Johnny Depp warns the Disney makers that they can’t steal the iconic character, Jack Sparrow, from him.
Johnny Depp not only played the character of Captain Jack Sparrow, but he also owned it like nobody could. One can’t imagine any other actor playing the character from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’. While Disney didn’t imagine that Depp would make the whole film series run around his wild character, Jack Sparrow still ruled among the fans and earned him an Academy Award nomination.

Johnny Depp won’t let Jack Sparrow’s presence be erased by Disney
An accomplished actor of the calibre of Johnny Depp, who did not have any experience with sequel projects prior to ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, he went on to hit back to back instalments of the film series for a total of five films over the years. Depp told the press at San Sebastian Film Festival (via Comicbook.com) that while Disney is not interested in taking him back, he won’t let Jack Sparrow disappear in the pages of history. He would even perform at kids’ parties if that would help.
A lot of filmmakers are staying away from Depp despite him being an accomplished actor because Heard accused him of domestic abuse. The couple is still continuing the legal battle.
Jack Sparrow can show up anytime and anywhere
Disney is simultaneously working on two instalments of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, but this time you wouldn’t see the story revolving around Jack Sparrow. In fact, the cameo of Johnny Depp is cancelled because of the divorce controversy with his ex-wife Amber Heard.
While Disney is making sure they remain Depp free, the actor thinks no one can lock him and he doesn’t need anyone to play Jack Sparrow. He literally can fit into a box and surprise a kid on his birthday. In the past, Depp has turned up in the character at various charities.
