I just watched a video of "The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow", as I heard the Shanghai ride will use some sort of similar technology, and while I'm a little bit disappointed there won't be as much AA as in the original rides, I really think there's a big potential and can't wait to see the finished product.

With all the advances in projection/lighting technology, AA's are really a thing of the past. Unless you do them on the scale of Lava Monster (or the Yeti when it was working), they're not that impressive compared to what can be done with projections now when mixed with impressive physical sets.

See, and I think its the exact opposite. Large scale projections like Spiderman, Transformers, Forbidden Journey, and Flos in Racers work because they are larger then life, literally. Its impracticable or impossible to build these scenes out, so a projection is used. But on smaller scales, like with Racers, Ariel, or Pirates or Jurassic Park the AAs look great and would be totally silly to use projections for those things.

Sometimes it's required for space concerns, but minus that I would hope parks continue to build AAs because I think most are more impressed with those then a giant screen.

^^ Even on Forbidden Journey, the movie pods were by far the least interesting parts of the ride, it's when you're moving through the physical sets when the ride gets interesting. Plus that random Hermione projection in the spider woods part was soooo dumb.

On the topic of projections, it'd be really neat to see this system getting fleshed out in an attraction:
