Disney is buzzing with the latest scoop on the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ reboot, and it looks like Ayo Edebiri from ‘The Bear’ is in the spotlight to lead the new adventure. Fans are thrilled at the thought of Edebiri, who wowed audiences as chef Sydney Adamu, taking the helm as Anne, a young pirate on a quest for treasure.
The word around town, thanks to insider Daniel Richtman, is that Disney’s got a fresh take for the Pirates saga, aiming for a female-led narrative. Edebiri’s not just a one-hit wonder; her roles in ‘Theater Camp,’ ‘Bottoms,’ and her voice work in ‘Big Mouth’ and ‘Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’ show she’s got the range for this.

But wait, there’s more! Craig Mazin, the brain behind ‘The Last of Us,’ might just be steering this ship. His knack for storytelling has fans eager to see what twists and turns lie ahead for our new band of pirates. And with Ted Elliot, who penned the first four Pirates movies, crafting the script, expectations are sky-high.
Now, here’s a wild card – a Pirates and Haunted Mansion crossover. Imagine the worlds colliding in a cinematic spectacle. Director Justin Simien has hinted at the possibility, and it’s got us thinking about the endless adventures that could unfold.
Disney’s been trying to find its sea legs with the Pirates franchise after Johnny Depp’s exit and some bumps along the road. But with a legacy of blockbuster hits and a universe that’s expanded into games and theme park rides, the anticipation for this reboot is real.
Keep your eyes peeled for more updates, as the sixth installment doesn’t have a release date yet. But one thing’s for sure, with Edebiri potentially on board and a treasure chest of ideas, we’re in for a thrilling voyage.
