The fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” film was officially announced to be called “On Stranger Tides” at the second day of the D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif. on Sept. 11, 2009. It was the final announcement in an incredible presentation made by the Walt Disney Studios to Disney fans.
After two hours of non-stop film clips, announcements, and celebrity appearances (more about that after this post) the final message from Studios president Dick Cook was to bring out Johnny Depp dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow who emerged from a foggy pirate ship on stage and muttered, in character, “Has anybody seen the talking frog?”, refererencing yesterday’s preview of Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog.”
Dick Cook offered Depp/Sparrow to go get some rum to conclude the presentation.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is due on Summer 2011.
