Although the iconic ride was first introduced in 1967, interest in it grew after its release in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black PearlThe performance of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow.
Due to the Amber Heard allegations surrounding Depp, there are questions about Depp’s connections to the franchise.

Depp’s legal problems and public battles against his ex led many to believe that part of the refurbishment was to take Jack Sparrow out of the ride in a similar way to his departure from the film series. Depp’s last appearance was in 2017. A reboot is rumored to be in his future.
However, that didn’t happen! Sparrow is still there and the show looks exactly as it did before. However, it was not a smooth transition. Deadline reports that the ride was reopened one hour later than planned, had a 45-minute wait and suffered several breakdowns. This is not ideal for Disneyland officials, since the March closure was to address some of these lagging problems.

Depp remains part of the cast. PiratesFranchise in one fashion. Will the rumors about Depp’s return in the film series also be true after his legal victory over Heard turn out to have been true? It remains to be seen if the actor’s ex will try to get the verdict reversed due to the involvement of an alleged fake jury. Stranger things have happened.
