More like tens of thousands of dollars.
New paint schemes and fiberglass figures for Pixar Pier cost $100 million! I’m sure that a new dress for a figure will go into maybe the tens of millions.

While some logic would suggest it's related to the Margot Robbie film due to timing. Isn't it still way too early for that? Is there even a script? That surely would be a 2022 release date at the earliest. Unless it's further along in development.

Although she has red hair, and for whatever reasons there's a habit of changing the race of those characters. So it could be that!

It's because the character of Redd will be in the new movie. Who knows if that is who Margot Robbie is playing or not at this point but that is the only reason for doing this. I only hope that when the movie bombs hard they put the scene back to the way it was originally after they realize people see through their PC crap.

did any of them even have names prior to depp being added... or were they just "pirates"
some of them were prob descriptive of their scene (drunk pirate) but were any bob the pirate, larry the pirate etc

Probably not. Just pet names from the creators I'm betting.

You know, some things really don't need a backstory, origin, orientation, mission, agenda or some sort of "representation". Some things can just "be"... Like Haunted Mansion. Well, before the Eddie Murphy movie.

Is it all part of the same cannon or storyline?

thats my point, i dont need all the animals named on the jungle cruise, all the pirates named with a backstory, the ghosts all have a tale. Theres something about the ride being the story... of course everything has to be merchandise i know.. but i liked it better when the pirates were the story.. not redds backstory.. and oh look its johnny depp

Margot Robbie maybe playing the redhead in a future pirates movie. Hopefully she'll sound different from the ride's version. Or else she'll sound worse than she does as Harley Quinn. Which is saying something.

On the bright side, this change may dethrone the addition of Jack Sparrow IP as "least objectionable change" to PoTC, with a history of increasingly heinous butchery of a classic.
