Heeia Kea Boat Harbor on the Windward side of Oahu, Hawaii is currently home to the Queen Anne’s Revenge, Blackbeard’s ship from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Filming has been taking place at the ship the last week, with Johnny Depp shooting scenes as well as greeting the fans. While we can’t show you what’s been filming (psst… try YouTube), this photo gives you a good look at the ship. Shooting at the location is expected to continue through next Thurday. You’ll find the synopsis below the photo which talks more about the Queen Anne’s Revenge:
“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise –this time in Disney Digital 3D(TM). In this action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise, Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), and he’s not sure if it’s love–or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
Rush reprises his role as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa, and Kevin R. McNally returns as Captain Jack’s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs. Claflin stars as a stalwart missionary, while Berges-Frisbey is transformed into a mysterious mermaid.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is scheduled to hit 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on May 20, 2011.
