BURBANK, Calif., September 19, 2006 – Today, everyone’s a pirate as the world celebrates International “Talk Like a Pirate Day,” and to kick off the rabble rousing, Disney Home Entertainment announces the highly anticipated DVD release of Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.

The action-packed worldwide film sensation will make its Disney DVD debut on December 5th. Starring Johnny Depp as that mischievous, heroic rogue Captain Jack Sparrow, this epic adventure has taken audiences by storm. The film’s Theatrical opening weekend was the biggest in U.S. boxoffice history, and the high-seas Hollywood tidal wave continues with a worldwide box-office gross of over a billion dollars to date, making it Disney’s most successful movie of all time.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest will be released as both a deluxe 2-disc Special Edition DVD set and as a single-disc DVD. The single-disc DVD features screenwriter audio commentary and the hilarious, never-before-seen “Bloopers of the Caribbean.” The Special Edition features limited availability holographic packaging and includes all single disc features, plus a treasure-chest of bonus booty: a behind-the-scenes documentary; a Captain Jack featurette; a swordfighting featurette; “Creating The Kraken” on the film’s stunning sea beast; “Fly On The Set” – an onlocation view of filming; a featurette on the legend of Davy Jones; bonus program on the newly “re- Imagineered” Pirates of the Caribbean resort attraction; star-studded, red-carpet Hollywood premiere footage; producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s personal on-set photo diary, and more. Much of the bonus material is exclusive to this DVD release.

To launch the “Talk Like A Pirate Day” festivities, Disney Home Entertainment is unleashing “Dead Man’s Mail”, an interactive site and emailable interface hosted by a rogue talking skull with a penchant for dressing up. Tips on the site for speaking like a true Pirate of the Caribbean are guaranteed to get tongues wagging.
