Disney’s quest to create the longest title for a movie ever made continues with ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,’ which offered a quick teaser during tonight’s episode of ‘The Walking Dead’.
The film won’t hit theaters until late May 2017, but you can watch the teaser that was shown during tonight’s episode thanks to a quick upload from Disney.
Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg directed this new installment to the long running ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise, the screenplay was written by Jeff Nathanson. The screenplay is based on the characters created by Stuart Beattie, Ted Elliott, Jeff Nathanson, Terry Rossio and Jay Wolpert.
Fans that are excited to see the new film should be happy to know that Orlando Bloom will return to the franchise for the next film, he will be joined on-screen by franchise star Johnny Depp, and actors Kaya Scodelario, Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites, David Wenham and Sir Paul McCartney in a secretive role.
Disney has been rather secretive about the plot of the new film, but as of right now the story follows the lovable Captain Jack as he searches for the trident of Poseidon. While this trailer is only a teaser preview, you can be sure that Disney will release many more, much longer, trailers and clips as we get closer to the actual premiere date.
Disney’s long-running franchise has been a sweeping success with Johnny Depp at the helm. The franchise has grossed almost 1.28B in movie-tickets alone. That’s not including the merchandising, home box-office sales, increase in theme-park attraction, video-games and apps, that all draw inspiration from the films. If Captain Jack Sparrow was looking for treasure, he could have stopped a long time ago at this point.
If you need to set a reminder, you can mark May 26, 2017 down for the release of the next ‘Pirates’ movie.
