Disney Consumer Products charted a course for adventure as it unveiled a new toy line that captures the fantasy, action and adventure of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth installment of the film series set for release in Disney Digital 3D on May 20, 2011. At a pirate-themed preview event last night in New York City, the Pirates of the Caribbean toy assortment from JAKKS Pacific, Inc. and new LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean: The Video Game and construction toys were unveiled before an invitation-only crowd of toy industry insiders as a preview to the upcoming American International Toy Fair. Disney Consumer Products and JAKKS Pacific also presented actor Ian McShane, who portrays new pirate character Blackbeard, with a one-of-a-kind 12-inch action figure inspired by the toy line. The film’s Academy Award-winning production designer John Myhre was also on hand as guests were treated to the reveal of a life-sized figure of Captain Jack Sparrow standing a full six feet tall and made of 150,000 LEGO bricks.

“Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean is the ultimate pirate franchise bringing to life the fun and adventure in pirate role play that kids just love,” said Jo Pascoe, director of toys at Disney Consumer Products. “With Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, we wanted to bring the entertaining characters and action-packed scenes from the big screen into the home for dynamic and imaginative play. Fans, kids and collectors are in for a treat.”

About Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (in U.S. theaters May 20, 2011)

Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise—this time in Disney Digital 3D™. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed adventure. Crossing paths with the enigmatic Angelica (Penelope Cruz), he’s not sure if it’s love—or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the “Queen Anne’s Revenge,” the ship of the legendary pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or Angelica, with whom he shares a mysterious past. The international cast includes franchise vets Geoffrey Rush as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack’s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, plus Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.
