Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides on Classic-Pirates.com

Pirates of the Caribbean, based on the Disneyland ride of the same name,  is one of the most successful Pirate trilogies out there. With a swashbuckling Cap'n Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) at the helm, the 3 films were fantasticly produced. And now there has been an official announcement by Johnny Depp himself that there will be  fourth film coming in Summer of 2011. There are mixed feelings about this, some saying that Disney doesn't know when to quit, others saying that the new film sounds brilliant.
