Pirates of the Caribbean is a multi-billion dollar Walt Disney franchise encompassing a theme park ride, a series of films and spinoff novels as well as numerous video games and other publications. As of August 2006, Pirates of the Caribbean attractions can be found at four Disney theme parks and their related films have grossed more than US$2.7 billion.

Theme park origins

Pirates of the Caribbean was envisioned in the early 1950s as a walk-through wax museum at Disneylandmarker that would have featured depictions of real pirates in static scenes. Instead, Disney Imagineersmarker utilized the technological breakthroughs achieved in the company's four pavilions at the 1964–65 World's Fair to transform the attraction into a boat ride through stressful environments filled with fictional Audio-Animatronic pirates sacking a Caribbeanmarker seaport. Its theme song, "Yo Ho ", sets a light-hearted tone for characters who were violent in reality.

The last Disney theme park attraction designed with input from Walt Disney, it opened in its original form in New Orleans Square at Disneyland on March 18, 1967. Since then, it has been replicated in different forms at three subsequent Disney theme parks—Magic Kingdommarker at Walt Disney World Resortmarker (December 15, 1973), Tokyo Disneylandmarker (April 15, 1983) and Disneyland Parismarker (April 12, 1992).

Video games

Eidos Interactive's Walt Disney World Quest: Magical Racing Tour included a level in which players can race water boats at the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in Walt Disney World.

Originally entitled Sea Dogs II, Pirates of the Caribbean was released in 2003 by Bethesda Softworks to coincide with the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Although it had no relation to the characters, it features the movie's storyline about cursed Aztec gold and undead pirates, and it was the first of several games to be inspired by the attraction.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow by Bethesda Softworks, had players assuming the role of Captain Jack Sparrow (voiced by Johnny Depp). The game is set prior to the first movie, as players explore the stories that made Captain Jack Sparrow a legend.

Disney later moved to develop Pirates of the Caribbean Multiplayer Mobile for mobile phones and a massively multiplayer online role playing game entitled Pirates of the Caribbean Online, which was released in Autumn 2007.

Pirates of the Caribbean was also featured in Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts II. The level takes place during the events of the film, with movie characters such as Jack Sparrow, Elizabeth Swann, Will Turner, and Captain Barbossa making appearances. The story is modified to fit the Kingdom Hearts II storyline.

Another video game was Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl for Game Boy Advance (Nintendo) and a few others. This game is based on Captain Jack Sparrow's misadventures in the pursuit of saving Ria Anasagasti with his ship mate Will Turner.

Another video game, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, was released for the Nintendo DS, Playstation Portable, Game Boy Advance and others.

Another video game entitled Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End was released on May 22, 2007 and was based on the film of the same name which was released on May 25, 2007. It was the first game in the series to be released for a seventh generation console.
