Recently, we showed our readers an exclusive look at Jack Black, reimagined as different Disney Princesses by artificial intelligence. As the creative world struggles with the thought of computer-based technology putting artists out of work, users have once again put AI to the test, reimagining the great Johnny Depp as some of your favorite Disney characters.
The Johnny Depp We Remember
Most news surrounding the once Pirates of the Caribbean front-man surrounds his unlikely return to Disney as Captain Jack Sparrow. Famously, Depp was released by Disney and Warner Bros after nasty accusations came to light via his ex-wife Amber Heard in an expose the Aquaman actress released after their divorce. Things became tough for the Hollywood Vampires guitarist, ultimately leading up to a very public and dramatic court proceeding against Amber Heard that would captivate the world.
Since the infamous case with Amber Heard, Depp has mostly kept to himself, outside of a few public appearances with his all-star band, the Hollywood Vampires, and a few news worthy stories regarding his health. There has been constant speculation on whether Johnny Depp will or won’t return to Pirates of the Caribbean as Jack Sparrow one day. Outside of speculation, he’s been rather seclusive.
The Edward Scissorhands star has seen his name mentioned in consideration for future Disney projects involving Pirates, as well as rejoining famed director Tim Burton for a live-action version of The Nightmare Before Christmas. However, Johnny Depp has not publicly made any former affirmation towards a return to either. Both are probably false and unlikely.
As the court case against Amber Heard is now over, finalized in the eyes of the public by the Netflix docuseries Depp V. Heard, Depp’s film future remains in question. The secluded ex-boyfriend of Kate Moss has done little to indicate a return to film anytime in the future, instead focusing on his health and music.
That doesn’t mean that Johnny Depp isn’t still a large grab for the media. Just about anything published with the Academy Award-winning star’s name performs well enough to ensure the once-Willy Wonka stays in the eyes of the public.
The Depp We Need Thanks to AI
Although Depp has been quiet, recent images have surfaced that show the actor in a brand-new light, reimagined to fit right back in at Disney. That’s right, we’re talking about another artificial intelligence project that features the Fantastic Beasts star as various Disney personalities, and it is an internet gold-mine!
Website Mashable.com has recreated the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow actor as various members of Disney royalty. If you don’t like the idea of Rachel Zegler playing Snow White in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake, no worries, Johnny Depp has the role covered.
Better yet, as Disney is on a roll with their live-action remakes, it would seem that Pixar Princess Merida should be on deck. The Finding Neverland star makes for a perfect Scottish Princess, doesn’t he?
Of course, if Disney wanted to do one last remake of other princesses, look no further than Elsa from Frozen. Or Depp could reprise the role of Belle or Rapunzel even!
We completely understand that the last thing you thought you’d see today was Johnny Depp, reimagined by AI as various Disney Princesses. To be honest, we didn’t think we’d see it either. But if we have to see it, so do you! Despite the notable concerns regarding artificial intelligence in Hollywood, voiced by popular creatives like Tim Burton, it’s nice to see a different, light-hearted use for the program.
