The captain of the Flying Dutchman has resurfaced. Disney unveiled a new promo for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which sees the return of Orlando Bloom’s William Turner after he was briefly glimpsed in an earlier trailer.

When last we caught up with Will in the third film, At World’s End, his heart had been carved out and placed in the Dead Man’s Chest, forcing him to succeed Davy Jones as captain of the Flying Dutchman. The phantom ship, meant to ferry dead souls at sea into the world beyond, only docks on land once every 10 years.

Elizabeth Swan (Keira Knightley) was last seen waiting on shore with their young son for Will’s return, and now he’s back at sea — with some crustacean acne of his very own. We also see him stretching out an arm to someone, who looks to be Brenton Thwaites’ character, Henry, recently confirmed by another teaser to be Henry Turner.

Elsewhere in the footage, we see more of Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow running from Captain Salazar (Javeir Bardem), a ghostly and vengeful figure looking to exterminate as many pirates as he can. That accounts for the film’s Game of Thrones-esque new mantra: “All pirates must die.”

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, directed by Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, also stars Geoffrey Rush, Kevin R. McNally, Golshifteh Farahani, Stephen Graham, and David Wenham. The film opens in theaters on May 26.
