Pirates of the Caribbean is not only a popular Disney franchise but a commercially successful one. When Johnny Depp got fired from Disney, there were reports about a Reboot with a female lead, and Margot Robbie’s name came up to feature in it. However, things never really happened, and nothing substantial was reported. The Barbie star also responded negatively to the news. Now, an industry scooper has revealed that the project has not been wholly shelved! Scroll below for more!
The Disney franchise earned millions at the worldwide box office, especially because of Depp’s fantastic performance as Captain Jack Sparrow. There are five movies in the series; the first was released in 2003, with the last in 2017. Depp lost the franchise because of his controversial divorce and defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard.
A few days back, a fan-made Pirates of the Caribbean 6 trailer with Jenna Ortega joining Johnny Depp in the cast went viral. Now that Johnny has emerged as a winner in the trial against Amber, fans want him back in the iconic role and share their versions of the supposed movie’s poster and trailers. Industry insider Daniel Richtman has claimed that Disney is still working on a Pirates of the Caribbean film with a female lead.
The scooper has also claimed that The Bear star Ayo Edebiri is being eyed for a role named Anne in this female-led Pirates of the Caribbean. According to Richtman, Disney “wants a younger cast of pirates looking for a hidden treasure.”
Meanwhile, few are excited about the Pirates of the Caribbean reboot, but most reacted negatively to this scoop as they joined in unison and demanded that Johnny Depp return. Check out some of the reactions of the netizens on X.
