What an interesting read! Such a treat to be able to get his own views rather than that of a critic or a biographer.

Thank you, coolcat328!
Work hard, learn well, and make peace with the fact that you'll never be as cool as Johnny Depp. GQ.

:thankyou: coolcat!
Great stills, too. :captainjack:


I think you're right on the money, Snoopy!

And thank you, coolcat, as well. Johnny's writings are always so full of brutal honesty and humor - he seems to take you by the hand and paint a picture of an episode in his life with words. I've not even heard of this book; I will buy it just for the forward (well, the pics are in a class lby themselves)!

This is the first I've heard of this book as well. It sounds like a movie companion book on steroids, or some kind of growth hormone, to cover all 5 Pirate movies as the title implies.

What a line.
Very interesting how he immediately knew that Jack was a chance to embody in a character the same anti-authoritarian instincts he'd had since childhood. I think of that one still shot that Jerry took in TCOTBP extras where Johnny-as-Jack appears to be deep in reverie, perhaps focused on the connection between Jack and something deep within...

I looked the book up on Amazon. It covers ALL of Disney's pirates, not just the 5 Captain Jack movies.

    Disney Pirates: The Definitive Collector’s Anthology: Ninety years of pirates in Disney feature films, television shows, and parks.

    "You believe in pirates, of course?" Walt Disney once asked on a Disneyland television program. . . . Disney Pirates: The Definitive Collector's Anthology delves behind-the-scenes across ninety years of Disney film, television, and park history. Pirates have captured people's imaginations for centuries, and Walt Disney believed in pirates as a source of great popular entertainment. Walt's very first all live-action feature film was based upon Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, and even before that, he selected J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan, in which pirates figure so prominently, as a key feature-length animated film for his studio.

    Years later, Pirates of the Caribbean opened in Disneyland just months after Walt had passed away, making it one of the last Disney theme park attractions in which he was personally involved. That attraction ultimately spawned similar versions at Disney parks around the world, one of the most successful series in motion picture history with the five Pirates of the Caribbean films, and a vast themed land at Shanghai Disneyland called Treasure Cove--celebrating the entirety of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

I see. So obviously there will be some Peter Pan talk... I'm curious as Johnny is sure to be heavily featured whether the book will make any mention of the fact that he also played J.M. Barrie? Or will that connection, however pertinent or interesting, not be pointed out, for fear of promoting a non-Disney movie?
