The latest instalment to the Disney Pirates franchise has reportedly been commandeered and will be released in pieces if a ransom of bitcoins isn’t paid, as was reported by The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline.
The big question is will Disney executives risk walking the plank for it? (Yep this short article is going to be full of pirate puns!)
The act of piracy was reported earlier this week. Hackers currently hold the title and are requesting a huge sum of bit coins or else it will be down to Davy Jones’s’ “Putlocker” for the film!
Disney is currently denying the hackers demands and is refusing to pay said ransom.
The film is due to start screening worldwide on the 25th of May.
