Johnny Depp originally wanted "Captain Jack Sparrow" to have no nose! He also suggested that the character should be afraid of things like pepper and have a cold. However, his proposals were rejected by Disney... what a pity!
The powder that is scattered all over "Will" after "William Tuner" and "Jack Sparrow" have a fight, is, in fact, chocolate powder.
During a night shoot, the boat on which Keira Knightley, her mother, and the skipper were on board capsized as it headed back to shore. Although no one there was injured, it was decided that the night scenes should be shot in a studio.
The third installment of Pirates of the Caribbean is the most expensive film ever made, costing a huge $300 million, which means it was more expensive to produce than all three of the The Lord Of The Rings movies together.
In Disneyland there was already a ride called Pirates of the Caribbean before the film was produced. Elements of the ride were used in the film. In one such scene, "Jack" and his cellmate are trapped. His cellmate wants to coax the watchdog, who has the key to the cell, to come closer. However, "Jack" tells him not to bother, saying, "the dog will not move anyway", an allusion to the fact that the dog in the Disneyland attraction does not move either.
In the first draft of the screenplay, the character of "Captain Barbossa" was actually Italian and not English.
In the third part of Pirates of the Caribbean, "Barbossa's" Christian name "Hector" is first mentioned. There was initially no intention of giving "Barbossa" a first name, but Johnny Depp made a joke about, "Barbossa" meaning "Hector" in some DVD bonus material, which fans then took seriously, which is why the producers then decided to use it in the film.
The scene in which "Jack" and "Elizabeth" kiss was not mentioned in Orlando Bloom's script so that the actor's response to the kiss would be more authentic. As it turns out, "Will Turner" definitely looked shocked!
Johnny Depp wore special contact lenses that functioned as sunglasses during filming to protect his eyes.
Johnny Depp modeled his character "Jack Sparrow" on The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards. The rock star was therefore offered a cameo in the third and fourth part of the franchise as "Jack's" father, "Captain Teague", which he played beautifully.
The smoke produced from the last cannon on the "Black Pearl", fired after the siege of the city in the first film is reminiscent of Mickey Mouse's head - a hidden nod to Disney?
Orlando Bloom plays "Will Turner". Interestingly, Jude Law, Tobey Maguire, and Christian Bale were all also considered for the role.
Johnny Depp sung constantly while on set for the third movie (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End). The reason: he was practicing for his next role as "Sweeney Todd".
Legendary director Steven Spielberg originally wanted to direct the film, but with either Bill Murray, Steve Martin or Robin Williams attached as "Captain Jack Sparrow". However, Disney did not give him the rights for the film.
