Captain Jack Sparrow’s return is a reason for excitement as we face the release of Pirates of the Caribbean 5 “Dead Men Tell No Tales”, or “Salazar’s Revenge” if you’re in the UK and Netherlands. This franchise has been running for over a decade and the new release will mark six years since the release of the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film.
Why such the long wait?
You can blame The Lone Ranger. The 2013 Pirates of the Caribbean flop made Disney hesitant to announce the release of a 5th film in the franchise. Add to that a few scripting and budget issues, and the reason for this film’s extended wait can be understood. The final script for the new film is written by Jeff Nathanson, with the franchise’s long-time writers not returning to the big screen this time around.
What can we expect this time?
Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom are making another cameo in this film. According to the film synopsis released by Disney, Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis escape from Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea. Captain Jack must seek out the legendary Trident of Poseidon as his only hope of survival.
Will Turner’s Son
The last time we saw him, Turner had married Elizabeth and became captain of the Flying Dutchman, sentenced to roam the Netherworld for a decade. During this time, he and Elizabeth have a son.
Bloom has hinted that this time the film could revolve around his relationship with his son, withBrenton Thwaites playing the character who may very well end up being the son searching for his father, Will Turner.
Despite the franchise’s failed attempt to make a successful film the last time around, this upcoming film looks promising and people are anxious for its’ arrival. If you’re a huge Jack Sparrow fan and really can’t wait another few months for this film to come out, a great way to bide your time is by playing pirate themed slot machine games at some of the best online casinos.
The sequel is set to come out this May 2017, which is right around the corner.
