Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales will finally start their voyage back to the large screen soon. Embracing the first film’s simple and clever pirate adventure, the new installment features a mix of nostalgia and old foes with a possible reunion.
From the movie’s first teaser, viewers can deduce that the plot might be familiar, as per news by moviepilot.com. A ghost pirate armed with undead troops and a grudge for Jack Sparrow. It sounds quite just like The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003).
And it might actually be good for Dead Men Tell No Tales.
Fans of Pirates of the Caribbean 5 felt the movie’s sequels lost its charm when it strayed to what fans liked about the film and attempted to have a deeper storyline. Going back to where they started – the simplicity and idiosyncrasy of a pirate film without complicated and unnecessary plot lines.
Another news fans of the franchise might be excited to know is a possible family reunion.
In the first teaser, a young man is seen threatened by Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem). This young man looks familiar. Some speculations surmised that this man, named Henry played by Brenton Thwaites, is the son of Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley).
Previous news revealed Thwaites confessing that his role is about a young man who aims to “reconnect with his father, Davy Jones.”
But Davy Jones have died in At World’s End (2007) therefore there is a chance he might be referring to the current Davy Jones: Will Turner, according to moviepilot.com. However, if it is true, the reunion would not be complete.
Knightley has previously expressed that she “won’t be going back” to the franchise as her time has definitely passed although it was an amazing experience.
Meanwhile, the cast that are confirmed to reprise their roles are Bloom, Geoffrey Rush (Captain Hector Barbossa), Kevin McNally (Joshamee Gibbs), Keith Richards (Captain Teague) and of course Johnny Depp (Jack Sparrow).
Directors Joachim Rønning & Espen Sandberg will helm from a script by Jeff Nathanson.
Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales is set to sail on May 26, 2017.
