If you watch the teaser for the new Pirates movie, you’ll notice a few things. The biggest being that there is no Captain Jack Sparrow. The second? Javier Bardem’s character looks like he is underwater. His hair seems to be floating behind his head, just like he would look like while swimming…or rotting in the tide.
Check out the trailer for yourself:
Dead Men Tell No Tales hits theaters in May of 2017. The Pirate movies always worked best when Captain Jack was used as a means to bring the story together, or a foil to Will Turner or Elizabeth Swan. We see a young looking pair of eyes that looks a little familiar, as it could be the grandson of ole BootStrap Bill Turner, and the son of Captain Will Turner. Hopefully we will see a better take than the last go round, where Captain Jack was front and center, and everyone else was lost. The new film will see the return of Orlando Bloom, as well as the debut of Sir Paul McCartney.
It remains to be seen if we will get any new additions to the Pirates rides at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. After the first few films, the ride was changed to add Captain Jack, Davy Jones and Blackbeard…as well as mermaids.
