The release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is getting closer and now it has been revealed that the original trio will be back together for this fifth installment of the franchise!
It has been rumored for a while that Knightley would reprise her role as Elisabeth Swan in Pirates of the Caribbean 5 but it took until today in an international trailer in Japanese for it to become confirmed. For a while, it seemed like Disney would keep this a secret all the way up until release but in the end, they decided to spoil it themselves, and I have to say, the Japanese trailer they spoiled it in makes the film sound much cooler than the English one. Check out the trailer bellow and see for yourself.
The extent of Knightley's involvement in Pirates 5 is however still a secret, the rumors now have it that she will appear in an end credit scene with Orlando Bloom, a scene which will hint about a much larger role in a potential sixth movie. There has also been no confirmation if the whole original trio will appear in a scene together, we will just have to wait and see, or hear about it in an inevitable leak.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is scheduled to set sail on May 26 and the full crew of the original film will be back once again, but maybe for just a minute, but still!
