Shiver me timbers, the 4th “Pirates of the Caribbean movie, On Stranger Tides”, will be out in theatres tomorrow, May 20th. The new movie will feature everyone’s favorite pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow, played, of course, by Johnny Depp. But the new movie will feature several new characters instead of the same characters from the first 3 movies. Instead of blacksmith Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, we will meet the famous pirate Blackbeard, played by Ian McShane and Angelica (Blackbeard’s daughter), and played by Penelope Cruz. The adventure will feature enchanting mermaids, and a journey to the Fountain of Youth.
Inspired by the new movie, Disney is coming out with a new ‘mermaid makeover’ for little girls. The $29.95 package includes an “ocean-inspired” makeover; complete with ‘mermaid’s tears’ nail lacquer, a rhinestone face gem, hair accessory, and Pirates League sheath. The makeover will be available at the Magic Kingdom’s Pirate League location in Adventureland. For reservations and more information, call 407-939-2739.
Personally, I obviously have not seen the movie yet, but I am a big fan of the ‘Pirates’ series. However, seeing photos of the mermaids, I think they may be too sexually alluring – I’m not sure I’d want my ‘little girl’ to emulate them. Feel free to let me know your thoughts below.
