The Pirates! Go Interactive

David Tennant voices character in Pirates! Band of MisfitsAvast me Hearties! Fancy learning more about The Pirates! Band of Misfits – the lastest film from the geniuses at Aardman Animation featuring the Tenth Doctor himself David Tennant?

Yar!

What!?

How dare yee utter such mutinous words! Walk the plank!

Collider reports that The Pirates! Band of Misfits has launched its own interactive site filled with enough booty to keep even the most scurvy of dogs occupied until its release on 27th April.

Log on and you’ll be able to read the captains log (a detailed production diary), drink in The Tavern (where you find all about the crew members you’ll be setting sail with), head over to Anne Bonny’s Memorial Theatre (and watch the latest trailers) and take part in the Pirate of the Year competition (which features a handful of games – all of which aren’t working just yet)

The Pirates! Band of Misfits stars Hugh Grant in his first animated role no less as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas.

With a rag-tag crew at his side (Martin Freeman, Brendan Gleeson, Russell Tovey, and Ashley Jensen), and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek) to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award.

It’s a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they battle a diabolical queen (Imelda Staunton) and team up with a haplessly smitten young scientist (David Tennant), but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!

The Pirates! Band of Misfits is released in cinemas on 27th April.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    I have read the Pirates series of books. They are great fun. Although I’m not an Aardman fan, I am looking forward to this film.
