The person who returns to Disney’s long-running saga is Ted Elliott, co-writer of the first four films and also creator of the legendary characters – such as Elizabeth (Keira Knightley), Will (Orlando Bloom) and the protagonist, of course. Bruckheimer confirmed the news in an interview with the website. comicbook.com:

The actor had been fired from the saga due to allegations of physical and verbal abuse made by Amber since 2017, when the couple announced their separation and started the controversy that would result in this year’s trial.
