Disclaimer: I haven't seen the last film yet. The first three films form the trilogy of Jack, Elizabeth, and Will, which culminates in Will being turned into the captain of the Flying Dutchman. Also, at the end of the third film, Barbossa steals the Pearl (again), while Jack is left with a map to the Fountain of Youth. Neither Will nor Elizabeth are ...

First time here; I discovered this thread via Google whilst trying to find the answer of the film's renaming myself. Having not found anything conclusive, I did some more digging and believe I've identified the answer. If you look the film up on IMDb and go into the page listing international release dates and titles, one needs only a basic understanding of ...

Besides the two possible reasons for name changes that Nathan mentions in his answer (avoiding obscure references and sensitivity to recent events), there is a third possibility: legal disputes over the trademark. Someone else in the UK may have claimed the phrase "Dead Men Tell No Tales" as their intellectual property, leading Disney to fall back to the ...

We don't know. There is no official explanation as to why both different events have happened. We can only theorize. As the other answer says, Jack may have won the compass twice, but I disagree (as that would seem to imply he betrayed the compass before, which would have released Salazar before). From the wiki: Jack Sparrow's compass was an unusual ...

The script to At World's End indicates that the curse allows for one day ashore every 10 years: Regarding Jones: And every ten years... ...him could come ashore... ...to be with she who love him... truly. Later in regard to Will: This ship has a purpose again. And where we are bound... ...she cannot come. One day ashore. ...

I concur with Mac, that Will was able to fulfill his duty (at least to a great degree), but disagree with the conclusion that the barnacles directly correlate with the dereliction of said duty. Now I will bring up two points to clarify my explanation. The Curse of the Flying Dutchman In short, the Curse of the captain is this: You are to ferry the dead ...

According to Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest Jack Sparrow got compass from Tia Dalma. Tia Dalma: The Compass you bartered from me. It cannot lead you to dis? According to Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Jack Sparrow got compass from the captain of a ship. Actually story and screen play has been written by different writers ...

I don't believe the conversation explicitly states that Tia Dalma gave the compass to Jack, but rather suggesting it was because of her, that he now has it. TIA DALMA: The Compass you bartered from me. It cannot lead you to dis? The wiki states: Jack Sparrow's compass was an unusual navigational instrument most notably used by Captain Jack Sparrow, ...

The order of events I think you're confusing what Barbossa knew when he first encountered the book, and what he knew when he's on the island with Carina. So I'll list it chronologically: Barbossa encounters the book. He sees that there is a precious stone in the book, and likely keeps the book for that reason. Barbossa leaves his daughter at the doorstep ...

I imagine that Will Turner was able to (for the most part) fulfill his duty as captain of the Dutchman ferrying souls but after 10+ years when we see him at the beginning of Dead Men I'm sure that the job has grown wearisome and he may have let some souls slip, hence the few barnacles. This is evidenced merely in his presence at the bottom of the ocean when ...

The reason Will's position as Captain of the Flying Dutchman can be considered a curse because of the contextual material. Will wants nothing more than to be home, with his family. However, he is bound and incapable of leaving his post. He physically cannot be freed nor step on land unless he is either A) forced into premature 'retirement' (his heart is ...

It is assumed to be back inside him As you note: Davy Jones put a curse on his heart, making sure that anyone who destroys the heart must remove their own heart, and preferably keep in in a box. So once the curse was lifted, there is no reason for Will to keep his heart in a box. BlueMoon93 summarizes this for us on [movies.se] Once the trident was ...

Because it's the map no man can read. But she's a womam rather than a man, so she presumes she can read it.

The Timekeeper was originally made in Holland. The watchmaker was also an alchemist. Instead of making it an ordinary watch, he gave it the ability to alter time. Although there is currently little evidence that Jack traveled to the future or that the Timekeeper's warping of time includes future time periods or that someone could interact with someone ...

Jack knew about spaghetti the same way he knew about every other anachronistic phrase he used. The TvTropes page for 'Anachronism Stew' for the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is so long that they divided it into separate pages for each movie. Suffice to say history is very different in the Pirates universe.

Probably. It's never explicitly confirmed to still work, but there's also little to no reason to think that it wouldn't. The compass has been used for many different plotlines, and it has never been consumed by any plot. It is likely a standalone enchanted object, so it stands to reason that it doesn't stop working because the plotline it's connected to (...
