It appears Keira Knightley is no longer disinclined to acquiesce to our request that she join the crew of "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales."
A new international trailer for the fifth "Pirates" movie just came out, and most of it is recycled from what we've seen before. But about a minute into the action, we see a brief but definitive shot of (former captain in her own right, never forget) Elizabeth Swann Turner.
Our poppet still looks gorgeous. Elizabeth's true love, Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), is also returning for this movie, and he was first seen in a recent TV spot. Elizabeth and Will sat out the fourth movie, "On Stranger Tides," after ending "At World's End" with the promise of a reunion. Will became the captain of the Flying Dutchman, separating him from Elizabeth for a decade, but a post-credits scene showed Will sailing to an island to be reunited with Miss Swann and their son.
It's possible this one shot of Elizabeth in the new trailer is about all we'll get in "Pirates 5." According to a TooFab report from December 2016, Knightley's return is a "small cameo during the end credits" and "apparently hints to a potential larger role in the sixth 'Pirates' movie."
"Dead Men Tell No Tales" will follow Elizabeth and Will's now older son, Henry (Brenton Thwaites), who searches for answers about his father, with help from Carina (Kaya Scodelario) and Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp).
"Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" arrives in theaters May 26.
