The only pirate adventure that asks the question: What's sharper, your sword or your wit?
Did You Know?
There used to be a department somewhere within Industrial Light and Magic that was tasked with writing screenplays for animated films based on Lucasfilm's intellectual property from other media. One such screenplay was a Monkey Island movie, entitled "The Curse of Monkey Island", likely loosely based on the game of the same name. In the big reorganization of Lucasfilm that occurred in the early 2000s, the department was killed and the MI movie (still in preproduction) with it. The script was reportedly written by Ted Elliott
, who would later use many of its ideas in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
(2003); ironic, given that the Monkey Island series was heavily influenced by the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' amusement park attraction in the first place. See more
There is an error when Guybrush is El Pollo Diablo. If you try to go to the Brimstone Beach Club using the normal route, depending on whether you kicked the Cabana Boy out, he will immediately notice and send you way. However, if you enter through the gate next to Palido then go around using the shortcut, you can show up at the club and the Cabana Boy doesn't react to you. In fact, you can even talk to him and have a normal conversation (even though dialogue options are omitted since Guybrush already completed everything he needed to do with the Cabana Boy.) See more
Captain's log: Guybrush Threepwood. Lost at sea for days now. I have no crew or navigational instruments. No provisions except a half-eaten corn-dog and, unless I find water soon, I'm surely done for. Only the hope of finding my love, Elaine, keeps me going.
After the credits, there is a little scene between a father and a son in "Big Whoop" amusement park, where the father tells the rumor about the builder of the park buried somewhere in the tunnels under the park. See more
Non-English language versions leave out the "A Pirate I Was Meant To Be" song section, as it relies strongly on rhyming of English words. See more
