Trivia: For those of you who have been wondering, there is a deleted scene which describes Jack's debt with Davy Jones and the hatred between Jack and Beckett in greater detail. Here is how the story goes: Jack used to be the captain of a ship called the Wicked Wench, a ship owned by the East India Trading Company, and so it indirectly belonged to Beckett. When Jack had to carry a cargo of slaves, he set them free instead of deliver them as he was ordered by Beckett. Beckett branded Jack as a pirate and burned the Wicked Wench until it sank. Jack managed to escape and struck a deal with Davy Jones to raise the Wicked Wench in perfect condition except for the permanently blackened hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl. In return, Jack would give Davy Jones 100 years of service after he had been captain of the Black Pearl for 13 years. This served as the main plot device of the second film.
Trivia: After the ship goes over the falls (essentially the 'edge of the world') to Davy Jones's locker and the scene blacks out, a montage of sound clips is played. These clips are actual sound clips from the park ride itself. This is because the Pirates of the Caribbean ride begins with the boat-shaped cars making a trip over a small waterfall, similar to the boat going over the falls in the movie.
