D23: Watch Johnny Depp Surprise Fans as Jack Sparrow for ‘Pirates 5’

Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil's Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea...Including him. Captain Jack's only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas. Production on this action-adventure started in Australia back in February, with principal photography wrapping just last month.

Disney also revealed the logo for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales along with some very exciting casting news. It was confirmed that the upcoming Pirates 5 will indeed bring back Orlando Bloom as Will Turner. Orlando Bloom's return as Will Turner was first rumored back in September 2014, but today's presentation was the first confirmation we have that he will be back in this sequel. He starred as Will Turner in the first three adventures, 2003's Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl, 2006's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and 2007's Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.

‘Hobbit 3’ Poster Brings Legolas Into Battle

‘Hobbit 3’ Poster Brings Legolas Into Battle

Following the poster reveals for Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman), Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) and Galadriel (Cate Blanchett) earlier this week, fans have voted for Orlando Bloom's Legolas to be featured on the latest character poster from The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies.

Although Legloas does not appear in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit novel, Orlando Bloom's archer elf Legolas returned in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, in a significant role as the son of Elven king Thranduil (Lee Pace) in their Mirkwood realm. Fittingly, last year's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug showcased Legolas' burgeoning relationship with another character who was not in the original novel and created specifically for the movie, Evangeline Lilly's Tauriel.

Orlando Bloom May Return for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5’

Orlando Bloom May Return for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5’

While Orlando Bloom, who starred as Will Turner, helped turn Pirates of the Caribbean into one of cinema's biggest franchises, starting with Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of The Black Pearl in 2003 and continuing on in 2006's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and 2007's Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, the actor was suspiciously absent from Disney's 2011 adventure Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. That may not be the case with Pirates of the Caribbean 5 (tentatively titled Dead Men Tell No Tales), as the actor reveals he's had discussions about returning, and is open to the idea.

If he does return for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, it will be the second big franchise that Orlando Bloom has come back to. He reprised his Legolas role from Lord of the Rings in last year's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and will once again play the archer elf in this December's The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies.
