Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is a film about a group of pirates who are cursed by the Aztec gods after stealing a large amount of gold from them. The pirates, led by Captain Barbossa, need to return the gold and have the curse lifted, but to do so, they must either stain each coin with the blood of the person who took it or the blood of the person's relative.
They capture Elizabeth, the daughter of the governor of Port Royal, believing her to be the daughter of one of their former crew members, and plan to use her blood to lift the curse. Will, a blacksmith who is in love with Elizabeth, teams up with the notorious pirate Jack Sparrow to rescue her and stop the pirates. In the end, the curse is lifted and the pirates are arrested, but Jack escapes and reclaims his ship and crew.
In the Pirates of the Caribbean : Dead's Man Chest, the wedding of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann is interrupted when Lord Cutler Beckett of the East India Trading Company arrives with arrest warrants for them, as well as for Commodore James Norrington. Norrington has disappeared after losing the HMS Dauntless while pursuing Captain Jack Sparrow. Jack, meanwhile, has made a deal with Davy Jones to raise the Black Pearl from the depths, but must now join Jones' crew or be dragged to Davy Jones' Locker. Beckett offers to free Will and Elizabeth if Will retrieves Jack's compass for him. Will frees Jack and the crew from cannibals and, with the help of a voodoo priestess, learns that the key to Jones' weakness is locked in the Dead Man's Chest.
Will makes a deal with Jack to find the key in exchange for the compass, but is tricked into joining Jones' crew instead. Elizabeth's father is captured and Elizabeth bargains with Beckett to find the compass herself. She eventually locates the chest on Isla Cruces, but a sword fight breaks out between Jack, Will, and Norrington over the heart contained within. Norrington ultimately steals the heart and gives it to Beckett, allowing him to regain his place in the navy and gain control over Davy Jones and the seas. The Pearl's crew, with the help of the resurrected Hector Barbossa, sets out to rescue Jack, who has been taken to Davy Jones' Locker by the Kraken.
Lord Cutler Beckett is trying to control the oceans by executing anyone associated with piracy in Port Royal and ordering Davy Jones to destroy all pirate ships. The crew of the Black Pearl, including Jack Sparrow, Hector Barbossa, Will Turner, Elizabeth Swann, and Tia Dalma, plot to rescue Jack, who has been taken to Davy Jones' Locker. They meet Sao Feng in Singapore and recover the Pearl, but are attacked by the East India Trading Company. Tia Dalma reveals that Davy Jones was cursed to become a monster after he corrupted his purpose of guiding the souls of those who died at sea to the next world. Elizabeth and the crew are locked in the brig of the Dutchman, where she finds Will's father "Bootstrap Bill" Turner losing himself to the Dutchman's curse. Admiral James Norrington frees Elizabeth and her crew, but is killed by a crazed Bootstrap Bill. Will is rescued by Beckett and informs Jones of Jack's escape from the Locker, learning in the process that Jones enabled the imprisonment of Calypso, revealed to be Tia Dalma. Elizabeth becomes the Pirate King and Jack and Jones duel for control of Jones' heart.
After Jones mortally wounds Will, Jack helps Will stab the heart, killing Jones. The Pearl and Dutchman battle in a maelstrom and Elizabeth and Will are wed in the midst of the battle. Will departs on the Dutchman, leaving Elizabeth pregnant and with the chest containing his heart. Barbossa steals the Pearl again to find the Fountain of Youth, but finds that Jack has stolen Feng's charts. Jack departs from Tortuga on a small boat to track the fountain down.
Captain Jack Sparrow is captured and brought before King George II, who wants him to guide an expedition to the Fountain of Youth before the Spanish Navy can locate it. Jack meets his father, Captain Teague, who tells him that a ritual is required to use the Fountain of Youth. Jack also meets Angelica, his former lover and the daughter of Blackbeard, who is pretending to be him and has recruited a crew to find the Fountain. The ritual requires a mermaid's tear and two silver chalices located on Ponce de León's ship in order to activate the Fountain's healing properties. Jack and Barbossa retrieve the chalices from the Spanish and all parties locate the Fountain of Youth, which leads to a battle between Barbossa, Blackbeard, and the Spanish. In the chaos, the Spanish destroy the Fountain, believing it to be an abomination against God.
Jack tricks Blackbeard into drinking from the chalice without the mermaid's tear, causing him to die and Angelica to be healed. Barbossa claims Blackbeard's ship, crew, and sword for his own, and declares himself captain of the Queen Anne's Revenge. Jack maroons Angelica on a cay and reunites with Gibbs, who retrieves the bottled Black Pearl. In a post-credits scene, a voodoo doll of Jack created by Blackbeard is shown on a shelf, implying that Jack may not be free of Blackbeard's magic.
In this installment of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series, Captain Jack Sparrow is sought out by Henry Turner, the son of Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, to help him find the Trident of Poseidon and break his father's curse of being bound to the Flying Dutchman. Along the way, they are joined by Carina Smyth, a young astronomer, and pursued by Captain Armando Salazar, a Spanish pirate-hunter who has been cursed to exist in the Devil's Triangle, and Captain Hector Barbossa, who is seeking the Trident for a "treasure". They journey to an island where the Trident is hidden and, with the help of magic, retrieve it from the ocean floor. However, the Trident's destruction causes the sea to close in on them and they are pursued by Salazar, who is still determined to kill Jack. In the end, Salazar is defeated and the curse on Will is broken, allowing him to reunite with his family.
