It’s Hollywood in Hawaii, as the Black Pearl arrives. That’s the ship featured in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films.
It docked at Kalaeloa Harbor early Sunday morning. State tourism leaders say it’s a shining symbol of good things to come, despite being in the tough economy.
The state tourism office’s phones have been ringing off the hook, as the Black Pearl cruises towards the islands.
State leaders say a lot of work went into getting the film here and the excitement of the ship is just the beginning.
Sky News Now got an exclusive look of the Black Pearl. Traveling at 10 miles per hour, its journey took it from the Bahamas to LA and then to Kalaeloa.
“It’s quite a global traverse if you will, for Hawaii to be the home berth for it is pretty exciting,” State Creative Industries Division chief Georja Skinner said.
The fourth installment of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, “On Stranger Tides” is set to start filming this summer on Oahu and Kauai. It’s expected to steer millions of dollars into the state’s economy.
