Those who are fans of Pirates of the Caribbean know that the character of Jack Sparrow is alive and kicking today thanks to their favorite actor and Hollywood legend, Johnny Depp. There is a massive fan base that is requesting, teasing, and pressuring Disney to make his return as Jack Sparrow in the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Earlier, it was announced that Disney planned to work on a female-centric soft-reboot of Pirates 6. The film was set to star Australian actress Margot Robbie, but the actress confirmed that the project was dead in the water at Disney in an interview recently.
However, the reasons why the actor was axed from the role are unknown, but there was a rumor that his infamous defamation case trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard, as well as his rude behavior toward crew members and being always drunk on set, led Disney to take action.
Disney Should Bring Back Johnny Depp As Captain Jack Sparrow, Fans Urge
There is no doubt that Hollywood iconic actor Johnny Depp has played this role since Pirates of the Caribbean 2003, and his die-hard fans cannot imagine the Pirates film franchise without him playing the role until Jack Sparrow’s character is alive in the story. Therefore, fans of Depp are urging Disney to bring him back as Jack Sparrow in the next Pirates movie to at least give him a chance to play the character one final time.
A fan named Farouq Yahaya tweeted recently to express his feelings about his favorite actor Depp, which reads,
“Johnny Depp was created for that Jack Sparrow role. Nobody can act it better.”

No one can cos if u watch the making of all the sequels from 1-8,u will see these unique acting that no character has at all in some movies. Johnny depp developed the character himself to his taste to the way he can’t act it best so there no one again that can act Jack Sparrow

And jack sparrow wasn’t even the intended main character of POTC,the story was originally about Will and Elizabeth. Johnny brought life to the character and stole the show

I think what you mean is that Johnny created the Jack Sparrow character for everyone to enjoy💕 and no one can do the role like he can, because he created it as an extension of himself! Remarkable🌷

In an interview with THR a few weeks ago, Pirates movie producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that he wanted Depp to star in a possible sixth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, despite Depp being the least likely choice. Of course, the most exciting part of this will be to see if Disney will fulfill the fans’ wish of bringing back Johny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow if they do.
What’s The Reason For Disney Rescinding Johnny Depp’s Contract And Not Casting Him Anytime Soon?
Many fans have wondered what the future holds for the beloved Pirates franchise after Disney released two different scripts, both of which reportedly do not feature Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. However, Margot Robbie claimed in an interview that Disney’s script based on female-centric soft-reboot of Pirates 6 will not going to be in action.
There are reports indicated that even before Depp’s defamation trial with Amber Heard took place, the company had turned its back on him. Although Depp’s court proceedings concluded several months ago, and he won the infamous trial against his ex-wife, Disney and all major Hollywood studios are not planning to work with him soon.
Despite Depp’s defamation trial, he was reportedly accused and criticized by Disney executives for allegedly displaying ‘drunkard rage’ towards them. However, Disney’s backing off of its plans to cast Depp in Pirates 6 isn’t official, and its reasons aren’t known now.
