The story is around the adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow, a witty and eccentric pirate who teams up with Will Turner, a blacksmith, in a quest to rescue Elizabeth Swan, a governor’s daughter.
Barbossa, who is Sparrow’s former shipmate, has Elizabeth captured. The whole setup sets Captain Jack Sparrow against his former pirate allies. The adventure seems to be all-too wild and wacky, and this made the first series such a captivating one which set the stage for the sequels that followed.

This sequel to the first of the series is a 2006 release, and its director was Gore Verbinski. It is a thrilling sequel where we see Lord Cutler Becket, chairman of the East India Trading company, getting in and disrupting Will Turner’s exchange of vows with Elizabeth Swan.
Lord Cutler comes with a warrant of arrest for the wedding couple, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan, and James Norrington. From the first season, you remember it was James Norrington who aided Turner and Swan’s escape.
Jack Sparrow is also on the run, escaping from Davy Jones, whom he owes. The collection of the debt would mean Sparrow loses his life in the hands of the Kraken or serve as a captive in Davy Jones’ ship.
This chase finally gets to entangle Will and Elizabeth, who are also doing all they can to secure their lives and earn back their freedom. As fate would have it, Will Turner comes to find his dad in the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones’s ship.

In this sequel, Captain Barbossa drops back into the main story and teams with Turner, Elizabeth, and his undead crew of pirates. Their quest is the search of Jack Sparrow.
The sea voyage they have to take is quite precarious, one that sees them off the edges of the map into some illusionary worlds. They follow this by travelling back to face it off with Cutler Becket and his army of the East India Trading Company. By this time, Cutler’s army has the feared Davy Jones in its ranks.
4. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
IMDb rating: 6.6/10 | Runtime: 2h 16m

Jack Sparrow has to go on an expedition with Barbossa, whose aim is to find the Fountain of Youth. This follows Sparrow’s failed attempt to save a shipmate. It is the sequel where they are coming in of Penelope Cruz, appearing as Angelica. Angelica is pretending to be Sparrow and is building her crew to find the same Fountain.

5. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales
IMDb rating: 6.5/10 | Runtime: 2h 09m
Dead Men Tell No Tales is the fifth installment under the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series. The storyline in this sequel is more of a direct follow-up to the story there was in the fourth.

It sees the introduction of Henry Turner, son of Will Turner, who comes across his dad in the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones’s ship. To set Will free, they must find the Triton of Poseidon, which has the power to see this happen, and on this realization, young Henry Turner commits his life to find the Triton of Poseidon.
But there is an undead pirate hunter named Captain Salazar. Salazar breaks from his outer-world house of bondage years later, and he does with one intent; to hunt down and kill Captain Jack Sparrow. His drive to hunt down and kill Captain Sparrow is out of the desire to get revenge on Captain Sparrow for his part in trapping Salazar into Devil’s Triangle.
At the end of it all, the three pirates, Sparrow, Barbossa, and Henry Turner, plus another woman coming from where no one knows, meet in their frantic search for the Triton of Poseidon. They all manage to flee Captain Salazar.
Is Pirates of Caribbean 6 coming?
It is unclear when Pirates of the Caribbean 6 will be released. The executive producer had hoped to release it alongside POTC 5 in 2017, but things did not go as planned. If you look at the history of the prequels that have already aired, you may anticipate the release date.
With the exception of Dead Man's Chest and At the World's End, which were released within a year of each other in 2006 and 2007, the POTC movies have always been spaced by three to six years. As a result, it's not entirely wrong to anticipate POTC 6 in 2021, sometime between May and July.
The first film in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, The Curse of the Black Pearl, was released in 2003. The first film received a lot of positive feedback from audiences and critics alike. They made $654 million worldwide and as a result the rest of the film series was released. The above is simplified details about the Pirates of the Caribbean in order.
Yen.com.gh recently published an article about the best order to watch the Lord of the Rings films. This film was directed by Peter Jackson and is based on the same-named novel. To enjoy the Lord of the Rings films, you must watch them in order of release.
Watching The Lord of the Rings in order of release to its story flow can improve your viewing experience. However, people who have read the book, including The Hobbit, may find that watching The Lord of the Rings trilogy first and then The Hobbit based on how Peter Jackson released them omits some key plot points found in the latter. But watching The Lord of the Rings movies in order of release makes much sense if you only prefer the film franchise. Check out this article for more information.
