Captain Jack in the 1970s?!?!?!?

Disney fan and Design by Me Disney t-shirt finalist Jasmine Contois unearthed this poster from the now-defunct Discovery Island at Walt Disney World, and it features someone very, very familiar.

It’s not often that I see something Disney-related that surprises me, but this most certainly did. More at this link

Fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie news!!!!!

 

 

Friends, I’ve gotten a scoop on the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie! I’m so excited to be able to share this new info with you. I, for one, am super excited to see this on the big screen.

Here’s the synopsis:

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer,¬†written by Terry Rossio and again directed by Rob Marshall, Pirates of the Caribbean: Skull and Bones is the fifth installment of the hit film franchise based on the Disney Parks’ attraction of the same name.

Jason Statham joins the cast as Captain Paidear.

In addition to returning stars Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Penelope Cruz and Kevin McNally, Skull and Bones will introduce Jason Statham as pirate Odhran Paidear, captain of the Crimson Lass. Paidear, who has sailed under both Sparrow and Barbossa, has been fighting on the side of the Irish in its conflict with England and is now interrupting East Indian Trading Company traffic from England to the Northeast U.S., sailing with a crew of escaped criminals, who took over their captors on the voyage to Australia.

Djimon Hounsou joins the cast as the African pirate Dechontee Tamba.

Dijmon Hounsou joins the film as African pirate Dechontee Tamba, Captain of the Kamaria Obi. Crewed with African men rescued from slave ships on the high seas, Tamba continues to chase slave ships, and send them to the depths.

The film will revolve around all 4 captains sailing to a river in the mid-Atlantic portion of America called the Little Dagger to search for a buried treasure called the “Devil’s Breath,” a piece of Viking history said to allow the owner control of the winds. Each captain has their reasons for wanting the treasure, but it will bring them all together in ways they could never dream of. And leave them changed forever.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Skull and Bones will take the audience from Africa to Ireland to New Orleans to the U.S. Eastern seaboard and introduce them to native Americans, Irish banshees and a very strange voodoo witch-doctor.

Legends of Irish banshees go back hundreds of years. In legend, a banshee is a fairy woman who begins to wail if someone is about to die. Most consider them an omen of death.

Expect to see Captain Jack search for an antidote to the voodoo doll Angelica still holds, Barbosa to follow Jack for the Black Pearl and all to join together to fight the East India Trading Company for control of the seven seas.

Jerry Bruckheimer has produced all 4 Pirates films, and other Disney flicks such as The Sorcerer's Apprentice and the Prince of Persia.

In a recent interview in Europe, Bruckheimer tells fans to “…sit down and hold on, this will be the most epic and exciting ‘Pirates’ film of them all. We’re excited to have Jason and Djimon join the cast. And we’re all looking forward to getting back out on the water to have another adventure with Jack, Barbossa, Gibbs and the rest of the cast and crew.”

Ok everyone, that’s it! Excited? I am. Expected release is Summer of 2013, with filming beginning on the West coast of Africa later this month.

Friday Daily Disney

Hello all. We lead off today with a an announcement: today is my 16th wedding anniversary to my lovely bride Jenny! We met in SoCal, so of course I immediately took her on a date to Disneyland. We waited until our daughter was 3 to go back to Disney World, but we haven’t stopped since. The photo is from our February trip with my favorite, Stitch. Happy Anniversary dear. Love you.

Keith Richards returns to the POTC as Jack’s father, Captain Teague. This has been reported as the first look at Richards, but I’m not sure. He popped up in the first teaser trailer. Image here. Thanks to Stitchkingdom.com for the image. More photos here.

Above is what we’re told is the new Blu-Ray box for Star Wars: The Complete Saga. The set, released on September 16 of this year, will feature all 6 films plus over 40 hours of extras. More here. I’ll just say one thing: this box art is not how you say ‘good.’

These adorable Mickey and Minnie ‘cake pops’ were found on Etsy today. Cute! More here.

A great blog post from Mouse Planet about pet peeves in the Disney Parks. While I tend to turn a blind eye to a lot of these, kids are kids and when you load them up on sugar and throw ‘em into an amusement park, they’re bound to be a little hyper, I did agree with a few of them. The enormo-backpacks are a pain, especially in line for Big Thunder Mountain. But mine would be the ‘It Used to be Better’ people. I know ‘Alien Encounter’ was awesome, and I miss the Sky Buckets too, but I love Stitch and my daughter likes ‘Great Escape.’ Fantasyland NEEDS to be expanded, and frankly, ‘Test Track’ is fraking awesome. You changed over the past 20 years, why shouldn’t Disney?

Happy Birthday to the Norway Pavilion at Epcot, opening this day in 1988. I love this Pavilion! A great ride, fantastic food, beer and what I’m told from female friends at work, the cutest guys in Epcot.

And your wicked-awesome Disney tattoo of the day

My Daily Disney

Some fun and interesting tidbits from around the internets:

A fantastic interview with a current Magic Kingdom custodian, Kevin. Jeff Heimbuch does a great job.

A new featurette on Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides here. And some saucy POTC mermaid shoots here.

And a new X-Men: First Class trailer with new footage here. Great footage so far, am interested in hearing Banshee’s scream however. Havoc, always my fav X-Man, looks cool.

And some more Disney tattoos. More info here:

New POTC Trailer

For those of you who didn't already know, POTC 4 is based in this novel by Tim Powers.

Two spots ran on the Super Bowl last night, a 30-second and 60-second.

 

Barbosa working for England. Note the crutch on his left. I'm interested to find out how he lost his leg.

A beautiful shot. Note the relief skeletons climbing up the back of the captain's quarters. I have to say however, if the ship is going this fast, shouldn't the sails be full?

Pirate zombies. For fun....

My favorite pirate, Joshamee Gibbs. Played by Kevin McNally. McNally has worked in British TV and on the stage for years. His most notible role to Americans came in 1977 as a crewman on the HMS Ranger in 'The Spy Who Loved Me'. He has enjoyed a well-deserved new-found fame after starring in all four POTC films

Lovely mermaid skin.
