Disney Confident Pirates Can Survive Without Johnny Depp

Really? For some reason, Disney sounds confident Pirates Of The Caribbean can survive without Johnny Depp.

Maybe they weren’t watching their movies because Pirates Of The Caribbean began to dive once Kiera Knightly and Orlando Bloom were no longer involved. The reason why Pirates Of The Caribbean worked so well was that Johnny Depp, Kiera Knightly, and Orlando Bloom had perfect chemistry and all of them were equally strong characters.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was the worst of the five films. Penelope Cruz and Johnny Depp was not an appealing duo. However, the franchise redeemed itself with Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The introduction of Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites) and Carina Smith (Kaya Scodelario) breathed new life back into the franchise. Read on…

Disney Confident Pirates Can Survive Without Johnny DeppCelebNMovies247.com was actually looking forward to another film with Thwaites and Scodelario, so hopefully, Disney will keep them in the upcoming reboot.

We just think it should just be another movie in the current franchise and NOT a reboot, just new storytelling that overlaps and blends into a new franchise without Johnny Depp.

Here is what Disney is saying:

Disney’s president of production, Sean Bailey, had this to say when asked if Pirates can survive without Depp:

We want to bring in new energy and vitality. I love the [Pirates of the Caribbean] movies, but part of the reason Paul and Rhett are so interesting is that we want to give it a kick in the pants. And that’s what I’ve tasked them with.

To be realistic, it sounds more like a foolish decision on Disney’s part to move on without Depp. It’s like this when you have perfect symmetry you don’t change the wheel because you think its a smart move.

Hopefully, Disney can stop looking at dollar signs and got back to the first film to see the golden nugget of what a Hollywood classic is made of. This way they can reincorporate Depp back into the film somewhere somehow. It’s bad enough that the franchise has lost Captain Hector Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) the catalyst that helps to make the films the classics to stand the test of time.

When it comes to the critics, Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales told a sad tale of bad reviews and domestic disappointment. It did, however, make plenty of money overseas. Still, Pirates 6 talk appears to be on the backburner, for now, as this reboot script takes form. We will see what is said after a script is produced.

At this point, all we have are rumors. There’s talk that new pirate Redd might replace Jack Sparrow.
