Embark on an island adventure with movie prop collector Dan Lanigan to discover how “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” was brought to life. Travel to St. Vincent, the island that serves as the Caribbean backdrop for many scenes in the film. Meet legendary costume designer Penny Rose. Visit Tony Swatton at his swordsmith shop where he crafted Jack Sparrow’s sword. See early concept art and learn about the process of designing the iconic imagery for the film from concept artists Jim Byrkit and Crash McCreery. At the Walt Disney Archives, watch as model maker Don Bies reunites with a model miniature of one of Jack Sparrow’s most treasured, yet elusive, possessions – the Black Pearl. Prepare to climb aboard and set sail on the real ship used in the film, and explore Disneyland’s Pirates of the Caribbean ride in search of a prop from the film that may be hiding in plain sight.
