Over the past year, fans of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean have come to the conclusion that On Stranger Tides, will center on the elusive Fountain of Youth. Amidst such speculation the studio has finally decided to come clean and have released an official plot synopsis. Find out what trouble Jack Sparrow will encounter when he hits the high seas the fourth time around…

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). In this action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), and 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 formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.”

On Stranger Tides is currently filming in Hawaii as you might have noticed from the photos tweeted by producer Jerry Bruckheimer last week. Besides Depp,Cruz, and McShane, the film stars Geoffrey Rush, Stephen Graham, Sam Claflin, Greg Ellis, Gemma Ward, and The Losers Óscar Jaenada.

I don’t know about you but this sounds like another way for Disney to milk this franchise dry. Without Will and Elizabeth, they’ll have a lot of empty space to fill and it looks like they’re doing so by throwing in two well know tales, the Fountain of Youth and the legend of Blackbeard the Pirate. Do you think it will work?

Pirates of the Caribbean on Stranger Tides hits theaters on May 20, 2011.
