Possibly the most spectacular exhibit at the Disney D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center on August 19, 2011, was this scale miniature of the Black Pearl pirate galleon from Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

How could you not be impressed by this 'miniature' of Captain Jack Sparrow's fabled ship which greeted visitors at the ground floor entrance of the Disney fan expo.
At 23-feet in length, the incredibly detailed and accurate ship model apparently takes six hours to properly rig all the cordage, spars and sails.

Comprised of pieces used in the original Black Pearl ship miniature from the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie installment, this version was reconstructed for the second and third movies. This model was used to help create the epic special effects in the incredibly popular film franchise starring Johnny Depp as the ship's captain.
