Hi! I just watched the first four movies for the first time! I saw the 5th movie in the theaters but I don't really remember it so I am going to watch that one next!
Pirates of the Caribbean has always been one of my favorite attractions at Disneyland! SOMETIMES, I would even call it my number one favorite. I remember when I first went on that ride, I went on it like 4 times in row. I finally decided to watch the movies and they were pretty good!
My favorite: I can not decide between the 1st, 2nd and 4th (basically all of them except for the 3rd).
Least favorite: The third movie (At World's End) was definitely my least favorite because I had no Idea what was going on. After staring at the screen for 2 hours and 49 minutes without knowing what…
Unfortunately, mates, our beloved actor, David Bailie, aka Mister Cotton, is no longer among us. He passed away on March 6, 2021. Rest in peace, Mister Cotton. You will be remembered.

Ahoy, mates. Look what I found. One earlier version of Jeff Nathanson's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales script. Enjoy!
I've never really been active on this wiki, and I'm going to change that. Anyone need help with anything?

, one of the two men behind the POTC franchise!]] On behalf of the PotC Wiki community, I thank Terry Rossio, the man who alongside Ted Elliott wrote the first four Pirates of the Caribbean films, for allowing me to interview him about his work in the beloved franchise he helped to form. Last year, I posted an interview request for Mr. Rossio. Some of you may complain that the interview took so long to be published, but be reasonable, as Mr. Rossio has been working on Godzilla vs. Kong, a forthcoming guaranteed blockbuster. He thanks our patience. After all, Mr. Rossio was very kind to me and answered all our questions.
Many thanks for answering all our questions, Terry. We can't wait to know more about your next films :)
And now, here's the in…
I'm here to let you know that staff have exciting plans for the future of video on Fandom, including the future of what was Featured Video (FV) and what is replacing it.
A replacement for FV, titled The Loop, is set to be a mini-show that will be different for each vertical, highlighting the latest news from topics relating to that vertical. The best bit? These videos will use wiki articles and will encourage users to visit the wikis featured in the videos to find out more.
As a new episode of The Loop will be released weekly, you will see a wide variety of wikis of featured so there is every chance yours will be featured too!
Please see the latest staff blog for more details and feel free to ask me any questions!
Secondly, staff post…
Hi guys! Fandom staff posted two important and exciting blogs recently which I wanted to make you aware of!
- Global taxonomy
The title sounds really fancy and complicated, but this boils down to Fandom recommending content you want to see. Fandom has received feedback from users who are receiving recommendations to visit certain wikis they are not interested in.
With this data driven approach, users on a wiki will receive recommendations for new communities to visit based on what typical readers of that subject are interested in. That way you can attract like-minded users to your community and you get to visit other wikis you are interested in!
Please do read the blog for more information. If you have any questions on this, please feel free to l…

This be yer friendly reviewin' buccaneer standin' before ye, once again to show ye scallywags another shilling of an analysis.
Today, I be givin' ye land lovers another doubloon of an analysis by analyzing "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales".
Here be the rundown of this here tale (clears throat back to normal speaking voice):
Henry Turner, the son of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, desperately seeks something that can break his father's curse as captain of the Flying Dutchman. The treasure he's looking for to do so...is the Trident of Poseidon. While doing so, he searches for Jack Sparrow, believing that he can help him find the trident.
Meanwhile, though, Jack Sparrow's days have been struck by a string of mis…
Ahoy, me harteys!
This be yer friendly reviewing buccaneer digging up for ye another buried treasure.
And today, I be giving ye scalawags another doubloon-of-a-review by analyzing "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Strangers Tides".
Here be the rundown of it *clears throat back to normal voice*:
During his search for the legendary Fountain of Youth, Jack Sparrow suddenly crosses paths with an element from his past: Angelica. An old flame of Jack, who kidnaps him and takes him aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, a ship commandeered by the despicable Blackbeard. And apparently, they too are after the fountain, and they want Jack to lead them to it since he knows the way.
As the journey progresses, though, Jack finds himself having unusual feelings toward…
This be yer old reviewing buccaneer here with another word-filled treasure to show ye.
And today, following me latest film review, I be here to give ye sea dogs an analysis of "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End".
Here be the rundown of it *clears throat*:
Following the events of "Dead Man's Chest", Lord Cutler Beckett has been ruthlessly ruling the seven seas in a conquest to wipe out every pirate into extinction. All of it with a particular thanks to having control over the heart of Davy Jones and making him do everything he tells him to do.
Intent on ending Beckett and Jones's tyranny, Will Turner, Elizabeth Swann, and Hector Barbossa (who somehow returned in the last film) must travel to the end of the world and free Jac…
Ahoy, me harteys!
This be yer friendly buccaneer here with some more buried treasure to show ye.
And today, to state why I once again be talking like a pirate, I'll be reviewing "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest".
Here be the rundown of this here tale *clears throat*:
A long while after the events of the first film, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann are set to have a wedding and be married. However, everything is suddenly brought to a halt by the arrival of Lord Cutler Beckett, who arrests them because of associating with Jack Sparrow.
However, Beckett offers to pardon Elizabeth's arrest, but only if Will does one thing for him:
Bring him Jack's compass, so that it may direct Beckett to what he wants most.
Meanwhile, as Jack continues to…
Ahoy, mateys! This be yer newest buccaneer here, digging up for ye what I'd like to call the perfect first blog post, long buried under the sands and showed in other places, but finally carried here.
And today, I bring to all of ye scalawags my review of “Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl”.
Here be the summary of this here treasure *clears his throat*:
When Elizabeth Swann (played by Keira Knightley), who is also the daughter of Governor of Weatherby Swann (played by Jonathan Pryce), is kidnapped by pirates during an attack at her home, blacksmith Will Turner (played by Orlando Bloom) makes it his mission to find and rescue her. In doing so, he teams up with the eccentric-but-full-of-surprises Captain Jack Sparrow (pla…
, one of the creators of the Pirates of the Caribbean universe]] Hello mates! This is my second post in the POTC Wiki blog, so I wanted to speak with all of you present about this matter, which is about another interview. Last time, I made an interview with Chris Schweizer, who wrote the Pirates of the Caribbean comic book series. Now, we have here another writer. Ladies and gentlemen, now we have here to none other than.....Terry Rossio!!!
Yeah, along Ted Elliott, Mr. Rossio is one of the writers who created the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, which in turn is responsible for his wiki existing. Having wrote the first four films and at some degree the fifth film, Terry has left the series long ago and is now working on other projects, being…
Hello everyone. You have probably already seen this interview which X9 The Android did with Chris Schweizer, the man who wrote the Pirates of the Caribbean comic book series published by Joe Books Ltd. Well, here's that same interview, but in its original form, with all the illustrations. Enjoy.
Thank you very much for letting us, the PotC fan community interview you. As you may know, we, the fans, seek some contact with PotCVIPs so we can ask them for their experience working with this fantastic franchise created by the House of the Mouse, and discover more about the making of this world. Even though your work in the PotC comic books may have not been of the same size as a novel, your contributions to the PotC world are really important beca…
Happy birthday today to Weatherby Swann, the King's governor of Port Royal... I mean Jonathan Pryce. Born on this day in 1947 in Holywell, North Wales.
Here's a short bio from the IMDB:
- Subtle, incisive actor who can play Casper Milquetoast types and sinister villains alike. A stage veteran, Pryce studied at London’s Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and acted with the Royal Shakespeare Company in such productions as “Measure for Measure” and “Antony and Cleopatra.” His early film credits include Voyage of the Damned (1976), Loophole (1980), The Ploughman’s Lunch (1983), and Something Wicked This Way Comes (also 1983, as Mr. Dark), but it was his performance as the timid clerk Sam Lowry in Terry Gilliam’s nightmare comedy Brazil (1985) that made…
POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT FOR POTC 6 AND PREVIOUS MOVIES!
So, I was browsing youtube a few weeks ago, closer to the begining of 2019. I found a person in the comments of one video mentioning something called: Pirates of the Caribbean: Sea of Wrath. So I looked it up on google and came across this article. https://comicvine.gamespot.com/profile/ravenvice01/lists/pirates-of-the-caribbean-6-wrath-of-the-seas/66241/
Now I am not exactly sure that this will actually be the 6th movie in the franchise, considering to very possible reboot. I also don't know if this is a fan made plot or anything, but evidence suggests that it will be a true installment of the series.
It will feature some things hinted at by the last movie such as Posiedon being a char…
On behalf of the PotC Wiki community, I thank Chris Schweizer for allowing me to interview him about his work in the Pirates series. Last year, I posted an interview request for Chris Schweizer, writer of the Pirates of the Caribbean comic book series published by Joe Books Ltd. Some of you may complain that the interview took so long to be published, but be reasonable, as Mr. Schweizer was working on a big project with strict deadlines and as such he needed time. He thanks our patience. After all, Mr. Schweizer was very kind to me and answered all our questions and he even send us some process sketches and concept art indeed to show us how his role in the franchise was. Coincidentally, he send me the interview with the answers just on April 6, …
Hello mates! This is my first post in the POTC Wiki blog, so I wanted to speak with all of you present about this matter. It turns out that last year, Chris Schweizer was very kind and considerate to answer certain questions about the Pirates of the Caribbean comic book series published by Joe Books Ltd. Mr. Schweizer, as I mentioned, was very friendly to share some production details, so it occurred to me that maybe we could interview him and ask him even more details about the realization of his series of comics and maybe something more about his career as a writer.
Though his involvement in the franchise was little in comparison to other POTC crewmembers, Chris is still yet a crewmember of the POTC family, so I really think that it would be …
This is pretty sad news. I didn't really like 5 or had any interest in 6, but a reboot stops the current franchise dead in its tracks.
From the looks of it, it's going to be based on Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End. Characters appearing in this trailer are Captain Jack Sparrow, Joshamee Gibbs, Hector Barbossa, Elizabeth Swann, Will Turner, and Tia Dalma.
Non POTC characters included in the POTC segmants are Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Luxord .
As a guess, I imagine Davy Jones, Cutler Beckett, James Norrington, Sao Feng, Bootstrap Bill, and the other crewmembers of The Flying Dutchman could make appearnces as well.
Davy Jones makes thematic sense in the Kingdom Hearts series, as the situation with his own heart closely resembles that plight of The Nobodies , who are the bodies of those who have lost their hearts to darkness.
As a side note: The POTC franchise will receiv…
I've wanted to do this for a while, not for any particular reason, just to see what the template would look like. Obviously, this isn't a real template, though. Just to clarify, I'm not sure if I got the expanded universe crews in the correct order, but the ones from the film obviously are.
Jack Sparrow's full crew
Captain: Jack Sparrow
Fitzwilliam P. Dalton III – Timothy Hawk – Constance Magliore – Jean Magliore – Arabella Smith – Tumen
Bowen – Jack Sparrow – Jeff – Pirate
Captain: Jack Sparrow
William Banks – Nathan Bolton – Chamba – Frank Connery –Lucius Featherstone – Robert Greene
Sam Hopkins – Logan – Lemuel Matthews – Mulligan – Samuel Newton – Dan O’Shaughnessy – Jedidiah Parker

As I did for all of the other films in the franchise, I am going to list every death in At World's End;
- 206 Pirates - thirty-five are hanged by the East India Trading Company at Fort Charles including a young cabin boy, another three are seen as dead bodies having previously been hanged, another seven bodies are seen being loaded into a carriage by EITC marines, five are shot dead by East India Trading Company soldiers as they break into Sao Feng's bathhouse, one is crushed by a door knocked down by marines, Park is shot in the head by Ian Mercer, one is stabbed then thrown outside by a soldier, one is stabbed by multiple soldiers simulataniously then thrown into a stall, one is stabbed by a soldier, five are shot dead by Company soldiers, L…
So my friend just recently had a baby, and he agreed to let me show the baby Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl for the first time. It may have taken a few weeks and a few more lies to convince him, but yesterday I introduced his son to the series. So, what did he think of it?
He loved it, or at least the battle scenes. He was (literally and figuratively) asleep during the other scenes. However, he did get quite scared during the scene where the Cursed crew are first seen as Skeletons. He hasn't spoken yet, but I'm hoping his first words will be something like "Jack Sparrow" or "savvy". Unfortunately, my friend won't let me show his baby Dead Man's Chest or At World's End until he's at least five because they have "gruesome" …
Okay. I don't know if this is even allowed to go on this wiki, however a wiki was founded in 2016 that is focused on showcasing the many minor and unnamed characters who appeared in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. I just wanted to let any potential editors know that there is a wiki out there that accepts Pirates of the Caribbean minor characters, if their pages have been deleted in the past on this wiki.
Here's the link for anyone interested:
This is just a script I'm writing for fun. It's set between Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. This is just the first scene. I thought I'd post it here just to see if anyone thought it was any good.
EXT: TORTUGA, DAY The sun rises over Tortuga as a carriage pulled by two strider white horses moves hastily through a mucky street, past an old tramp eating off of the ground. The carriage continues on its path, passing a wanted poster for Captain Hector Barbossa, the bounty now up from 10,000 guineas to 15,000. Inside the carriage is Barbossa himself, in his unmistakable pirate garb; black jacket, big boots, a wig beneath a massive hat with a feather atop it, and a belt with two flintl…
I'm new to the wiki, anything I need to know to get started?
Just like I did for the Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man's chest and On stranger tides, I'm counting the deaths in Dead men tell no tales.
- 195 Pirates - at least three are seen aboard the Ruddy Rose shortly before the ship enters the Devil's Triangle and are all killed by the Crew of the Silent Mary, an Old pirate is stabbed in the stomach by a Cursed soldier, the skeleton of another pirate serves as the Queen Anne's Revenge's figurehead, forty-seven skulls likely belonging to pirates are seen inside the ship's cabin, nine are seen aboard the Red Dragon shortly before it is crushed by the Silent Mary, the decapitated heads of two pirates are seen inside a basket having previously been executed by the Guillotine, the dead body of a pirate is see…
I already made blog posts for deaths in both The Curse of the Black Pearl and Dead Man's Chest, but I decided to skip At World'd End and do it last, as it has the most deaths by far. So, here's On Stranger Tides.
- 2 Spanish explorers - one dies of his wounds in Cádiz, Juan Ponce de León is seen as a skeleton in his ship.
- 1 Royal Guard - one is shot dead by Edward Teague.
- 80 Pirates - seven are seen lying dead as Joshamee Gibbs is prepared to be hanged, the skeleton of another pirate serves as the Queen Anne's Revenge's figurehead, forty-seven skulls likely belonging to pirates are seen inside the ship's cabin, the Cook is burned alive by Blackbeard's Greek fire, one is grabbed right off of a longboat by a Mermaid, Derrick is drowned by a mermai…
I recently counted up all the deaths in the Curse of the Black Pearl and posted them here as a blog post. So, I'm gonna do that for the second film, Dead man's chest, as well;
- 29 Turkish Prisoners - eighteen are eaten alive by Ravens, one is dragged into the Turkish Prison and likely killed, five coffins are thrown into the sea containing deceased prisoners, five more coffins are visible in the sea.
- 1 Raven - one is accidentally shot by Jack Sparrow as he breaks out of his coffin.
- 1 Hermit Crab - one is eaten by Bootstrap Bill.
- 10 Sailors - three dragged underwater by the Kraken along with their [[Turkish fishing boat|fishing boat], the skulls of three are seen on the Isla de Pelegostos on Jack's throne, another skull is seen by a cliffside, the t…
So, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales surprisingly received rather good reviews, and, as a Pirates of the Caribbean fan, I enjoyed it on my first viewing. However, once all of the hype and excitement had died down, and I got the film on DvD, I rewatched it, and tried to view it through the eyes of someone who had never heard of Pirates of the Caribbean, and who wasn't a fan. And it was terrible. Cheesy dialogue, cliche characters, cliche story, cliche themes.
Everything was just so predictable, even Carina Smyth being Hector Barbossa's daughter was a predictable twist. The scene with Pierre Kelly and his pirates was pure filler. There was too much humor, and none of it was funny. It just felt like a remake of the great origin…
So, I was bored, and I decided to watch the Curse of the Black Pearl and count all of the deaths. I thought I would post it here as my daily blog post, so here it is:
- 13 Pirates - three are visible as skeletons hanged outside Port Royal including Calico Jack Rackham, the skeleton of a pirate is seen as Jack Sparrow and William Turner enter the Isla de Muerta. Matelot is stabbed and pitched into the sea by Maximo, Jacoby dies when the curse is lifted due to being blown up by Will Turner while still cursed, Weatherby dies when the curse is lifted due to being blown up by Will Turner while still cursed, Monk dies when the curse is lifted due to being blown up by Will Turner while still cursed, Mallot and Grapple both drown when the curse is lift…
Anamaria was a crew member serving aboard the Black Pearl. She had dealings with Captain Jack before she joined the crew, and used to be a smuggler with her sisters and her mother. Anamaria left the crew in between The Curse of the Black Pearl and Dead Man's chest for unexplained reasons, and it is never said why.
I personally think that she might have gotten tired of how Jack Sparrow was always getting into situations, and putting himself before others, and how the other crew mates stuck up for him when she complained, so she left to start her own life. She also appeared in some expanded universe material which I haven't read, but according to this wiki she didn't leave in any of them. Realistically, I think the reason she didn't appear in…
I'm a massive Pirates of the Caribbean fan, and I love all of the films (well, I love four of the films). However, there's no denying that the second film and the ones that came after it aren't flawless. Well, neither is the first film, but the others especially aren't. In this post, I will go over why the sequels aren't as well loved as the original film, and where they went wrong.
Jack Sparrow- Jack was memorable in the first film as being a good supporting character, but it was obvious that the film was really Elizabeth Swann and William Turner's story. However, in the other four films, Jack is treated as the main character, especially in the fourth film as Will and Elizabeth do not appear. In the fifth instalment of the series, though t…
I am very excited about the return of Davy Jones in PotC 6. Incase you happen to not know, the post-credits scene in DMTNT, features the return of who we believe to be Jones. After all, there are barnacles where this mysterious figure was standing and there was a shot of a crab hand such as the one Jones has.
Cotton, Pintel, Ragetti and the many unnamed Chinese pirates in the Motley crew under Captain Hector Barbossa at the end of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End are never seen after the films' end. Marty, Murtogg and Mullroy all left the crew, we know that. Murtogg and Mullroy joined the Crew of the Queen Anne's Revenge, and Marty joined the Crew of the Dying Gull. But, we have no idea what happened to the others. Did they die in Blackbeard's capture of the Black Pearl? Did they escape? Or did they simply resign beforehand? We now know that they weren't inside the bottle with the Black Pearl, as they weren't seen when it was released.
But then, Cotton's Parrot was seen inside the bottle in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, but di…
My ten favorite Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks, from worst to best. I haven't included any from the latest film, because I thought the soundtrack sounded off. This is my first ever blog post, so it won't be great.
10; 'Jack Sparrow' from Dead Man's Chest. Basically all of the main themes from the second film. I love it, but it's not my favourite.
9; 'Hoist the Colors' I like this one a lot. I got chills when I first heard it. I liked it in COTBP and DMTNT. I love the loud part (of couse), as well as the build-up.
8; 'Singapore Battle' I absolutely love this theme, especially the part that plays when the battle spreads to outside Sao Feng's fortress, as well as the EITC theme.
7; I'm not sure what the track is called, but it's from the sc…
Found this to be interesting :
"In an interview with Yahoo! Movies, series producer Jerry Bruckheimer indicated that plans for Pirates 6 could still go forward if Dead Men Tell No Tales does well enough in its home release:
'Well, I hope we can continue to make it, but you know we’ve been having so much fun just promoting this one right now that we’ll just have to wait and see. Hopefully it’s very successful on DVD as the other ones have been. Then hopefully we’ll sit down and see where we go.'
Bruckheimer also addressed charges that Dead Men Tell No Tales was a box office failure, arguing that the film would have grossed $1 billion worldwide if today’s currency exchange rates were the same as in 2011 when On Stranger Tides cracked the $1 bil…
Blu-Ray: October 3rd
Digital: September 19th
