I think there is. had a general feeling that without Jack there is no Pirates franchise. And there is probably a lot of truth to that. But now there have been doubts about it, certainly why not have more Pirates of the Caribbean movies. I was thinking about it the other day and you can easily think of stories where maybe someone looks for Jack and walks up to Mr. Gibbs and says, “How could I find Jack? Of people in search of the legendary Jack Sparrow.You can certainly keep these names alive, even in a movie that doesn’t necessarily have the characters in it. [originais]. “

During a press conference at the San Sebastian Film Festival, Depp revealed that he will continue to bring the pirate to life, if only by hosting costume parties for children.

“When I’m asked about ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ I say I can go to someone’s house and say ‘I can play your kid’s birthday party in a costume.’ I guess that’s the positive side of bringing in characters like this Captain Jack or whatever character I’ve been lucky enough to bring to life. “

He continued:

“I don’t need a business to do this. I can do it myself and no one can take it away from me. It is the greatest pleasure to be Jack Sparrow. I can travel with Captain Jack in a box, literally. For me, what matters is to bring smiles everywhere I go.

Recall that the script for the new ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ is written by Christina Hodson (‘Birds of Prey’).

The feature film will not be the reboot of the saga in question. The story will be “totally original” and with new characters and, following in the footsteps of the original productions, will be inspired by the attractions of Disneyland and Disney World.
