Although due to the amount of new footage, it’s almost more of a trailer than a featurette per se, this look at Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides features producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Rob Marshall as they discuss some of the characters, new and returning, in the sequel.

In the film, slated to be released in theaters nationwide on May 20, 2011, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) finds himself on an unexpected journey to the fabled Fountain of Youth when a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz) forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane).

‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Trilogy to be Re-Released on Blu-Ray with All New Material?

Disney's 'Pirates of the Caribbean' Trilogy on Blu-rayAmazon.com has begun accepting pre-orders for what it’s referring to as a seven-disc re-release set of the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy on Disney Blu-ray. Although the trilogy had been released on Blu-ray in the past, it was just six discs and featured no added material over the individual releases. Perhaps most telling of all, however, is the price. Currently selling at $50, the existing trilogy collection’s price will be trumped by the newly announced edition which is listed at $65.49. There is no information listed at this time, however, advertising what one might find on the seventh disc.
