Something of the Thread: On Stranger Tides

December 19th, 2010 by | 3 comments

Are you excited about the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film as well? If so, speak your mind in this thread about the movie that’s inspired by Tim Powers’ book On Stranger Tides, which inspired Monkey Island, which in turn shares quite a few themes with Pirates of the Caribbean… well, just watch the trailer, then you’ll understand. Also, Homestar Runner is back!

    As Jake Rodkin of The Idle Thumbs Podcast once said – “On Stranger Tides is the book that Ron Gilbert was reading while making Monkey Island and the Pirates of the Carribean Ride was the other inspiration for that game. The Monkey Island games were going to be adapted into a feature film at one point by Industrial Light and Magic (it was going to be an animated thing). It was pitched to the screenwriters of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Then, a lot of the people who were working on the Monkey Island film ended up being the effects crew for the Pirates of the Carribean movie, which was written by the guys who had been pitched the story for the Monkey Island film. Now, they are adapting the book that was the inspiration for the Monkey Island game, which was also based on the Pirates of the Carribean ride into the next Pirates of the Carribean movie.” – lovely 😀
