Orlando Bloom Set To Return As Will Turner In Next ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ Movie
The next Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Dead Men Tell No Tales, will hit the theaters on July 7, 2017, but Disney has already unveiled new details at the D-23 fan expo last weekend.
Many beloved characters will return, such as Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow obviously, as well as Orlando Bloom as Will Turner, Geoffrey Rush as Hector Barbossa and Javier Bardem as Captain Salazar. Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Twhaites will also co-star. Bloom’s return has been a long-time awaited one, since he didn’t star the last movie of the franchise that came out in 2011.
No word was given concerning an eventual return of Keira Knightley as the beautiful Elizabeth Swann though.
Other movies were introduced at the D-23 event, including Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Waston as the Belle and Dan Stevens as The Beast. It is directed by Bill Condon and will hit the theaters on March 17, 2017.
Mia Wasikowska also made an appearance to discuss the next Alice in Wonderland movie, that’s set to premiere on May 27, 2016. Directed by James Bobin, it is a sequel to the last Alice movie that Tim Burton directed in 2011. It made $1 billion worldwide.
Some details were also shared about the new Jungle Book live-action, which stars Scarlett Johansson and Christopher Walken. It will premiere on April 15, 2016.
