What order do the Pirates of the Caribbean movies go in?

Pirates of the Caribbean is a series of fantasy and swordsman films produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and based on the walk in the Walt Disney theme park of the same name.

Series directors include Gore Verbinski (1–3), Rob Marshall (4) and Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (5).

The series was specially written by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio (1-4); Other writers include Stuart Beattie (1), Jay Wolpert (1), and Jeff Nathanson (5).

The stories followed the adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), Héctor Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), Joshamee Gibbs (Kevin McNally), Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley).

Films take place in a fictional historical setting; a world largely governed by an amalgamation of alternate versions of the British Empire and the East India Company, with pirates representing the freedom of the ruling powers.

  1. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
  2. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006)
  3. The Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (2007)
  4. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)
  5. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell no Tales (2017)

Fun fact: In my country for some reason, the title for the last movie wasn’t Dead Man Tell no Tales, rather it was The Revenge of Salazhar’s Jewel. I don’t know whether that is a good thing or just a printing error.

I did a bunch of searching to try and find the in-universe timeline, but the best I could discover was that 1–3 take place between 1720 & 1750 and On Stranger Tides took place in 1750.

With some further guesswork based on #4 being in 1750, I came up with this Pirates of the Caribbean Timeline.

  • The Curse of the Black Pearl: 1735
  • Dead Man’s Chest: 1737
  • At World’s End: 1738
  • On Stranger Tides: 1750
  • Dead Men Tell No Tales: 1760

The only date that is definite is On Stranger Tides: 1750. The rest I worked backward on, making some guesses and assumptions that could very very easily be wrong.

For example, at the end of At World’s End, we see Will has a grown child. I read somewhere that he was 12.

Since #4 is 1750 we can guess that #3 ended in 1738. #3 happened at the same time as #2, but I made it a full year since traveling times weren’t exactly quick back then.

And there was some time between 1 & 2, and there was some time during 1 so I made it a 2-year gap overall.

Dead Men Tell No Tales:

So I just got around to watching this (loved it by the way) so I adjusted the timeline slightly and I’m adding this in.

I’ve heard different theories on this timeline, but this is the one I believe. Here’s my reasoning on DMTNT.

So at the end of On Stranger Tides, we see Will standing with his son. The opening of Dead Men Tell No Tales involves his son.

It seems to me that this couldn’t have happened at the same time, but instead is likely to be about a year later.

Which would put the start of the film in 1751. The film skips to 9 years later for the real start of the film.

Which would put Henry on 21/22 or so which seems to make more sense than the 17 I’ve read elsewhere.

Anyway, this isn’t gospel, just my own personal best guess.

They go in order of the release date and pretty much follow the pattern.

There’s not too much to discuss here regarding the timeline.

By the way, I was a huge fan of pirates as a child, thus I’ve gathered a vast library of interesting/strange facts about their lifestyle.

Here are a few:

  • The pirates created an order that allowed them to vote for their captains.
  • The crew retained the right to depose their leader if they so chose.
  • There was a system of checks and balances.
  • They had a health care system.
  • Booty was distributed fairly according to skill and duty.
  • Eye patches. Those who wore them rarely did so because they’d lost an eye. They wore them so that when they were descending from the deck of a ship down into the depths, especially when boarding and raiding, they could switch the eye patch from one eye to the other and gain instant night vision with no adjustment period.
  • Julius Ceaser was kidnapped by Pirates, he said he would crucify them causing them to laugh. He was later rescued, raised a fleet, hunted them down and crucified them
  • Considering the diet of a pirate they’d be on keto for the first few weeks at sea (cheese, eggs, some vegetables, and meat). Not considering the rum of course. Afterward, they’d be limiting their eating windows due to the lack of food, which can be considered as modern intermittent fasting.

Should I watch the Pirates of the Caribbean movies?

It depends on how cute you think Johnny Depp is.

For the first one, you don’t have to think he’s cute. If you like a decent action movie, you’ll like it.

The second and third one: You must love Johnny Depp to get through these. They are pretty awful.

There are some good scenes and a few decent effects. However, if you don’t love Depp, skip them. You do not need them.

The fourth one is worth a watch. It gets better. It may actually be better than the first one, though I’m not an Orlando Bloom fan (these movies did that to me).

So if you have a few hours to kill, go for it regardless. If you love Johnny Depp, watch them all, they are all about him. It’s about him being a “pirate” while mainly consisting of him being cute.

There is very little actual piracy going on in these movies. It’s about as pirate-related as a pirate-themed birthday party. Actually a birthday party has more piracy, kids can be vicious.

I highly recommend Pirates of the Caribbean movies to anyone regardless of age or primary interests. Here is why.

  • Characters – Movie is filled with numerous surprisingly successful characters such as Barbossa, Will&Elizabeth Turner, Davy Jones, Lord Beckett, etc.
  • One of the greatest characters in movie history – Yes, I am talking about CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow.
  • Humor – Most fantasy movies have a fair share of this spice, but few can match the franchise.
  • Soundtrack – Hans Zimmer’s greatest masterpiece, “He’s a pirate” never fails to liven up scenes. It is in perfect accord with the movies.
  • Visual and practical effects – Movies are among the best ever in this category also.
