Visitors to Disneyland's Pirates of the Caribbean ride were in for a treat on Wednesday when the movie's star Johnny Depp made a surprise appearance.

Depp, who plays the iconic character Jack Sparrow in the franchise, appeared in full Sparrow regalia and recounted lines from the movies and thrust his sword at onlookers.

It's a nice bit of marketing from the studio ahead of the release of the fifth film, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which releases on May 26.

The flick sees Jack fleeing from Salazar (Javier Bardem) and his deadly ghost sailors who have escaped from Devil's Triangle.

The film also stars Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Thwaites.
