Commentary: Pirates of the Caribbean The movie Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl opens July 9. Commentator Andrea Cooper isn't going anywhere near this one. During a trip to Disney World last year, Cooper spent more time with Disney pirates than she ever wanted to. She and her daughter were on a ride that broke down, and they found themselves trapped with animatronic pirates yelling, "Die, ye scum!" over and over and over again.
