We first introduced you to the life-size Captain Jack Sparrow LEGO sculpture at its reveal with actor Ian McShane (Blackbeard) at a Disney Consumer Products event earlier this year. Since then, we had a brief encounter with Jack once more at the New York International Toy Fair, but we were still nonetheless surprised encountering Jack at one of his first public installations — the world famous FAO Schwarz on Fifth Avenue.

Walt Disney Studios Netherlands provides us with a couple of gems today for Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides, in theaters nationwide on May 20, 2011.
First up is a podcast video hosted by Geoffrey Rush, focusing briefly on the history of the Disneyland attraction that inspired the franchise. In addition to the ride background, including a televised introduction to the attraction by Walt Disney (Pirates of the Caribbean was the last attraction that Walt personally worked on), the podcast also shows quite a bit of footage from the film plus behind-the-scenes footage which includes Johnny Depp (in full Captain Jack Sparrow makeup) making a grand entrance via helicopter. Because it comes from overseas, the podcast is subtitled, but is entirely in English (we will replace it with a non-subtitled version as it becomes available).
