Les Pirates Partout!
Or “Pirates Everywhere” in French.
I know! So Fun!
As with our colleagues at Shanghai Disney Resort, the cast of the soon-to-be-blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” also brought their signature brand pillage and plunder to Disneyland Paris – to the surprise and delight of park guests. In Europe, the film is titled “Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge” focusing on the new character Captain Salazar played by Javier Bardem.
On May 14, 2017 – just three days after Shanghai Disney Resort hosted the world premiere of the film at the Walt Disney Grand Theatre inside Shanghai Disney Resort’s Disneytown; the cast made their way through the streets of Disneyland Paris – disembarking from a giant galleon in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle – to celebrate the film’s launch in Europe.
Johnny Depp, Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario, Orlando Bloom, Geoffey Rush, Javier Bardem, directors Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg and producer Jerry Bruckheimer wowed the crowds of guest – with SUPERB timing as Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland Park is undergoing a re-Imaging as part of the Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary Celebration.
On arrival the cast and crew were met with thunderous applause from fans and celebrities alike. After a spectacular show featuring 25 acrobats and dancers dressed as ghost pirates and escorting a sinking ship, the film’s cast and crew came onstage to greet the audience and answer questions. They also took the time to sign autographs and pose for selfies with excited fans, before making a surprise appearance at the film’s European premiere at Gaumont Disney Village, which was simulcast across a dozen IMAX theaters across the continent.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary at Disneyland Paris, the legendary attraction will reopen its doors on July 24th with 2 scenes including Jack Sparrow appearing in several of its unforgettable sequences for the first time in Europe.
Disney Parks are where our stories come to life and the soon-to-be-blockbuster movie also is perfectly-timed to help us celebrate the 50th anniversary of the classic attraction’s opening at the Disneyland Resort in California.
“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” sails into theaters in the United States on May 26 and May 24 – 26 in Europe. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more news from Disney Parks around the world and more Disney Parks news tied to “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales!”
