Johnny Depp, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Disney Enterprises

People love non-Mortdecai Johnny Depp, and people love Disney!

Now that Disney has confirmed Johnny's director BFF Tim Burton is taking on Dumbo, the Internet has immediately followed up with: Who will Johnny play?!

He's taken on over a half-dozen Disney films, plus he's constantly collaborating with Tim Burton— so naturally we can't imagine the film without him!

 

Granted, the reimagining of Dumbo will be live-action, not another classic cartoon, but this news got us thinking...what would Human Chameleon and Master Thesbian Johnny Depp look like as some of Disney's most iconic characters?

If he can make us believe Captain Jack Sparrow is interesting enough for five films, he's certainly talented enough to make us believe he's Simba the lion cub!

This is what we would like to see from him next...
