Living in Australia I will have to wait for the Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug to release on the 26th of December so please tag things. Yes I know the books and the ending but visually and dialog wise I would like to be surprised and I know some people like to do early gifs when possible.
Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk. After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl.
Yo, this is why Norrington said he’s the “worst pirate I’ve ever heard of,” and then Jack followed it up with, “But you have heard of me.”
Because Jack was branded a Pirate because he freed people rather than stealing anything. So Norrington, with his sense of duty, knows that Jack has been branded a criminal for actively not being a terrible human being. Norrington is torn between his duty as a naval officer and knowing that Jack is right.
He freed exactly 100 people, that’s why his debt to Jones was 100 souls. Davy has a sick sense of irony after all. Jack freed 100 souls and as a consequence his ship got sunk. Now his ship has been raised and as a consequence, he has to enslave 100 souls. This explains his reluctance to actually pay back the debt.
Crap, the latter portion of this franchise was a lot smarter than I thought it was…
There’s so much people don’t get about this franchise, the story is really more complex than just “funny drunken pirate meets hottie lady and hottie man with occasional visits from squid man”.
I preordered this lovely morsel above from the WETA website and it’s also getting signed which I’m pretty excited about. I’ve been lucky enough to hear one of the artists from the company do a talk about the first film and how they went about a few of the design aspects etc. (The first two books are a great read and inspiration go get them now.) Also Typism is coming in the mail soon hopefully before christmas.
The conference and speakers for Typism were just fantastic so it was not hard to preorder it.
Now you can all see how obsessed I am with art books.
