The last few months have been a whirlwind for Johnny Depp. In the wake of Mr. Depp winning a $15 million defamation case against Amber Heard, who was awarded $2 million in damages, the actor, known for his work in many beloved franchises like Sweeney Todd, Edward Scissorhands, Alice In Wonderland, and many others, has released a new musical project in July that will be available on all platforms.
Naturally, Johnny Depp is best known as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Disney film series Pirates of the Caribbean, in which he played the lead role. Disney allegedly replaced Johnny Depp with Margot Robbie in the newest Pirates of the Caribbean film before the court’s judgment. Dwayne Johnson has also been rumored to replace Johnny Depp in a future Pirates of the Caribbean film.

Rumors have been circulating recently that Johnny Depp may return to the role of Captain Jack Sparrow. Rumors circulated that Disney had given Johnny Depp a $301 million agreement to reprise his role and star in a new Disney Plus series, based on “inside sources.” Here’s how it all started in the article:
“Disney has allegedly offered Johnny Depp a USD $301 million contract deal for him to return as Jack Sparrow in another ‘Pirates’ film and a Disney Plus series!”
However, the $301 million figure apparently stemmed from Johnny Depp’s testimony in court that he would not return to Disney even if they offered him “$300 million.”
Snopes Fact Checker has found that Disney fans might want to take a step back before they get their hopes up too high about the rumors and speculation.
“We attempted to reach out to poptopic.com.au with questions about their story. However, an email address listed by the website automatically sent back a message that indicated the inbox was no longer working. Two Twitter handles for writers that were shown on the website’s editorial page were also unavailable,” the fact-checker said.
“In sum, there’s no evidence that Disney has offered or is considering offering Depp a deal worth $301 million to return to the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise. This story will be updated if more information comes to light.”
There is still hope for fans who wish to see Johnny Depp return as Captain Jack Sparrow, even if this reported deal isn’t true.
In recent days, a former Disney official has revealed that he believes Johnny Depp will return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. He believes they’ll make Margot Robbie the daughter of Sparrow and possibly tease a brief cameo appearance for the sake of testing. Stay tuned with us only on Lee Daily
