Jack Sparrow on TV


Johnny Depp’s Pirates Of The Caribbean character Jack Sparrow will feature in a new television series. Disney is reportedly planning to make a TV spin-off of the swashbuckling franchise with Sparrow as its main character.

A source told British newspaper The Daily Star, “The idea is that we focus on a much younger Jack Sparrow and show fans how he became a famous pirate. The film has been a success with spin-offs like toys, video games and books, it only seems right to do a TV series.”

It is hoped high profile celebrities will provide the voiceover for the series. The source adds, “Since the film attracted guests like Keith Richards, you can imagine the stars who will want to pop up in.”
