You would think that people would get tired of seeing the same franchises but this is not the case when Johnny Depp is Captain Jack Sparrow. The larger than life, Hunter S Thompson inspired character is one of those on screen characters that put the D in Disney, and Depp fans love the thrill of his performance too much to say no to a 5th outing.
To young audiences, these movies allow them to travel to a different world, and it’s a fun ride. It is a bit like going to Disneyland at the cinema, except without the 4 hour wait for each ride.
So looking toward the future, the script for Pirates of the Caribbean 5 has been completed but Johnny Depp has not yet signed on. It is unlikely the franchise could continue without him, but maybe he will have one more go? Are you a fan of the franchise or is this just too much swashbuckling for you?
