Harry swaps his smart suit for a casual polo shirt as he is pictured at the airport After managing to lure in a mermaid named Tamara, she summons other mermaids to attack the crew before Jack causes an explosion that scares them away. A mermaid named Syrena is caught: then Philip Swift, a captive missionary, falls in love with her. Jack locates the grounded, decaying vessel, only to find Barbossa there. Both guess that the Spanish have taken the chalices, after they are nowhere to be found on the vessel.
Jack and Barbossa team up to sneak into the Spanish camp and steal the chalices. Barbossa reveals he only wants revenge against Blackbeard for attacking the Black Pearl , and his leg being amputated. Jack and Barbossa escape with the chalices. Meanwhile, Syrena, reciprocating Philip's love, is tricked into shedding a tear. Blackbeard collects it, leaving her to die of dehydration while Philip is forced to go with them. Jack returns with the chalices and bargains with Blackbeard for Angelica's safety, Jack's confiscated magical compass which they took from him before sending him to get the chalices , and Gibbs' release.
In return, Jack vows to give Blackbeard the chalices and lead him to the Fountain; Blackbeard agrees, and Gibbs is set free with the compass.
At the Fountain, Blackbeard's crew is confronted by Barbossa and his men and they battle while Barbossa and Blackbeard fight. The Spanish suddenly arrive, intending to destroy the Fountain, believing its power an abomination against God. They crush the chalices and throw them in the swamp. When Barbossa stabs Blackbeard with a poisoned sword, Angelica pulls it out and is cut and poisoned.
Jack notices Angelica is poisoned and begins frantically searching the swamp for the chalices. Barbossa obtains Blackbeard's magic sword and gains control of the Queen Anne's Revenge and her crew. Despite resistance from Blackbeard's crew, the Spanish successfully pull down a pillar, crushing the Fountain of Youth.
The Spanish army leaves once the fountain is in ruins. Philip is mortally wounded, but he returns to free Syrena. She helps Jack retrieve the missing chalices and gives them to him, telling him not to waste her tear. Syrena goes back to the dying Philip. She says she can save him if he asks her to. When he asks for her forgiveness, she kisses him and takes him underwater.
With Blackbeard and Angelica both nearing death, Jack retrieves the last remaining drops of water from the destroyed fountain and puts the tear in one of them.
Knowing that one of them must be sacrificed, he wants Angelica to drink from the chalice containing the tear. Instead, Blackbeard drinks it, asking his daughter to save him. Angelica agrees and drinks from the second chalice. Jack is upset to lose Angelica, but reveals that he made a mistake about which chalice contained the tear.
Neither of the two are happy, and they both believe Jack deliberately tricked them. Angelica's wounds are healed as the Fountain fatally consumes Blackbeard's body, killing him. Eventually, Jack and Angelica admit their love for each other, yet he distrusts her intentions aware that she may try to avenge her father and strands her on a cay. Now wielding Blackbeard's magical sword, Barbossa captains the Queen Anne's Revenge and returns to piracy. Jack finds Gibbs, who had used the compass to locate the Revenge.
He reclaims the shrunken Black Pearl and the other conquered ships in bottles, carrying them in a gunny sack. The two leave, hoping to revert the Black Pearl to its original size and continue living the pirates' life. In a post-credits scene , a voodoo doll of Jack crafted by Blackbeard washes ashore and is found by Angelica, who then smiles.
Shortly before the premiere of At World's End , Jerry Bruckheimer stated it was the end of the trilogy, but the idea of a spin-off was still possible. Los Angeles Times also reported that rights to a book were bought. He hoped Gore Verbinski would return to direct the fourth film, as his BioShock film adaptation had been put on hold. It felt new, and that was important to me. An appearance of "Old Bill", the pirate who tries to share his rum with a cat, was also filmed but cut.

Captain Harry and his Magical Mermaid
So I wouldn't call this an adaptation. The mermaids' role expanded in the script, which included a vast attack sequence. Depp was deeply involved with the story design, frequently meeting the writers to show what he was interested in doing, and in the words of Rossio, being "involved in coming up with story lines, connecting characters, creating moments that we would then fashion, shape and then go back. Afterwards, Rob Marshall and executive producer John DeLuca met Rossio and Elliot, and did alterations of their own, including building the female lead. Depp signed on to return as Captain Jack Sparrow in September , saying that he would come back if the script was good.
They both thought the storyline involving their characters had gone as far as it could. But actually I don't mind that at all. I'm a fan of the first one especially and I think the trilogy we've made is great.source

I'd almost like them to leave it there. She needed to be funny and clever and smart and crafty and beautiful",  and invited her for the role as they wrapped the production of Nine. Casting for mermaids required the actresses to have natural breasts—no implants. As Bruckheimer explained to EW , "I don't think they had breast augmentation in the s, [ Principal photography began on June 14, , in Hawaii. Bruckheimer said the decision to film in 3D was made due to its being "immersive filmmaking; I think it makes you part of the actual filming because you're part of the screen.
Only one sequence was shot conventionally and needed a 3D conversion. This meant the cameras could be brought into locations such as the Hawaiian jungle. Queen Anne's Revenge was built atop Sunset , the same ship used to depict Black Pearl in previous installments. In February , Sunset was sailed from Long Beach to a shipyard in Hawaii for the reforms, where a big concern was to make it imposing, with three stories, without sacrificing actual seakeeping. Given Blackbeard was meant to be the meanest pirate to appear in the series, the look for Queen Anne's Revenge was ominous, with sails dyed blood red, various elements on fire, and a decoration based on skulls and bones drawing inspiration from the Sedlec Ossuary in Czech Republic.
Damage from cannon fire was also added to show that "not only Blackbeard was a dying man, but his ship is also a dying ship". The ship's figurehead also drew inspiration from Blackbeard's pirate flag. The locations leading up to the Fountain were shot in the Hawaiian islands of Kauai and Oahu , but the Fountain itself was built at the Stage on Pinewood. On Stranger Tides employed 1, shots of computer-generated imagery ,  which were done by ten visual effects companies. Cleaning up plates is double the work, and tracking has to be spot on.
Mermaid corpses were depicted by plaster models. To make the mermaids more menacing underwater, the faces of the actresses had some digital touch-ups on the underwater scenes, adding sharper teeth and a shimmery fish scale quality on the skin. The film's score was written by Hans Zimmer , who had worked in all of the previous entries in the franchise; being the main composer for the second and third installments. The world premiere of On Stranger Tides was on May 7, , at a premium ticket screening at Disneyland in Anaheim, California , home of the original Pirates of the Caribbean ride that inspired the film series.
Many of the film's stars were in attendance. Two other early screenings followed, one in Moscow on May 11,  and another during the Cannes International Film Festival on May Disney's marketing president, MT Carney , said that the film's advertising campaign was intended "to remind people of why they fell in love with Jack Sparrow in the first place and also introduce new elements in a way that was elegant".
