Pirates of the Caribbean 6 is currently in development at Disney. But fans of the franchise who are eagerly waiting for the new movie expect a release date sooner or later, and how will the story take off? It seems that the sequel film is being produced; the spin-off film has been confirmed and is led by a female. Let’s find out more about the future Pirates of the Caribbean movies and how they will wow us!
The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is a household name; almost everyone knows it because of its insane success at the box office. When Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl was first released, its massive success was surprising and entirely unexpected considering how the 2003 movie would be a flop, but it proved to be the opposite. Since then, the franchise has remained popular and has a huge fandom. The franchise has been continuously proving its global mass appeal, to which Johnny Depp earned an Oscar nomination for his role as Jack Sparrow.
Is a reboot of the movie on the horizon?
Although several years have passed, Pirates of the Caribbean 6 is still in the development stage, with its release still unknown in the distant future. As for the reboot movie, it is also still in the early development phases.
Pirates Of The Caribbean 6 Release Date
The release date for The Pirates of Caribbean 6 has not been announced yet. However, it is said to be on the distant horizon, and according to Disney, it is still in the early development stages.
However, Bruckheimer hinted that the script would be completed soon; the project may have been scheduled for filming before the COVID-19 pandemic abruptly halted production plans. With no official information of a possible release date nor a confirmation on the fallout of the pandemic, it’s unthinkable to know precisely when the movie will get its initial release. Still, if we’re lucky, the movie might release in 2023 at the earliest.
Will Johnny Deep Return as Captain Jack Sparrow?
According to speculations, the most frequent question about Johnny Depp and his infamous role as Jack Sparrow, is he coming back? And to no avail, Johnny Depp’s role in the Pirates of The Caribbean 6 remains unanswered.
Johnny Depp was stripped off from his role as Captain Jack Sparrow after the op-ed launched by her ex-wife Amber Heard. The future of him returning as Captain Sparrow is uncertain as of now but it’s somewhat clear that Depp will not be returning.
During his ongoing defamation trial, he stated in the court that he would not return to the franchise even if he was offered $300 million and a million Alpacas.
In a recent interview with Bruckheimer, he keeps the door open, hoping that the actor would return. However, for now let’s wait and hope for the return of Captain Jack Sparrow in the upcoming movie.
