Rate:

I know we've all heard it but I thought I'd use the facilities of Listal to accentuate the point.

Since Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was released, everyone with access to a column or blog has noted the very similar plot and character traits with the Star Wars original trilogy, notably Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. This is my take on this comparison.

Have fun.

This might be one of the best lists I've seen on here. I honestly never thought about the similarities; but clearly there are plenty. Very well done.
Posted: 7 years, 7 months ago at Nov 3 18:54
Will Turner could be Luke Skywalker also because their fathers both went bad (piracy/dark side of force).
Posted: 7 years, 7 months ago at Nov 3 18:58
Thanks NFG. Good spot.
Posted: 7 years, 7 months ago at Nov 3 19:35
This list has blinded me with its awesomeness.
Posted: 7 years, 7 months ago at Nov 3 21:41
Great list! The only one I think it's a bit stretched would be Barbossa/Boba Fett.
Posted: 7 years, 7 months ago at Nov 3 23:12
I thought it was hillarious that you used George Lucas as The Kraken/Sarlacc! Well done job! This list is great!
Posted: 7 years, 7 months ago at Nov 4 23:46
@leotak: I think its quite a good match. Seeing as Barbossa is the best character in Pirates and Boba Fett is one of the best in Star Wars. Both are semi-villains! Come ooooooonnnnnnn!!!!

The biggest stretch is definitely Anamaria.

Thanks for all the votes guys.
Posted: 7 years, 6 months ago at Dec 23 21:42
Sao Feng could be Jabba the Hutt - Both also lust over the main female character.


Great list. :D Lots of fun.

Wow, what an amazing list! I hadn't ever thought about those two stories like this before. Great job!
Posted: 7 years, 3 months ago at Mar 12 12:22

Thanks abhi. I can honestly say that this is probably the list that brings me the most joy when reading through.
Posted: 7 years, 3 months ago at Mar 23 1:13
Thanks buddy. I'm a massive Star Wars fan and I guess I know my stuff when it comes to Pirates. (Y)
Posted: 7 years, 2 months ago at Apr 17 11:28

What an incredible list!
This makes it seem like Pirates Of The Caribbean is ripping off everything Star Wars has! Now, thinking about it, it sorta is :P
Edit: 6 years, 9 months ago
Posted: 6 years, 9 months ago at Sep 5 20:14
Thanks guys. I should really re-title it "Actors with faces" because that kind of list usually gets more coverage, searches and votes.

Once again, I appreciate the feedback and am happy that you all enjoyed it. :)

Wow, and here I thought it took me long time to make a top 100 movies list, but I'm pretty sure the making of THIS list must have taken quite a lot more work. Long, detailed and definitely the funniest list I've seen up to date here on listal.
Posted: 6 years, 3 months ago at Mar 13 18:12
Cheers man. It means a lot.
Posted: 6 years, 3 months ago at Mar 21 4:14

It looks like some pictures you were using aren't there anymore (I'd want to know).

I thoroughly enjoyed this list! It obviously took a lot of research and you did such a great job of comparing these classic characters! Best list I've seen in a while!
