Johnny Depp is known for his many roles in both television and film, but one of his most iconic characters is Captain Jack Sparrow.
Depp portrayed the savvy pirate in all five “Pirates of the Caribbean“ films, including “Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl” (2003), “Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” (2006), “Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World’s End” (2007), “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” (2011), and “Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” (2017).
Due to his ex-wife’s, Amber Heard’s, allegations, Disney fired the actor and Depp will not return to the sixth installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean”.
Although Depp won’t return as Captain Jack Sparrow for the movies, he did bring out the beloved pirate to help make a terminally ill child’s dream come true.
Johnny Depp Channels Jack Sparrow
In the now-viral video, Johnny Depp dressed up as the beloved Jack Sparrow from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films for a terminally ill child, Kori.
“So, Capt. Kori, terribly sorry I missed out on this,” Depp said in the video. “Meant to say it, forgot to say it, didn’t say it, gonna say it now. Saying it, I’ll say it. I hear tell of something they speak about in the ages of now called the YouTube channel, which I don’t understand, but why not?”

The 11-year-old boy runs the YouTube channel “Kraken The Box,” and he is currently in palliative care after undergoing multiple heart transplant surgeries. As an outlet, Kori watched the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies during his recovery.
Later on in the video, Depp promised he would help spread awareness of Kori and his channel as it “will make for a wonderful entertainment expertise momentary lapse of togetherness altogether in one space, but far apart, but then, at the same time, very close. Curious, enduring, and strange.”
The actor closed by saying, “I wish you the best of luck, I am your number one fan, Captain Kori.”
Did Depp Have A Blunt In His Hand?
The fact that Johnny Depp once again dressed as Jack Sparrow to bring joy to Kori has fans talking, but what fans aren’t talking about is that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor had a blunt in his hand at the beginning of the video.
When watching the video, at the beginning, look closely at Depp’s right hand. As he waves it around, fans will notice he is holding something in between his two fingers — something that closely resembles a blunt.
But, Depp is known for smoking his own hand-rolled cigarettes, so it’s possible he is just puffing on one of them.
The actor puts it down within a few seconds of the video and it is never seen again, but it is clear that he did have it in his hand at the beginning of the video.
Depp Won’t Return As Jack Sparrow For The Movies
During the defamation trial against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, Heard’s attorney, Ben Rottenborn, asked Depp, while Depp was under testimony, “The fact is, Mr. Depp, if Disney came to you with $300 million and a million alpacas, nothing on this earth would get you to go back and work with Disney on a ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ film? Correct?”
To which Depp confirmed he would never return as Jack Sparrow, “That is true, Mr. Rottenborn.”
At this time, Depp is not returning to the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise for the sixth installment. Margot Robbie is currently set to star in the lead role.
