Disney Pic of the Week: Pirates of the Caribbean, the Movie

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

Raise your hands if you thought Disney would be successful in making movies based on themepark rides or attractions? I wonder how many of you would have raised your hands before the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Curse of the Black Pearl. Now with four movies in the series with a fifth in the works, it is safe to say this movie ride far surpassed anyone’s expectations.

It helps to have a great cast and, none more important, than Johnny Depp as the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow. A character who now has his own show at the Magic Kingdom and audio-animatronics of himself added to the ride in the first ever change to the Pirates of the Caribbean storyline. I even had the good fortune of meeting Captain Jack during a media event back in 2011. He was just as charming in person as in the movies.

TIP: Look who got in a photo! I handed my camera over to a PhotoPass Photographer. Remember, they will use your camera upon request. Make sure it is all set to go like mine was.

Lisa will be here on Thursday to share her Disney Pic of the Week on Pirates of the Caribbean (Movie).
