However, Johnny’s rep denied reports that the actor will be teaming up with Disney nearly four years after they reportedly cut ties with him when his ex-wife Amber heard spoke about being a victim of domestic violence in an opinion piece. There has been much speculation about Johnny making a comeback in the Disney movie, since a jury largely ruled in his favor in his recent libel lawsuit against Amber.
His representative told NBC News of the source-based report in Poptopic, “This is made up.” It comes after Johnny told Amber’s attorney at trial that “nothing on this earth,” not even “300 million and a million alpacas” could lead him to rejoin Disney for a Pirates of the Caribbean -movie. The attorney, Ben Rottenborn, had asked him, “If Disney came to you with $300 million and a million alpacas, nothing on this earth would make you go back and work with Disney on a ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’.” ‘ movie, right?” Johnny replied, “That’s true.”
He also said of the entire episode with Disney: “Two years had passed of constant worldwide talk about me as this woman beater. So I’m sure Disney was trying to cut ties to be safe. The #MeToo movement was in on that moment in full swing They didn’t remove my character from the rides They didn’t stop selling Captain Jack Sparrow dolls They didn’t stop selling anything They just didn’t want anything to come after me that they would find.”
On the other hand, Disney showed Johnny’s image as Jack Sparrow in its light shows for the first time since 2018. The actor’s image was projected onto the castle at Disneyland Paris as part of a Pirates of the Caribbean screening.
