Was Disney finally proven wrong?

As you may well know, actor Johnny Depp has reportedly stated he would not return as Captain Jack Sparrow for another film in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, even if Disney gave him "$300 million and a million alpacas" as well as publicly apologize for removing him from the Pirates franchise despite past circumstances. Even producer Jerry Bruckheimer had previously commented about potentially bringing back Depp's Jack Sparrow, prior to a more recent announcement of a reboot for the franchise. HOWEVER, in a move long-awaited by Pirates fans everywhere, Disney executives Bob Iger and Sean Bailey made a surprising announcement with Johnny Depp, which makes all our dreams come true.

On a personal note, before we get into the specific details, I am very pleased with this news playing out the way it should and am very thankful for Disney and Bruckheimer for the following...

APRIL FOOLS!
Har har! This will never happen. Thanks Disney.


Before I go on, I would like to apologize for this deception, which I admit, I've gone back and forth on deciding whether or not I should even attempt such a cruel prank. I think I speak for all active members in the POTC Wiki community by saying we strive to make this Fandom website the best resource for this beloved franchise, for better or worse. In the end, I figured this was an opportunity I couldn't let pass courtesy of the REAL (and in my opinion, unfortunate) news about the future of the Pirates franchise.

On that note, please read this blog instead, which covers current news which is 100% truth. So far, Disney and Bruckheimer are moving forward with a planned reboot of the Pirates franchise, in which neither Depp nor his former costars will return. Again, I'm sorry, but in the words of Captain Jack Sparrow..."I couldn't resist, mate." I guess it's the trickster pirate in me. Speaking of which, I'd like to clarify my recent non-prank activities on POTC Wiki, like having Sparrow-ified a few things on the Main Page, and perhaps have more in the works in honor of our beloved Captain—Stay tuned!
