Pirates of the Caribbean is a Walt Disney Company franchise encompassing a series of films, numerous theme park attractions, and spin-off novels as well as a number of related video games and other media publications. The franchise originated with the Pirates of the Caribbean theme ride attraction, which opened at Disneyland in 1967 and was one of the last Disney theme park attraction overseen by Walt Disney. Disney based the ride on pirate legends and folklore. As of August 2006, Pirates of the Caribbean attractions can be found at four Disney theme parks. Their related films have grossed over US$ 3.7 billion worldwide as of January 2015,[1] putting the film franchise 10th in the list of all-time highest grossing franchises and film series.

Adaptations

Several additional works have been derived from the franchise:

  • In 2000, Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for Buccaneer Gold, opened at DisneyQuest at Florida's Walt Disney World Resort. The attraction allows up to five players to board a virtual pirate ship and attempt to sink other ships with water cannons.
  • Ron Gilbert often has said that the Monkey Island computer game series was the inspiration for Pirates of the Caribbean (especially upon seeing the second movie[4]), although he has said that he mainly got his inspiration from Tim Powers' book On Stranger Tides (which later inspired the fourth film in the franchise). Within both the film and the Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge adventure game is a key-carrying dog named Walt, whose name is a nod to Walt Disney and whose appearance is based on the jail scene from the rides.
  • A Pirates of the Caribbean board game Monopoly is manufactured by USAopoly.
  • A Pirates of the Caribbean version of the board game The Game of Life was developed.
  • A Pirates of the Caribbean version of the board game Battleship is produced by Hasbro under the title of Battleship Command.
  • Pirates of the Caribbean was the name of a team participating in the 2005–2006 Volvo Ocean Race. Their boat was named the "Black Pearl." [5]
  • A Pirates of the Caribbean multiplayer online game was released by Disney on October 31, 2007.[6]
  • The British Melodic Hard Rock band Ten have released an album entitled Isla De Muerta, the title of which is about the legendary island of the series.
