Fans of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise still have two years to wait before the fifth installment hits theaters, but producer Jerry Bruckheimer decided it’s never too early to start teasing.
The Pirates producer went on his Twitter account to reveal the first image from the film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

As you can see in the photo above, it looks like Captain Jack Sparrow is in trouble again. It looks like some enemy has detained him, which seems to be a common problem for the Captain.
The fourth film in the franchise (On Stranger Tides) was released back in 2011. And while the movie wasn’t exactly a hit with the critics, it certainly was with the loyal fans of the franchise. It made over $1 billion at the global box office, and that’s the reason why this fifth film is being made.
We are sure it will make a lot of money. As we mentioned above, the film won’t be released until 2017. The fourth film was released in 2011, which means there will be a six-year gap between the two movies. That’s the longest gap in the franchise.
Will the long wait get fans excited about the movie? Or will they find some other franchise to keep them warm at night? We’ll just have to wait and see.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales hits theaters July 7, 2017.
