“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” opened in theaters on May 26, and to celebrate, a group of Disney Parks Blog readers put their pirate side on display at our latest Disney Parks Blog meet-up.
In addition to enjoying an early screening of the film, guests – dressed in their pirate best – were surprised with an appearance by the Rusty Cutlass pirate band, who played pirate tunes and led the entire theater in taking an official pirate oath.
“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is a rip-roaring adventure that 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 Salazar (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 (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully 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 ever faced.
