Ever since the Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl came out in 2003 (I know, doesn't seem that long ago) I was hooked! Fast forward to today when we are all anticipating the release of the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. I'm still just as hooked and am thrilled to have been chosen to attend the Red Carpet Premiere for the fifth and final movie!
I'll be heading to L.A. again May 17-20th to join 24 other scallywags bloggers to attend the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales press junket & walk the red carpet at the premiere on May 18. I've walked the red carpet once before at the Jungle Book premiere where I had a blast screening the movie at the El Capitan Theater and attending the after party...I know each one is very different so I can't wait to see what is in store for a pirate event! This time we will be having a pre-screening party and the screening will be held at the Dolby Theater!
To continue the pirate life experience we will also be heading to the Disney Archives to learn about the history of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” attraction then topping off the day at Disneyland so we can experience the ride firsthand!
Pirates of the Caribbean is considered by many to be one of the most spectacular attractions ever created for a theme park. Now celebrating its 50th anniversary, the adventures continue in Southern California! The attraction was originally conceived as a wax museum and a walk-through exhibit. But following the success of Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, Walt Disney and his team of Imagineers decided that Audio-Animatronics—Walt’s latest animation technology—was the most imaginative way to tell a rousing pirate story. On March 18, 1967, Pirates of the Caribbean opened at Disneyland Park. Thanks to the many highly detailed scenes, lavish special effects and memorable characters, the attraction earned rave reviews and has remained a beloved classic, even spawning its own blockbuster film series!
I have ridden the ride at both Disneyland and Disney World...It never gets old and can't wait to experience it again after learning about all the behind the scenes info.
Along with all this fun, we will get to attend the press junket where we will interview some amazingly talented actors from the movie!
- Javier Bardem (“Captain Salazar”)
- Geoffrey Rush (“Barbossa”)
- Brenton Thwaites (“Henry”)
- Kaya Scodelario (“Carina Smyth”)
- Directors Joachim Ronning & Espen Sandberg
- Producer Jerry Bruckheimer
If you have any questions for the talent please let me know! I'd be happy to add it to my list!
