Earlier last week rumors of Disney rebooting the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchised surfaced, and almost as quickly as they starting spreading they officially announced that Johnny Depp would not be reprising his role in the legendary series.

Sources state that the fact that the last couple of installments of the franchise financially underperformed, and that is largely what contributed to Depp’s departure. Personally, I have some enormous disagreements with this decision.

I don’t think anyone is ever going to be able to replace Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow. He is a one of a kind character. Not to mention, if you saw the last installment of the series, you know that the plot line seemed to be intentionally left open to continue the story with the original characters – something that I was rather excited about. Unfortunately, it sounds like “Dead Men Tell No Tales” will be the last that we see of the original crew.
