Johnny Depp made an unexpected appearance at the D23 festival in Anaheim, California to get the buzz going about the fourth installment in the ‘Pirates’ franchise, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides,’ which will debut in 2011.

Johnny Depp appeared in full Captain Jack Sparrow attire and his presence sent the nearly 5,000 onlookers into a frenzy. Although a bit strange to say, Johnny Depp has somehow turned into the go-to-guy, and cash cow, for Disney. ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides’, ‘The Lone Ranger’ and ‘Alice in Wonderland’ are all upcoming endeavors for the Depp/Disney duo.
