Keira Knightley considers her character’s future return Pirates of the Caribbean continuation. Knightley has portrayed Elizabeth Swann since 2003 Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. He starred alongside Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom in the next two series, which saw his character transform into a particularly gifted robber and rip off a damsel in distress. Elizabeth was last seen in 2017 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Taleswhere he made a brief appearance.


When talking to ET at the premiere of his new film The Boston Strangler, Asked about Knightley Elizabeth Swann’s potential return Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. The question was prompted by Jerry Bruckheimer’s recent comments about his desire to return to the series with Depp. Knightley responded by asking: “What about Elizabeth Swann?” Then he was pleased to let the hero go, saying: “I mean, it sailed very nicely. It sailed in great style.”

What’s next for the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise?

Since the franchise debuted in 2003 Pirates of the Caribbean produced five films in the series. While the budgets may have been exorbitant, the franchise has proven to be profitable at the box office. To the present day, the Pirates of the Caribbean movies has grossed more than $4.5 billion worldwide, while also generating huge amounts of merchandising and characters like Jack Sparrow, who are now firmly entrenched in pop culture.

With success on this scale, it’s no surprise that Bruckheimer is interested in producing more sequels. Depp starred in the last two entries in the series, but his legal troubles with ex-wife Amber Heard left his career in turmoil. As a result, the actor lost several roles Pirates of the CaribbeanIts future remains uncertain without its biggest star. However, Bruckheimer has commented that he is willing to bring Depp back for a sixth film.

Still, Knightley seems content not to return. If Knightley opts out, Bloom may do the same, given their characters’ love story. So perhaps the future of the franchise lies with Depp or attempting a reboot or spin-off, which could be very difficult. Like comments about I want Depp back, Bruckheimer also noted that the sixth installment will feature a younger cast. Additionally, a spinoff involving Margot Robbie is still in development. Therefore, although Knightly wanted to finish the job, Pirates of the Caribbean is far from over.
