Episode 20: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
Listen now
Drink up me 'earties, yo ho! On this second episode during Movie Attractions May, we hope aboard the MASSIVELY successful first installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, The Curse of the Black Pearl. Before we can get into the epic-scale that was Gore Verbinski's pirate adventure, we look into the history of the Disneyland attraction which inspired the film, its evolution from Walt's original vision of the attraction to the still wildly successful ride we know today. We then journey through the process of bringing this attraction to the big screen, and how it exceeded even the most generous of expectations.

HUGE shout out to the multi-talented composer Tyler Griffin for the FANTASMIC opening jingle. Find out more about his musical genius at TylerAGriffin.com
