Another project that closes the doors to Johnny Depp. According to THR, Disney has completely blocked a possible return of the actor to Pirates of the Caribbean. If fans hoped to see him again in a cameo or a small role, they can already say goodbye to that idea. Jack Sparrow will not appear in any new installment of the franchise.

Like the fans, producer Jerry Bruckheimer was considering the possibility of having Depp in a new movie, but Disney rules it out. “Disney had already moved away from a future of Pirates with Depp long before the trial in the UK, even if the ties had not yet been formally severed,” writes said medium.

Pirates of the Caribbean 6 Release Date

Although we have known for a long time that the ‘reboot’ of Pirates of the Caribbean that the studio is preparing was going to go a very different path from the one marked so far, it was not so long ago that there was talk of the possibility of Depp’s return. In May 2020, the medium The Disinsider released a rumor stating that the sixth installment would leave the door open for the return of the mythical pirate. Now, that rumor is disproved.

Pirates of the Caribbean 6 Cast

The requests of the actor’s fans have been of no use, who started a movement on social networks so that the saga would have him again. “It’s simple If the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie doesn’t have Jack Sparrow, it doesn’t have Johnny Depp, I’m not going to see it,” wrote one user. Instead, we can enjoy on the big screen Margot Robbie, the actress who leads the cast of Pirates of the Caribbean 6.

It’s a further disappointment for Johnny Depp, who has also recently been removed from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 3. In this case, Warner Bros. clearly stated that it was withdrawing him from the project due to his legal problems and quickly turned to a replacement. Gellert Grindelwald will now be played by Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal).
