Pirates Of The Caribbean and Johnny Depp fans are demanding that he be included in the upcoming ‘all-female’ Margot Robbie-lead movie.
I was a bit surprised by the news that Margot Robbie was going to be re-teaming with Birds of Prey’s writer, Christina Hodson on a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
This movie is going to be an ‘all-female’ version of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, but it’s rumoured that it won’t be tied to the previous films or the upcoming spin-off.
It’s just another movie which is based on the Disneyland theme park ride.
Honestly, I love Robbie and I think Hodson is a really talented writer, so this film might end up being great.
However, there doesn’t really seem to be any real reason to tie it to the popular theme park ride other than having it be loosely connected to the previous movies.
So, all this means that Johnny Depp won’t be turning up as Jack Sparrow in the movie, and fans are pretty pissed off with Disney for taking this decision.
Many of them took to Twitter to demand that Disney have Depp play Sparrow in the Robbie Pirates movie.
Johnny Depp fans want Jack Sparrow to be in Margot Robbie’s new Pirates of the Caribbean movie
Very happy for Margot Robbie on landing the Pirates of the Caribbean movie! She’s gonna kill it!
But can we agree that Johnny Depp should still play Jack Sparrow because his lying ass ex wife fabricated stories about being abused and almost ruined his life?

Before Twitter spins it as people being against the new Pirates of the Caribbean because they “hate women” or something… no.
Johnny Depp is a domestic violence victim and lost Jack Sparrow because of false allegations from his abuser.
This is Disneys way of saying “fuck you.”

Johnny Depp was nominated for an Oscar for Captain Jack Sparrow. But yeah… let's pretend he's not valuable to cinematic history and rob us of more of him. #NoJohnnyNoPirates pic.twitter.com/Ut4WAebTja

Listen disney: Johnny Depp is the reason POTC had success. He gave Jack Sparrow life and created an amazing character because of his TALENT. And by not casting him you're not only gonna lose money and fans, but you're discrediting a domestic violence victim. #NoJohnnyNoPirates pic.twitter.com/WaTnt8S8ft

This is just a drop in the vast ocean of tweets out there of disgruntled Pirates and Depp fans.
People are just so confused by this news, and honestly, I can’t blame them for being.
It’s a very complication situation Disney has got itself into here.
They already have the main Pirates franchise which is supposedly still going.
Then they have the spin-off movie, which has been confirmed.
Finally, they have this other ‘all-female’ Pirates movie starring Margot Robbie which isn’t connected to anything else.
It’s just using the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ mantle.
Then, there’s the fact that it looks like we’re never going to see Depp play Captain Jack Sparrow again.
This is a really sad turn of events because he’s the real reason why those movies are so popular.
What do you make of this news?
Do you want Johnny Depp to be in Margot Robbie’s upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie?
