Elizabeth has made her grand arrival.
While she may have been missing from all previous trailers for the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Keira Knightley made a quick appearance in a new international trailer for the fifth installment of the franchise.
The actress, who has famously portrayed Elizabeth Swann for three of the last four films, pops up in the Japanese-narrated teaser, if only for a second. In a blink, she appears in Victorian garb as she stares off into the distance, swiftly confirming all the bubbling rumors that she would be back.
However, the nature of her return is still unclear considering the footage is the first to be revealed and leaves much to the imagination.
Still, she’s not the only one officially reuniting with her longtime character. Orlando Bloom, who played Will Turner for three consecutive films, also showed up in a recent trailer, officially confirming that he will reprise his role for this newest installment.
As fans may recall, at the end of the third movie, he was forced to become the captain of the Flying Dutchman after his heart was cut out and placed in the Dead Man’s Chest.
Meanwhile, Pirates 5 hones in on Will and Elizabeth’s son, Henry, who sets out for answers about his father.
At the same time, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is busy fleeing from Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) and his deadly ghost sailors aiming to kill every pirate on the seas. To save his life, Sparrow is on a quest to find the Trident of Poseidon, bringing scientist Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario) and sailor Henry along for the bumpy ride.
Dead Men Tell No Tales, which will also include Geoffrey Rush, David Wenham and Kevin McNally, hits theaters May 29.

The 43-year-old actress was rummaging through things at her “mum’s house” Tuesday when she found a signed postcard from the ’80s heartthrob. Lowe’s note read, “Dear Kate, yes I will marry you. See you soon, Rob Lowe xxxxxx.” Beckinsale didn’t remember writing to the St. Elmo’s Fire star, but she may have reached out to him via a local publication. The postcard was “one of a set of four” from Just Seventeen, hailed as “Britain’s brightest weekly girl’s magazine.”
Beckinsale tagged the actor on Instagram, but as of Wednesday, Lowe hasn’t said anything.
The actress couldn’t help but laugh at her younger self—and give the 53-year-old actor a hard time for how he responded to her note. “EITHER I was a really tragic 13 year old with time on my hands,” she wrote in the caption, “OR Rob Lowe was all kinds of casual proposing marriage via a postcard of himself, signing his last name AND drawing a dick instead of using a stamp.”
Beckinsale is currently single, but she doesn’t have a shot with Lowe; the actor has been married to makeup artist Sheryl Berkoff since 1991, and the happy couple has two adult sons.
Don’t feel too sorry for Beckinsale—she has her fair share of admirers, too. Most notably, in 2012, One Direction‘s Niall Horan had the opportunity to meet his childhood crush and later tweeted that the Underworld: Blood Wars actress was a “lovely woman.” The following year, Horan professed his love, telling Spin 1038, “Oh my, God! Kate Beckinsale, marry me, please!”
Unlike Lowe, Beckinsale never responded to Horan’s proposal.
