Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides Fun Facts

April 18, 2011
Disney shares some fun facts about the making of the fourth installment of this epic saga!
  • New characters add to the fun of the all-new story: Blackbeard (Ian McShane), the ultimate pirate villain; Angelica (Penélope Cruz), a con-artist from Jack Sparrow’s past; Syrena (Astrid Bergès-Frisbey), the mystical mermaid; and Philip (Sam Claflin), the young mysterious missionary.
  • For the fourth time, Geoffrey Rush reprises his role as Captain Barbossa. Until the last fim in the series, “At World’s End,” Barbossa’s first name, Hector, was never uttered by any of the characters.
  • While filming in the thick coconut grove at the famed and now shuttered Coco Palms Hotel in Wailua—where Elvis once sang “Blue Hawaii” for the movie of that title—773 coconut palms were harvested to prevent the heavy fruits from falling on the hapless heads of cast and crew. The harvested coconuts were taken away by local residents to take full advantage of the meat and milk of the tropical fruits.
Opening across the Philippines on May 2011, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International through Columbia Pictures.
