The Petition By Depp Heads Which Is Not Cooling Down

Since 2016, Depp has ended his participation in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, experienced a contentious and public divorce, and appeared in Yoga Hosers. But there’s one thing his fans won’t stand for: a Pirates of the Caribbean movie without a Jack Sparrow.

But that hasn’t stopped Depp Heads from insisting that the film change its (again, completely nebulous) course by bringing the 57-year-old actor back into the fold, where there are no indications that he isn’t.disneystudios-jacksparrow-pirates-johnnydepp.jpg

At least that’s the vibe we’re getting from this Change.org petition calling for Depp‘s reinstatement as captain of the Black Pearl. The call to signatory arms, which was started roughly two years ago by Riza Siddiqui of Pakistan, has resurfaced in recent days, and is now experiencing exponential growth in the wake of Depp‘s failed defamation suit and departure from Fantastic Beasts.

Nine months ago, the petition hit 150,000 signatures. Today, it’s on the precipice of doubling that number.

The petition, entitled “We want JOHNNY DEPP back as CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW,” is forthright about its end goal: keep our Depps in the briny depths. “Johnny Depp has been out recently as Captain Jack Sparrow,” Siddiqui wrote in the petition’s description. “One of the reasons is his personal issues as well.

He has been playing this role since 2003 when we first saw him arriving at the Port Royal in his boat with that epic background music playing. But can you imagine someone else portraying this instead of him? Or no Jack Sparrow at all?

Pirates of the Caribbean 6 currently has no release date or completed script, and may or may not star Johnny Depp.
