That’s the official title of the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. According to ComingSoon.net Johnny Depp appeared in full Jack Sparrow costume at the D23 Expo and announced the new title and the summer 2011 release date.
The title isn’t as epic as At Worlds End, however it will probably be related to the story like the titles have been with the previous movies. The last time we saw Jack Sparrow it was hinted that he would be going after the Fountain of Youth, so that could feature in the next film. I get a hint from the new title that they will be going to a location we haven’t been before, and there was talk recently that they could be going down the steampunk route (steam powered boats and technology).
What do you think of the title?
Update: A quick ‘On Stranger Tides’ Google search shows that the title is also a book written in 1988 by Tim Powers. It just so happens to involve pirates and has the following synopsis:
Puppeteer John Chandagnac, bound for Jamaica to recover stolen money from his uncle, becomes Jack Shandy after pirates attack his ship and force him to join their crew. Shandy’s struggle to accept his new life grounds the story for readers, even as Blackbeard and vodun magicians whisk everyone away to dreamlike lands where the Fountain of Youth itself awaits. The chaotic sea battles sing, though at times key events happen so quickly that they get lost in the shuffle as Jack tries to comprehend where he’s going and what’s at stake.
Have Disney bought the rights to use elements from the novel?
