Over the years Disney has made their Pirates of the Caribbean villains more and more ridiculous. The films began with Geoffrey Rush’s Captain Barbossa (no doubt the best bad guy of the series), then became super CGI heavy with Billy Nighy’s tentacled Davy Jones, and seemingly went back to basics with Ian McShane’s Blackbeard, but he used voodoo, so not the most traditional of pirates. (I still have no memory of who the villain was in At World’s End, but that movie was a ridiculous mess overall.) And now for the fifth installment in the Pirates franchise nobody asked for, Disney is going back to a CG villain.

It seems like forever ago that the original Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was an unexpected Hollywood hit, a questionable adaptation of a popular carnival ride that somehow managed to be one of the best action movies of the year. In the original film, Johnny Depp surprised us all with his mimicry and knack for physical comedy, even bringing home an Academy Award nomination for his performance as Captain Jack Sparrow. Fast forward a few years, however, and the franchise seems to have devolved into what we originally feared: a hollow cash grab from Disney that has quite clearly overstayed its welcome.

There’s a famous part of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disneyland where an ominous voice says “Dead men tell no tales!” So I guess this is an adaptation of that line? These Pirates of the Caribbean movies are getting really granular.

Previously, it was thought that perhaps Orlando Bloom would sit out the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise — with Brenton Thwaites on board for the upcoming sequel, it seemed that the (younger) leading man torch was being passed to someone new. Bloom’s return has been rumored for months, but Disney made it official during their live-action presentation at D23.

Before it was a massive movie franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean was just another ride at Disneyland. But, it wasn't just any ride. Built in 1967, Pirates of the Caribbean was actually the last ride that was personally overseen by Walt Disney before his death in 1966. This is just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which sets sail with Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean!

Between Johnny Depp suffering an injury and forcing production on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales to shut down for a month and then later supposedly skipping his flight back to the set after his injury healed, all of the recent chatter surrounding the latest Captain Jack Sparrow adventure has been weird and negative. In a reveal that surely has absolutely nothing to do with all of the recent rumor-mongering, producer Jerry Bruckheimer has revealed our first look at Depp in the film.

After years of false starts and delays, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales finally began filming in Australia yesterday. And that’s not a moment too soon for the franchise’s star, Johnny Depp, who hasn’t headlined a hit since 2011’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. So, this brings up two important questions. First, will a fifth Captain Jack Sparrow adventure resuscitate Depp in a post-Mortdecai world? Secondly, can new directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning inject new life into a series that ran out of steam two movies ago?
