'Inspired by' the Disneyland ride, 'Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides' is Pirates #4--all starring Johnny Depp.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opens in theaters May 20th, 2011.
Cast: Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Kevin R. McNally, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Sam Claflin, Geoffrey Rush
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise—this time in Disney Digital 3D™. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise. When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), 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 (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn't know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past. The international cast includes franchise vets Geoffrey Rush as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa, and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack's longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, plus Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.

This part of the Pirates of the Carribean ride is really well done: cannon balls are landing in the water near you as you cross between two warring ships.There are little explosions near you. When they added the 3 life-size Captain Jack Sparrows/Johnny Depps, they added 'Barbossa' as well. You can hear Barbossa 'curse' Jack Sparrow out here, too.
Above: Previously in the PotC quadrilogy: Being dead (cursed) didn't stop Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) from having a swig.
I guess he is now 'un' dead?
'PotC' was my hands- down favourite Disneyland ride for decades. Then Pixar's Toy Story happened and some years after that Disneyland installed Buzz Lightyear Adventure and then TOY STORY MIDWAY MANIA @ (DISNEY'S) California Adenture ' and Pirates, though still very awesome and now featuring three Jack Sparrow/Johnny Depps (!) animatronic guys--I wonder if he'll get a fourth, now?-- just wasn't number one with me anymore.
I'll still go on the 'Pirates' ride at Disneyland--the most I think was on a low-crowd day and I went a dozen times. I would go twice that on the 2 Toy Story-themed Disneyland - Cali Adventure rides, though. 'Midway Mania" totally immerses the rider in the 3-D game-ride to the point where you are very nearly 'inside it.' Totally addictive, mind-blowing great fun.
I also find it hard to stop riding 'Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters' in Disneyland.
