After 5 long years, we finally can set sail on the hype ship. For Disney has released the first trailer for the one movie we've all been waiting for, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales! In this first teaser, we get our first look at the terrifying Capitán Salazar himself. With his deadly ghost crew, Salazar shows his determination to find Jack Sparrow...there should be a "Captain" in there, somewhere.
And to put my three shillings on the matter, while I'm sad we don't get our first official look at Captain Jack, the teaser trailer is brilliant! As I wrote some place before, I did wait almost 2 minutes for Jack (the pirate or the monkey) to pop in or have something us Pirates fans wanted answered for over 5 years (i.e. our beloved …

My, what a year this is becoming. We haven't gone 20 days into 2016 without pretty big news today. According to the The Walt Disney Company's official website, The Walt Disney Studios announced new release dates for upcoming films from two of its major franchises: Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean. Originally scheduled for May 26, 2017, Star Wars: Episode VIII will now debut on December 15, 2017; this move presumably follows the extraordinary success of the latest film, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Why is this affecting the Pirates franchise? Well, Disney also announced yet another change: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will now take Star Wars' place and set sail on May 26, 2017, from its previously scheduled July 7, 2017.

Happy belated Season Greetings...or whatever. Before I get to the topic in question, I should send my apologies for those following that noticed I haven't been posting and/or editing as often. But for those who didn't follow the news, as posted year or so ago, I suppose it's now appropriate for me to say I am semi-retired...the rest I'll let the linked post serve for me. So there, I've said it in two posts instead of just one.
With all that out of the way, to the topic in question...
Once again, the New Year has come again. Unlike the last couple of years, 2015 didn't seem to be too eventful for the Pirates franchise, at least in my most humble opinion. Still, there was some POTC-related activity going on somewhere in the Mouse's House...

I don't think "The Price of Freedom" is canon.
If we are going of of the Jack Sparrow and the Legends of the Brethren Court series, it doesn't fit.
Not that it's a bad book. I'm a huge fan of the POTC series and the small details get to me.
(For example in the fourth movie when Captain Jack called Teague dad. In everything else, even though it is heavily implied that he is his father, they never explicitly state they are father and son. That kind of ruined the movie for me.)
Back to the book.
In "The Price of Freedom" the Brethren Court summons Davy Jones, and Captain Jack doesn't recognize him. The scene tells us that this was the first time Captain Jack saw Jones.
But if we are going off of the Jack Sparrow series, Captain Jack met Davy Jones …Read more >
Less than a month after production wrapped, the Pirates franchise sets sail to this year's D23 Expo!
Among the many news and reports, I did find this one video which covered most of the info I have now. Sean Bailey, the president of production at Walt Disney Pictures, came out and presented new information regarding the fifth installment of the film franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales...
- Jack Sparrow, Hector Barbossa, and Captain Salazar are once again confirmed.
- Brenton Thwaites' character is confirmed as a young man named "Henry"
- Kaya Scodelario's character is confirmed to be a "brilliant young scientist" named Carina Smyth.
- Years of speculation, rumors, etc Will Turner is now officially confirmed to appear in the film.

As in my previous blog post I inquired about how my edits were undone in the category Pirates if the Caribbean Online and why they were deleted, but now I wonder why all of my edits are gone, was it because of the mistakes I made when making four small pages, because they are listed in abuse logs, and is this the wrong place to go asking?Read more >
I made a category called Pirates of the Caribbean Online and added almost all/all pages belonging to that game in that category, and someone deleted it, it had to be an admin and I just wanted to know why, it didn't seem like a bad thing to do, I thought it would've been helpful, but guess others thought otherwise. IF the person who deleted the category could tell me why that's be great.Read more >
Gentlemen, the time has come...after who-knows-how-many rewrites, delays and hard work from Disney/Bruckheimer (and now Roenberg), etc, I am happy to say that—at long, long, long last!—Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has finished production! Filming began back in February, and it is today that director Joachim Rønning announced that it's a wrap. Here are some official posts confirming the latest news...

Today i was online looking at POTC news, and I stumbled upon a little website called "Cinema Blend." This site deals with news coming from upcoming movies, such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avengers: Infinity War, Batman V.Superman: Dawn of Justice, and of course, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. In an interesting move, Cinema Blend claimed that they had a synopsis for the fifth POTC film. Here is the article: This Is What Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 Is Actually Going To Be About
According to the synopsis, Captain Jack Sparrow is down on his luck after the events of On Stranger Tides, and gets caught up in a plot to kill all Pirates on the sea. The main villain is an old associate of Jack's named " Captain …Read more >

To quote Captain Jack Sparrow himself, "We have our heading!" Yes, dear friends, the time has indeed come. After several delays, the fifth installment of the Pirates franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, has (at last!) officially begun production. Principal photography started in Australia only a few weeks ago, which I semi-covered in this blog. For those not wanting to read the comments (somewhat understandable), I should at least post some of the information, which you'll see later. But first, let's look into the official details of Captain Jack's latest adventure...
When Disney officially announced that production has begun on February 17, they also provided the synopsis:

Hollywood heavyweight confirms Pirates of the Caribbean Gold Coast shoot to start next week
THE cameras will finally start rolling on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales on the Gold Coast on February 12.
Hollywood heavyweight Jerry Bruckheimer, producer of the billion-dollar film franchise based on Walt Disney’s theme park ride of the same name, confirmed the news on Twitter in a post accompanied by a picture of one of several sets being built for the massive production — a medieval village at Maudsland, in the Gold Coast Hinterland.

Ahoy, mateys! First, I hope everyone had a very Happy Holiday(s), whether it was mainly Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc. And you all know we just came aboard the new year - 2015 is here at last! And quite coincidentally, or perhaps fortune continues to favor us, we have the very first set of Pirates of the Caribbean news on this day...or this week, anyway. So let's take a look at the latest, shall we?
Last month, it was reported that five actresses were "being tested" for a role in the fifth Pirates film. It was posted last week that Gabriella Wilde (Endless Love and Carrie) may have landed the role now claiming to be Elizabeth Swann, originally portrayed by Keira Knightley in the first 3 films. Criticisms aside, this report can easily be put un…
On his promotional tour for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, actor Orlando Bloom was interviewed about his possible involvement in the Pirates franchise. He revealed the possibility of a reboot, which may lead to something that will focus on the relationship between Will Turner and his son "Young Will Turner". While speaking with IGN, Bloom says the following...
- "I'm not entirely sure that [I'll be back] just yet, but there are talks. Basically they want to reboot the whole franchise, I think, and do something with me and the relationship with my son. I’m of course Davy Jones now, so I’m down the bottom of the ocean. It might be kind of fun to do something where I’m rumbling round the bottom of the ocean, because I won’t look anythin…
Just about a month after Brenton Thwaites was reported to appear in Pirates 5, it's been reported today that Disney has one last major role to cast for its next installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. According to Variety, five actresses are being tested for a love interest for Thwaites' British soldier "Henry", and Disney intends to have it cast before taking a holiday break. Some of the actresses on the list include: Lucy Boynton (Miss Potter), Gabriella Wilde (Endless Love and Carrie), Jenna Thiam (The Returned), Kaya Scodelario (The Maze Runner) and Alexandra Dowling (The Musketeers and Hammer of the Gods) are up for the role.
Whoever gets cast (in the next week or so) will star alongside Thwaites, Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush an…Read more >

It contains information that might give us some details around the story of Pirates 5. It goes about the best monkey in Caribbean, Jack! Barbossa's pet could be tied up in quarantine for over a month unless the producers can convince Australian authorities to relax the rules for animals. So Jack the Monkey is going to be part of the story?! News.com also gives us a photo of the set of Pirates 5 in Queensland, Australia.

Rumored to have been up for the part late last month, actor Brenton Thwaites may have an appearance (if not a large role) in the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film. According to a story at TheWrap, Thwaites is in talks for the role of "Henry", said to be a British soldier. Nothing else is currently known about the character, other than the part is possibly similar to that of Orlando Bloom's Will Turner and/or Sam Claflin's Philip Swift.
Thwaites also made appearances throughout this year in Maleficent and The Giver. The young star recently completed production on Alex Proyas' Gods of Egypt, set for release February 12, 2016.

In the wake of recent interviews with Lee Arenberg and Mackenzie Crook, in which the two ignited their possible return to the fifth Pirates, there is another semi-cryptic message from Martin Klebba (aka Marty) who made a very interesting Twitter post just yesterday:
- coming to an ocean near you! Now where did we leave that rum! The bands gettin back together! @exkevinmcnally @leearenberg #potc #pirates
To make this even more interesting, Klebba made replies with Kevin R. McNally (aka one Joshamee Gibbs), which seems to all but confirms their return...
- McNally: @MartinKlebba You joining us Marty?

- An ongoing question has been the fate of our beloved characters Pintel and Ragetti, whether they should be 'brought back' in the story of the fourth film, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES (OST). Because we have two world-class actors (Lee Arenberg and Mackenzie Crook), the roles have to be meaty enough to be worth their time, no one is going to ask them to stand in the background as part of a ship's crew. One of the toughest decisions on the production, but the choice was made to wait, and attempt to being them back if there is another sequel.
The above summary courtesy of the first paragraph of We Sail With the Tide (the latest of Terry Rossio's "Tales from the Set")

On October 24, 2014, Walt Disney World officials confirmed the rumor that has been around for years, the massive Sorcerer Mickey Hat is being removed from Disney's Hollywood Studios. Installed in 2001 as part of the "100 Years of Magic" celebration that marked Walt Disney's 100th birthday, the giant blue hat served as the park's icon for more than 10 years. No date has been given to when the hat will be removed other than "early 2015." There's also no word on if the hat will be replaced, destroyed or moved. Although many long-time fans of the park are happy about this news, other fans are still sad to see it go.
In addition, it's been revealed that The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow, which opened less than 2 years ago, will be closing. The…Read more >
Arr! Feast your eyes on the latest of Pirates of the Caribbean 5, mateys!
Recent whisperings and rumors seem to confirm that the fifth installment will be starting production soon and, as posted a few months back, is currently set to be released on July 7, 2017. Pirates of the Caribbean 5 will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg.
What other news is there? Let's see...
Though production is a fairly long time away, with shooting to begin early 2015, there are several signs that the latest adventure is moving forward. The first is a Twitter post made by producer Jerry Bruckheimer:
- Had a great meeting with Pirates costume designer Penny Rose yesterday. Exciting to see everything …

On your computer screen stands one of many fandoms of a popular Disney franchise. Pirates of the Caribbean Wiki, at least 2 thousand pages full of content (including images and videos) were made under the name of the series of the same name. Among the contributors is I, J Fan, who has been held up to you as the shining example of trueheartedness to the Pirates series. You have been supplied with a false idol, and not just because (as I may have mentioned here and there) having first watched The Curse of the Black Pearl in late 2006 - months before Dead Man's Chest went on DVD. Let me tell you the purpose of this post.

Ahoy mateys !
According to Film Music Reporter , Geoff Zanelli would come back to score Pirates 5. This is, as a huge soundtrack fan, an excellent new. You may know him as an "additionnal cues" composer who worked on every POTC film, and you may think it's not that big of a new. But the truth is: he was a lot more than that.
He composed some of the most iconic cues from the trilogy, including Barbossa is Hungry (originally called Broadside), Sword Crossed (originally called Moonlight Serenade), Lift Off (the parachute scene in AWE), Tia Dalma/Calyspo's theme (included in many tracks from DMC and AWE) and... Guess what ? Believe it or not, He's a Pirate. Of course he didn't invent the main theme, but he's the one who took Hans Zimmer's and Klaus Ba…Read more >
I've been a long term admirer of Orlando Bloom and his character Will Turner, so I'm delighted to hear the news that he could be set for a return. Of course, I will try not get my hopes too high, but nonetheless I am just over the moon at the moment.
Yes I'm indeed aware that there is quite an opinion divide on whether or not Will should be brought back... but let's just brush that aside for a moment; in a hypothetical sense, how could he fit into Pirates 5 without Elizabeth?Read more >
Ahoy maties !
With Jerrry Bruckheimer's comments, some of us were expecting Pirates 5, or DMTNT, to be released around 2016. Sadly (or not, depending on how you see it), Disney just announced July 7, 2017, to be its new official release date.
We can assume Bob Iger finally saw something he thought was worthy to get greenlit, which is good news.
Since the first draft was written in, I think, 2011, that gives them plenty of time to finalize it and make it the best story they can tell.
Of course, it could still be delayed, but if it happens, I doubt it'll be more than a couple of months. With Johnny Depp getting older, if they're not able to do it for 2017, I'm going to start to doubt the movie will ever happen...
So, what are your thoughts on t…Read more >

Ok, mates, the trailer for the upcoming pirate-themed tv series Crossbones is out. The series is set in 1715, during the Golden Age of Piracy, and as you probably know, the main villain in the series is Blackbeard, played by the famous actor John Malkovich. The series is based on the book The Republic of Pirates, which was written by Colin Woodard. In the trailer everything looks nice, from filthy pirates and salty wenches to locations, ships, etc. However, there is one thing that troubles me. In this incarnation, Blackbeard has no hair on his head, and he has a short, white beard. What kind of "Blackbeard" is that? This series hasn't even started yet, and I already think I don't like it.Read more >
Ever since Shanghai Disneyland's Treasure Cove was announced a few months back, there has been doubt that the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean installment is happening...a doubt, I'm afraid, that is ongoing to this day. In recent interviews, Disney executives Bob Iger and Alan Horn maintain (in separate occasions) that the fifth film has not yet been given the greenlight, saying there is no screenplay ready to be signed off.
Nevertheless, there is not much worry for Pirates fans. Praising directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (who are still attached to direct), Johnny Depp has stated that he was invited in to collaborate with screenwriter Jeff Nathanson to bring a "fresh and very different" Pirates film. Depp said he has high hopes for the …Read more >
Ahoy, Pirates fans! On my journeys through the worldwide web, I happened to look on upon the official Pirates of the Caribbean Facebook page and found this post. The post in question links to an "Oh My Disney" post made in honor of the popular character we know as James Norrington. I read the post myself and thought it was a fitting tribute to the character, and felt obliged to share it here, where hopefully it gets more attention.
From the films themselves to even behind the scenes, Norrington has been given good word on his character. On the DVD commentary of The Curse of the Black Pearl, the screenwriters revealed who the better swordsmen (in that particular film) Norrington was equally matched with Hector Barbossa, with Will Turner being the…

I came across the delightful news today that some players have received the clearance from Disney to publish a free replica of Pirates of the Caribbean Online known as Pirates Online Rewritten, while pushing the envelope by taking in our suggestions and even involvement in the updation of the game. It's full of promise and I'll be excited when it comes out. I also want to get involved in it, partciularly by suggesting the inclusion of other PotC canon material - such as the Shadow Lord and other villains; as well as various locations like Shipwreck Cove.
The first update they'd need in terms of locations would be the previously canceled Jolly Roger's Isle, which they're debating about. Some of the updates which people here who are aware of …Read more >
Throughout maritime history and the era known as the Golden Age of Piracy (spanning the 1600s to the mid-1700s) individuals who either engage in piracy or serve any of the Royal Navies used many types of ships, anywhere from a small sloop to a large warship. But generally, pirates gave preference to ships with the greatest speed, so any potential targets wouldn't out-sail them or if they wanted a quick escape if needed. Some ships are perfect for chasing pirates, others are the most feared on the seven seas. Crews are either doomed to cruise the oceans forever aboard ghost ships or free to sail the seas for eternity.
As yet another summer quickly approaching, I thought we'd bring up a topic closer to the mysterious waters of the Caribbean. …Read more >
- Jack's "bring me that horizon" at the end of Black Pearl was ab-libbed by Johnny Depp.
- If the statistics are to be believed, At World's End would be the most expensive film to be produced with a budget of $300 million.
- Disney execs (and fans of the theme park ride) freaked out on reports that Depp was getting his teeth capped with numerous gold teeth and piercings for movie. Depp's way of handling this was to take out the offending accessories when the Disney handlers complained... and then put them right back on as soon as they walked away
- Scenes were left out of At World's End which establish that, if the captain of the Flying Dutchman has someone to come home to at the end of his ten years, he can vacate the post to another.

On April 2014, while interviewing for his latest film Transcendence, Johnny Depp spoke briefly regarding the fifth installment of the Pirates series. Among his comments, Depp implied that Pirates 5 may be the last.
The following is from a video interview with Depp, posted April 2, 2014...
- We're getting somewhere very interesting in terms of a script. And I'm very lucky that Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney have invited me in to help collaborate with the writer to bring another Pirates film that's fresh, and very different. I think we owe it to all the people who went and saw the other ones, you know. To give them, maybe, what seems to probably be the last. But you never know.

- Legend has it that Captain Jack Sparrow has not blood, but water through his veins. Those pirates where a superstitious, cowardly lot.

On this day in 1967, Pirates of the Caribbean debuted at Disneyland in Anaheim. 47 years later, as part of The Walt Disney Company Annual Meeting of Shareholders, Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger unveiled creative details including the first-ever Pirates-themed land—named "Treasure Cove"—designed for the Shanghai Disney Resort. And interestingly enough, according to sources, it will include a new attraction—called Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle of the Sunken Treasure—which will feature a combination of new technology and innovation to bring guests along a pirate adventure with Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Davy Jones. Whether that means the resort will have a version of the original attraction or not is currently unknown...though it doe…
