The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists! (known as The Pirates! Band of Misfits in Australia, New Zealand, and North America) is a British-American 3D stop-motion animated adventure comedy film that was produced by Aardman Animations. It was released theatrically by Sony Pictures Animation on 28 March 2012 in the United Kingdom and on 27 April 2012 in the United States. A scene shown in the preview trailer was revised in the final film to avoid controversy.


International censorship[]

  • In an original trailer, the pirate captain lands on a ship demanding gold, the shipmates say that they don't have gold and that it's a "leper boat", his arm falls off and he says "See?", in the finished movie the mention of a "leper boat" was changed to a "plague boat" and he now says he would give his right arm for some gold, or his left, changing the joke (due to being potentially offensive to those affected by leprosy).[1]

Where to find it uncensored[]
