Exclusive Featurette: The Pirate Lords of "At World's End"
"The pirate lords from the four corners of the earth must stand together," Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) explains in this exclusive "Pirate Lords" featurette; in the third series installment, "At World's End," we not only get to see familiar faces like Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), and Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp), but a bevy of new and diverse pirates from across the globe.
You see, after surviving the deadly arms of the Kraken in "Dead Man's Chest," our trio of heroes finds themselves up against two enemies: the undead, tentacled Captain Davy Jones and East India Trading Company commandant Cutler Beckett. In possession of Jones' heart and in control of a fleet of war ships, Beckett is intent on ridding the seas completely of the pirate class -- unless, that is, Elizabeth, Will and Jack can unite the divided pirates of the world for a final watery showdown.
Leading the new pirate faces we'll see are Chow Yun-Fat as Captain Sao Feng, whose character is reportedly based on real-life 19th century Chinese pirate Cheung Po Tsai (whose purported history is...interesting, to say the least).
