Margot Robbie To Star in New ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Film

Ahoy, mateys. Lower the sail! Raise the anchor! Prepare to set sail for Reboot Island!

Okay, so while I clearly am not qualified to write the picture, Disney is getting ready to restart the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise with a new approach. The Hollywood Reporter says they have brought in Margot Robbie to star in a “female-fronted” Pirates movie, written by Christina Hodson, who did the screenplay for Robbie’s Birds of Prey.

According to THR, this is a wholly new take on the concept of pirates in the Caribbean. Don’t expect to see Captain Jack:

While plot details are being kept in Davey Jones’ locker, the project, in early development, is not intended to be a spinoff of the long-running franchise that had pirate Jack Sparrow at its center but rather a wholly original story with new characters under the Pirates moniker, itself inspired by the long-running attraction at Disneyland. The new project is said to be separate from the already announced reboot of the popular franchise that has Pirates scribe Ted Elliott and Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin developing the story.

I’m not sure why you would have two different Pirates reboots at the same time, unless you don’t think one of them is going to pan out or you’re planning to turn Pirates into some kind of cinematic universe featuring different ships with different characters who eventually meet up. That could be kind of fun, I suppose, although the Pirates franchise as a whole really felt like it ran its course by the final Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in 2017.

At this rate, though, any new Pirates movie is probably like three to five years away. By then, people may miss the property enough to be excited by a new take on it, especially from Robbie and Hodson. I do think this Reboot Island concept has some promise.

Horrible Histories – British Things lyrics

[Intro]
I love to be a British queen
I am Victoria, you see
Now where’s my British butler
With my British cup of tea?
Tea is not from Britain, ma’am
From India it was brought
Yes, for your cuppa, thousands died
And many wars were fought

[Chorus]
British things, my British things
It seems that tea is not
British things, my British things
Can I sweeten it a jot?

[Verse 1]
Do tell me sugar’s British though
No, it’s Caribbean imported
For sugar in your cup of tea
Slavery’s been supported
I know it’s wrong, your majesty
But slaves in Africa
Worked hard in fields of sugar cane
To sweeten up your char

[Chorus]
British things, ah British things
I thought that there were many
British things, ah British things

Afraid there’s hardly any

[Verse 2]
You know your British cotton vest
What’s wrong with it?
Explain!
The cotton’s from America
And picked by… slaves again!

[Verse 3]
Your empire’s built on fighting wars
That’s how your income’s swollen
Your British things are from abroad
And most are frankly stolen

[Hook]
Whatever next? Go on! Pray tell!
Our British queen is foreign as well?

[Verse 4]
It’s true, I am of foreign descent
And your husband, Albert? A German gent!
At least I’ve got a British name
Victoria’s Latin… that’s a shame!

[Chorus]
British things, ah British things
There are no, we declare
All our favourite British things
Seem to come from elsewhere!

Ray Blk – My Hood

[Verse 1: Ray BLK]
Socks and sliders everywhere and every day
Full English breakfast at a caff, not a café
No, no, baby, we don’t let strangers come our way
But you should come to my hood, my hood, my hood
Meet me at Morley’s, best fried chicken is in South
I’ll show you gangsters, don’t you go running your mouth
Mopeds are racing, 2AM outside my house, oh yeah, it’s loud
But come to my hood, my hood, my hood

[Link: Ray BLK]
Oh, you should come to my hood, my hood, my hood, my hood
You should come to my hood, my hood, my hood
Yeah, you should come to my hood, my hood, my hood, my hood
You should come to my hood, my hood, my hood
[Verse 2: Ray BLK]
Barely anyone at school after 15
We’re chasing paper then Blue Borough should be green
I won’t lie, finding a way out is our dream
But you should come to my hood, my hood, my hood
Top floor of Pepys estate, we’ll show you our world
That building turns you to a woman from a girl
Now time to stop, life flashes past you in a whirl
But you should come to my hood, my hood, my hood

[Chorus: Ray BLK]
On these streets, these streets
In the dark, we glow
On these streets, these streets
We’re high when it’s low
On these streets, these streets
Through concrete, flowers grow
In my hood, my hood, my hood, my hood
You should come to my hood, my hood, my hood

[Verse 3: Stormzy]
I’m from a hood where niggas make their money, then they move
The woman in the Caribbean shop is always rude
Tryna get a patty just to compliment my food
So why you gotta tell my friends to move?
No, we gotta balls the food when we see the feds spin it
Bare “wah gwan”s, I ain’t seen you for a minute
Coming from the land of wings and chicken filets
Where you’re from, man won’t be able to read but he can bill it
You can see why that’s a problem, any given problem
Staring in my face? I’mma ask you “what’s the problem?”
You can be Bane or you can be Robin
But we’ve had a lot of Dark Knights living up in Gotham
Man, there’s babies having babies, man, it’s crazy up in my hood
Shit’s got me praying that I die good
Where we’d rather buy guns before we buy books
Where they left us in the dark, so we light kush, my hood

[Bridge: Ray BLK]
There’s no place like home, no place like home
Buy me any ticket, I don’t wanna go
To a town where there’s no one like me round
Don’t take me there or anywhere

[Chorus: Ray BLK]
On these streets, these streets
In the dark, we glow
On these streets, these streets
We’re high when it’s low
On these streets, these streets
Through concrete, flowers grow
In my hood, my hood, my hood, my hood
You should come to my hood, my hood, my hood
