The new episodes of the movie Pirates of the Caribbean is promoted online in partnership with Google Earth. Basically they have created a map of a fictional island in the Caribbean, on which users can navigate and discover the movie related content. I must say I didn’t spend much time browsing the island… maybe because I didn’t find it very interesting… maybe because it appears to simply be a sort of external (unusual) menu to navigate the movie’s content (trailer, downloads etc…).
Disney has signed an agreement with Lycos to promote the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean” through Europe (which in Italy becomes “The curse of the first moon”, boh!). Nine countries will be involved in the campaign that will take advantage of a special web site in nine languages. Disney is trying to take advantage of the very well established Lycos communities. Users might play the characters online by challenging other people throughout Europe in the Fight Club (that will be hosted on Lycos web site). There will also be a chat room and a competition to win the movie gadgets.
