When Traveller's Tales stumbled upon the idea of turning famous film series' such as Star Wars into LEGO games, little did they know just how popular and big they would be. It seems every six or so months a new LEGO game is coming out now, but as gamers we seem to not be able to get enough of them. They are perfect to play with the kids or a partner, and are genuinely funny for kids and adults alike. The fact the movie studios are allowing their famous brands to be parodied in such a way is a credit to them and they are reaping the rewards with the games raising the profile of those franchises even further and introducing a new generation to them. It's no surprise that the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean game continues this tradition.
In the grand scheme of things, when you compare Pirates of the Caribbean to something like Star Wars or Indiana Jones, it does not compare. It's only been around in the 2000's and whilst popular, would not be written into pop culture folk lore as much as Star Wars has been, so this was a risk. However, it's a risk that has paid off with LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean proving that the formula works for even recent film franchises.
