Are you kidding me?! lol, do you really think that the harp is necessary for a movie that is epic like Pirate's 3?
Zimmer probably does not use harp in his scores because he does not like harp, or does not fit with his style.
Zimmer uses a lot of drums, very little piano, very,very little trumpet, he uses male choir a lot; and a lot of strings like in Invincible. Why? Because that is Zimmer's style of writing music. At least he is consistant!
