Henry was a part of the original PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN trilogy, too!
It seems a Pirate’s Life runs in the family!
Up until this point, Henry, Brenton Thwaites‘ character in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, has been known simply by his first name. However, a new featurette is confirming a fan theory that has been around since the actor’s casting was first announced. The video refers to the character as “Henry Turner,” aka the son of Will and Elizabeth Turner. D’awww!
Dead Man’s Chest hit theaters 11 years ago, but bowed out with a “9 years later” end credits scene in which Elizabeth meets Will again with their 8-year-old son in tow. So theoretically, it makes sense that the characters have been aged up a few years (except Johnny Depp, who may be immortal) and Henry is about 19 years old.
The featurette itself focuses on the scale of the production, from massive sets to wild action scenes, all of which have really wowed Thwaites and his co-star Kaya Scodelario.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales hits theaters on May 26, 2017.
