Disney Wants You To Show ‘Em Your Tits

The other week a casting notice went out for a couple of crucial scenes on “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”, the upcoming fourth film in Disney’s mega-franchise. The notice required fit athletic women aged 18-30 with professional dancing, diving and swimming ability.

One noted requirement though – “MUST have real breasts. Do not submit if you have implants” according to the sheet. It’s an effort to be historically accurate and actually quite commendable on the studio’s part. Of course that didn’t stop many on the Net having a field day with every breast-related pun you can think of.

On the weekend however, a few new details emerged over at The Sunday Times about the sequences. Seems that casting agents say “the bouncier the better” when it comes to the female extras for the film, “especially for sword-fighting action sequences”.

As a result, quite soon there will be what The New York Post dubs “a Hollywood-style jiggle-your-jugs test and jog for judges” that will take place during the upcoming costuming and fitting sessions. Those which are found to be false are out, no exceptions.

The project marks a rare reversal on this position for Hollywood. Even this franchise in the past sought women with a ‘bustier’ look for the various ‘saucy wenches’ that populated the background and had no issue with them having implants.

Filming on the fourth ‘Pirates’ kicks off in Hawaii around June.
