The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is a series of highly popular adventure films produced by Walt Disney Pictures. Begun in 2003, our expectations for what pirate films should be were changed forever once we got our first glimpse at Captain Jack Sparrow.

The movies follow the swashbuckling adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow, portrayed by the legendary actor Johnny Depp. The franchise has become a global phenomenon, captivating audiences with its unique blend of action, humor, and fantastical storytelling.

Of course, much of this is thanks to the fabulous portrayal of Sparrow by the iconic Johnny Depp, but others, such as Bill Nighy as Davy Jones, also have lent their hand to the immortal seafaring series.

Five Pirates of the Caribbean movies have been released so far. The Curse of the Black Pearl debuted in 2003, followed by Dead Man’s Chest in 2006, and At World’s End in 2007 to round out the original trilogy.

As demand for more Depp remained high, On Stranger Tides, a new story featuring Ian McShane as the infamous real-life pirate, Blackbeard, would premier in 2011, and finally, Dead Men Tell No Tales in 2017. These films have grossed billions of dollars worldwide and have cemented Captain Jack Sparrow as one of the most iconic characters in cinematic history.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Captures Our Imaginations

Despite the prominent performance by Depp, the first film also included another memorable character. Directed by Gore Verbinski, Pirates of the Caribbean also introduced the world to Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley), Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), and Will Turner (Orlando Bloom).

Interestingly enough, a cut scene provided at the end of the last film saw Will Turner, doomed Captain of the Flying Dutchman, set free from his curse and reunited with his love Elizabeth. Upon waking in the middle of the night, an interesting callback to the popular villain, Davy Jones, takes place.

Of course, this opens the door for further story-telling from screenwriters and Disney as they move forward with Pirates. Although Depp is the franchise’s centerpiece, the magical world of cursed Aztec gold, undead swashbucklers, and high-tide magic also helped capture our imaginations. Not to mention an amazing original soundtrack by composer Klaus Badelt.

Because of the wide berth of seafaring lore, which includes stories of mermaids, sunken treasure, curses, and much more, there is an endless supply of imaginative direction for future projects that could continue to titillate our senses, much like the original films.

The End of Jack Sparrow

As you probably know, Disney, who owns both the film franchise and the ride that inspired the amazing Jerry Bruckheimer productions, had a falling out with famed actor Johnny Depp over claims of abuse by his ex-wife Amber Heard.

After the claims, Walt Disney Pictures famously fired Depp from his role as Jack Sparrow. Warner Brothers, where he portrayed Gellert Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts series, also chose to turn their back on Depp, ultimately recasting the wizarding role.

The Washington Post expose by Heard naming Johnny Depp in atrocious and disgusting abuse allegations eventually led to a countersuit filed by the once rum-loving Pirate, which ultimately was won by Depp.

However, the damage was done, as Disney and other studios chose to walk away from the iconic award-winning actor well before he had his literal day in court. During testimony in the defamation hearing, his working relationship with Disney was discussed, highlighted by Depp’s agreeance that he wouldn’t return to work for the studios, even for “$300 million and a million alpacas.”

Since then, fans have dug up any piece of information they can to shed light on the future of the Pirates franchise and how it pertains to a possible return for Johnny Depp.

Although all clues indicate that Jack Sparrow may never set sail again, that doesn’t mean that the franchise is dead, as some unknown sources, according to Inside the Magic, suggest that Depp could be open to a return, warranting a proper script.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean 6’

The idea of an upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean 6 installment has generated much excitement and speculation among fans. While there is no official release date yet, the film is said to possibly be in development, signaling that more adventures may come in this beloved franchise.

Also, according to Coming Soon, the screenplay for Pirates of the Caribbean 6 was written by Craig Mazin, known for his work on the critically acclaimed TV series Chernobyl (2019), along with Ted Elliott, one of the original screenwriters of the franchise. Despite claims that the script is too weird, according to Inside the Magic, a sixth Pirates movie is in development.

Despite the initial excitement surrounding the news of a future Pirates project, no official word has been leaked on just how Disney plans to move forward, although the following quote was provided:

“Good news arrived for fans as the creators officially confirmed that Pirates of the Caribbean 6 is in development. Pirates of the Caribbean has garnered commendable ratings, boasting a solid 8.1/10 on IMDb and an impressive 86% average audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes. This date (revealed later in this article) is an estimation based on the information we have at the time of this writing, as the filming for the Pirates of the Caribbean 6 has not yet commenced.”

Date Announcement for New ‘Pirates’ Film Project

Also reported by Coming Soon, in black and white, was a suspected release date for the next Pirates of the Caribbean installment: “Pirates of the Caribbean 6 is expected to arrive in mid or late 2025.” They also went on to explain that, like many Disney projects, fans could expect the film to first arrive in theatres, with a drop later to Disney+.

Although it’s hard to say if 2025 is a reasonable time frame, Disney could undoubtedly use the box office boost. Currently unseated as the kings of cinema by Universal Pictures, a new Pirates project featuring Depp could help alleviate some of the investment pressures Disney is currently experiencing in the movie business.

However, as the films, usually handled by producer Jerry Bruckheimer, are a big-budget option for Walt Disney Pictures, a surplus at the box office could only be guaranteed if Depp were to return. Interestingly enough, Coming Soon offered no insight into that possibility.

While fans eagerly anticipate the return of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, as his portrayal has been instrumental in the success of the series, it has also been reported that Margot Robbie will also star in the upcoming film, leading a new cast of characters.

This idea is expected to bring fresh ideas and breathe new life into the franchise while still capturing the spirit and charm that fans have come to love.

As mentioned by Inside the Magic, it should be noted that there is a lot of false information out there surrounding the return of Pirates of the Caribbean and Johnny Depp. One particular sequel, a fan-made poster, Pirates of the Caribbean: Demons of the Corsair, has gone viral and caused a lot of confusion for fans.

As the release of Pirates of the Caribbean 6 draws nearer, fans can expect more news and updates regarding the storyline, cast, and production. With the talented team behind the film, including producer Jerry Bruckheimer, there is no doubt that the sixth installment will deliver an exciting and memorable cinematic experience.

  1. No Johnny, No Pirates.

    • Disney has had some of the WORST TIMING on everything they touch. From firing Jonny Depp to screwing over hit actors like Scarlett Johansson out of her contract. To numerous actress and actors. I can’t blame anyone for not working with Disney for fear they will get screwed over at the end. Disney has a VERY bad habit of making remakes & doing 2 and 3rd films years later after the movie is no longer being watched. The Little Mermaid (1989 film)is a great example of that. They can’t come up with new ideas so they milk it with a The Little Mermaid 2 (2000) 11 yrs later. They will add a new ride in their parks 2011. I can go on & on about the bad timing. Walt & Roy Disney stayed out of anything Political knowing that it would hurt their company. But now Disney is all about Politics from TV show the VIEW. To the Ready Creek problems they are having. If Disney would have kept their mouth shut and stayed out of the Politics they would never be in this mess. Walt & Roy would be so pissed off at what’s going on with their company. They basically fired Roy Jr. for his ideas & what he was doing if read the history. Disney Cruise Line hired designers that Never Ever took a cruise before to design the Wish & it shows on how everything is arranged on the ship. Nothing makes sense. This is why Disney is Losing money & bleeding themselves dry. They need better people not friends to lead the company in the right direction. They need all New Staff & CEO with the right thought process & not about taking money for themselves or Disney will fail into bankruptcy and take the people who invested in their DVC, D23 clubs & anything Disney.

      • Roy Disney’s stepdaughter is the reason for some the problems @disney. She is a member of the alphabet crew and claims to be a guy. When Disney started having guy princesses, that was when they said that they didn’t need my money. But, like so many others no jd no potc

    • Million % agree!!!!!!!!

    • There IS NO POTC without Captain Jack Sparrow and the ONLY actor who could play that role is Johnny Depp. Without him, they’re facing yet another box office failure.

    • Agreed. No Depp, noo movie

    • Agree Completely 100%

  2. It’s definitely all Gore Verbinski’s fault who’s not making any sense at all when he directed 3 pirates movies. Especially Anjelica Teach who was never metioned in Pirates of the Caribbean stories who send Jack Sparrow himself up so far for telling lies and fighting people.

  3. No Johnny, I won’t be watching. Johnny Depps character IS THE MOVIE!!!!!

    • You couldn’t be more correct. Without Johnny Depp Disney is done

      • Will not be Pirates without Johnny Depp. It’s bad enough that they recast him in Fantastic Beasts. New actor was awful.

        • Whatever happened to innocent until proven quilts they didn’t wait to see how Johnny Depps trail went. They fired him. SO as far as i’m concerned no Johnny then no pirates of the Caribbean. I hope they lose the shirts off their back
          hey went ahead and fired him

      • Sorry without JD we will not be watching, it isn’t pirates of the Caribbean without him, Disney shot themselves in th foot with this

      • Pay 1 Billion compensation to Depp and make a worldwide apologize to show the world that Disney made a serious not only mental harm but damaged Depp reputations and apologies to the Depp world fan’s. Invite Depp and apologize in front of the audience. I will forgive Disney if you can do that.

    • No Johnny, no Captain. This next movie will bomb without him. I’m certainly not going to watch.!!!

      • NO JD No GO. Make a public apology to Depp. He deserves it .Eat crow or go in the hole. Disney was wrong .put on your Big Boy Pants and admit it

    • You’re so right Johnny Depp is the center piece of the whole franchise. I fell in love with the franchise and been a huge fan of priates of the Caribbean since, I was very disappointed when I heard that Depp was no longer a Part of the sixth film. I am a huge fan but if there is no Depp there will not be any money from my pocket going on the FILm or its merchandise.

    • No Johnny, you will never receive another another dollar from myself or anyone I know… Johnny Depp is Captain Jack Sparrow… N Pirates of the Caribbean… With out Johnny Depp, Disney has nothing… You jumped the fence way too quickly n burned yourself really bad… I hope you lose it all… Your selfish disrespectful n just plain rude… You didn’t even give him a chance… You cut your own nose off n now you’ve spited your own face… The one that made you billion’s you chose a filthy liar Heard over that made you nothing over the man that gave you everything… You deserve exactly what you gave him… We the people love Johnny Depp an always will…he is the man Captain Jack Sparrow… Unless Johnny Depp comes back you have nothing, I ever want too see again… You have destroyed Disney World n Disney Land… So know I will never purchase anything from you… EVER AGAIN!!

    • I agree with everyone what you did to Johnny Depp was un called for you Disney is movies why are you court cases that is none of your business people divorced all the time you don’t tell them no more movie for you keep your nose out of divorce. Get back to what you were meant to do. Make movies. And by the way no Johnny Depp no movie

  4. No more Disney for me. There is no pirates without Johnny Depp, period.

    • No more Disney for me or my son if they don’t bring Johnny Depp back. Johnny IS jack and jack is Johnny no Johnny no pirates I haven’t watched or allowed my son to watch or buy anything Disney or Warner brothers since they sacked Johnny Depp he said they them he was innocent and then had to prove it and still they refuse to admit they were wrong. The American people are supposed to believe in innocent until proven guilty so why did it change when Johnny was involved? Until Johnny is back there will be no pirates no Disney and no Warner brothers in our house

  5. I hate disney for what they did to Jonny depp he has been there for years but they still back stab him because amber heard decided to tell all these lies and they believed her over him if he doesn’t return to pirates of the caribbean I won’t blame Jonny for it after disney stabbed him in the back because of lies he is the heart and soul of pirates of the caribbean he is what holds that movie together and makes it amazing with out him the movie is never going to make a comeback on matter who plays captain jack sparw Jonny was made for that part of the movie and disney knows it that is why they tried to pay him to come back and play in it I always loved disney but after what they did I will never like them again they really messed up and they know it I will not watch the pirates of the caribbean 6 it just will never be the same with out him playing captain Jack sparw they messed up big time kicking him off disney Jonny was the best thing that happened to disney but they threw it all away because of some lies amber heard said they really messed up. I love Jonny depp and who ever likes amber heard then just remember you need some help she lies about everything disney should of got rid of her instead of the Jonny depp the best thing that happened to them and the heart and soul of pirates of the caribbean and I mean every single word I said. JONNY DEPP ROLLS❤.

    • What you just said, is what every Pirate / Johnny Depp fan is feeling! Disney should be ashamed of what they did to Johnny. Amber is a LIAR, and a very manipulative evil person. She thought she could ruin Johnny, but she found out that We all knew what a Wonderful, Kind-hearted man he is. Disney should have seen through the lies too but they chose to take the wrong side, therefore damaging the most Awesome Character and film franchise in history! All of which is perfected by Johnny Depp himself!
      The World wants The Only Captain Jack Sparrow, which is Johnny Depp, and without him, I will never go see another Disney movie again!!

  6. Johnny Depp IS “The Pirates of the Caribbean.”

    His great talent, a stupendous gift to Any production and production company, was irreverently Cast Aside because
    of Heard, who appears to be quite a skilled liar.
    The fact that her career wasn’t horribly derailed, as Johnny’s was is yet another example of how calismic a fall has occurred in good vs evil in the world today.
    NO JOHNNY DEPP, NO WATCHING ANYMORE
    “PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN.”. EVER. EVER.

  7. You can go back to mickey mouse and start over again. All Disney movie I will pirates them. F U Disney.

  8. Why even start talking about a move that doesn’t release till 2025. We are still in January 2024. Don’t get me wrong I love pirates but why get us all hyped up about a move that doesn’t come out for over a year?

    • NO, JOHNNY DEPP .NO MORE FOR ME. Disney movies will never again will have with ANYTHING AGAIN. Bye Bye to you better. Put on your life jackets your going down the toilet. And none cares. No

  9. Why does Disney insist on milking every franchise for every last penny at the expense of the story. I say leave PotC alone. The films we have are still enjoyable to go back and watch. Don’t ruin the franchise by continuing to try and make more. Plus, no one wants one without Depp in it.

    • Disney has turned into a joke. I won’t watch any or buy anything. You screwed Johnny over. Johnny is Captain Jack Sparrow and the Pirates of the Carribean don’t exist without him. Suck it up Disney. Admit you are wrong and beg him back.

  10. Sadly I’m not even the last bit interested in this film now.
    Depp is what makes these films

  11. No Johnny, no Pirates! I My family has agreed that we will not watch another one without the man who made the franchise.

  12. Doubtful it make money. Be a flop is more realistic.
    A lot of the old franchises are being a case of de ja vu by audiences. Fans wathed pirates for johhny depp.
    Margot robbie apart from the first suicide squad and barbie.
    I cant really name any movie i have heard of her in.
    And as i watch films.
    She cant be rhat good then.

  13. NO DEPP, NO MOVIE!!!!

    • Disappointed with Disney when they jumped to fire Johnny before the facts were released. Amber is a hot mess and uses men with money!! Disney has a bad reputation for being involved with all things not of goodness anymore. They know what I am saying. Clean up your act, apologize and bring Johnny back. Be what Walt designed Disney to be.

  14. Disney is a fire sale at this point. Better start hunting up all those alpacas. Johnny Depp could be responsible for single-handedly saving not only the Pirates franchise, but Disney motion pictures.
    And might I suggest at total housecleaning of Disney leadership and replace with a team dedicated to bringing back the Disney family values. Keep your politics to yourself and out of our movies. Or go bankrupt.

  15. No Johnny, no pirates!
    Disney should be ashamed of themselves!
    But Johnny is handling it like everything in his life. Good grace and charm. During these sparcevtimes audiences can make or break you, and we got Johnny’s back, beware Disney your skating on thin ice.

    • Whoever made the decision to fire Johnny, should be fired themselves. They made the biggest mistake ever. Johnny made you billions of dollars and you turned your back on him when he needed support. I will never go back to Disney world and that was one of our favorite places as my children grew up. There’s a lot of people that feel the same way. You screwed up Disney. Walt Disney would never have made a decision like that, he was loyal. It’s like turning your back on Mickey Mouse.

    • Agree Completely 100%

  16. No Johnny, no pirates!
    Disney should be ashamed of themselves!
    But Johnny is handling it like everything in his life. Good grace and charm. During these sparce times audiences can make or break you, and we got Johnny’s back, beware Disney your skating on thin ice.

  17. No Johnny! NO PIRATES! I definitely won’t be watching it without Johnny. They really did him wrong without due process of law. Shame on Disney. Let’s be honest here….they completely cut him off from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise when their multi-billion $ success was literally built on the back of such a talented actor. Disney will NEVER be able to replicate his character and acting style and it will flop at the box office without Johnny. If Disney is smart they better start lining up the Alpacas and dig deep in their pocketbooks because Johnny is worth it and they will reap the benefits of a box office success and a revitalization of the Pirates franchise worldwide. Save face Disney!

    • In my book Johnny Depp is the movie. Pirates of Caribbean. He is innocent and you crewed him over. You should know any time you don’t put the same actors in the movie it fells every time. We’ll congratulation you just doomed this movie big time unless he’s back you can count me out to watch it at a theater and don’t put him in for 5 mins and kill him off. Y OU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE A FAMILLY SHOW and I’ve seen you put out gorrey shows in my book you drop low. NO JOHNNY DEPP NO ME

  18. Whoever made the decision to fire Johnny, should be fired themselves. They made the biggest mistake ever. Johnny made you billions of dollars and you turned your back on him when he needed support. I will never go back to Disney world and that was one of our favorite places as my children grew up. There’s a lot of people that feel the same way. You screwed up Disney. Walt Disney would never have made a decision like that, he was loyal. It’s like turning your back on Mickey Mouse.

  19. NO, JOHNNY DEPP .NO MORE FOR ME. Disney movies will never again will have with ANYTHING AGAIN. Bye Bye to you better. Put on your life jackets your going down the toilet. And none cares. No

    • I have officially boycotted disney unless they apologize to jhonny depp. And as president of the national cowboy mounted shooting ass. Everybody as a member has to.

    He is the only reason Pirates succeeded from the start of the franchise. WE WANT JOHNNY DEPP!!!!

  24. This boat will sail again,

    We are not interested in
    any of the crap that was left in the sheets.

    Clean slate, call his manager …
    I believe his email was above…
    Thank you in advance.

  25. No Johnny, you will never receive another another dollar from myself or anyone I know… Johnny Depp is Captain Jack Sparrow… N Pirates of the Caribbean… With out Johnny Depp, Disney has nothing… You jumped the fence way too quickly n burned yourself really bad… I hope you lose it all… Your selfish disrespectful n just plain rude… You didn’t even give him a chance… You cut your own nose off n now you’ve spited your own face… The one that made you billion’s you chose a filthy liar Heard over that made you nothing over the man that gave you everything… You deserve exactly what you gave him… We the people love Johnny Depp an always will…he is the man Captain Jack Sparrow… Unless Johnny Depp comes back you have nothing, I ever want too see again… You have destroyed Disney World n Disney Land… So know I will never purchase anything from you… EVER AGAIN!!

  26. Disney I am here today to tell you that you have one thread of string to grab onto. If you don’t carefully handle your last thread, it will tear into shreds and you will find yourselves shriveled and weak. If you need Help holding things together, you may still be able to call Captain Jack Sparrow to wisk you away from the danger you are heading closer to by the day. Call Johnny Depp, for he is Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Jack Sparrow is Johnny Depp. If you decide to carry on without Johnny Depp/ Captain Jack Sparrow you will be drowning in more debt, loss and ruin. We will survive, though we really want Captain Jack Sparrow/Johnny Depp back in our Disney Movies, we will still survive. As will Johnny Depp. Take a chance Disney, every second you wait to decide if Captain Jack Sparrow lives on in Disney, Johnny Depp is moving in a new direction. He has choices to make that he needs to do now. Don’t keep Johnny Depp waiting, while the memories of Captain Jack dissipate into a pile of dust just like your Disney dynasty. I’m assuming you know how to reach Johnny Depp… he is your saving grace 🏴‍☠️

  27. If Johnny Depp isn’t in pirates 6 as Jack Sparrow. I will boycott all pirate movies and I’m sure a lot of others will too.

  28. Margot Robbie sucks, Johnny Depp Captain Jack Sparrow is what makes Pirates of the Caribbean. I won’t pay a penny to see Margot Robbie…What is wrong with you Disney!

  29. Its not going to be a Pirates of the Caribbean without JD. Just change the name because it will be a regular old pirate movie that FLOPS.

  30. I WILL NOT watch another Pirates movie without Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow, PERIOD!! I am so disgusted at what Disney has become. Walt must be turning in his grave, he would NEVER have allowed this nonsense! Depp IS Jack Sparrow, there is no substitute. And without his character, the movie would flop as well. So no Depp, no Priates! It really is that simple.

  31. You will fail like fantastic beast… If you won’t cast JD…. Mark my words Disney!
    I will watch and laugh….
