Johnny Depp became an instant hit with his portrayal of the drunk and notorious pirate Jack Sparrow (there should be a captain there somewhere). Commandeering the Black Pearl as well as the hearts of people, it was very ill received when he was thrown out of Disney’s production of Pirates of the Caribbean 6 for the alleged charges of abuse by ex-wife Amber Heard. As the official project continues without Johnny Depp, fans blame Disney for removing a good actor.
Johnny Depp went to Disneyland as Captain Jack Sparrow
It is worth noting that the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise was built from an adventure ride at Disneyland. Therefore, it wouldn’t be such an odd idea to dress up like your character and go there for a little chat. The Edward Scissorhands actor went in dressed like his on-screen character Captain Jack Sparrow, hoping to scare the tourists by pretending to be animatronic. The reaction of the fans…was unexpected.

In a video shared on Youtube, the clip shows an interview segment of Johnny Depp on The Graham Norton Show where the actor was asked about his habit of dressing up as Jack Sparrow while in his home!
The people’s reaction was disappointing for the actor to say the least. However, the interaction with fans and the love for his on-screen character made the people realize that Disney indeed lost a good one for public image.
Pirates of the Caribbean 6 under progress
It was on the sets of Pirates of the Caribbean 6 (not the official title) that the Fantastic Beasts actor was removed from production due to the recent controversial statements of ex-wife Amber Heard who alleged that Johnny Depp was abusive in nature. Speaking of Fantastic Beasts, the actor was also removed as the iconic villain Gellert Grindelwald from Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore (2022). Vowing to never return back to Disney for the role of Captain Jack Sparrow for an offer even as high as $300 million, the actor has seemed to keep his promise intact.
Jerry Bruckheimer, a long-time producer shared the news with much enthusiasm about the current status of the franchise
“I’m very excited, it’s going to be terrific. We’re just putting this together right now. We’re still working on the screenplay, but it’s very unique and has one of the original writers who wrote the first one, Ted Elliott; he’s writing it. He’s got a great command of the language, and he writes great characters and tells terrific stories.”
There has been no confirmation about whether the return of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow is happening or not. There are also rumors about Margot Robbie helming a movie as an all-female team of pirates currently in the works. The fans would be disappointed if their beloved pirate wouldn’t be in the film but they also will not be satisfied with just a cameo from the actor. It is now a game of wait-and-watch as to what and if Disney will do something to bring Johnny Depp back. or will the actor buckle down on his words for his fans?
