15 Unknown facts about Pirates of the Caribbean

  • The first film was supposed to be named simply Pirates of the Caribbean, but the producers decided to include The Curse of the Black Pearl at the conclusion in case the picture proved popular enough to warrant a sequel.

  • Steven Spielberg was interested in filming Pirates of the Caribbean in the 1990s, but Disney turned him down. The concept was offered once again 10 years before the film's premiere date on June 23, 2003. The film's producer originally loved the notion of a pirate movie that was distinct from others since it had the element of magic, as well as ghost stories, treasure hunts, and curses.

  • The producers were quite hesitant to do the film at all. One thing that really piqued their interest was the casting of Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow. Because of his likeness to Burt Lancaster, they hoped Matthew McConaughey would portray the Captain.



  • During the filming of On Stranger Tides, it became extremely chilly and damp. To assist the 500-man team, Johnny Depp contributed $60,000 of his own money to purchase waterproof coats for everyone.

  • Gore Verbinski, who directed the previous three Pirates films, was keen to employ as many actual sets as possible, which meant he and his crew travelled all over the world in search of the right locations to film, no matter how remote.

  • Playing Jack Sparrow in Curse of the Black Pearl was the finest thing that ever occurred to Johnny Depp's career, monetarily speaking. Following the film's popularity (and an Oscar nomination), Depp was able to command upfront compensation of $20 million for each of his subsequent films (this does not include the backend arrangements he signed).

  • Keira Knightley was just 17 when she starred in the first Pirates of the Caribbean film, so her mother had to be present the entire time.

  • Jim Carrey was one of the initial options for Jack Sparrow, but he was busy filming Bruce Almighty at the time. I know we all adore Depp as Sparrow, but you have to be intrigued about what that would have looked like.



  • According to legend, the figure of Davy Jones was supposed to speak with a Dutch accent, in line with the ship's moniker "The Flying Dutchman." Bill Nighy, on the other hand, wanted to play the character in a Scottish accent, so that's what we got.

  • Penelope Cruz was pregnant when she shot her role in On Stranger Tides, and it ultimately showed. To conceal this, Cruz's sister was used as a body duplicate for long shots, while Penelope shot all of her own close-ups.

  • Will Turner seemed taken aback when he saw his fiancée kiss Jack Sparrow, didn't he? That's because Orlando Bloom wasn't acting; he wasn't given a screenplay with the kiss in it, and he was kept a secret until the moment arrived to capture his response.

  • Johnny Depp (Jack Sparrow), Geoffrey Rush (Hector Barbossa), and Kevin McNally are the only actors who have appeared in all five Pirates of the Caribbean films released as of 2018. (Mr. Gibbs).

  • Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End is remains the longest film released by Disney as of 2018. It's 169 minutes long, which is about twice as lengthy as most of their animated flicks. It was also acclaimed at the time as one of the most costly films ever made.



  • Believe it or not, the part of Jack Sparrow was offered to Taxi Driver himself, Robert De Niro. Given the track record of pirate films flopping at the box office, De Niro declined the offer. When the pattern was broken by Curse of the Black Pearl, De Niro regretted his decision, and the next time he was offered a pirate part, he jumped at it. Unfortunately for him, that film was Stardust, which was not as successful as Pirates.

  • The weapon used by Jack Sparrow is not a fake; it is a genuine firearm made in London as early as 1760! Surprisingly, the film crew did not have to borrow it from a museum or take it from an old tomb—they just purchased it from a Connecticut-based reseller.
