The production team must have used old images of Depp as a young man to create this younger Sparrow and with the help of CGI made it all come alive, much the same way the Rogue One team created a young Princess Leia for the closing of their movie.
It turns out Javier Bardem's Captain Salazar is "filled with rage" after a young Jack Sparrow destroyed his ship and condemned Salazar and his crew to what looks to be a zombie-ghost-pirate life where they're rotting away from the inside. Watch the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales trailer below.
Pirates of the Caribbean 5 is called Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in the USA, but I've heard rumors it could have the subtitle of "Salazar's Revenge" when it is released in the UK.
Bloom is making his comeback to the Pirates franchise by reprising his role as Will Turner.
"I once knew a Spaniard named ... something in Spanish", jokes Jack, who swigs from a bottle (likely of his favorite booze, rum) before diving into action.
On the other hand, there is Kaya Scodelario (Skins & The Maze Runner) who plays Carina Smyth. The first full-length trailer for the fifth film in Disney's Pirates series, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, premiered March 2.
His costume is pure Jack Sparrow and he has on a hat and long hair, but he is clean shaven and thinner.
In the player below, you can take a look at Walt Disney Pictures' latest chapter, Dead Men Tell No Tales. This is a fate Jack would rather avoid, so he seeks out the Trident of Poseidon, which grants its holder total power over the sea, and therefore over Salazar.
I'll admit that after the weird On Stranger Tides, it seems that directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (Kon-Tiki) might have righted the keel on the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise by channeling the best of Gore Verbinski's trilogy and adding a more streamlined story, next-generation special effects and a treasure of new faces.
