Fifth “Pirates” Featurette Confirms Fan Theory

Walt Disney Pictures has released a new featurette for “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” one which nonchalantly confirms a fan theory about one of the film’s new main characters.


As we know, the film has the vengeful and supernatural Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) escaping the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea – including Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) who trapped him there in the first place.

Jack forges an alliance with both a beautiful astronomer named Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), and a young Royal Navy sailor named Henry (Brenton Thwaites). The clip reveals Henry’s last name – Turner. Yes it looks like Thwaites is playing the grown son of Orlando Bloom’s Will Turner and Keira Knightley’s Elizabeth Swann.

Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning helm the film which opens May 26th.
