From Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer comes all the fun, epic adventure and humor that ignited the original. Johnny Depp returns as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. A tale of truth, betrayal, youth, demise — and mermaids!

The Blu-ray Combo Packs releasing next Tuesday include LEGO Animated Shorts: Captain Jack's Brick Tales as part of the bonus material! Check out this exclusive clip from the shorts. It's a LEGO re-imagining of the opening of the movie!

When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past, he’s not sure if it’s love or if she’s a ruthless con artist using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. Forced aboard the ship of the most feared pirate ever, Jack doesn’t know who to fear more —Blackbeard or the woman from his past. Directed by Rob Marshall, it’s filled with eye-popping battle scenes, mystery and all-out wit.
