Here’s a first look at Paul McCartney in Pirates of the Caribbean

Here it is! Our very first glimpse at what music legend Paul McCartney will look like in the newest upcoming instalment in the Pirates of the Caribbean saga.

Feast your eyes on the artwork below:

Beatles man Paul McCartney is following the example of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, who of course played Jack Sparrow’s dad in Pirates of the Carribean: At World’s End.

Safe to say we can’t wait to see what McCartney’s character can bring to the table in the film.

Digital Spy recently caught up with Orlando Bloom, who explained what we can expect from the film and how it looks to the first movies for inspiration.

“For a lot of people, the first movie is their favourite and they wanted to bring the film back into line with that. So the narrative is similar. They didn’t overload the special effects.

“When you’re seeing some of these action set-pieces, they actually got filmed, people were actually there doing that, as it was in Pirates 1, 2, and 3, that I was involved in.

“I was inside the water wheel as it was running down the hill [in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest], I was on top of it on a wire, all that stuff was real.

“It was totally nuts but really cool that they did it like that, and they’ve done it like that again.

Meanwhile, one trailer for the upcoming film revealed a rather important character-return spoiler….

Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge opens on May 26, 2017 in the US and the UK.
