Maybe it’s his performance as Willy Wonka or the Mad Hatter that stands out to you most, but more than likely, it’s his time as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean films that you remember most. And recently, Depp stepped back into costume to play the character again!

Entertainment Weekly reports that Johnny Depp recently donned his pirate regalia once again for a very special occasion. The actor collaborated with the Make-a-Wish Foundation to surprise an 11-year-old superfan named Kori, who has a YouTube channel named “Kraken the Box.”


Depp started by sending a pre-recorded video to Kori, but then later followed up with a live video call. Throughout the videos, “Captain Jack” is completely in character, struggling with the technology and talking in his usual style.

Kori, the boy who received these videos, watched the Pirates of the Caribbean movies during his multiple heart surgeries and subsequent recovery periods. He’s a massive Jack Sparrow fan.


Currently, there are no plans for Depp to return to the Pirates franchise and reprise his role, so this may be fans’ only chance to see him don the full costume again. Depp has been a supporter of Make-a-Wish for more than 30 years.
