We’ve missed you, Will Turner. After stepping away from the role for one movie, Orlando will reprise his famous role in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Fans grew to love Orlando’s character Will in the first three Pirates movies, so it’s amazing that he’s returning for another adventure with Johnny. Jack and Will make quite the team! The film will follow Jack as he searches for the trident of Poseidon.

Original cast member Geoffrey Rush, who plays Barbossa, will also be in the fifth movie. Now we just need Keira Knightley to return! The Giver’s Brenton Thwaites and The Maze Runner’s Kaya Scodelario are also starring in the film. Oscar-winner Javier Bardem is the new big bad. The film is set to be released on July 7, 2017. We can’t wait!

After announcing Will Turner, Johnny came out dressed as Jack Sparrow. He was true to character, acting all drunk and throwing grapes at people in the audience. He even dissed himself, saying he is a Disney “lesion.” Just one day before, Johnny was honored as a Disney Legend. What a weekend it’s been for incredible Disney news!

HollywoodLifers, are you excited that Orlando is returning for the fifth Pirates movie? Let us know!
