While “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Revenge of Salazar” was broadcast last night on M6, back to all the hidden details of the Disney film.
The return of a great villain, a pirate joke, Popeye’s song and the origin of Jack Sparrow’s name… While Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge (fifth opus of the famous Disney saga) was broadcast last night on M6, back on all the hidden details, easter eggs, winks and references that should not be missed in the film.
From the first seconds of Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge, the fifth opus of the famous saga, we can see that the famous castle of Disney studios has adorned itself with a pirate pavilion for the occasion. On the river which meanders just behind, one can also notice the presence of a ship which looks like two drops of water to the Black Pearl of Jack Sparrow.
Dead men tell no tales
The original title of this fifth installment (replaced by La Vengeance de Salazar in the French version) was not chosen at random. Indeed, it is a replica that could be heard in the original attraction of the Disney parks, and which had already resonated several times in the first opuses of the saga.
It was thus pronounced by the parrot of Mr Cotton in The Curse of the Black Pearland whispered by a mysterious voiceover as Sparrow’s ship rocked towards Davy Jones’ lair, in Till the end of the world.
It’s hard to be absolutely sure, but the melody played by Barbossa’s musicians (when the latter struts around in his luxurious ship) is very similar to the theme of the series. popeyeanother well-known sea bass.
After all, it wouldn’t be surprising if an old pirate captain like Barbossa reveled in famous sea shanties as classics.
Nicknamed “El Matador Del Mar” (“The Matador of the Sea”) by his adversaries, Captain Armando Salazar seems determined to maintain his legend every time he draws his sword. This pirate killer, sworn enemy of Jack Sparrow embodied by Javier Bardem in this fifth opus, indeed grabs his rapier like a matador in a bullfight.
After reuniting with his father – played by Keith Richards in the third installment of the saga Pirates of the Caribbean – Jack Sparrow meets another member of his family when he finds himself behind bars in this fifth installment: his uncle, played by… Paul McCartney.
With a Rolling Stones dad and an uncle Beatles, we can say that Jack has particularly rock’n’roll origins!
Uncle Jack’s joke
“Did I ever tell you the skeleton joke? It’s a skeleton walking into a bar and ordering a beer and a mop,” Jack’s uncle says to his nephew, as the latter is about to to be executed.
This little joke was not placed here by chance. Indeed, as well as Johnny Depp told the newspaper Express in 2010, it was a joke repeated to him tirelessly Al Pacino on the set of Donnie Brascowithout Depp failing to understand the meaning.
The severed heads that Jack Sparrow sees in the basket when he is on the guillotine are not just any, since they were designed to reproduce the features of the two directors of the film: Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg.
Where does the nickname Jack Sparrow come from?
During the flashback sequence where a Johnny Depp numerically rejuvenated confronts Captain Salazar, the latter reveals to us how he himself came up with the nickname Jack Sparrow, the day he saw the young pirate perched on the crow’s nest of his ship: “He was standing there , it looked like a sparrow,” he says. “And that was the day he gave himself a name that would haunt me for the rest of my life: Jack Sparrow. Jack the Sparrow.”
The Return of Captain Teague
Even if his interpreter Keith Richards (the guitarist of the Rolling Stones) is absent from this fifth part, the father of Jack Sparrow nevertheless appears furtively in Salazar’s Revenge. Still in the same flashback, we can indeed see Captain Teague just behind his son. Also rejuvenated, he is here embodied by Alexander Scheer.
Also in the sequence where Jack Sparrow confronts Salazar in the past, we can note that the young pirate is at the controls of a ship called the “Wicked Wench”. According to the Pirates of the Caribbean extended universe, this is nothing more than the name the Black Pearl originally had, before Sparrow made a deal with Davy Jones.
The return of Davy Jones
Provided you stay until the end of the credits, we can witness the return of a famous villain of the saga. Indeed, while Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann are sleeping peacefully in their bedroom, the sprawling Davy Jones bursts into the room, and vanishes when Will wakes up with a start, not without having left a few winkles on the floor.
A fairly logical reappearance, given that the powers of the Trident have now canceled all curses of the 7 seas.
