One of the most well-known roles of Johnny Depp over the years is Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean and when the controversies around him and his ex-wife, Amber Heard, started swirling around, Disney ultimately dropped the actor from the role in 2018.

For the first time after the high-profile trial that Depp won against Heard, his image as Jack Sparrow was projected on the Magic Kingdom Castle in Disneyland Paris. Tweets and videos of the projection became viral. Check this tweet to see the video.

As seen in the video, the crowd rejoiced upon seeing Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow being projected and this stirs the controversy whether the actor will be reinstated and don the blings of Jack Sparrow once more.

The buzz has been circulating that after the victory of Johnny Depp in the high-profile trial against his ex-wife, he may possibly return to the franchise again as the beloved pirate. During the trial, Depp said that he understood the decision of the studio of cutting him off to remove themselves from the controversy he got into.
