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

    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.

    Why does anyone care if jack is gay or not.. it doesn’t play any role in the movies

    Speaking of compass plot holes, Tia Dalma says she gave Jack the compass (this is in Dead Man’s Chest)

    Wasn’t the compass given to Jack in the second movie? Calipso ask Jack if he still has the compass he bartered from her.

    Real Jack Sparrow actually converted to Islam and changed his name to *Yousef Reis* and lived his rest of his life in Tunisia where he was nicknamed *Arsuf* by the local which means 'Sparrow' because he use to keep small sparrows.

    the reason I've thought of the compass not feeling betrayed is because until DMTNT, Jack always expected to get it back at some point in the near future, it's only when he sold it for Rum that it felt betrayed.
    The PotC wikia has explained the plothole of Jack getting the compass from Tia Dalma is that he got it from her and then gave it to his captain as tribute.
    I think now that he has the Black Pearl back and his luck is turning back to good (although throughout the whole series it's been rather dreadful) he won't be quite so dependent on rum and be more like his old self, and so long as the story for no. 6 is a goodun the pearl doesn't get damaged or sunk anymore (the poor old girl's suffered enough) I'd be happy for the series to continue

    Johnny Depp once joked that all of his characters are gay; I don't think that was meant to be taken so seriously. Jack is definitely not gay; he's a womanizer for crying out loud. He does his best to sleep with every pretty girl he comes across. People in the comments are saying he could be bi; maybe, but I don't see evidence of that either. I guess it just comes down to personal opinion...

    Look I don’t think these type of videos should be put out since one, it could possibly ruin actors careers because your stating you opinion about whether the actor should have played that characters role or not and two, it’s not your place to judge the characters. I honestly love Johnny depp and he’s the reason why I’m making my own movies and I still want to make one with him and just about any video kids like me would lose hope as the actors lose hope because of your stupid videos.
    Sorry but you should get rid of them if you want an amazing future

    The Compass was only disrespected when he gave it away for rum, but he was giving it away for a good purpose when he gave to will and barbosa etc. because they where fellow pirates using it for a good pirate-y cause

  • Anne Hope

    To be fair, Captain Jack Sparrow was't really sane even *before* Davy Jones' Locker - otherwise many of his ideas wouldn't have had even the *slightest* chance of working. He alredy was a mad genius.
    But after getting sent to the Locker, where
    1) there wasn't *anyone* to keep him company (beside himself, that is), and its a svientifically proven fact, that humans are social creatures and thus *need* company
    and 2) was seperated from the sea that he loved *so* *much*
    Anyone would go over the deep end under these circumstances.

    Disney can be so vanilla. People are what they are; show it, embrace it. Don't lie to kids, 'cause in the end they're way smarter than what we give them credit for. Jack is drunk most of the time? yeah, deal with it. Leave the old 50's imaginary behind (although they actually produced Treasure Island and had no problem whatsover with Long John Silver's character).

      Willy Wonka seems kinda asexual to me... the 'femininity' he may have could come from imitating Michael Jackson, whom Johnny said was an inspiration for the role.

    Actually, Ive heard Jack is in his late thirties or early forties.
    And for me that makes sence if you think of how old he was when he got the pearl and the made the deal with davy jone.

    • Clara Vaccari
      Clara Vaccari Month ago

      Yeah and besides, I don't think that many pirates could live longer lives. If you think about it, they were exposed to injuries, desease, weather changes and all and they couldn't easily afford medicine most of the times (it was the 18th century, so anyway... medicine wasn't really effective back then).

  • Jack Frost

    Johnny Depp patterned Jack Sparrow after Keith Richards not only because of the correlation of rock stars and pirates but because he and Richards are, and have been for years, friends. They became so when Johnny became friends with Richards son, while he was working on 21 Jump Street. The two, Depp and Richards' son, were classmates.

  • Mateo Pino

    About Jacks compass, there is another plot hole. In number 5 "Dead men tell no tales" we see that Jack gets his compass from his old captain who died. However in number 2 "A Dead Mans Chest" when Jack is looking for the heart he goes to visit Tiadoma who asks him, "the compass that you borrowed from me, it cannot lead you to this?" Which implies that he got the compass from her and raises the question where did jack get the compass?

    • Clara Vaccari
      Clara Vaccari Month ago

      No! please don't associate being gay to being exuberant. They are two different things. They can sometimes be mixed together, but they don't always have to be. The Mad Hatter wasn't thought (I believe) by Lewis Carroll to be gay, asexual, heterosexual or else. He's a creation from a little girl's imagination... how could he have a well thought sexuality?

    Well, if Disney knew that pirates often drank rum because they didn't want to drink bacteria-infested water, and were actually quite ethical and logical, then maybe they'd know that Jack Sparrow is mildly accurate.

    • Clara Vaccari

    another plot hole on the compass, is that in dead man's chest tia dalma/calypso asks "doesn't the compass *I gave you* work?" or something like that. and then in zalazar's revenge he gets it from the captain you mensioned
    (also btw don't care of possible writing errors, i'm not english...)
