Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales: Orlando Bloom Returns

     Walt Disney Studios at the D23 Expo has released a little more information about the 5th installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise as the day's show cap.  Of course, making it a much more effective was the fact Johnny Depp was there in character as the perpetually-entertaining Captain Jack Sparrow.

     First they showed the new logo (see pic) and then gave a synopsis:
     "Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. 
     Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas."
     ...and lastly, they announced the return of Orlando Bloom's character Will Turner.

     What was not stated was a time frame of the film.  Could Turner still be holding the mantle that Davy Jones once did, as Captain of the Flying Dutchman, and have the supernatural powers to aid an old friend?  And in the Devil's Triangle (the Bermuda Triangle?) of all places.
     It's been rumored that Turner's son might be looking to reconnect with his father, which is tough when Davy Jones may only set foot on land once every 10 years, and the last time we saw his son he was 10 years old.  The pirate's life is a tough one.
     No word yet if Kiera Knightley will reprise her role as Elizabeth Swann.

     Although, one other fan-favorite cast member is on board- Geoffrey "Hector Barbossa" Rush.

     So far, it sounds better than I was expecting.

     Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will arrive in theaters July 7th, 2017.
