“Animated characters can get away with things that we can’t,” he told the judges. “Captain Jack Sparrow can do things I could never do. He could say things I could never say. So for me it was an opportunity to expand a character’s parameters and take a risk in the process.

“But if it worked and I felt like I was on a pretty good mission, I thought it might be a character that would be accepted by five-year-olds and 45-year-olds, 65-year-olds and 85-year-olds on the same way as Bugs Bunny,” he continued.

Speaking of his first reaction to that Pirates of the Caribbean Speaking of the script, Depp said, “I thought it had all the hallmarks of a Disney film — that is, sort of a predictable three-act structure. The character of Captain Jack was more like a shirtless swashbuckler guy who would swing in and be the hero.

“I had very different ideas about the character, so I incorporated my notes [the] character and brought that character to life. Much to Disney’s dismay at first.”

“I did not see it. But I think the film seemed to do pretty well, and they wanted to keep doing more, and I was fine with that,” he said. “It’s not like you become that person, but if you know that character as well as I do – because he wasn’t what the writers wrote, they really couldn’t write for him… If you know the character better than the writers, then you have to be true to the character and add your own words.”
