Feb. 6 (UPI) -- Johnny Depp is back as shifty pirate Jack Sparrow in the latest trailer for Disney's upcoming high seas epic, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

The clip released Sunday during Super Bowl LI, follows a new antagonist, the undead Capt. Salazar (Javier Bardem), as he leads a zombie army in search of Sparrow.

As ships fall to Salazar's ghostly boat, including one helmed by returning series regular Capt. Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), a muddy Sparrow appears at the end and raises a bottle before proclaiming "a pirate's life."

The trailer also includes a small glimpse at a returning Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), now covered in barnacles following his death at the end of the third film, At World's End.

"The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Capt. Jack feeling the winds of ill fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Capt. Salazar (Bardem), escape from the Devil's Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea -- notably Jack," reads the synopsis.

"Jack's only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Capt. Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced," it continues.

Directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales arrives in theaters May 26.
