LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean was announced on May 31, 2010, by Traveller's Tales Jon Burton, and on November 18, 2010, by Traveller's Tales Mark Stone. The game follows the previous LEGO video games: Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Batman and Harry Potter Years 1-4.

It was released on May 10, 2011, to coincide with the release of the fourth installment of the film series. It was developed by TT Games and distributed by Traveller's Tales and Disney Interactive for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable and Microsoft Windows.

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean is based on the Pirates of the Caribbean films: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Dead Man's Chest, At World's End, as well as On Stranger Tides, which was released May 20, 2011. It features over 70 characters from the franchise, and its flagship drop-in, drop-out co-op gameplay.

The 3DS version uses the StreetPass feature to activate sword fights.

  • Norrington hits Davy Jones in the face with a fish instead of stabbing him. Norrington's head is then put on the fish by Davy Jones rather than being killed by Bootstrap, although he is stabbed by Bootstrap before Jones does this.
  • Captain Teague strangely does not appear at all in the game, Although his Textures, files and Animations are left over in the Game Files.
  • Instead of a vote, the Pirate King selected through a game of Spin the Bottle.
  • Even after the bottle landed on Jack, he spun it again so it could land on Elizabeth.

  • Will still looks the same after becoming captain of the Dutchman.

On Stranger Tides[]

  • The scene begins at Cadiz, and the part where the fishermen discover the Ancient Sailor is omitted.
  • King Ferdinand accidentally kills the Ancient Sailor while taking his logbook.
  • An unknown character, later revealed to be Angelica, steals the book from King Ferdinand and The Spaniard with a fishing rod, leaving only a map of the unnamed island before being chased by the Spanish. King Ferdinand gives The Spaniard the map.
  • Angelica (disguised as Jack Sparrow) wears a face hider, with a nose, mustache and glasses.
  • The court scene is omitted, with Jack Sparrow and Joshamee Gibbs already in a paddy wagon.
  • Gibbs accompanies Jack to St. James's Palace. This was done to make the level more co-op friendly.
  • When Gibbs and Jack escape from the palace, Jack takes a piece of chicken instead of a creme puff.
  • Scrum helps Jack take out Angelica in the Captain's Daughter. This was done to make the level more co-op friendly.
  • Angelica has henchmen to attack Jack.
  • Angelica knocks out Jack with a saucepan in the Captain's Daughter storage room instead of the Quartermaster shooting him with a voodoo dart by the River Thames. Jack is only shot by the Quartermaster with a dart in the portable version.
  • Gibbs meets Barbossa in the streets of London rather than the Execution Dock/Tower of London. Unlike the film, Barbossa was able to grab the map, and Gibbs also eats the map instead of burning it.
  • The first scene aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge happens at night instead of day. Jack wakes up with Scrum on the main deck, rather than Scrum rolling Jack out of a hammock.
  • Philip is gagged while tied to the ship's mast.
  • In a flashback montage, Angelica grows up with Blackbeard, who is depicted wearing a tricorne similar to Davy Jones' hat. Blackbeard also wields his sword and yells at full-sized ships to turn them into ships in bottles. The Quartermaster presents the prophecy of Blackbeard's death by a "one-legged man" through a giant ball. It is Angelica who suggests using the Fountain of Youth. The Profane Ritual usage of a mermaid's tear and the Chalices of Cartagena being shown, suggesting information Angelica already knew prior to stealing the book from the Spanish.
    • However, some backstories are different as detailed in the film and related material. Angelica grows up in a Spanish convent and returns to Blackbeard at some point later in time. Also, Angelica learned about the ritual by trading the ring (given to her by Jack) to Tia Dalma prior to Dead Man's Chest, so it would be there for Jack to steal, suggesting that Angelica was plotting her assault on the Fountain for some time. It is unknown exactly how Blackbeard magicked full-sized vessels into ships in bottles, including the later-revealed Black Pearl, or even if the Sword of Triton was involved in his methods.
  • Jack wears his hat and coat briefly aboard the Queen Anne's Revenge, though they were presumed lost in the film.
  • In the mutiny on the Queen Anne's Revenge, Jack only recruits Garheng, Salaman and the Cook.
  • Yeoman and Master-at-Arms are absent and replaced by to grey skinned Zombies.
  • The Cook is turned into a zombie straight away by Blackbeard's sword. In the film, the Cook was sent out into a longboat and killed by Greek fire. According to the film's screenplay and other promotional material, the Cook was killed by Greek fire and turned into a zombie. It was confirmed that the rituals required and practiced to create zombies are separate from the sword.
  • Philip sings, attracting the attention of a parrot, shark, turtle, and Syrena.
  • The scene with Jack and Angelica dancing on the deck of the Queen Anne's Revenge is omitted. Instead, they go into Blackbeard's cabin, where Angelica asks Jack to read a book about the Fountain of Youth but Jack refuses and Angelica walks towards him in a flirty manner and pushes him into the room with Blackbeard's collection of conquered ships in bottles. "Jack" the Monkey is not revealed inside the Black Pearl in a bottle.
  • Philip singing, Scrum playing the mandola, and Derrick playing the piano are the only characters who go out on a raft to hunt for mermaids at Whitecap Bay, while Syrena is the first mermaid who goes to the raft rather than Tamara.
  • At Whitecap Bay, the Mermaids can jump onto land and turn their tails into legs to serve as enemies.
  • Philip and Syrena fall in love during the battle at Whitecap Bay instead of the jungle trek into the island.
  • When the lighthouse is destroyed, Syrena lands straight in the case.
  • In the handheld version, the Cook is eaten by Tamara rather than Derrick and Purser being the ones that get eaten.
  • Derrick survives the mermaid attack.
  • The Cliff Scene is omitted.
  • Instead of slitting his throat, Blackbeard hurtles food at Philip in order to make Syrena cry.
  • Jack and Barbossa don't get captured in the Spanish camp.
  • Barbossa and Jack escape the camp in a tree slingshot.
  • The Jungle Pools scene is omitted. However, there are small areas of water throughout the first two stages (as well as a bonus stage) in the Fountain of Youth level - and Syrena is in a small pool in the preceding cutscene.
  • Blackbeard and Angelica make their way to the Fountain straight away, leaving the collapsed bridge behind them.
  • Groves and other British Marines do not show up during the battle at the Fountain of Youth and during the attack on the Spanish camp.
  • Instead of the British fighting Blackbeard's men, the Spanish soldiers do battle with them.
  • Instead of stabbing Blackbeard with a poisoned sword, Barbossa throws a poison frog at Blackbeard. It later bounces off Angelica, poisoning her as well.
  • During the boss fight with Blackbeard, Syrena joins Jack and the others to defeat Blackbeard.
  • Jack and Barbossa fight Blackbeard together rather than Barbossa fighting Blackbeard alone. This is to make it more co-op friendly.
  • In the portable version, The Spaniard chucks a bomb at Blackbeard and blows him up. Why this happened is unknown.
  • When Blackbeard is defeated, Angelica slaps Jack in the face with Blackbeard's beard.
  • At the end, Barbossa recovers his original pirate hat, but still wears his Navy coat.
  • Angelica finds Jack's hat washed up on the island rather than the voodoo doll.



  • It was thought that Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides would have its own video game, but it was shown on the film's official site that LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game would be the film's video game, with the fourth film's plot being in the game. It is possible that it could have been because of the cancellation of Pirates of the Caribbean: Armada of the Damned, which was supposed to be released on February 2, 2011.
  • If you unlock all the gold bricks, there is a secret level that is similar to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
  • Music from the films and the At World's End video game is used for this game.
  • Lego Pirates of the Caribbean is the only video game in the Lego series that has no stud limit.
  • With the exception of the Ride level, no actual dialogue is used, just like every previous LEGO video game. In The Ride, there is a deep and distorted voice singing "A Pirate's Life for Me" song.
  • This is the second-to-last LEGO video game to feature no dialogue, with the last being LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7, released later in the same year.
  • In every LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean set, there was a code included on a poster of the set which, when inputted into the game, would unlock an extra character simply called "Jack Sparrow". When the player selects him, he turns out to be a special Dancing Jack Sparrow who forces all the other characters around him (minus the second player) to dance with him.
    • If the player plays as Dancing Jack Sparrow, the version of "A Pirate's Life For Me" from the unlockable ride level will play.
  • This is the first game in the Lego series where the player can skip the opening intro before the title screen.
  • It is the only licensed Lego game not to be released via Steam, despite LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game and LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy are also not available for Steam but both released under LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga. The reason why it wasn't made available through Steam is possibly due to it being the only Lego game published under Disney Interactive, which does not have any games available for Steam, despite being a listed publisher.
  • Interestingly enough, Jack Sparrow is only ever referred to as "Captain Jack Sparrow" on the Xbox 360 version of the game. On every other version (including the PS3 version, which is identical in all but button prompts), he is referred to as merely "Jack Sparrow".
    • To follow this, the Nintendo DS and 3DS versions refer to his "Jack Sparrow (Waistcoat)" costume as "Jack Sparrow (Alternate)", even though there are several other alternate costumes for Jack Sparrow in those versions of the game.
  • There are several extra characters included in the Nintendo DS and 3DS versions of the game which are missing from the console version, including some which many might consider to be important enough to be included. These characters include Scarlett, Giselle, Admiral Norrington, and several Dutchman pirates.
  • Also on the DS and 3DS versions of the game, On Stranger Tides receives unique cutscenes using the models found in-game, whereas the other three films use the cutscenes from the console versions (with minor alterations).
  • In no version of the game is there any appearance of Captain Teague, despite his important role in both At World's End and On Stranger Tides. However his Textures, files and Animations are left over in the Game Files..
  • During the loading screens, the Black Pearl is shown with two masts despite having three: it's the only ship suffering this mistake.
