    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 New Year! 2016

    January 1, 2016 by J Fan

    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...

    August 16, 2015 by J Fan

    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...

    1. Jack Sparrow, Hector Barbossa, and Captain Salazar are once again confirmed.
    2. Brenton Thwaites' character is confirmed as a young man named "Henry"
    3. Kaya Scodelario's character is confirmed to be a "brilliant young scientist" named Carina Smyth.
    4. Years of speculation, rumors, etc Will Turner is now officially confirmed to appear in the film.

    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...

    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...

    The Story
    When Disney officially announced that production has begun on February 17, they also provided the synopsis:
