          I am really worried about a reboot of the Franchise, I may be in the minority but I loved Dead Men Tell No Tales, and they left it open for a sixth and final movie. But to be fully honest there can be no pirates of the Caribbean without Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow.

        Some people never learn. Remember Two and a Half Men? Charlie Sheen was fired. The series crashes. Potc without Depp is absurd.

            OH

            DAMN! I never thought of Robert Sheehan doing that, now that you mention it he would literally be perfect he is a great actor even before umbrella academy. He was in Misfits and if anybody watched that they would 1000% agree

        Only Depp should play Capt. Jack, otherwise, cast a whole different pirate character for the franchise. Let someone develope the character of Jack’s son instead. That option was made available years ago. There will only be one Jack Sparrow, and that is Johnny Depp!

        No, tbh, the moment you start acting thats already studpidity in and of itself. Who cares whether the character is this person or that person?

      None can replace Johnny Depp. Captain Jack sparrow is nothing without him.
      I really would pray the reboot to be a complete failure in the box office if Johnny Depp isn’t gonna return….

    Doesn’t this open up for the Character “RED”? She’s a strong woman, is a pirate and not to be sexist, she will be attractive in a tight fitting top. Hollywood gold. Could be based around her, think Captain Marvel? Disney can send the royalty check to me at …….

      No no no. Bad idea. Don’t reboot and have a new actor play Captain Jack Sparrow. At least not for a good 10 years or more. For now, introduce new pirates. And maybe get William and Elizabeth back in.

      Here’s the plot, thought up in 2 minutes while walking yesterday. Red is a 12 year old girl being sold, (like the original ride) she daringly escapes, this makes a nice opening to the film, runs into an aging pirate, (Depp cameo) fade to black 20 years later, she has her own ship. While trying to pirate another ship, Efron, also a pirate in his own ship is trying from the other side. Both of their ships get blown up, they each swim to the new abandoned ship (from opposite sides) make their way on, not noticing the other. Bump into one another and it’s a love squabble over whose ship it is, they work together pirating, while plotting against each other, falling in love at the end. GOLD!!! LOL

    So is this going to be a reboot for tweens because I doubt anyone will see it!
    This should be viewed as an embarrassment for Disney. Just come up with a new movie idea already. Quite regurgitating old movies!

    I wants allof the pirates ofthe caribbean movies, i wants johnny depp in them everyoe wants johnny depp in them, i’m his most hugest fan ever and forever. Everybody says the new pirates of the caribbean movies won’t be the same without him in them. Please gives him a second chance on everything. Everybody makes mistakes, there’s no such thing as perfect. Johnny Depp even looks mostly cherokee like me he has the high cheek bones husky indian voice,indian-shaped eyes and he looks totally indian when he’s angry in his movies. Please gives Johnny Depp a second chance, i’m his most hugest fan ever and forever.The new pirates of the caribbean films won’t be the same without him,all of his fans wants him in them ‘ everybody loves beloved johnny depp as. Capt.Jack Sparrow. Thanks..

    He needs his own iconic character. Jack Sparrow shouldn’t be replaced with a new actor. Besides, I’m quite done with Jack Sparrow and Johnny Depp too.

    POTC COTBP is my favorite movie of all time. It’s a classic at this point. I wish they would just leave it alone. The sequels were decent, though none nearly as good at the first. There’s no reason, beyond greed, to try to recreate something with different actors that was already good enough. BIG THUMBS DOWN.

    *Sidenote: I hope this rumor is untrue. Depp is the iconic Captain Jack. Period. Part of why he works so well in that role is his brilliant acting and wardrobe, but also because of his looks. With his softer jawline and big, dark eyes, he was able to believably portray a bad boy with a heart of gold. Zac Efron is attractive, but in a different way. He looks like frat boy with his small eyes and square jaw. I think he would fit in nicely as one of the officials in the British Royal Navy that butts heads with the pirates but that’s it.

    Bottom line: This reboot is unnecessary and an insult to original series.

    Why not make a WHOLE NEW pirate series? Be Fn ORIGINAL already. A reboot wont come close to the originals.

    I just watched all the PofC movies and am stoked to see a new one., BUT ONLY with Johnny Depp. Idk the said reasons or circumstances behind wanting to bring in someone else[Efron] to play Capt. Jack Sparrow but I do know that as much as I’m dieing to see another PiratesofCaribbean movie, It would only be with the actor who made the movies possible and big as they are today [Johnny Depp] So either sequel with Johnny Depp or let the series be done ands start a new.

    This is gonna be the worst decision possible. Potc 6 should happen only with Johnny depp, if it’s a different actor it would never be the same. Also they build a next movie up with potc 5 post credit scene . Johnny did no wrong , he was on the wrong side of the me too movement with his previous wife, she lied to claim not only money but also destroyed him , so people would not put him in their movies.

    Wow. My 5 year old grandson is absolutely nuts for Pirates of the Caribbean and Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow. I just redid his room in our house with a Pirates of the Caribbean theme. He’s got pirate ships and figures. His interest started with a playmobil pirate ship that expanded into the movies. I guess he’d handle a change, much like changes he’s seen in Spider-Man, but this change in Sparrow seems wrong.

    That is honestly the dumbest thing Disney could possibly do for the Pirates series. Johnny Depp made the character what it was! There is no other Jack Sparrow and even someone as good as Efron couldnt duplicate Johnny’s creation. Its one thing to just have no sparrow, but its quite another to try and replace him. Sorry but i know without Johnny, I would have never seen one of the Pirates movie!! Team Jack !!!
