Pirates of the Caribbean is a Disney media franchise encompassing numerous theme park rides, a series of films, and spin-off novels, as well as several related video games and other media publications. The franchise originated with the theme park ride of the same name, which opened at Disneyland in 1967 and was one of the last Disneyland rides overseen by Walt Disney. Disney based the ride on pirate legends, folklore, and novels, such as those by Italian writer Emilio Salgari.
Pirates of the Caribbean became a media franchise in the 2000s with the release of The Curse of the Black Pearl in 2003; it was followed by four sequels. The films created by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have grossed over $4.5 billion worldwide by 2019, putting the film franchise 14th in the list of all-time highest-grossing franchises and film series. The rides can be found at five Disney theme park resorts.
Pirates of the Caribbean is an American fantasy swashbuckler film series produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and based on Walt Disney’s theme park attraction of the same name. The film series serves as a major component of the eponymous media franchise.
Directors of the series include Gore Verbinski (films 1–3), Rob Marshall (4), Joachim Rønning (5–6), and Espen Sandberg (5). The series is primarily written by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio (1–4); other writers include Stuart Beattie (1), Jay Wolpert (1), Jeff Nathanson (5), and Craig Mazin (6). The stories follow the adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley). Characters such as Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) and Joshamee Gibbs (Kevin McNally) follow Jack, Will, and Elizabeth in the course of the films. Other featured characters include James Norrington (Jack Davenport), Davy Jones (Bill Nighy), and Tia Dalma (Naomie Harris). The fourth film features Blackbeard (Ian McShane) and Angelica (Penélope Cruz), while the fifth film features Armando Salazar (Javier Bardem), Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites), and Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario). The films take place in a fictionalized version of the Golden Age of Piracy and are set primarily in the Caribbean.
The film series started in 2003 with Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, which had a positive reception from audiences and film critics. It grossed US$654 million worldwide. After the first film’s success, Walt Disney Pictures announced that a film series was in the works. The franchise’s second film, subtitled Dead Man’s Chest, was released in 2006 and broke financial records worldwide the day of its premiere. Dead Man’s Chest became the top grossing movie of 2006 with almost US$1.1 billion at the worldwide box office. The third film in the series, subtitled At World’s End, followed in 2007 earning US$960 million. Disney released a fourth film, subtitled On Stranger Tides, in 2011 in conventional 2D, Digital 3-D and IMAX 3D. On Stranger Tides succeeded in also grossing more than $1 billion, becoming the second film in the franchise and only the eighth film in history to do this, at the time of release. A fifth film, subtitled Dead Men Tell No Tales, was released in 2017.
The franchise has grossed over $4.5 billion worldwide; it is the 14th-highest-grossing film series of all time and is the first film franchise to produce two or more movies that grossed over $1 billion.
The Pirates of the Caribbean film series was successful at the box office, with each film grossing over $650 million, and all but Dead Men Tell No Tales at some point ranking among the fifty highest-grossing films of all time. It also became the first-ever series to have multiple films passing the billion dollar mark in box office revenues with Dead Man’s Chest and On Stranger Tides, followed by other film franchises.
The series is noted for its high quality of acting talent. The visual and practical effects are considered some of the best ever done on film, so much so that audiences believed certain CGI elements of the films were real and done practically. However, the plots of the four sequels have received mixed reviews, with the general consensus that they are too bloated and convoluted to follow. Pirates of the Caribbean is noted for reinvigorating the pirate film genre after decades of either no pirate films or failed pirate films. The success of the series saw Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer try to replicate the franchise’s success by releasing films such as Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, John Carter, and The Lone Ranger, the latter of which was directed by Gore Verbinski. Said three films were critical and commercial failures.
