    @Gallifreyan And (at least some of) the comics are considered non-canon, AFAIK, because the later movies contradict them. – tobiasvl Jun 6 '17 at 11:49
  • The Pirates wikia says some works are non-canon (as decided by the author or licensees, according to the articles' disclaimer) and also lists some articles of ambiguous canonicity, although I don't find any definition or reasoning behind this on the wikia. – tobiasvl Jun 6 '17 at 11:52

    I'm not sure there is an authoritative source of canon in the POTC universe – amflare Jun 6 '17 at 14:15
