By now it’s fair to make the assumption that Johnny Depp has Captain Jack Sparrow down as one of his favourite characters he has ever played. While the paydays certainly don’t hurt him, the very fact that he can dress up as the character and inspire his troves of fans young and old is surely the key reason why he is so keen to once again return to the role for Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge.
As the release date of the film approaches, Depp took time to further promote the blockbuster sequel as he visited the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland and put his character work – and the classic pirate outfit – to good use to surprise more than a few ride guests.

Johnny Depp returns to the big screen as the iconic, swashbuckling anti-hero Jack Sparrow in the all-new “Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge” The rip-roaring adventure finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill-fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack. Jack’s only hope of survival lies in the legendary Trident of Poseidon, but to find it he must forge an uneasy alliance with Carina Smyth (Kaya Scodelario), a brilliant and beautiful astronomer, and Henry (Brenton Thwaites), a headstrong young sailor in the Royal Navy. At the helm of the Dying Gull, his pitifully small and shabby ship, Captain Jack seeks not only to reverse his recent spate of ill fortune, but to save his very life from the most formidable and malicious foe he has ever faced.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge is ready to set sail in UK cinemas on 25th May.
