In honor of International Talk Like a Pirate Day, we’ve ransacked Davy Jones’ locker and have a bounty of bootie to share with you.
Start your celebration off right with a Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day image that features the entire cast of Disney’s upcoming animated adventure, The Pirate Fairy, coming Spring 2014.
The Pirate Fairy is the story of Zarina, voiced by Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), a misunderstood dust-keeper fairy who steals Pixie Hollow’s all-important Blue Pixie Dust, and flies away to join forces with the pirates of Skull Rock. Tom Hiddleston (Loki of Marvel’s The Avengers and Thor) provides the voice for Captain Hook. Expect comedy, heart and epic thrills for the whole family.
If that hasn’t gotten you in the mood to shout “Avast!” at the next person you encounter, take a listen to this selection from Disney’s album, The Lost Chords: Peter Pan. The Lost Chords is a series of releases that features never-before-heard music composed for Disney classics but never included. Below you’ll find a clip from “The Pirate Song,” recorded three different ways throughout the process of making Peter Pan. Learn more about The Lost Chords from our interview with producer Randy Thornton.
And it wouldn’t be Talk Like a Pirate Day if we didn’t mention one pirate in particular. Of course, we can only be talking about one famous buccaneer, the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow!
