Trivia: Spoilers. Before the film was released, co-star Orlando Bloom confused some fans by referring to the film as both a sequel and a "soft reboot," making some think that the film was ignoring previous installments or was only going to focus on Jack Sparrow exclusively. When the film was released, it was revealed that he was actually cryptically referring to the fact that there were some shake-ups to the cast, as his character Will Turner is freed from his curse and thus could return from future films, Keira Knightly is re-introduced after being absent in the fourth film and the character of Hector Barbossa is given a hero's exit when he sacrifices himself.

More quotes from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Question: I just watched the movie and now I just have one question; wasn't it Tia Dalma who gave Jack the compass? In Dead Man's Chest she asks him if the compass he bought from her can't lead him to Davy Jones' chest. But in the newest movie a captain gives the compass to Jack.

Chosen answer: Jack was quite young when he first come into possession of the compass. In the following years he could have lost it, bartered it, had it stolen or whatever before it came back into his possession by way of Tia Dalma.


Question: They mention Poseidon's Tomb and his trident is outside it. I get that his trident was stolen from the mermaids but what happened to Poseidon? Where is he? Is he in the tomb and if so how did he die? Why isn't he trying to get his trident back?

Chosen answer: It is unknown what happened to Poseidon, and whether or not he is in the tomb or if he is alive or dead. These appear to be clues that are most likely leading to the next sequel in the POTC series.


Question: In the post-credits scene what was it under the bed?

Chosen answer: In the post credits scene, a silhouette of Davy Jones is seen entering the bedroom and Will awakens, assuming it was a dream. What is under the bed is a small puddle of water and some barnacles that presumably fell off Davy Jones' body. The scene is trying to imply that Davy Jones is back.
