Disneyland Castle lights up: When his ex-wife Amber Heard published an op-ed on her experience as a victim of domestic violence, Johnny Depp supposedly lost his position as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series. The actor had already sued her for slander, which he just prevailed. And now, four years after Disney severed relations with Depp, the studio has restored his image after a jury found in his favour. Currently, many are predicting that Johnny Depp will return for Pirates of the Caribbean 6.
Just four days after Amber Heard’s op-ed in The Washington Post was out in 2018, Disney had cut ties with Johnny Depp. Disney projected the actor’s likeness as Jack Sparrow onto the castle at Disneyland Paris after the actor defeated Amber in court. Depp may be seen in a Pirates of the Caribbean exhibit in photos and videos posted on social media.
As Depp’s face emerges on the screen in the viral footage, you can also hear applause from the audience. It is followed by a quote from him that appears in the movie. The series’ theme tune was playing while more Johnny movie sequences were displayed in Disneyland. Fireworks and fountains were also used in the light display. Disney hasn’t utilised Johnny as Jack in the light show since 2018; this is the first time.
A former Disney official was quoted by People as saying that Johnny Depp may rejoin the Pirates of the Caribbean series. The actor’s career is anticipated to rebound after the case’s outcome, he continued. The executive told People, “I absolutely believe post-verdict that Pirates is primed for rebooting with Johnny as Capt. Jack is back on board. ” There is just too much potential box-office treasure for a beloved character deeply embedded in the Disney culture.”
Previously, during his evidence in the trial, Johnny Depp was questioned about whether he would join the movie franchise once more if Disney contacted him. The actor has already stated that he would decline the offer. Heard’s lawyer had questioned Depp, The fact is, Mr Depp if Disney came to you with $300 million and a million alpacas, nothing on this earth would get you to go back and work with Disney on a Pirates of the Caribbean film? Correct?” Depp had replied, “That is true.”
On the sets of The Rum Diary in 2009, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard crossed paths and soon after began dating. They tied the knot in 2015. Amber Heard was seeing photographer Tasya Van Ree at the time, while Johnny Depp was committed to French actress Vanessa Paradis. The two started dating in secret in 2011 after parting ways with their respective ex-partners. In 2014, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard got married. When a photo of the actress wearing an elaborate engagement ring surfaced, the story went viral. On Depp’s own island in the Bahamas, they were wed in 2015 in a very secret ceremony.
In 2016, Heard requested a divorce, alleging that Depp had physically mistreated her while inebriated throughout their marriage. Heard was “trying to gain a premature financial resolution by alleging abuse,” according to Depp, who refuted the claims. 2017 saw the completion of their divorce. Because of an opinion piece Amber Heard published in the Washington Post in 2018, Johnny Depp later sued her for defamation. A jury found in Johnny Depp’s favour earlier this month. Additionally, they mandated that Amber Heard pay $10.35 million in penalties.
