Not Merlin, but you get the idea.

Sea Island Carriage Co. has recently signed on a new and soon-to-be-famous team member: Nine-year-old Merlin.

Merlin is, of course, a horse and was last owned by Disney where he was used for a variety of public interactions. Most recently he was filmed in Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides.

The Island Packet has a solid rundown on Merlin; read it here.

The movie is due out on May 20.
