Setting Sails on May 26
Among many other announcements today, Disney revealed a new synopsis for Pirate of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The synopsis includes plenty of brand new information about the film, including the name of Captain Jack Sparrow’s (Johnny Depp) new ship “The Dying Gull.” Interestingly enough the synopsis has no mention of franchise favorites Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) who have been heavily rumored to be returning.
Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazer (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea – notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Benton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifull small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has never faced.
