Oh man, this is bromance on another level.
On so many levels, it’d take 2 worlds to collide and then come together to sign an agreement of some sort.
One of the most highly circulated piece of news from the recent Disney D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Centre is not just all the tips, tricks, and surprises that Disney has up its sleeve for its movie slate. It is not just the awesome Disney Pixar panels that featured some of the best filmmakers (read: Pete Docter). It is not the breathtaking Disney fandom that exists and is still continuing to grow at lightning speed.
Said to be one of the best photos from the expo, Johnny Depp turned up at the convention in full costume as the rum-loving captain to promote “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales“. As if seeing Johnny in his Jack Sparrow swag wasn’t enough for Disney fans, he stumbles offstage and has his picture taken with “Star Wars” actor Harrison Ford.
Harrison Ford, who plays Han Solo, was at the expo to promote the upcoming “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” film with director J.J. Abrams and fellow castmates John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, and Lupita Nyong’o. But really, who cares about that when there’s a picture of the both Han Solo (the one and only!) and Jack Sparrow deep in conversation, with Jack Sparrow’s arm draped delicately over Han Solo’s shoulder?
Our worlds just collided in the most major way possible. So let’s take a moment to just soak that in while uncontrollably shrieking and geeking out deep down inside.
No one has to know ;)
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” will be released on 18th December 2015 while “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is set to hit cinemas on 7th July 2017.
