Is Johnny Depp Back as Jack Sparrow? Fans Spot 'Johnny Depp' Dressed Up as Iconic Pirates of the Caribbean Character at Disneyland

Johnny Depp is a famous star known to many or all. His appearance in movies like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and the first two movies of the Fantastic Beasts franchise among many has been well-loved by fans worldwide. However, what made the actor stand out was his role in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise as Captain Jack Sparrow.

But fate had other plans when a defamation case for alleged domestic abuse by Amber Heard against the popular star had negative effects on his well-made career. Disney distanced itself from the Dark Shadows actor just four days after the publishing of Heard’s article, cutting ties with him to save their name.

After the Depp v. Heard trial, fans were almost desperate to see The Best Actor winner return as Captain Jack Sparrow in a sequel to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. However, when the attorney, Ben Rottenborn, had asked him, “If Disney came to you with $300 million and a million alpacas, nothing on this earth would get you to go back and work with Disney on a ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ film, correct?” Johnny replied, “That is true.

But the fans were convinced otherwise when Johnny Depp surprised Disneyland park-goers on a Wednesday when he boarded the Pirates of the Caribbean ship as his character Jack Sparrow.

The visitors at the park were treated to the actor reading lines from the franchise while aboard the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Anaheim, California, theme park. By virtue of some people getting the scene on camera, the internet was granted by video of Depp getting into the character again.

How the allegations affected the career of Johnny Depp?

While the defamatory case ended in Johnny Depp’s favor, the publicity he received was not exactly the most ideal. Depp was labeled a “wife-beater” despite his denial, which is a name stuck to him. Till now, Depp’s fans and Heard’s fans are often in clashes over the incidents that led to the case.

However, the damage was already done when Johnny Depp got his name involved in the controversy. Disney stripped him of his role for Pirates of the Caribbean 6 which would be released soon. If that wasn’t enough, the Murder on the Orient Express actor was asked to step down from his role as the antagonist Gellert Grindelwald in the third film of the Fantastic Beasts franchise.

Despite it all, the actor’s presence in the films was a great influence as to why they did big at the box office. Hence it wouldn’t be a surprise if the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie does not have promising results, like Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.
