    Same, I’m mad for seafaring stories. That’s why I’m always checking out this, the Aquaman and the little mermaid boards/threads. And there’s still a ton of myth left to adapt.

    I don’t think the Depp factor is as big of a deal as people might think these days. I mean, him being in the last Harry Potter flick didn’t help them out at all.

    it might even be fun to set it before the original films since that was sort of about the end of the golden age of piracy. So maybe this could be the start. I wonder if they’ll change the name slightly like they did with Jurassic Park/world just to make it different and call it the pirates of the pacific or something

    Seafaring stories are great, but the Disney Pirates of the Caribbean brand is inextricably tied to Jack Sparrow. If they're going to do pirate stories that don't involve him or anybody from the first set of movies, they need to call it something else, unless they come up with a really great character to replace him. But that's going to be tough.

    Now, it could be about Will Turner's adventures, and then they could call it PotC. Orlando Bloom can still pull that character off. But then it'll be a question of, Can they put together a movie like that without Jack Sparrow and still make it profitable?

    its damn near impossible he is an iconic character especially for kids/families(the core audience) and depp still visits sick children dressed as jack
    Johnny Depp surprises children's hospital patients dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow

    Nah the ride that inspired the movie existed before Depp. And no matter how many sick kids you visit you can’t undo whacking your wife.

    it’s time for something new. Captain jack has run his course anyway. There’s nothing else you can do with him that hasn’t been done. And there’s a whole world of pirates to explore

    Haha it would be fun though. Just seeing him like jump in the water and literally smash his way through a pirate ship like captain marvel through an alien craft

    Unfortunately, Will Turner was never that interesting as a character so I wouldn't really be interested in seeing a movie all about him. Sparrow (and to an extent Barbossa) was what made that first Pirates movie work.

    No, they have save the rock for the inevitable crossover. The Disney Ride Cinematic Universe.

    I kind of agree that will turner is a bit bland. Even brenton Thwaites’ character would be better to come back than him.
    Michael b Jordan might be interesting as a lead. He could play Jack Anderson. Or maybe they could get someone like Tom hardy or whatever if they want a sure thing

    Always thought the franchise peaked with Curse of the Black Pearl. Even though the sequels made more money, for me, they never captured the feel of the first one.
    Will be tough to reboot without Sparrow (not Depp, but the character of Jack). Hopefully they'll be able to come up with a completely new character to lead this franchise into new waters (sorry for the pun)

    I do not see the point. POTC = Jack Sparrow/Depp and to be honest the last 2 movies seemed like they were just beating a dead horse to see how much money it craps out.

    I wonder if they could show the leviathan? I suppose people might see it as a pro whaling move. But there’s probably a way to do it in a cool way

    They should just cast Tom Hiddleston, Emily Blunt and Kelsey Grammer.

    Oh, and call it The Secret of Monkey Island.

    I love the setting of the movies.
    the sequels could‘ve worked, if the fight scenes weren‘t to over-the-top and the story twists weren‘t too forced

    Agree that the fight scenes just got ridiculous, and not in a good, fun way.

    And the first movie worked the best because Jack Sparrow was a supporting character, not the lead. Once they decided that he was going to be the main character, he got overused and stale.

    "I am Guybrush Threepwood, mighty pirate."

    Now a Monkey Island movie is something that would get my attention.

    I can’t see the original being as big without him. He was easily the character that added the most to the film.

    I wonder if taika would do it? That might be fun? Or someone else with a wacky sense of humour like Richard ayoade or someone like that

    Yeah like a few others just don't see this working without Depp/Sparrow. Would rather they just didn't bother but money talks and they will undoubtedly try and re-boot this.

    Can anyone justify why this is a good idea?

    I think it stands a good chance of losing it.
