Posted Thu Jul 14, 2011 at 11:55 AM PDT by

Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow will set sail to Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, and a Blu-ray 4-Film Collection in October!

As previously reported, Disney/Buena Vista will be releasing 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' (Blu-ray/DVD) and DVD/Blu-ray (DVD packaging) combo packs each with a suggested list price of $39.99, which will hit stores on October 18.

Also available will be a 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides - 3D' combo pack priced at $49.99.

From Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer comes all the fun, epic adventure and humor that ignited the original. Johnny Depp returns as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. A tale of truth, betrayal, youth, demise — and mermaids! When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penélope Cruz), he’s not sure if it’s love or if she’s a ruthless con artist using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. Forced aboard the ship of the most feared pirate ever, Jack doesn’t know who to fear more —Blackbeard (Ian McShane) or the woman from his past. Directed by Rob Marshall, it’s filled with eye-popping battle scenes, mystery and all-out wit.

The Blu-rays will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 (48kHz/24-bit) soundtrack, and supplements will include: Bloopers of the Caribbean, Audio Commentary by director Rob Marshall, Disney Second Screen, and LEGO Animated Shorts: Captain Jack’s Brick Tales.

The Blu-ray 3D combo pack will add: Legends of On Stranger Tides, In Search of the Fountain, Last Sail/First Voyage, Under the Scene: Bringing Mermaids to Life, and Deleted and Extended Scenes with Intros by director Rob Marshall.

Finally, there will be a mega 15-disc combo pack set containing all four films in the franchise housed inside collectible packaging for $169.99.
