How to Watch the Pirates of the Caribbean Movies in Order

Get your Captain Jack fix the right way by watching them in order

The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise spans five movies and as a Disney property they are all available to stream on the Disney+ service. You can also find all of the movies on Amazon Prime Video if you want to take advantage of your Prime subscription to watch them there—though you will need to pay extra for most of them.

While Amazon does have all of the films, bonus content like cast interviews and deleted scenes, often need to be specifically purchased or rented along with individual films. On Disney+, that content is automatically available as part of your subscription and accessible in the menu system alongside every film.

The Pirates of the Caribbean films have a total runtime of 726 minutes, so it would take you just over 12 hours to watch them all back to back. That doesn't account for bathroom and snack breaks though—which you should definitely do—nor the few precious seconds it takes to navigate from one film to another in Disney+.

As common as it is for big movie franchises to jump around in time, making it all the more complicated for fans who want to watch them in the optimal order, you want to watch Pirates of the Caribbean in chronological order—it matches the chronology of the film universe too.

Starting with the original 2003 release of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, you can watch the Pirates of the Caribbean series in order and not miss out on anything. If you want more, then you might want to check out some of the extras you can find on Disney +. There are heaps of extra and deleted scenes, original trailers, blooper reels, and even CGI scene development shorts that are well worth your time.

When you're finished with Pirates of the Caribbean, consider watching the Star Wars movies in order next. You can use Disney+ for that too.

Super Fan? Add the Secret Short Film to Your List

Watching The Pirates of the Caribbean chronological order is easy if you stick to the main films, but there is a short film that technically acts as a prequel to the entire franchise. Pirates of the Caribbean: Tales of the Code - Wedlocked was only officially released as a special feature on the US 15-disc 3D Blu-ray/2D Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy release that includes the first four films, as well as the UK five disc set.

It's not available on any streaming platforms in any official capacity. Fortunately, super fans like you have been making it available on YouTube for the past decade, and nobody has seen fit to take it down.
