As huge fans of the Pirates of The Caribbean, we were ecstatic to hear Orlando Bloom will be returning to the seven seas as Will Turner in the fifth instalment of the franchise: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

The news broke during the Disney D23 Expo that happened over the weekend in California, where Johnny Depp turned up dressed as his Jack Sparrow character.

Dead Men Tell No Tales will focus on the increasingly eccentric Jack Sparrow, who finds himself in a tight spot when ghost pirates led by Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem) escape from the Devil's Triangle. The pirates are bent on killing every other pirate at sea, including Jack.

His only solution for survival is to seek out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, an ancient artefact that allows the possessor control over the seas.

Besides Orlando and Johnny, actor Geoffrey Rush and franchise newcomers Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario are set to join the film, which is slated for release on 7 July 2017.
