Disney has released the first trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides this week, and it’s more of the same from Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and crew. From the familiar score to the wobbly mess that is the series’ lead character to the subtle hints that two young stars may be central to the actual story (keep an eye on the young lad and the mermaid), we’ve seen this act before. It doesn’t make it appear to be any less fun, however.

Watch the trailer below, or check it out in HD over at Yahoo Movies.

Below you will find the official synopsis. The story goes something like this: Jack Sparrow is back and he’s off to look for the fountain of youth. He will be chased by an old foe, Capt. Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) and a fierce new baddy, Blackbeard (played by Ian McShane). He also has a fiery new love interest played by Penelope Cruz.


Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past and he’s not sure if it’s love or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard, Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.

Actually, come to think about it, I’m rather interested in this fourth entry. No Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom? That cuts out all of the boring parts. I say bring it on!

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is due in theaters on May 20, 2011.
