Disney has come up with the idea of an all-new Pirates of The Caribbean, but this time with a twist. Unlike the previous films, this upcoming will appear as a female-fronted version. And according to reports, the film written by Christina Hodson will star Margot Robbie for the lead role.
Besides, the film will not classify as a spin-off of the original franchise—a unique story of its own without any signs of Jack Sparrow. The entire project’s set to have a female front and, of course, a female lead.

Moreover, Margot Robbie will star as the lead for the upcoming up once again reuniting with Christina Hodson. The two have previously worked together on the film Birds of Prey, which released earlier this year.
Nevertheless, that means we won’t get any glimpses of the iconic Captain Jack Sparrow played by none other than Johnny Depp. On the other hand, it’s hard to say if we’ll ever get to say Johnny Depp plays his favorite role ever again.

Meanwhile, Johnny’s fans have revolted against this decision. They don’t seem happy about Disney, not including Depp or his character, Jack Sparrow, in the movie. Quite a few fans decided to boycott the film at once, while others feel they should include Depp as well.
Many fans took the matter to Twitter and argued over the situation. Some felt that Margot and Johnny both should star in the film together. Many wrote that Pirates of the Caribbean’s nothing without Jack Sparrow and, most importantly, Depp.
Johnny Depp carried every Pirates of the Caribbean movie. He was going through financial troubles, a bitter divorce, and was falsely accused of assaulting his partner. He still killed his role EVERY MOVIE. You got me fucked up if you think I’m watching the new one without him pic.twitter.com/7NZfLF63Nb
