On Buena Vista Home Entertainment’s release of the cool Special Edition of “Pirates Of The Caribbean” the studio has hidden some additional treasures for you.
Insert the second disc of the set and from the Main Menu select the entry “Fly On The Set.” In the next screen, highlight the “Play All” entry and then press the “Right” arrow key on your remote control. This will highlight one of the teeth on the monkey and if you press “Enter” you will get see a time-lapse clip of the construction of the pirate cave on the soundstage from beginning to end.
Now go back to the Main Menu and select “Below Deck.” Highlight “Set Sail” and then press the “Left” arrow key twice. This will highlight the skull on the medallion and give you access to an animatic of the climactic ship battle scene in the movie.
Back on the “Beyond Deck” menu, select “Scene Index” and there go to the second page of chapter stops. Highlight the entry “Pirate Ships” and then press the “Left” arrow key on your remote control. This will highlight the ring on the skeleton’s hand and give you the chance to see the Japanese trailer for the movie.
Now it is time to go back to the disc’s Main Menu and select the “Moonlight Serenade” Scene Progression. Highlight the “Main Menu” entry and then press the “Down” arrow key on your remote control twice. This will highlight one of the incisors on the skeleton. Press “Enter” now and you will see a very cool interview clip with Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards in which he discusses how Johnny Depp based elements of his character of Jack Sparrow on him – and indeed, once you make the connection, it is uncanny.
