There used to be a department somewhere within Industrial Light and Magic that was tasked with writing screenplays for animated films based on Lucasfilm's intellectual property from other media. One such screenplay was a Monkey Island movie, entitled "The Curse of Monkey Island", likely loosely based on the game of the same name. In the big reorganization of Lucasfilm that occurred in the early 2000s, the department was killed and the MI movie (still in preproduction) with it. The script was reportedly written by Ted Elliott, who would later use many of its ideas in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (2003); ironic, given that the Monkey Island series was heavily influenced by the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' amusement park attraction in the first place.

After the credits, there is a little scene between a father and a son in "Big Whoop" amusement park, where the father tells the rumor about the builder of the park buried somewhere in the tunnels under the park.
