"Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" opens in theaters across the nation on Friday, May 25th, but if you want to go to the premiere beforehand and rub elbows with celebrities, here's your chance!
The Walt Disney Company is donating proceeds from the World Premiere of "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" to the Make-A-Wish Foundation®. The event will take place on May 19th at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, and all the stars of the movie are expected to appear. The celebration will raise $3 million for Make-A-Wish efforts, with Disney providing an additional $1 million.
For the first time, the public is invited to a premiere of one the "Pirates" movies. Tickets are a cool $1,500 (hey, it's for charity!) and are now available at www.piratespremiere.com
If you're not up for spending that kind of cash to see the movie in advance and the possibility of seeing Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley up close, the movie opens just a few days later across the nation. $1,500 should just about cover the movie ticket and popcorn, and maybe even parking...
The entire release from Disney is below.
World Premiere Celebration for Disney’s Third "Pirates" Adventure -- "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End" -- to Raise $3 Million for the Make-A-Wish Foundation®
Star-Studded Swashbuckling Disneyland Premiere on May 19th is the Hottest Event of the Year; Public Can Purchase Tickets for the First Time
This is the first time that the public has been invited to participate in a “Pirates” Premiere. Individual tickets are priced at $1,500, and are now available for sale at www.piratespremiere.com. The Make-A-Wish Foundation of America and Make-A-Wish International are dedicated to granting the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions in order to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
Commenting on the announcement, Cook said, “Disney is dedicated to making dreams come true and we’re extremely proud to be lending our support to the Make-A-Wish Foundation with this benefit World Premiere of ‘Pirates’ to make a difference. The Studio is extremely excited about the upcoming release of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End’ and we’re pulling out all the stops to give it the send-off it deserves with a magnificent gala event at Disneyland. Disney has been a longtime supporter of this wonderful organization and we’re excited to be doing something special to bring smiles to the children and their families, giving them magical moments to share.”
Over the past 25 years, Disney has continued to support the Make-A-Wish cause, contributing more than $10 million in cash and in-kind donations on an annual basis. With more than 6,000 wishes granted each year including visits to the Disney Parks, Disney Cruises, meeting Disney Characters and visiting TV and movie sets, including “Pirates of the Caribbean” films, Disney-themed wishes continue to be the most popular requests.
“Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” picks up where the record-breaking 2006 smash hit left off, with our heroes Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) allied with Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) in a desperate quest to free Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) from his mind-bending trap in Davy Jones’ locker. With the terrifying ghost ship, The Flying Dutchman, and its commander Davy Jones under the control of the East India Trading Company, there is havoc on the Seven Seas. Navigating through treachery, betrayal and wild waters, the heroic trio must forge their way to exotic Singapore and confront the cunning Pirate Sao Feng (Chow Yun-Fat). Now headed beyond the very ends of the earth, each must ultimately choose a side in a final titanic battle – as not only their lives and fortunes, but the entire future of the freedom-loving Pirate way hangs in the balance. Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Gore Verbinski from a screenplay written by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio, our beloved cast sets sail again on a fresh new adventure in May 2007.
