Disney Replaces Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow… with a Woman?

That’s it, folks; Johnny Depp is no longer Captain Jack Sparrow. Pirates of the Caribbean franchise producer Jerry Bruckheimer confirms Depp’s official replacement.

Following the bombshells of ex-wife Amber Heard alleging that legendary actor Johnny Depp (Sweeney Todd, Edward Scissorhands) physically assaulted the Aquaman (2018) actress numerous times throughout their rocky marriage resulted in Hollywood blacklisting Depp.

Virtually overnight, Johhny Depp became the actual Public Enemies (2009), losing all credibility for his Willy Wonka (2005) and Ed Wood (1994) work. The Walt Disney Company reportedly turned its back on their beloved Captain Jack Sparrow before Johnny Depp could publicly defend his name. Heard’s Op-Ed with The Sun also cost Depp his role in The Fantastic Beasts franchise as Gellert Grindelwald to Mads Mikkelsen.

Reports circulated that Depp would not return for a rumored Pirates of the Caribbean 6. Though the Mouse House still uses Johnny Depp’s likeness for new Jack Sparrow merchandise, as well as features the man in their famous Pirates of the Caribbean attractions at Disney Parks, Disney has officially dumped Depp forever:

While speaking with The Sunday Times, Bruckheimer confirmed that they’re actively working on two Pirates 6 scripts; one with Margot Robbie and one without. When asked if Captain Jack Sparrow would return, Bruckheimer responded:

Pirates franchise creator Jerry Bruckheimer, who’s been with Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack character since the beginning, just confirmed that “they are developing a script” for Margot Robbie (Wolf of Wall Street, Birds of Prey).

There’s no guessing here; Disney is NOT bringing back Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow.

In the wake of the revolutionary defamation hearings between Mr. Depp and Ms. Heard in Fairfax, Virginia, Johnny Depp revealed how deep Disney’s knife cut him concerning Pirates of the Caribbean, publicly stating that he’d never return to the role.

Johnny Depp also stated during court how Disney continues to sell merchandise with his Jack Sparrow likeness while turning their backs on the actor:

“They didn’t remove my character from the rides. They didn’t stop selling dolls of Captain Jack Sparrow. They didn’t stop selling anything. They just didn’t want there to be something trailing behind me that they’d find.”

While it’s not confirmed how Margot Robbie will reboot the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, it’s clear that she’s the new Jack Sparrow-like figure while not inherently taking over the role entirely.

Or, Disney may even make Jack Sparrow a female in a retcon of the first five films starring Orlando Bloom (William Turner), Keira Knightley (Elizabeth Swan), Geoffrey Rush (Captain Hector Barbosa), Jack Davenport (James Norrington), Kevin McNally (Joshamee Gibbs), Mackenzie Crook (Ragetti), Lee Arenberg (Pintel), and Naomie Harris (Tia Dalma).

News of Johnny Depp being replaced as the iconic Jack Sparrow has broken fans:

no johnny depp, no watching.

Another fan wrote:

Only way this works is if they bring back Johnny Depp.

One fan writes:

Yeah, because that’s not gonna backfire at all.

Did they really have to announce this during Depp’s trial?

News and rumors of Margot Robbie taking over the Pirates franchise have been floating around for over two years, but having Jerry Bruckheimer state that Depp is officially out of the picture is the final nail in the coffin.

Do you think Johnny Depp should remain Jack Sparrow? Let us know in the comments below!


  • The only one that desereves to be cancelled more than Depp is Disney itself for what it threatened to do to the people of Florida. Thankfully Gov. DeSantis put that WOKE corporation in its place!

  • Johnny Depp should continue as Captain Jack Sparrow. He should have been given the chance to defend himself from the beginning and should at least have waited until after the trial before replacing him. As they did not do that, Disney needs to stop using his likeness in promoting the franchise and merchandise.

    Disney is being run by idiots- Jack Sparrow a woman? Stupid.

  • Glad to see that liberal POS get what he has coming to him.it won’t take much of a woman to replace that lil prancing idiot. To make things even better Disney will lose a shit load of money on this POS movie.

  • It makes no difference. I’m not a Botanist.

  • Geronimo Antonio Schmidt

    Johnny Depp is Jack Sparrow. This is not a character that can be easily replaced by either a woman or even another wacky character. It is hard enough for most fans to see the many actors to play James Bond (Bond is Sean Connery , and I am will to accept Daniel Craig as the masculinity symbol that is Bond, all the other pretty faces were lacking)
    Try something new instead…

  • Without Johnny – you might as well stop making them. They will be a big FLOP AND MOST PEOPLE WILL NOT

  • Just last week I was thinking time to buy Disney. The stock could not sink any lower before common sense prevails. Or, could it?

  • No Thank You. While I have purchased two sets of every Jack Sparrow aka Johnny Depp, I shall never purchased anything if they replace his image on merchandise! Mr. Depp made the role his and fans adore watching film after film, what happen to the old rule of quote INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY?

  • Everybody loves Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow!! No one else can “ ever” take his place!! He or she would only be a joke!! Nobody would even go and watch the show!! Disney would lose out..
