Hackers have apparently obtained a copy of the Pirate franchise.

Fox News explains:

Real-life pirates are holding Disney's most valuable pirate for ransom.

Digital hackers have reportedly gotten their mitts on a copy of Disney's new "Pirate of the Caribbean" film.

Deadline reports the hackers are demanding a lot of Bitcoin loot, or they will release the film online before its May 26 premiere date.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Disney will not pay the ransom and is working with the FBI.

A rep for Disney did not return Fox News' request for comment.

Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger said during a town hall meeting with ABC employees Monday that hackers claimed to being holding a Disney film ransom but did not say which one, the Hollywood Reporter reported.
