Not much is known about the upcoming film other than Disney is still claiming that Johnny Depp is not attached to the project at this time and both Margot Robbie and Karen Gillan are rumored to be leading the film in Depp’s stead. Original cast members Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightley are rumored to make an appearance in the film, but this has not been confirmed by anyone within production.

With the screenplay still in the works it is unlikely we will hear any official casting news for some time. There is always a chance we will receive an update during the 2022 D23 Expo, so be sure to check back here at Chip and Company for updates and all things Disney!
