when the Walt Disney Company resorts to, relies on and employs a wide range of corrupt and illegal acts all the while pretending that they uphold ethical and lawful practices. One could expect this type of behavior when dealing with an organized crime family, but as documented by its actions and proven by its own evidence, the Walt Disney Company is indeed controlled by a bunch of unscrupulous individuals employing gangster style tactics who are proficient in using anything at their disposal with which to commit criminal acts, and who are highly skillful in using the vast resources of the company with which to cover up their criminal acts, and who maliciously threaten those who seek accountability in court.


CHAPTER - 23) Closing Comments:

It is a documented fact that only since my claims against them, because of their concocted facts and lies, the Walt Disney Company using Jason Surrell and Marty Sklar, together with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have made Walt Disney, Marc Davis, Francis X. Atencio, John Hench, Tony Baxter, Bruce Gordon, Bob Baranick, Brigham Taylor, Stuart Beattie, Jerry Bruckheimer and Keira Knightley all out to be ignorant liars. Yet they have also made Disney archivists Dave Smith and Robert Tieman as well as Jack Janzen, his deceased brother Leon and their “E-Ticket” publication; and Rick West and his publication “Theme Park Adventure”; and Chef Mayhem and his website “Tell No Tales”; and Scott Weitz and his tribute website “Etixland” all out to be ignorant liars as well.

It is also a documented fact that during the legal proceedings, the Walt Disney Company along with Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, officially demanded that I "admit" to the court that their concocted facts and lies about their Pirates of the Caribbean ride attraction were indeed true because they had deliberately concocted evidence which gives the appearance that it was true. Yet at the same time, they did not want this same evidence to go before a jury.

It is a documented fact that in addition to the Walt Disney Company officially demanding that I “admit” to their concocted facts and lies were true, they deliberately utilized misdirection so that the judge would have several reasons in justifying that none of the facts and evidence ever goes before a jury and that I would be hit with enormous fees, sanctions and expenses.





Based upon the Walt Disney Company's deliberately orchestrated corrupt acts, including concocting facts, lying, using misdirection and making false claims against me, as well as knowing of Disney’s great influence and deep pockets, firmly proved to me that the Walt Disney Company had only one predetermined goal and that it would continue to do whatever it took to obtain that goal. No doubt since the Walt Disney Company intentionally chose to go through so much effort to do such orchestrated fraudulent and corrupt acts rather than logically resolve it, that clearly they had to have known that the court would uphold and agree to whatever misdirection and concocted facts and lies that Disney presented. Clearly it was pointless for me to ever seek accountability by way of any logical resolution, fair mediation or by way of the court.

If the Walt Disney Company had no qualms as it intentionally used various fraudulent and corrupt acts with which to maliciously threaten and financially ruin me, while intentionally concocting facts and deliberately lying with which to maliciously threaten and financially destroy me, prevent the evidence from going before a jury, financially profit, dupe investors and purposely alter the public’s perception of the truth, then what else is Disney capable of doing? For with my claims, the Walt Disney Company has firmly proved that it has no fear of repercussions from whatever fraud, corrupt and criminal acts they engage in. Based on my experience and the facts I have presented within this correspondence, I believe that at the very least, a putrid legacy of Michael Eisner, who remains one of the top individual Disney shareholders, is still a controlling force within the Walt Disney company. The book “Disney War” by James B. Stewart reveals and details the same kind of “Eisner brand” of putrid policies and corrupt acts and certain loyal Eisner executives and board of directors, including Eisner utilizing Sandy Litvack to carry out his wishes; of which is the same Sandy Litvack the Walt Disney Company utilized in their operation against me.






Instead of holding anyone accountable, and after Michael Eisner left the company a year early evidently in light of other putrid practices, on January 23, 2006 the Walt Disney Company with its CEO Mr. Iger, had boldly renamed the Walt Disney Company’s corporate headquarters building to “Team Disney-The Michael D. Eisner building”. Then on April 25, 2008, the Walt Disney Company with its CEO Mr. Iger, had the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce award Michael D. Eisner with a prestigious “star” on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Then on July 17, 2009 at their Disneyland theme park, the Walt Disney Company had dedicated a personalized name “window” in honor of Marty Sklar’s fifty-three years of loyal service. Then on September 2009, Disney had both Marty Sklar and Jason Surrell appear as honored guests at their first annual Disney “D23 Expo” held in Anaheim California.

With their own private agenda, their slick presentations, their great influence and endless resources the Walt Disney Company may control the media and the courts, and they may continue to use gangster style threats against me and my family but they will never silence the truth. Clearly who cares what the Walt Disney Company does and what they did to Royce Mathew as long as its shareholders profit should never be condoned. No one should be able to profit from corrupt and criminal acts. Clearly this company’s documented putrid policies stemming from the Eisner era has continued and people still keep their heads in the sand, waiting for profits instead of demanding accountability.

As documented in their acts, the Walt Disney Company harbors a body of individuals who use anything at their disposal with which to cover up corrupt and criminal acts. This includes spinning lexicons, deploying deceitful semantics, putting words in dead people’s mouths, switching documents, destroying files, and a variety of other things. Then they shift attention by employing such things as holding festive events, praising each other in articles, and by handing out company awards.

If the Walt Disney Company, a publicly traded company, deliberately orchestrates and intentionally engages in various unethical and corrupt practices - with which to profit and avoid accountability, and then continually uses various techniques to avoid detection, does this mean its shareholders (whether it be the owner of one share or a billion shares) are to remain silent? Is any documented “corruption and fraud” as well as documented deliberate false and misleading statements done by the Walt Disney Company to be ignored only because the Walt Disney Company and its board of directors can make itself unaccessible or unresponsive? Doesn’t each shareholder/investor have a responsibility to demand answers or simply remain silent as long as the stock performs? As evident by the Ovitz-Eisner issue, the Jeffery Katzenberg issue, and then even with the Roy E. Disney/Stan Gold/board of directors/Eisner-Iger “sham” issue, and now with my issue, it is clear that the Walt Disney Company is still playing by their old putrid handbook. However, any corrupt or criminal act should never be condoned or be allowed to continue for any reason. This archive is a necessary tool with which to hold the Walt Disney Company and certain individuals accountable to the full extent of the law.

To date, the Walt Disney Company along with Jerry Bruckheimer Films/Inc. are still infringing upon my copyrighted protected work while the seriousness of this matter are grounds for an immediate investigation and corrective action including but not limited to the dismissal of certain executives, employees, non-responsive board of directors and the voiding of various contracts. This would also include charges of conspiracy, fraud, corruption, obstruction of justice, evidence tampering, threats and such.

FACT: The Walt Disney Company as well as Jerry Bruckheimer continues to ignore all correspondence including this letter sent to the Walt Disney Company and its board of directors.





Also as a shareholder, I demand that the facts and evidence should never be erased or destroyed by any act of the Walt Disney Company, of which all these materials and correspondences involving this serious matter, are part of the files of the Walt Disney Company, which is owned by its shareholders. This publicly traded company is also not permitted to use a band of lawyers with which to use the legal system to stop investigations into evident corrupt and criminal activities done by its past and present employees. I welcome all communications.

Also click on tab “page 3" which briefly highlights that for years, as the facts substantiate, that as I created and pitched my original work (via Disney, William Morris & CAA), Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio (at Disney, William Morris & CAA) have been plagiarizing my creative work.

As documented, when dealing with the Walt Disney Company, its fraud, corruption, putrid policies, criminal acts, gangster styled tactics, its no fear of failed governmental oversight agencies, and it has associates in places such as the Department of Justice, it is pointless to ever seek accountability by way of any logical resolution, fair mediation or by way of the court. So clearly, there will never be any steps towards accountability until there is righteous change in the Walt Disney Company and righteous changes in our government oversight agencies.
