pirates of the caribbean reboot update

Ahoy, mateys! Disney is still putting together their Pirates of the Caribbean reboot, and while we know very little about the project itself, we do know that Johnny Depp is getting the old heave-ho. Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow is not expected to return, and his departure is going to save the House of Mouse enough loot to fill up several treasure chests. While Depp fans may be disappointed about this, Disney is likely happy to set sail without him, and save some of their precious booty in the process.

pirates of the caribbean reboot

If you thought the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise had sailed off into the wild blue yonder, think again! Disney is apparently exploring a Pirates of the Caribbean reboot, and they want the Deadpool writing team of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to handle the script. Jerry Bruckheimer will still serve as producer, but there’s a good chance none of the original cast will return – including Johnny Depp.

Pirates of the Caribbean Redd

Updates to Disney theme park rides are a fairly regular occurrence, even to the beloved and iconic Pirates of the Caribbean, the last attraction that Walt Disney personally oversaw before his death in 1966. We’ve already written about how they’ve added a new female pirate character named Redd to a revamped version of the ride’s auction scene, but now we have some new video of Redd meeting guests in the park. Could she become the new face of the ride movie forward? And maybe even the movie franchise?

pirates of the caribbean ride changes

Update: Walt Disney World’s Pirates of the Caribbean has re-opened today with its updated auction scene. You can check out video of the tweaked scene, and its new female pirate character, below.

Whenever Disney tampers with their most beloved and iconic theme park rides in any way, fans have the habit of decrying whatever adjustments are being made and shouting “Walt would never have approved this!” Sometimes, the outrage is justified. Sometimes, it’s not.

But it’s no wonder that news of a major alteration to a famous scene in the Pirates of the Caribbean rides is buried at the bottom of a blog post. This one is going to prove controversial – the “wench auction” is being removed and replaced with a new scene.

Now yet another person involved with the new Dwayne Johnson film has drawn that same comparison, along with divulging a tiny bit of info about the film’s approach we hadn’t heard before.

Pirates of the Caribbean 6

This past summer, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales came and went without much pomp and circumstance. The sequel only has 30% at Rotten Tomatoes, and while it has a 4.7 rating from critics (which is the more important number at the review aggregator website), that’s still not a warm reception. So will we be seeing any more Pirates of the Caribbean movies?

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer is putting a positive spin on the box office for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which performed nearly $70 million under the last film at the domestic box office, and the fourth film was already $68 million behind the previous sequel. But despite his upbeat attitude about the sequel’s performance, it sounds like Walt Disney Pictures will have to wait to see how Dead Men Tell No Tales does on home video before they proceed with a new adventure.
