Ahoy, mateys, and welcome aboard! It is a pleasure, as always, to be here with you. As the end of 2013 approaches, some may reflect on what's been going on for the past year. Besides growing our content, the past year has been busy with new releases, updates, and much, much, more!
In the slider below, you can see some of the more well-known affairs showcased by either POTC Wiki or Disney throughout the year...
Read it, enjoy, and in case I'm unable to say it, Happy Holidays! :)Read more >
Now that it has been revealed/announced that Alice in Wonderland 2 has been given a 'May 27th 2016' theatrical release date, does that mean that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will or might be given a late July 2016 theatrical release date? The reason i am asking is because I do not expect for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, to be released to theaters any later then July 22nd 2016 or July 29th 2016. If it just so happens to eventually get a July 2016 release date, i think the most likely release date it could be given is July 22nd 2016 or July 29th 2016. Which would ironically be about 2 months after Alice in Wonderland 2 is released to theaters on May 27th 2016.Read more >
You may have read it here, or perhaps found out after a trip to Disneyland, but Blackbeard is no longer in the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction as of this month. Ok, small clarification: posts have been made where it would seem Davy Jones appears solo in the Disneyland version of the ride...that's it. Odds are, fans of Blackbeard can still get a glimpse of the legendary "pirate all pirates fear" at the Magic Kingdom version. As you may well know, both characters appeared in the ride's "waterfall effect", with Blackbeard being introduced to coincide with the 2011 release of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Simply put, if you wanna see Blackbeard on the ride, you needs to go to the Magic Kingdom at Disney World. Otherwise, Disne…

Ahoy mateys! As you may well know, there was an announcement in September that the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series was delayed. Therefore, most of the information may or may not be accurate at this time...or perhaps, the near future. Nothing is set in stone, but things can change. And so I decided to post an updated version of a previous blog, which was a rundown of everything we know about a possible fifth film in the Pirates series based on all the statements, hints, rumors and speculations released so far.
For the curious, you can see the original blog post here.Read more >
Properly warned ye be, says I. While these two blogs are similar in nature, they are different in some areas... even in between the same content. So proceed …
Welcome, foolish mortals... Oh, hang on... wrong Disney ride! Anyway, kindly step all the way in please and make room for everyone. There's no turning back now. On to it, then. Some of you may already seen or heard that the official Disney Pirates site had been changed. Yes, all four adventures are now together in one spot that only the brave or foolhardy venture in. Aye, you must be stouthearted, indeed, to enter this cursed place.
And so, in the spirit of Halloween, or All Hallows' Eve as some like to call it, I thought we could share which aspect of the Pirates of the Caribbean world (or even piracy in general) is the most thrilling, scariest, etc. It doesn't even have to be from the films - it can be about anything that appeared in other PO…

Disney is developing a new Facebook game called Pirates of the Caribbean: Isles of War. The game entered closed beta last month and will be released soon.

It was announced today that Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer Films will be severing their formal First-look Partnership in 2014.
Jerry Bruckheimer will still be producing Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is still under production, as well as National Treasure 3, which is early in development.
The end of this deal should not harm the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise in any way, and future movies could still be able to be produced beyond Pirates 5 if both studios wish to make them. All this means is that Disney will no longer have Bruckheimer as the "go-to guy" for live action Disney films anymore. So this basically means we won't be seeing any solo Disney and Bruckheimer films such as Prince of Persia, The Lone Ranger, and The Sorcerer'…Read more >
Exciting news, Pirates of the Caribbean fans! Although Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was delayed, more info has come out about the movie, and this time fans are getting plot details!
According to Hypable, the script is still getting reworked, but highlights of the plot are as follows:
- “there’s going to be a new female lead, a sparring partner for Jack Sparrow. She’s nothing like him, mind you – despite being suspected of witchcraft, she’s actually a woman of science. Expect some sexual chemistry, but also expect it to be a touch one sided…”
- “As for witches, they’re central to whole conceit. There are some other, actual witches involved. If Tia Dalma, from the second and third films, makes another appearance, it’s a minor one bu…
Dear friends, whether ye be loyal to the Jolly Roger or the King’s Colors, know ye that our beloved friend Ann C. Crispin, the author of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Price of Freedom, is no longer with us. After a two-year struggle with cancer, she passed away on September the 6th, in the Year of Our Lord 2013. This is her last message on her Facebook page:“I want to thank you all for your good wishes and prayers. I fear my condition is deteriorating. I am doing the best I can to be positive but I probably don't have an awful lot of time left. I want you all to know that I am receiving excellent care and am surrounded by family and friends.“
Know ye that she wasn't just an author; she was a good friend who always stayed in contact with fans…

Yes, Pirates fans, you didn't misread...
Disney decided to change Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales release date from July 10, 2015 to (potentially) somewhere around summer 2016. Yeah, for those who were highly looking forward to it, it's disappointing, but at the same time, this can only make the movie better. Of course, it's also giving more chances for DMTNT to be a box office success because it won't have the competition it would have had in 2015 (which is maybe the biggest blockbuster year ever).
Here's what Disney's production president Sean Bailey had to say about it :
“Like audiences around the globe, we have high expectations for Jack Sparrow’s next adventure and we want to have all the right elements in place,” said Dis…Read more >

Billy Donnelly of This Is Infamous has reported the title for Pirates of the Caribbean 5.
According to Donnelly, he got off the phone with directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, having talked about their Oscar-nominated film Kon-Tiki coming to Blu-ray on August 27. And being that they were announced as the directors of Pirates 5 back in May, he tried to get any tidbits. Taking from Donnelly's article, they seemed genuinely enthused about the script they'll be working with and also revealed something worthwile: a title!
And what is this title, you may ask? Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which harkens back one of the famous lines from the original Disneyland attraction that inspired the franchise to begin with. Nothing more…

Yes, Pirates fans, it's true. Players all over the world have just learned that Pirates of the Caribbean Online, the massively multiplayer online role playing game based on the beloved movie series, is indeed closing.
It's a shame, as the game had some info that POTC Wiki used with great pride. From in-game stuff like the vile pirate Jolly Roger or the many new-ish islands of the Caribbean to any extra information about the Queen Anne's Revenge or Sword of Triton prior to the release of On Stranger Tides.
Officially launched on October 31, 2007, Pirates Online allowed players to unleash their characters, captain their ships, assemble their crews, and battle their enemies in the adventure of a lifetime. On August 20, 2013, it was announced on the of…Read more >
Update 11/5/2013: On September 10, 2013, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 has been delayed, meaning most of the information presented in this blog may be redundant. To clarify for new viewers of this blog, I will cross out the now-to-be-false information, but leave it so that the previously-confirmed truths will be known. But for P5 news that still stands true, quotes that may still be of value shall remain as is.Read more >
In spite of this, viewers should only focused on the news, quotes, and other content under "Confirmed", as it was made clear that the content under "Rumor/Speculation" shouldn't be taken as fact, for now, as neither Disney nor Bruckheimer confirmed any of them.
And word of warning: I have modified this info in an updated version of this blo…

Had a different blog post in mind, but this had something that definitely had to be seen here, even though it's a bit overdue. As the title suggests, Jerry Bruckheimer, the producer behind the Pirates of the Caribbean series, has finally received a Hollywood Walk of Fame Star in a special ceremony last month on June 24. The ceremony took place outside the El Capitan Theatre and featured a nice speech from, among other guests, Captain Jack Sparrow himself - Johnny Depp! You can see some of it, mainly with Depp's speech, in the video below.
He may not be the most popular folk out there, particularly since he's behind the camera. But as Johnny Depp said in his speech, Mr. Bruckheimer is a legend to us all. S…Read more >
Due to recent changes in United States Federal Law, specifically the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), anonymous editing has been disabled on the Pirates of the Caribbean Wiki. You can read the full story on the Staff Blog here, but below is a brief summary.
COPPA was passed to protect the privacy of children, defined as any person who is under the age of 13. This legislation prevents companies from collecting various bits of "information" from children. The July 1st update expanded this "information" to include IP addresses. The Media Wiki software, which is what wikis are mostly made of, use IP addresses to monitor the anonymous editing. Now, because there isn't an easy way to monitor the age of anonymous editors, wikis whic…Read more >

Mr. Bruckheimer had been interviewed by Indiewire and he gave his opinion about the new directors as well as some little updates on the movie.
Here's an insert :
We asked Bruckheimer what made him so sure that the relatively unknown filmmakers could tackle such a beloved (not to mention lucrative) franchise.
"We saw their movie early on, maybe six months ago, and I saw some of their other work, which I thought was terrific. That convinced me," Bruckheimer explained. "They were interested in doing it and they flew over and we showed them a script that we were working on and they had really amazing ideas." The producer also offered a progress report on the project: "Last Friday they came to Hollywood and settled in and started working on it. We'r…Read more >

Many birthdays were to happen this month, or already happened, with those involved in the Pirates franchise. Birthdays including Jonathan Pryce (Governor Weatherby Swann), Sebastian Armesto (King Ferdinand), and more to come. But for today, we are to celebrate one of the most important Pirates-related birthdays of all...the birthday of Captain Jack Sparrow himself, Johnny Depp! Yes, friends, you will always remember this as the day Johnny Depp turns...50? Gee, where did the time go.
The Kentucky-born star rose to fame as undercover cop Tommy Hanson in the popular television series 21 Jump Street in the 1980s. He became a teen idol, and in later years turned to films for more challenging roles. Despite having been nominated for three Academy Awa…

Ahoy lads and lasses!
While I wasn't able to watch Kon-Tiki, the film directed by the new directors of Pirates 5, I instead re-watched Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. While revisiting the film, I noticed a couple of things that can cause some disscusion. I do not believe these things to be more than trvial, but as a community I think we should observe them anways, for kicks.
To continue, I found these two things that left me with questions:
1. How did the Crew of the Black Pearl make it to Singapore?
In the beginning of the film, it its establish that Barbossa, Elizabeth and Will come to Sao Feng to retrieve both the Navigational Charts and a ship and a crew. This leads me to wonder how the pirates traveled to the other side of the world…Read more >
Well my theology exam is tomorrow so what better way to perpare for that than to talk about Pirates 5!
Ladies and gentlemen, scoundrels and swashbucklers, I believe the new directors will be a boon to the Pirates franchise. Before I continue, watch the trailer of their work Kon-Tiki in the link below:
Now I was blown away while witnessing a few of these scenes, particularly ones on the beach an in the open ocean. Also, the part with the sharks gave me chills! Imagine having Jack Sparrow or Angelica in that situation; it'll surely being a memorable part of the film.
Additonally, the movie seems to have a sense of adventure, harkening to something like Ro…Read more >
Well mates, an unexpected Pirates update has arisen. Before there are announcements of a cast, crew, etc, there's pretty much always a director to choose first. A director who would...well, direct the making of a film. Generally to control a film's artistic and dramatic aspects, and visualizes the script while guiding the technical crew and actors in the fulfillment of that vision. "And who is this director?" you may ask. Well, according to Deadline...
'Kon-Tiki' Helmers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg Land 'Pirates Of The Caribbean 5'
Yes, dear friends, Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg - the directors of previous films Kon-Tiki and Bandidas - are now said to be chosen as the new directors for the potential fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film.…

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.…

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…

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.
