The trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard is currently taking place, which occurred because the actor sued the actress for defamation, which led him to lose contracts with large companies. One of them was Disney, who fired him from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, but now, Depp says that he would not return as Jack Sparrow or for a large amount of money.
In addition to ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, Johnny Depp lost his role in ‘Fantastic Animals 3’, where he was replaced by Mads Mikkelsen, while many producers moved away from the actor to offer him jobs in their productions. However, many fans have been showing their support for Depp since the start of the trial.

Since last April 11, the lawsuit trial between both actors has been taking place. After Disney announced the reboot of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise in 2018, fans of the actor asked him to return to life as Jack Sparrow. But now, his position is firm on the issue.
If Disney came to you with $300 million dollars, and a million alpacas, nothing in this world would make you work with Disney again on a Pirates of the Caribbean movie? The lawyer questioned Depp. “That’s right,” replied the actor.

The response to such questioning was forceful and firm: “That’s right, Mr. Rottenborn,” said Johnny Depp. As early as 2020, Depp had made a similar statement about a house mouse deal. However, this time it becomes relevant, given the numbers reported by Forbes, Disney would have saved $90 million dollars by not having the actor in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 6’.
Disney fires Johnny Depp from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’
Amber Heard’s Washington Post article published in 2018 was the reason Disney finally severed ties with Johnny Depp. Although, the defense of the actress ensures that the company also had its own reasons, according to a record of the actor’s bad behavior on the sets.
With Jack Sparrow out of Johnny Depp’s career, the actor says goodbye to the most recurring character in his filmography, which, along with his role in ‘Fantastic Animals’, had become one of his fans’ favorites. Although, more and more, companies come to seek his services again.
The trial between Amber Heard and Johnny Depp will continue for the next few weeks, so it is expected that new evidence, testimonies and statements from those involved will be presented, to finally have the verdict of who is the winner in the lawsuit for alleged defamation.
