Surprise, Bitch! Keira Knightley Is Returning To “Pirates Of The Caribbean”

1. The last time we saw Elizabeth Swann was a decade ago (YES, it’s been that long) in the franchise’s third installment,
Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.

Both Keira and Orlando were NOT in the last/fourth film, On Stranger Tides.

2. And while we knew Orlando Bloom would be reprising his role as Will Turner for the latest and fifth installment, Dead Men Tell No Tales, it had only been a rumor that Keira MIGHT return, too.

In fact, she had straight up said she wouldn’t return to the franchise in the past.

3. But the new Japanese trailer just confirmed that, yeah, Elizabeth Swann will make an appearance in full corseted-gloriousness. And you can check out that brief AF shot here:

4. I have ZERO idea what’s happening in this clip, but it seems like a dream sequence?!

5. Which begs the question – what is Elizabeth’s fate in this film? Will is clearly going to be running around with their lovely spawn, Henry, but…will Pirates play ye olde Disney trope of the dead mother?

Or maybe Elizabeth decided to give up the pirate’s life and embrace colonial life?!

6. Guess we’ll find out soon. May 26 can’t get here soon enough!
