Where were you when you first learned that Orlando Bloom would once again return to the high seas in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise? If you’re wondering about the date, it was August 15, 2015, when this major announcement was made at Disney’s’ 2015 D23 Expo. Fast forward to summer 2017, and we’ve got Will Turner back!
Well, we’ve got cursed Will Turner, because Davy Jones’ curses can be so fickle.
Now, if you thought you were pretty damn excited to see the pirate again (curse or no curse), you were probably only half as excited as Bloom. His Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales co-star, Kaya Scodelario, said that on set, Bloom was the friendliest guy — and also clearly stoked to be back.
Anyone else crying (sea salty) tears because that’s so sweet to hear?
There’s no word (yet) on a sixth Pirates movie, but we’re hopeful. And somewhere, Bloom probably is hopeful, too. If you’re ready to relive the adventure again, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is now out on Blu-ray, DVD, and HD Digital download.
