Back in 2018, reports surfaced that Disney was set to reboot their blockbuster franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean. Since then, fans have been wondering what would that mean for Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow, well I can say don’t expect him to return.
According to insider Daniel Richtman, the studio is, in fact, going the reboot route, and are currently looking for a female lead, and one name at the top of Disney’s list to lead the reboot is Avengers: Endgame and Jumanji: The Next Level star Karen Gillan.
Another tidbit I hear is that the studio is also considering women of color for the role. Character and story details are being kept under wraps.
Though fan speculation will go wild now that Gillan’s name has been mentioned, there could be a possibility that the film will look to be centered on Redd, the popular female pirate featured in the Disney Parks attraction and is a meet-and-greet character.
Though Depp’s involvement has yet to be addressed by Disney, this is indeed a reboot, so it is unlikely he returns.
