A news outlet recently confirmed the news that a new female-led Pirates of the Caribbean is in the works—but fans are unhappy.
Every time a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie comes out, fans are thrilled with the news and flock to theatres to watch the movie. The franchise has a solid fanbase that is devoted to the movie series and is ready to watch new sequels and movies that come out.
Unfortunately, the newest Pirates of the Caribbean movie might hurt Disney if the current responses of fans are any indication.

However, rather than express excitement at this movie, fans were upset to hear that—despite all of producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s statements—Disney still hasn’t appeared to have patched things up with Johnny Depp to bring the veteran actor back as Captain Jack Sparrow.
One commented, “They’re never going to outdue Jack Sparrow. The pirates movies are nothing without Sparrow. Just give it up please.”
Another added, “Disney can do whatever they want…..It’s their funeral and millions upon millions of movie-goers and dollars to be lost. Will serve them right. It’s really quite simple: #NoJohnnyNoPirates.”
Note: The trailer posted above is a fan-made trailer.
This isn’t the first instance of a female-led Pirates of the Caribbean movie making the rounds. Previously, we’ve reported on rumors that Margot Robbie was being considered to helm the next movie. However, that movie was reported to be abandoned.
So far, we have no confirmation from Disney on any of this news, and much of this remains speculation. This news from The Hollywood Handle is the first update we’ve heard on this story in a while. It will certainly be interesting to see what actually pans
Would you watch a female-led “Pirates of the Caribbean?” Or are you team #NoJohnnyNoPirates?
