Pirates of the Barbary Coast is back with a fresh new look, and it’s not just the underwater adventure.
The upcoming film will be uncut in the United States and Canada and released in the U.K. as well.
The film, which was originally scheduled for release on Dec. 11, 2017, is being released in U.S. theaters on Dec 1, 2018, with the U:S.
version due to hit theaters on December 1, 2019.
The U.N. has previously voiced concern over the uncensification of the film, but Disney has remained quiet on the issue.
“We are exploring all options to make sure the U,S., and Canada experience Pirates of Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl a truly uncensorious experience for all our guests,” a Disney representative told TechRadars.
“We are excited to share this exciting new chapter with our guests and audiences worldwide.”
The film’s director, Bryan Singer, said in a statement to TechRadaria that the decision to include uncensorable scenes in the film was made in consultation with the International Film Board and the UNAIDS.
“With the help of our friends at the International Union of Film Critics, I am pleased to finally reveal this story of piracy and love in a world without borders,” Singer said.
“Pirates has become a cultural phenomenon that has given us a platform to speak out about the injustice that has been committed by some of the world’s most heinous criminals.”
The UNAIDs says it was also “encouraged” to see the movie receive a worldwide release.
“While we are not thrilled about the censorship, we believe it is important to let people see the film for what it is, not what it wants to be,” UNAID spokesman Peter Knaus said.
“The world of pirates is a fascinating one and, in many ways, it has become the story of love and freedom,” he added.
