Last seen taking over for Davy Jones, and only allowed to see his love Elizabeth Swan once every 10 years, Will Turner disappeared at the end of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (Part 3). Confirmed today at D23 Expo 2015, Orlando Bloom will reprise his role as the blacksmith turned pirate for Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth installment of the franchise.
More on this and catch Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow in the image gallery here below.
This is great news! I was not alone in my sadness when Will Turner sacrificed himself, the true hero he is. Once every 10 years is not enough! I fully expected to see Swan (Keira Knightley) go rescue her love immediately, and not wait all that time raising her kid alone.
Fans at the Expo also got treated to Johnny Depp in full Jack Sparrow regalia and manner.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales opens July 7th, 2017, and will star Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Javier Bardem, and Geoffrey Rush.
