Johnny Depp has been in the spotlight more often since he won the defamation case trial against his former wife, Amber Heard. As a result, people worldwide are starting to dress like his character Jack Sparrow on Halloween. Some years back, dressing as a Johnny Depp character was pretty cool for Halloween, especially since the costumes of Jack Sparrow and Willy Wonka were top sellers for the purpose. Many impersonators worldwide created a gimmick around Johnny Depp’s appearance that has gained some level of popularity.

Amber Heard fans have already started lashing out at the Pirates of the Caribbean star. However, Amber Heard is reportedly staying relatively low-key in Spain after being involved in a heavily publicized trial.

It’s A Halloween Treat For Johnny Depp

Despite Johnny Depp not portraying Jack Sparrow onscreen since 2017’s Pirates of the Caribbean 5, the world’s largest costume retailer has seen a 90% spike in Jack Sparrow costumes for this Halloween.

A surprising consequence of the constant media coverage of Depp’s defamation trial is a renewed interest in his films. That includes his Pirates movies, so Halloween parties will have more Jack Sparrows this year. As a result, Jack Sparrow costume sales hit a new high for the actor, who is already working on a return to the big screen.

According to reports, the Jack Sparrow costume outsells other popular costumes such as the Maverick flight suit from Top Gunthe witches from Hocus Pocus, and Lightyear.

In any case, it is doubtful whether Depp will become the next Jack Sparrow in the next part of Pirates of the Caribbean, but for sure, this Halloween, the majority of people will dress up as Jack Sparrow.

Depp was involved in a defamation trial with Amber Heard this year, in which he accused her of slandering him and denying him work opportunities. There was one such film, Pirates of the Caribbean, that Disney canceled. In June 2022, upon winning the lawsuit, Depp received $15 million in damages and experienced a boon in his celebrity status.

TMZ tweeted about the Halloween costume hit, which reads, “Johnny Depp Jack Sparrow Halloween costumes see huge sales spike this spooky season.”

Fans began reacting with mixed emotions after seeing this tweet. Here’s how fans are reacting:

The reaction of some fans referred to him as a ‘monster’ or a ‘wife-beater’; others, on the other hand, now see that there is a huge support for Depp after this major hit for him. Amber Heard must have heard fans slamming Depp for the Halloween costume hit, as others keep showering love on him and want him to return to Pirates of the Caribbean as Jack Sparrow.
