From a deep-seated love of the original Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Disneyland (now celebrating its 50th Anniversary) came the Pirates film empire that we know today. For many younger guests, Captain Jack Sparrow was their first Disney pirate. If you long for the open seas…and ye come seekin’ adventure: ye be in the right place.
Come with us as we explore the Pirates films through props and costumes straight out of the Disney Archives.
A Tribute to Disney Pirates at D23 Expo
Disney pirates have only grown in popularity, thanks in part to the incredibly successful film franchise. D23 Expo celebrated all Disney pirates in a special exhibit, showcasing treasures from the Parks and films. Here, we will highlight the film memorabilia from “A Pirates Life for Me: Disney’s Rascals, Scoundrels, and Really Bad Eggs.”
For more details of the D23 Expo exhibit featuring the history of Disney pirate lore, and Pirates attractions from around the world, see our other article here.

Bruckheimer’s Pirates: Bigger Than Life
Jerry Bruckheimer is known for making blockbuster films. When he signed on for the first Pirates film, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003), he likely didn’t realize how big this franchise would become.
Fast forward fourteen years, and Bruckheimer has produced four more “Pirates” films:
- Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006) – Davy Jones and the Flying Dutchman
- Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (2007) – Pirates Lords of the Brethren Court
- Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011) – Angelica, Blackbeard
- Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017) – Captain Salazar, Henry and Carina
