Isla de Pelegostos or simply Pelegostos is an island in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.

Background

Geography

Isla de Pelegostos features a tropical rainforest consiting of ravines, mountain ranges, and beaches. The natives living there is the Pelegostos Tribe which used body paint and fearsome masks to camouflage in their environment to capture unwanted visitors who arrive on the island. The tribe also built a village high up on one of the flat tops of a mountain peak, connected by rope bridges. In addition to this, the tribe also built huts which protect themselves from storms. It is also said that prisoners are held in cages made from bones the tribe deemed unworthy to survivors, hanging from deep ravines.

Appearances

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Bootstrap Bill Turner, acting as Davy Jones' messenger, delivers the Black Spot to Captain Jack Sparrow, a mark indicating that his blood debt to Jones is due. To avoid the monstrous Kraken that is hunting him, Jack commands the crew of the Black Pearl to land as fast as possible. They arrive on Pelegostos, a typical Caribbean island with sandy beaches and lush, mountainous jungles. But it is hardly the paradise it appears, as it is inhabited by a vicious cannibal tribe that captures the Pearl's crew and kills many of its men. They believe Jack Sparrow is a god in human form and intend to eat him to "release him from his fleshy prison". Will Turner arrives and helps them escape.

Jack seeks out Tia Dalma, an obeah woman, for help. Dalma lives in a swampy bayou on the Pantano River, located on the island's other side. Mysterious inhabitants live in shacks along the river banks. The island's cannibals avoid this area, most likely fearing Tia Dalma, who, unknown to Jack and the crew, is actually the sea goddess, Calypso, trapped in human form.

In a post-credits scene, the Prison Dog is temporarily crowned as the chief of the Pelegostos, but during the events of At World's End, the dog is revealed to have survived.

Printed material

In the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales novelization by Elizabeth Rudnick, it is said that Pelegostos would be recapped by Jack Sparrow recapped with his crew to pay tribute to Isla de Pelegostos.

Trivia

  • According to the film's writers in the Dead Man's Chest DVD commentary, Pelegostos is the same island Jack told Royal Navy Marines, Mullroy and Murtogg about in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. He tells them, "and then they made me their chief . . ." before being interrupted by Elizabeth Swann falling off the cliff into the harbor. It is open to conjecture whether or not the cannibals that call the island home recognized Jack when he was again made their chief in Dead Man's Chest.
  • The relevant scenes were actually filmed on the lush, tropical island of Dominica.
