During the live-action film presentation at Disney’s Anaheim D23 Expo, the studio teased Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, the fifth instalment of the hugely popular franchise, directed by Norwegian filmmakers Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning (Kon-Tiki).
The film stars Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush returning as Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbosa as they face Javier Bardem’s Captain Salazar. Kaya Scodelario from The Maze Runner plays a new character called Carina Smyth, while Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent) plays another new character named Henry. Depp appeared in person, and it was confirmed that Orlando Bloom will be returning as Will Turner from the original trilogy.
