It is not clear whether Johnny Depp will return for a sixth part of the franchise. The actor played in the first five films of the eccentric captain Jack Sparrow but hit the last two years discredited after allegations of domestic violence by ex-wife Amber Heard and several lawsuits with his former management.
Pirates of The Caribbean is a hugely lucrative series for Disney. The first five films brought in a total of over 4.5 billion dollars. It was the first franchise where more than one film by the miljardgrens went. For both Dead Man’s Chest (2006) and On Stranger Tides (2011) worldwide more than a billion dollars in movie tickets purchased.
