Johnny Depp made an appearance in costume as Jack Sparrow at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim to tease the fifth installment in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, “Dead Men Tell No Tales,” joining Walt Disney Pictures’ president of production Sean Bailey onstage.
“Where are we?” Depp (or “Captain Jack”) asked after staggering onstage. Bailey replied, “Disneyland.” Blinking thoughtfully, Jack responded, “Never heard of it,” before he started throwing out grapes into the audience, mirroring Pixar boss John Lasseter’s presentation yesterday, in which Lasseter gave out shirts from the stage. “Grape! Grape! It bounced, don’t pick it up. I hate grapes. I despise the rotten little things,” he muttered while distributing the freebies.
“I came to sing you a song!” he declared, before being ushered off the stage by Bailey. “I didn’t want to sing you a song anyway!” He insisted as a parting shot.
“Dead Men Tell No Tales” recently wrapped production, and is slated for release on July 7, 2017. The fifth installment in the franchise stars Depp along with returning stars Orlando Bloom (Will Turner) and Geoffrey Rush (Captain Barbossa), and franchise newcomers Javier Bardem, Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario.
