The Escape from Cannibal Island was an escape attempt made by Captain Jack Sparrow and crew, who were previously captives of the cannibal tribe known as the Pelegostos.

The EscapeEdit

After Bootstrap Bill Turner reminded Jack Sparrow of his debt to Davy Jones, Jack wanted to find land to avoid attack by his leviathan, the Kraken. He sailed to a random island with his crew, intending to stay there. But he was taken captive by the Pelegosto tribe people. Will Turner, captured in Port Royal, went to find Jack for Cutler Beckett, so was rowed ashore by a Shrimper. He sensed something wrong when the Shrimper's brother refused to row him all the way to the shore because he though it was too dangerous. Will was ambushed the second he arrived, being hit by a dart. He met Jack, who was being treated as the Cannibal king, and he sent Will away. But he told him to help him in such a small voice that the Pelegostos could not hear. Will was sent to a cage made of other crewmembers' bones with some of the surviving crew, and planned to climb the cliff in the bone cage. But Leech, one of the Black Pearl crew, tried to climb early but was scared by a snake, and when his cage fell, its cord snapped and he was sent into the ravine. All the people in that cage were killed, and the Bridge native noticed this. Will and his allies had to run fast, under attack by the other cannibals. In the meanwhile, Jack managed to escape the bonfire by sending his followers to get more wood. Jack ran away and fell onto the ground near where the cages were rolling, and he reconvened with his crew. They swam away in the river, and made it to the beach where the Black Pearl was. They met Pintel and Ragetti, who escaped prison, and sent the Black Pearl back into the sea with everyone except for the Prison dog, who was left behind as the new king.

Notes and referencesEdit

  1. The timeline established in On Stranger Tides (which takes place in 1750) and Dead Men Tell No Tales (which takes place in 1751) sets the events of Dead Man's Chest around 1729. However, the exact placement still has to be officially confirmed by The Walt Disney Company.
