LEGO - Captain Jack Sparrow

Exclusive "Behind the Bricks" Disney Living Video Series with LEGO Master Builder, Erik Varszegi, Goes Live on YouTube

Take a behind-the-scenes look at a day in the life of a LEGO master builder as Disney Living, the official YouTube channel from Disney Consumer Products, introduces you to Erik Varszegi - the brilliant mind behind some of LEGO's most impressive, Disney-inspired creations.

The first of a three-part series, the video features an inside look at the construction of a life-size Jack Sparrow model made entirely out of LEGO bricks. Standing at over 6 feet tall and held together by nearly 150,000 tiny bricks, it's the captain like you've never seen him before! Upcoming videos will feature other Disney-inspired LEGO models including a life-size Lightning McQueen and larger-than-life depictions of Toy Story's favorite playthings, Buzz and Woody.

The LEGO Group will introduce nine exciting and versatile playsets celebrating key scenes from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, including a buildable version of Queen Anne's Revenge (SRP $119.99) and the Whitecap Bay playset ($79.99), where Jack Sparrow and the other pirates encounter mermaids. The line also includes favorite scenes from earlier films in the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Fans will have to snap up all the sets to complete their collection of favorite characters in LEGO form.

About Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (in U.S. theaters May 20, 2011)
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™. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed adventure. Crossing paths with the enigmatic Angelica (Penélope 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 Bergès-Frisbey as a mysterious mermaid.

Walt Disney Pictures' and Jerry Bruckheimer Films' "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" opens in theaters May 20, 2011, in Disney Digital 3Dâ„¢, with screen story and screenplay by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio, suggested by the novel by Tim Powers, based on characters created by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio and Stuart Beattie and Jay Wolpert.
