The Pirates! Band of Misfits- New stop motion film from Aardman:
D'yaaaaaaaaaaaaah ya beat me to it!
Editor among edits!About time they do a stop-motion film. :)
"I am what I am"- Popeye
UTINNI!Yo ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, he, he, he, he, he. That looks like it could be a good one. About time the pirate flick revival get something behind it other than Pirates of the Caribbean.
Editor among edits!Besides this, is Aardman planning anything else for their list of stop motion projects?
"I am what I am"- Popeye
Is that a dodo? HE HAS A DODO FOR A PET!!! :D
They got a version of Tortoise and the Hare in development. If this and Arthur Christmas do well, we might be getting another.
Pirate AND writer!It's official; my beloved Aardman is finally coming back!!!!!
The UK trailer. This is even funnier than the other trailer, and they sing!
Darkness and DisgraceHey, before Flushed Away, didn't they pitch a pirate movie to Dreamworks that got shot down because "no one liked Pirate movies anymore"? Looks like they're finally making it on their own!
Save a webcomic, read Commander Kitty! "You got your head all tangled up, but if I could only make you care..."
Is this based on Gideon Defoe's Pirates books? 'Cause if so, I am so there! EDIT: I just noticed that the European title of the movie is the title of the first book, looks like I was right!

"Aren't you cold, Finn?"
Pirate AND writer!Yeah, this one is actually based on a book. But you're right, they did pitch the idea of a pirate movie back in 2000 which eventually became Flushed Away. I'm hoping they get to stick some elements from that idea into this movie. The trailer didn't disappoint at all, considering that I've waited six years for it!

And the morale of the story: DreamWorks couldn't predict the movie trends if they saw it in front of them!
Pirate AND writer!To be fair, I don't think anyone else saw it coming, either. And if Johnny Depp hadn't created the Captain Jack we know and love, it probably wouldn't have been as big a hit.
Should we make a page? it seems like we have enough pre-release information to make a proper page.
I Am The WalrusIt's got a fish in a hat!

Apparently, according to The Other Wiki, Crispin Freeman is the Narrator. Thoughts?

Pirate AND writer!Wow, impressive resume. Good to see they picked an actual voice actor over just some random celebrity. Still, I wonder why they chose this guy.
They probably watched him in that series and thought he could make a good Lemony Narrator. Because in this movie, that would be brilliant.
Pirate AND writer!Makes sense. Aardman does love their snarkiness.
CRISPIN FREEMAN IS THE NARRATOR!?!? HOW THE HELL—
