If your invite to this movie premiere has been lost in the mail — mine was, apparently — use the Web:

MSN Video will broadcast live the world premiere of Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” on Saturday, June 24, from 7-8:30 p.m. PDT to a worldwide audience on MSN Video at https://movies.msn.com/movies/pirates_webcast. Pirates of the Caribbean, the popular Disney theme park attraction that inspired the movie, is once again brought to the big screen in Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest.” In a unique twist, the movie has now inspired the attraction, which will welcome new characters and elements — including the crafty Captain Jack Sparrow — from the blockbuster entertainment franchise as part of a spectacular, star-studded movie premiere. The attraction officially re-opens to guests June 26 at Disneyland and July 7 in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Florida.

The webcast will be hosted by the MSN “Dish Diva” Taylor Johnson along with a Disneyland historian and Disney Imagineer who will go live at remote locations along the red carpet at the premiere. The 90-minute webcast will include interviews from the A-list celebrities on the red carpet along with information about the fun and exciting history of Disney’s beloved attraction that inspired the movies.

“We’re thrilled to give our worldwide audience exclusive live access to the premiere event for one of this year’s most highly anticipated films,” said Rob Bennett, general manager of Entertainment and Video Services for MSN. “Our rich catalog of unique video content from leading producers like Disney is what makes MSN the best destination for online entertainment.”

Sounds like it might be fun.
