Characters Who Surprised Us By Being Resurrected For Sequels

Admin 121112 Videos

We often hear that death is not the end — and that's especially true in movies. Characters are shot, blown up, and beheaded — but death can be easily reversed for a sequel. For proof, just check out these glorious returns from the unknown. But, be warned, spoilers lie ahead.

Ask a younger generation of movie buffs about character resurrection, and a lot of them will think of eight words:

"So tell me, what's become of my ship?"

As Captain Hector Barbossa, Geoffrey Rush doesn't just go from dead to living, but from evil to good as well. In Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, we learn that an Aztec treasure cursed him and his crew to walk the earth long past their deaths, with their true nature as undead corpses revealed by moonlight. He's finally released from the curse when missing coins are added to the stolen treasure — just in time for Johnny Depp, as Captain Jack Sparrow, to shoot him dead.

But in the Pirates universe, there's more than one way to beat the reaper. After Jack himself dies in the sequel, Dead Man's Chest, his crew goes to the shack of the mysterious Tia Dalma to hold a wake. She reveals that she knows an experienced guide who can sail them through the seas beyond the grave — and Barbossa walks down the stairs. Sure enough, he guides the crew to Davy Jones' Locker in At World's End and brings Jack back with him. Despite his early death, Barbossa ends up becoming the only primary character, besides Jack, to appear in every installment of the series — until he gets killed all over again in Dead Men Tell No Tales.
