1. Pirates of The Caribbean: Tales of The Code – Wedlocked (2011) – Short Movie
This is for die-hard Pirates of the Caribbean enthusiasts. James Ward Byrkit’s short film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Tales of the Code, was exclusively included as a special feature in the US 15-disc 3D Blu-ray/2D Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy box set, which also contains films 1-4, and in the comparable UK five-disc version.
Wenches Giselle (Vanessa Branch) and Scarlett (Lauren Maher) set each other up for their wedding, where they would each wed their respective grooms. The two wenches find themselves in an auction run by the Auctioneer after finding that both of their grooms—Jack Sparrow—were the same person.
The short video acts as a prelude to The Curse of the Black Pearl by explaining why Jack Sparrow’s ship, the Jolly Mon, was shown sinking at the beginning of the entire story, as well as why wench Giselle and Scarlett were so angry with him. It also suggests how Cotton lost his tongue. The “Auction scene” from the original Disney park experience served as the basis for the story.
While working on sets for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006) and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Byrkit had the concept for the project (2007).
The short project was planned in a matter of days and shot over three days because the pirate cove sets from the feature films, where the short film is located, were scheduled to be torn down. The Pirate Code Book served as the inspiration for Byrkit’s short film because it was a plot device that might be used in future works.
