Rumor: Disney Could Make ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 6’ a Disney+ Show With a Young Jack Sparrow

The rumor mill is spinning again, and this time it’s over the possibility of another Pirates of the Caribbean story, but this time it would be with young Jack Sparrow and it would be a show on Disney+.

Who is Disney rumored to possibly replace Johnny Depp?

If the rumors are true, Disney is eyeing Zac Efron (and some other actors) for the iconic role. Not sure who else, but Zac Efron is the name being used at this time.

Now Disney knows they can’t simply replace Johnny Depp in the current role. The fan backlash would be too great. He’s so iconic as Captain Jack Sparrow, that it likely wouldn’t work. So instead it seems they want to go the prequel, TV show route, and replace him with a younger version of himself.

How this ties into the rumored film,we really don’t know. The most recent information in regards to the 6th film is that it originally had Deadpool and Zombieland writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, but they quit and were replaced with Craig Mazin, the Chernobyl creator, and series writer Terry Rossio.  There were also rumors that instead of Johnny Depp and Captain Jack Sparrow, they were going to make it about Redd the Pirate from the updated auction scene in the attraction.

I don’t know how any of that ties into a show instead of a film.

It’s likely that if Disney moved forward on a Pirates of the Caribbean film without Johnny Depp, the audiences would not turn out. If the rumors are true Disney must also think that is a likely outcome. But they don’t want to let the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise go to waste, so why not make content for Disney+ and get a new face to be accepted at Jack Sparrow, on a smaller screen?

Of course it’s all rumors at this point in time. But it does sound like something Disney would do.
