Disney has released some concept art for the zombies that will be shuffling around Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. What’s cool about seeing concept art is that you don’t know which final design made it into the movie and you can look across various concepts to see certain motifs. In the case of the POTC zombies, you can see that bones pierce the skin and that the mouths have been sewn shut. Hopefully there’s a reason for that design beyond “It looks cool.”
Hit the jump to check out the concept art. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides stars Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, and Ian McShane. It opens in 3D on May 20th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides:
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, “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). Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed adventure. Crossing paths with the enigmatic Angelica (Penelope Cruz), 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 legendary pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know whom to fear more: Blackbeard or Angelica, with whom he shares a mysterious past. The international cast includes franchise vets Geoffrey Rush as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa and Kevin R. McNally as Captain Jack’s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs, plus Sam Claflin as a stalwart missionary and Astrid Berges-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.
