Deadline came with a list of potential directors for Pirates 5 !
Personally, I don't know any of them. But I did some digging and here's what I found :
(Before beginning, I just want to specify that it hasn't been confirmed by Disney or anything)...
- Fredrik Bond : He seems to have directed only one "known" movie (he doesn't even have a wikipedia page). It's called The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, it was released this year and it's really far of a Pirates type movie.
- Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg : Again, they're not that famous, but they directed a Jaws type movie called Kon-Tiki, taking place on a ship. Also, they directed a French/Mexican/American western, Bandidas, starring Penélope Cruz !
- Rupert Sanders : The only film he did was Snow…Read more >
I just saw this post about all of Disney's currently-known big 2015 film releases, including Pirates 5.
Courtesy of an article made by Brett Nachman of Geeks of Doom...
- "Johnny Depp will once again don his Captain Jack Sparrow attire for Pirates of the Caribbean 5. Disney certainly desires sustaining the Pirates brand and returning it to its glory days of 2006/2007. That two-year period included: the releases of Dead Man's Chest and At World's End, which grossed hundreds of millions of dollars in the United States alone; the openings of the re-themed attraction at Disneyland and Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom; and increased Pirates merchandise and themed parties at the parks. But that time has gone. On Stranger Tides, while successful internationall…

I couldn't help but show this, mainly because this seems a tad odd...
While at the premiere of Iron Man 3, a fan asked Robert Downey Jr. if he would take on Pirates 5 with Johnny Depp. Though it is hard to hear RDJ's response, I take it from the video's description that he wonders if Disney could afford both of them. Now, considering that this was given to a fan, I'm not sure if this should be considered as an official interest. More than likely just as a conversation between celebrity and fan. So take this with a grain of salt.
Just thought I should post this intriguing video...mostly because I wanted to see reactions from Marvel fans.
So should Captain Jack team with Iron Man?...or at least the man who…

I know a couple of you don't really care if Will & Elizabeth Turner (played by Orlando Bloom & Keira Knightley) are in any more potc movies, but I really hope Will & Elizabeth Turner (played by Orlando Bloom & Keira Knightley) are in future potc movies, due to the fact that's one of the reasons why On Stranger Tides was not that successful. Also I know A LOT of people who really want them back, so writers of potc please bring Orlando Bloom & Keira Knightley back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Everyone I really want Will & Elizabeth Turner in potc 5!!
If you agree please leave a comment and explain why you want them back!!Read more >
Well, do someone know what is the name of potc5?Read more >
Now that we all know what Pirates of the Caribbean 5's release date is(which is Friday July 10th 2015), when can we possibly expect its full movie title to be announced? Is it possible that it would be announced at the next D23 Expo event in Anaheim California, when that event takes place on August 9th through August 11th 2013 (2 years before Pirates of the Caribbean 5)? I am wondering if that is possible considering that Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides full movie title, was announced at the D23 Expo event that took place 4 years ago on Friday September 11th 2009 (2 years before Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides).Read more >
Dear friends, whether they be pirates or King's men, I just learned today that on the day of yesterday, March 28, 2013, Richard Griffiths aka our beloved King George Augustus, Duke of Luneburg, et cetera et cetera had passed away. This blog is dedicated to him being a part of the world of Pirates of the Caribbean.
Although it was a small role, or arguably a supporting role(given the ending credits), in On Stranger Tides, Richard Griffiths portrayed King George II in his pursuit to find the Fountain of Youth. Long story short for those who haven't seen the film yet(unlikely), the King and his men wanted to reach the fabled Fountain before the Spanish did, mainly so, as you can see in the quote above, that their King wouldn't gain eternal life.…

For a short time I edited this website a while ago. I'm back. I doubt anyone remembers me. Anyway, I just wanted to say that there's a POTC blog that needs more followers. It's typicaly updated every week with different facts about POTC and they post Holiday stuff too. Here's the link if anyone's interested. :)

Ahoy Pirates fans! This may be a bit awkward, but I need all the help I can get. As usual, I try to do some preparations regarding changes on POTC Wiki's Main Page by the end of each month, particularly the Poll you see on the right side. But, though I'm afraid to admit it, I've run out of poll ideas at the moment.
Now, I'm sure someone's gonna say "Why not make a poll about Pirates 5?" Well, reason for that being that I'm trying to wait for the opportune moment - i.e. around when production (hopefully) starts.
So yea, if anyone has any good poll ideas, please share! There should be enough ideas coming from 2 Disney attractions, 4 movies and a short film, 2 book series and a full-length novel, several games, and two cancelled but highly anticipa…

Just saw this video on YouTube and I must say is hilarious! And that's saying something as I'm not that big a lover of fan-made videos. This video was directed by Hans Hernke and stars Janty Chattaw as Captain Jack Sparrow. Simply put, Captain Jack finds a very valuable piece of treasure, ironically ending the same way as drinking rum. There's also a brief promotion to the fairly new attraction The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow. Enjoy, mates!Read more >
Ahoy, Pirates fans! This month you can celebrate the 46th anniversary of Pirates of the Caribbean, the first indoor ride-through adventure to be built on a grand scale at Disneyland Park. As the last Disneyland project that Walt Disney himself participated in designing, along with his team of Imagineers, this classic attraction has been a guest favorite since it opened on March 18, 1967 (three months after Disney's death).
Has it really been 46 years since Pirates of the Caribbean first opened at Disneyland? Well, mateys, it be true. Opening day kicked off with pirates invading New Orleans Square, sword fights and some poor scallywag walking the plank. The attraction became so popular that it inspired the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, in wh…

Hey. Just wanted to make a proposal. I'm an admin on Merlin Wiki, Survivor Wiki, Hey Arnold Wiki and Spongebob Wiki and they all have custom fonts installed to their headers.
This is what it looks like on wikis:
If the community agrees I can send the JFan the code so he can implement it for us here.
What are you thoughts? Yay or nay?Read more >
Ahoy mateys !
I don't have a lot of time, so let's go to the essential : Jerry Bruckheimer did an interview for The Lone Ranger and talked a bit about P5 : http://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/movie-talk/exclusive-lone-ranger-super-bowl-sneak-peek-161249557.html
I know it's not a lot, but we now know they have a good idea of the story (at least) and that Johnny liked it (though it would have surprised me he would have said something like "We've pitched the story to Johnny who really hated it" lol).Read more >
Well, this had been an curious month. First we find out that screenwriter Jeff Nathanson was hired to write Pirates of the Caribbean 5, then Disney greenlit the film for 2015. Then comes today, like some old people do, I decided to watch the original Looney Tunes cartoons...ok, I'm not THAT old but I do love me some Bugs Bunny. Interestingly enough, this classic trickster character was one of the many inspirations to Captain Jack Sparrow.
Even more interestingly, though I was only trying to watch some old time classic slapstick comedy, I saw a pirate-related episode with Bugs Bunny and Yosemite Sam, who was named "Pirate Sam" in one of the several pirate-themed episodes. So I thought I'd show them all off for fun and laughs:
- Captain Hareblower…
Every Pirates fan can agree that Ian McShane chrushed it as Blackbeard. He was sinister, foreboding and an all around devilish pirate. Well now mates, a new actor takes up the helm as the infamous captain of the Queen Anne's Revenge! His name is Hugh Laurie, though you might know him as Dr. House.
Yes, Hugh Laurie is star as Blackbeard in NBC's Crossbones, a new series that is said to be in production this fall. The main premise is that of a skilled assian, known as Lowe, who is hired by the British authorities to gain Blackbeard's trust than murder him. But of course, complications will arise.
At first, I was doubtful of Laurie as a pirate captain, but then I was reminded of him cheeky nature on his show House. Additonaly, Laurie will be able…Read more >
Over the holidays I was given a book entitled Blackbeard's Pirates and the Evil Mummies by James Black. Now that midterms are over I finally decided to sit down and read it. While I'm only in the beginning, I say it is an okay novel so far but it has not become as great as other pirate tales. I do, though, promise to push on and read till the end before giving my final judgements.
Any who, I was wondering if anyone read some other pirate books that would like to recommend to me or others on our fair Wiki.
I'll get the ball rolling by recommending my Top Pirate Books. This list in no particular order because I have enjoyed some more than other.

Great news, Pirates fans! The Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures has announced new upcoming release dates for the next several years. You can see the list here, but that's not what I'm here to talk about. Among those dates, Disney has officially announced the release date for the yet untitled Pirates of the Caribbean 5! According to Disney, Pirates 5 is currently set for July 10, 2015.
Excited? Curious if Disney will keep this date? Or do you wanna know the bloody title already?!
Either or, rejoice and let's all hope this release date stays as is! :)
Crediting the find to User:CutlerBeckett, it turns out this news is even more official as the announcement of the film's release date made it as far as POTC's official Facebook! :)

So, Jeff Nathanson... Is that confirmed? Is he really going to do the script for P5? I must say, I don't have faith in him... Well, yes, I liked "The Terminal", it's a great movie in its category. But do you remember what he did to Indiana Jones??? We can't have that on Pirates! Imagine how would Jack look if he was married! That's very wrong. I have never thought Indiana Jones would get married and have a child but it happened when Jeff Nathanson wrote the story.
It's funny because we had discussion about captain Jack's son and we metioned Indiana Jones and now I read "Variety" and find out that the man who (sorry if I'm wrong but this is my oppinion) ruinned Indiana Jones franchise is hired to do the script for P5.
If anyone has some infor…Read more >
Ahoy all! I hope you're all having a great year so far. This blog might be more interesting and debatable, depending on who's for or against certain things. The subject is Captain Hector Barbossa's appearance in Pirates Online.
Now, we all know the story about Barbossa in the movies...at least I hope we do. After his epic fight with Jack Sparrow in Isla de Muerta, he was killed by Jack in Curse of the Black Pearl. By the end of Dead Man's Chest, Barbossa was brought back to life by the voodoo mystic Tia Dalma. But what happened in between?
For those who strictly followed movies, they might say "Duh, Barbossa was dead until the end of Dead Man's Chest!" Others may say that he was brought back to life before the events of Dead Man's Chest, mostly b…

'Ello there, mates! Sorry I haven't write so long but I've been busy and I didn't know what to write about. So, I am, as you know, true fan of PotC although I'm not able to see the ride (except on YouTube, so sad, eh?) or to collect books. And as true fan I analyse every move, every look, every sentence of all characters in PotC movies.
Yesterday I was thinking about Isla de Muerta (I like to recreate scenes from movies (PotC movies) in my head, weird, I know :D ) and I thought: "What was Jack's real plan?!" And now I ask you. If someone knows what was Jack's real plan in Isla de Muerta (I mean plan before starting the duel with Barbossa and the battle between cursed crew and Norrington's men) please write in comment! If you have some theor…Read more >
Well, fellow Pirates fanatics, the New Year is upon us all! Last year, 2012, was a year where we had to deal with events good or bad - all a center of intrigue. But those who follow Pirates-related news know the following events that occurred, mainly during the Fall...
- Several unfortunate deaths of people involved in the Pirates franchise: Bob Anderson (exactly one year ago!), and Ginny Tyler (July 13). *It should be noted that while it is known that Bob Anderson was the original sword master from The Curse of the Black Pearl(and many, many more movies), it is unknown what Ginny Tyler's role was - long story short, she was a Disney employee, but her role in POTC is unknown(it is often mistaken that she was the voice of Carlos' wife, when it was a…
So far i made up these random ideas for movies
here they are:
MOVIE 5: The Island of Cortez
It starts with Hector Barbossa going to see Elizabeth telling her that he found a way to cure Will. Then ANgelica lures Sparrow to her with the doll to help her escape from her island and reunite with some members of her crew. they plan to revive blackbeard. Barbossa tells Elizabeth that on Cortez's island there are 2 crystals when held by someone and will they can give the curse to them. He also has motives of getting treasure and the sword of cortez. They set off to find the crystals, and also Angelica's crew are heading there in order to take the sword of cortez. They revive blackbeard in the process. In the final scene all three ships are at the is…Read more >

Well, I guess I committed a self-fulfilling prophecy...I wanted to do this on the dot but I forgot! I certainly deserve to do this for 5 hours. But then, I think we all pretty much forgotten this birthday of one important person.
Anyway, as from The Rolling Stones' Facebook post...I like to wish a Happy Birthday to Keith Richards, who we all know as Captain Teague, Keeper of the Code and the father of Captain Jack Sparrow!

I'm sure we all hope Mr. Richards had a great day and here's hoping that he'll still be up for another venture into the world of Pirates of the Caribbean for the potential fifth film! :)

Friends, I've been wondering for some time what happened to the Dutchman after Will came home. What do you think? We know that the Dutchman must have a captain. Who is new captain? Not who is but who could be?!

Ahoy fellow crewmates. I haven't done a blog post for a while but this one is a pretty simple question. Which do you prefer, East India Trading Company or British Royal Navy? I personally prefer the Royal Navy especially in CotBP because it seems to be a lot less evil than the Trading Company. So what do you think mates?Read more >
Ahoy my fellow Pirates Wikians!
Yes Pirates fans, after an incredibly long break after On Stranger Tides was released, Captain Jack is back! In a previous blog post I made last month, I posted some updates of the newest Disney attraction, particularly relating to the Pirates movies: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow. Now, after many months of waiting, I'm happy to say here and now that Walt Disney Imagineering has done it again and it's now officially opened! Though I can't really understand why they would have an official opening after the attraction's been open for weeks now.(to quote Gibbs: Everyone's thinking it, I'm just saying it. xD)
Anyway, to celebrate the official opening, I'm doing two things:

Alright guys we all know about captain teague in POTC. We seen him a couple of times in two movies. I think we should see him much more involved in the movie. What do you guys think? Should he get more screen time or just have a cameo in the movie like in the previous 2 movies.Read more >
Way back in a previous blog post I made back in May, I posted a certain whispering and rumor that Walt Disney Imagineering was developing a new attraction relating to the Pirates movies: The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow. Now I'm happy to say...it is indeed happening! - though a bit later as originally stated.

Our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering just shared these first renderings of what you can expect at this new walk-through attraction when it officially opens on December 6. In it, guests will journey deep into an eerie lost grotto, where a mysterious pirate skull puts them to the test to see if they have what it takes to set sail with the legendary Captain Jack Sp…
Ok, admittedly, this blog was partially inspired after playing LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game.
We all know the story. After the big battle in At World's End, Captain Jack Sparrow began his search for the Fountain of Youth, which continued several years later into the events of On Stranger Tides, where he's forced to help Blackbeard and his daughter Angelica find the Fountain, followed swiftly by the Barbossa-led British Navy and the Spanish Armada. But what happened in between the movies?...or maybe even before them?Here is what we (should) know, besides the most important fact that several years had already passed...
- Captain Jack had likely spent much time trying to find the Fountain, going so far as memorizing the route to the …

I have always wondered where jolly roger came from. Was it a spell gone wrong or is he somehow related to Davy Jones and or share a similar fate.Read more >
If the Flying Dutchman encountered the Queen Anne's Revenge while still under the command of Davy Jones, it is almost definite both captains would order an attack. The Sword of Triton would certainly give Blackbeard an advantage, but Jones cannot be slain without first possessing his heart from the Dead Man's Chest. It seemingly would be an equally matched battle, but who do you guys think would win? I have to choose the Dutchman, Blackbeard or Davy Jones would eventually board their opposing vessel, and although Blackbeard would surely put up an excellent fight, Jones would overwhelm and kill him in the end.Read more >
Well mates, Halloween, or All Hallows' Eve as some like to call it, creeps ever so closer as the most supernatural month of the year. And it seems that time of year as powerful magic was already brewing with ol' Jolly Roger's hex, the Curse of the Muertos Moon, being cast over the citizens and pirates residing in the Caribbean. Those at Pirates of the Caribbean Online will likely have their hands full with that, to raid, pillage, plunder, and otherwise pilfer their weasely black guts out...well, more than usual.
Although that doesn't mean there can't be any fun for those not able to play Pirates Online or, for some, video games like LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean...there's always the movies! Yes, four adventures involving the supernatural and the…Read more >
This is only a random idea, but, does anyone agree that we should have two courts of supervising users instead of one? To elaborate, I mean having a Brethren Court and a Court of Directors. The Brethren would remain in charge and all, but perhaps the Court of Directors could have their own specific tasks to fulfill, such as "cleaning up" articles gramatically, ensuring articles have few or no redlinks, and locating new photos. Having two governing bodies would allow users to embrace their natures of a pirate or EITC officials...Read more >

I would like to give credit of finding this update to our very own POTC Wiki user User:Mr. Joshamee Gibbs! Probably wouldn't have found it without his recent post. ;)

Mermaids added to Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Magic Kingdom

Hi guys, I wondered yesterday who would win in this fight. Let's say Flying Dutchman didn't come back after Davy Jones' death. Let's say Will and Dutchman were to weak for new fight.

After looking at numerous warrings over what is accurate or inaccurate regarding P5 news, I decided to make this blog clarifying what is 100% true or likely false. That way, I can show all official sources we have, and I won't have to repeat myself. Now, I hate to bring people down, but just to try and end this war over something that really shouldn't be warring about at the moment...mostly because it involves the world of journalism...
To open discussion, I like to present the undeniable fact that Pirates 5 is nowhere near being ready to film at the moment.
