In Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Jack Sparrow — Captain Jack Sparrow — flees to land and ends up with the Pelegostos, who make him his chief, which was nice.

When Will Turner comes along, the size of the crew of the Black Pearl has shrunken somewhat. The Pelegostos seem to be cannibals. Jack is their chief.

We see Captain Chief Jack Sparrow nibble on a toe.

Jack nibbles on a toe

Did Jack eat more than just a toe?

Has he resorted to cannibalism?

This has been asked over on Movies & TV, but without a definite answer.

  • I don't think he was nibbling on the toe. Just biting the toe nail, because he was nervous. Wasn't it just Jack that they wanted to eat? And they only wanted to do so because he was their chief.
