Our very first glimpse at what Sir Paul McCartney will look like in the newest installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean saga is here.

They've gone and thrown a hat on him, haven't they? What will they think of next?

Beatles legend McCartney is following the example of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, who of course played Jack Sparrow's dad in At World's End and On Stranger Tides.

Safe to say we have no idea what Macca's character brings to the table in the film, but Orlando Bloom recently revealed that the story will take inspiration from the original.

"For a lot of people, the first movie is their favourite and they wanted to bring the film back into line with that," he said. "So the narrative is similar. They didn't overload the special effects.

"When you're seeing some of these action set-pieces, they actually got filmed, people were actually there doing that, as it was in Pirates 1, 2, and 3, that I was involved in."
