10 Secrets About Captain Jack Sparrow That Disney Is Hiding From You

  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is still out! Here are 10 Secrets About Captain Jack Sparrow That Disney Is Hiding From You! Subscribe to our channel: https://goo.gl/wMuSDD

    To Disney executives surprise Johnny Depp was going to be different from any other actor they’d ever dealt with because he was going to do things his own way. This included maintaining a character representation that enjoyed the company of men and was rather flamboyant. The compass that Jack Sparrow drags around with him throughout all the films also serves as a giant loophole in the film’s franchise since he’s given it away on multiple occasions and never had to suffer the repercussions as he does in Dead Men Tell No Tales. Jack Sparrow enjoys a few things like freedom, being captain of the Black Pearl, staving off death and drinking copious amount of rum. Disney has not liked the idea of Johnny Depp’s portrayal since the beginning of the film franchise but after the skillful actor earned an oscar nomination they quickly gave him creative freedom over the character for the rest of the films. Captain Jack was originally named after Hugh Jackman, but Disney decided to go in a different direction since Jackman wasn’t as popular at the time. The entire Pirates of the Caribbean idea came from a Disneyland attraction created by none other than Walt Disney himself in 1967--the ride was also Disney’s last creation before his death. Jack Sparrow impersonators have taken over the cosplay world, and they’ve also tried to threaten their way onto filming sets with the real Jack Sparrow. No one truly knows how old Jack Sparrow is, and perhaps that’s for the best. After all, age is just a number and Jack Sparrow knows how to have a good time and cause a ruckus. When we say Johnny Depp has creative freedom, we mean he’s allowed to do whatever he wants including scoring Keith Richards to be cast as his father in the Pirates of the Caribbean films. It’s not far-fetched to say that Jack Sparrow is clinically insane--if he were a real person we’re sure that he would be hauled off to an insanity ward where he could replay his hallucinations and listen to the voices in his head all day.

    Man that saves people and feels good about it! Who would you choose a girl or a old man and they both hate you as you have to save one? Jack also smiled at the end of the world as he saved a friend and he saved Jack!

    The compass also contradicts what Tia Dalma says in the second movie "The compass you bartered from me" I liked the fifth movie but that backstory contradicted just about everything in PotC canon

    Newest movie plothole INCLUDE SPOILER:

    Barbossa jumps down to kill the "pirate hunter" with a sword, but doesnt all our characters usually wear guns? Could have shot him? And the "pirate hunter" wasnt even mad at Jack anymore, the "pirate hunter" had become a real human being again...

    The reason that the compass doesn't feel betrayed before dead men tell no tales is because every time Jack gives it to someone, he always expect to be able to get it back, never actually giving it to someone, always lending; in DMTNT, he gives it away for good, betraying the compass's trust to always return to him until his death.

    I'm a gay man and am against these constant claims that Jack is gay just because he's flamboyant.
    I'm a very stereotypical straight man full of machismo in behavior in spite of me actually being homosexual.
    Furthermore; Johnny Depp's claims that all of his characters are may have been sass.
    Unicorns don't have to be gay and sometimes dragons are. Asshole.

  • losangelescardinals

    Jack is really not a pirate but a former ship captain who used to work under Beckett. He was later branded, physically and figuratively, as a pirate after he released a cargo of slaves

    • jamie wagemaker
      jamie wagemaker 3 days ago

      losangelescardinals yes, but before that he was a pirate. he was born in a storm, became pirate, started working for becket, betrayed him by letting 100 slaves free, becket burned the wicked wench (jacks ship) jack tried to safe it but burned with the ship. then davy jones gave him the deal. thats why davy jones in deadmans chest says that jacks soul is worth a 100 men. this is the reason why jacks ship became black. he renamed it the black pearl. after 2 years there was a mutiny (caused by barbossa) and i guess you know the rest of the story. the scene where jack is young in dead men tell no tales is probally in a time before jack started working for becket.

    • Poni Mele
      Poni Mele 3 days ago

      Wookie Productions Do u not know what Bi means? Bisexual means u like both genders, Meaning there is a 50-50 chance that u would end up with the opposite sex or the same sex, meaning it would still be possible for all of Depp's characters to flirt with females and get with females because he has feelings for both Genders not just one.

    • Wookie Productions
      Wookie Productions 3 days ago

      Poni Mele I don't think he's bi I just think he's straight there is no evidence to this and that thing johnny said was a joke to make Gore Verbinski mad, I don't think any of Johnny's characters are gay most of them have been married or have slept with women and only women there is no mention that he has ever been with a guy.

  • Sparrow's Nest
    Sparrow's Nest 3 days ago

    The round red scar on his bottom right jaw is syphilis. JACK was named after his uncle and his real name is Jack Teague, but He wanted to stand out from his uncle and father so he took on the name Sparrow after Taunting the great Pirate Hunter Armando Salazar in the crows nest like some little bird. The emerald skull ring Jack is always wearing is a ring that he stole from his father and has the power to bring good luck, but only when it is most needed like a life or death situation.

    • Sparrow's Nest

      Super Popo its a good theory but this must have happend after they returned to the Island because she gave birth to Jack during a typhoon on Teagues ship.0

    • Super Popo
      Super Popo 13 hours ago

      Sparrow's Nest I found more info. There is a theory that Jack's mother is a native, or one of the people from cannibal island. Teague made love with her, and tried to escape with her.
      When her island captured her, they punished her by beheading her and shrinking her head.
      Head shrinking is a spiritual thing, and is practiced by natives.

    • Sparrow's Nest
      Sparrow's Nest 1 day ago

      Super Popo From my research she had to be verry special to Teague because she was on board his ship when she gave birth during a typhoon. She also had to be adventurous because at some point she gets her head shrunken and the tribes that practiced this layed deep in the Jungle. But alas she is still a mystery so is Wills mother but by the way the book series was going its safe to assume it is Arabella Smith.

      Yes, they "little" changed story... And they made from Jack really drunken and embarrassing old pirate. Also story of POTC 5 is weak. :( They made POTC 5 too pretentious but script and story is low... Maybe close the Turners story is consistent. But sliver? Neither many expensive effects and location never made from POTC 5 really good story like "old good POTC 1-3". Still POTC 4 is good but 5 isn't. In my opinion POTC 5 is the worst of series.

      he might have lost it and got it back from Tia (lets imagine someone took it from him and by magic it made its way to her) or he could have gotten the compass for his captain that then passed it over to him (popular theory)

    I have a theory that Jack Sparrow is and 'idea' rather than an actual character. He is immortal and undying because he is not real, well, not entirely. Like the 'Jack of Fables' (i.e. Jack the giant slayer, Jack and the beanstalk, Jack frost, etc.) Sparrow is just a man pirates credit as the adventurer who accomplished all these great feats. When in reality, Jack is many different people doing different things.
