So a more detailed teaser aired during the Super Bowl earlier this evening. I found the slightly longer version of it online.

I was thinking it the other day actually, since... I've actually followed a bit about the drama here and there about the next PotC movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tails... Or, as the new name is, Salazar's revenge.

I'm a bit sad Keira Knightly is not going to join in, but I am very intrigued that our own Ferryman is a part of it, Orlando Bloom.

I'll admit, I am a bit worried how they'll deal with the fact he is Captain of the Flying Dutchman, Ferryman of the dead. I've always loved that and my headcanon is wast. But... What will the movie itself do with it? I never liked On Stranger Tides really, so yeah... Nervous. But excited, because Will Turner. :-P

But that's not the only thing, there'll be two generations of Turners in this, isn't there? Henry Turner will be a part of the story to! INTERESTING!!!!! VERY MUCH!!!

And now there's a trailer as well, and I have to say... It's looking GOOD!

I'm carefully optimistic and very curious... How about you guys?

Can never go wrong with undead pirates, right? ;-D

You all may not realize it, but I did not forget ... turningpirate turns 10 years old this month. In fact, it was just a few days ago!

I've spent a couple of weeks trying to think of something I could do to celebrate, but didn't really come up with anything. Given the age and lack of activity here in the past few years (which is natural given it's been a decade since Will Turner showed up in canon), coupled with RUSSIA and LJ being a thing, there might not even be many people who see this post.

But, I thought I might amuse anyone who wants to stop by by reposting some old macros and photos. Feel free to add your own in the comments, or photos, whatever. :-)

I hope this is an allowed type of posting, but this community was recommended to me as perhaps being able to help locate an old fic, of which I've been missing one chapter for almost a decade... If not, I apologize; I meant no offense.

It's acutally a crossover fic with Master & Commander and POTC written by Bailey called "A Rough Crossing."  I am missing chapter 6.  If anyone has a complete saved copy of this fic, I would be ever so grateful if you would share it!  I would be more than happy to share the completed story as an epub and/or mobi.

I'm also looking for a fic by Jean called "What Heaven Gives" Its description is as follows: "Jack is on the run and in disguise, he ends up on board a ship with Will." The link I found sadly was not archived by the Wayback Machine... Again if shared, I would be happy to reciprocate with and epub and/or mobi!

Thank you in advance for considering my plea!

Hola, fellow fans. We haven't had any activity in quite a long while in this community ... which, why would we? There's been nothing new for many a year.

This community will be celebrating 10 years in early 2017, and it's fitting the next POTC movie is scheduled for release the same year and will feature our favorite blacksmith-turned-undead pirate captain. If any of you have any ideas for activities we could do as a community here to take advantage of the anniversary, go ahead and comment.

Social media platforms have changed A LOT since 2007, when LJ still reigned as supreme as the pirate king that year in theaters. Now, of course, well ... let's just say there are many options for fandom to take place elsewhere. Tumblr comes to mind as one that has great potential for Will Turner and POTC fans (and some are already using it, in fact). You can find me over there under the same name I use here. I never did establish a TurningPirate presence on Tumblr because other people seem to be using the name for themselves and I didn't want to confuse any fans ... but if any of YOU have Will-centric Tumblr accounts, you can list in the comments here and perhaps others will come visit you there.

What was making me post today, though, was recent news that forces me to wonder about Disney's use of Orlando Bloom in the marketing of this movie next year. Since the first one in 2003 it's been obvious to market these films on the star power of Johnny Depp - however, the reality is that The Mouse may not be able to rely as exclusively on that as it has for the past three sequels. (Note: I certainly don't want to get in a discussion about what's going on with Depp. Suffice to acknowledge that media circumstances are much different surrounding him than they were 10 or 13 years ago, and that's why I bring this point up.)

Geoffrey Rush certainly has the star power to bear more heavy marketing to pull viewers in, but I wonder how much of a draw it would be to the old guard of fans to tout Bloom's role even if Will Turner isn't onscreen very long? (My argument, of course, is that it should work very well - he's been rather quiet for a few years, taking on mostly smaller roles and being a father to a young son, but his name IS still highly recognizable and I think there's a nostalgia factor that would reward Disney if they play up veterans like him and Rush ... and, at this point, possibly even Kevin as Gibbs.)

I mean, it's not really a secret that Will Turner's going to be back in POTC5, so what do you think? Do you think Disney may lean more heavily on his character and actor in marketing?

A new round is now open @ pirates20in20!
In this special actor round you can claim Orlando or another actor from the saga!
Are you brave enough to sign the roster?

Last week, my sister sent me a link to some site with a few video bits from POTC5, which I think just wrapped filming. It also contained the cast list, and Orlando has third billing (as well he should!).

I know nothing about his role in this next tale, and I don't know if other fans do or not. Have any of you heard anything solid about what Will's supposed to be doing? More importantly, short of that, do any of you harbor speculations about what the character might be doing in the plot? Or, what would you like to see, short of that (or in addition to)?

As I said in a previous post, I know LJ and this comm is sort of on life-support these days, but maybe we can rustle up a few responses to this post. :-D

I think this community might be dead, but this absolutely must be posted here. Orlando Bloom will be in the next POTC movie!

I don't have any other information, but I figured you folks at turningpirate had to know.

Here's the link.
