In promotion of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth installment of the film series, this weekend Disney released a new trailer offering a further look at Jack Sparrow’s journey to find the Fountain of Youth.

It appears that along the way, new “Pirates” villain Blackbeard has taken the famous Black Pearl and Captain Jack is once again on the hunt for his ship – and must capture a mermaid along the way, if he is to find the fountain he seeks:

The Little Mermaid this is not. These mermaids are fierce.

This is the first “Pirates” film to be shot and released in 3D and judging from the trailer, audiences can expect many swords to be waved unnecessarily in their faces:

Fozzie Bear would be proud.

To used an already overused phrase, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides “sets sail” in theaters on May 20, 2011, with an expected red carpet premiere to take place at Disneyland on May 7.
