Transcript[edit | edit source]
Sora: "Guys! Are you okay?"
Will Turner: "Sora... You're a welcome sight!"
The scene cuts to Sora, Donald and goofy standing with Will and Elizabeth on the Black Pearl.
Elizabeth Swann: "We've all been quite worried about you."
Sora looks down and sees two white crabs scuttling across the deck.
Sora: "Isn't that...?"
Elizabeth Swann: "Sora?"
Sora: "Where's Jack? And Tia Dalma?"
Elizabeth Swann: "I'm afraid you've missed a few things while you've been gone."
Will Turner: "Jack... He's...he's been taken by Cutler Beckett."
Elizabeth Swann: "Yes, and Beckett commands Davy Jones and the Flying Dutchman."
Will looks at the crabs still scuttling around the deck.
Will Turner: "But it didn't work."
Barbossa: "Aye, a fickle goddess Calypso be."
Goofy: "So what now?"
Barbossa: "Nothin'. Our final hope has failed us."
Everyone looks despondent.
Tia Dalma: "(whispering, in flashback) Use that key to free me, Sora, and you have my most certain promise— all the power on the sea you ever wish for be yours."
Sora: "(internally) So...Tia Dalma was Calypso. She's the one who was helping us. And you know what? I think...that she might just be able to help us again."
Sora: "(to Will and Elizabeth) You can't give up now. We can all fight, together. The sea belongs to everyone!"
Donald Duck: "I said that. Don't copy my expressions!"
Sora: "Huh? You did?"
Goofy: "Sometimes it just goes in one ear and right out the other."
Sora: "Wait... Really?"
Donald Duck: "Yes!"
Several characters looks up at the swirling clouds overhead.
Elizabeth Swann: "It's not over. There's still hope for us."
Elizabeth turns and addresses everyone aboard.
Elizabeth Swann: "You will listen to me. Listen! The Brethren will still be looking here to us, to the Black Pearl, to lead. And they will see free men and freedom! Our enemy will see the flash of our cannons and hear the ring of our swords, and they will see the courage of our hearts as we succeed and they fail. Gentlemen... Hoist the colors!"
Will Turner: "Hoist the colors!"
Sora: "Hoist the colors!"
The pirates cheer.
The scene then cuts to show both fleets sailing towards battle, with Davy Jones and the Flying Dutchman leading Beckett's fleet, and Elizabeth and the Black Pearl leading the pirates' fleet. The Pearl, the Dutchman and Sora's ship all sail into a giant maelstrom between the two fleets. The Pearl and The Dutchman line up across from eah other, line up their cannons, and fire.
Sora is looking on from the helm of his ship when Luxord appears through a Corridor of Darkness.
Sora: "I knew it was you!"
Luxord ignores Sora and looks out at the battle.
Luxord: "So that's the Flying Dutchman."
Sora: "The chest Jack told you about has the heart of Davy Jones in it. There's no way it's the chest that you're looking for!"
Luxord: "No one knows what's in the chest we're looking for. If it's a black box, then we are to collect it, simple as that."
Sora: "You don't know what's in it? Then why do you need it? How will you know you've found it?"
Luxord: "Got me. Regrettably, the higher-ups haven't deigned to tell us. But they did say the box contains "hope.""
Luxord: "That's all you'll get from me. Hmm, it's far too chaotic to find the box like this. Perhaps I'll remove that ship from the picture."
Luxord snaps his fingers, and the Kracken lifts the Black Pearl high out of the water.
Luxord: "Now this should afford me time to look."
Luoxrd disappears through a Corridor of Darkness.
Sora: "They're looking for hope?"
Donald Duck: "Hey!"
Goofy: "Will and the others need us!"
Sora: "Yeah, I know!"
The scene then transitions to gameplay.
