The last few months have been a whirlwind for Johnny Depp.

The current trial of Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard has been unfolding in front of our eyes on a daily basis over the course of the last few weeks.

The trial stems from ex-wife Amber Heard’s bombshells (aquaman) alleging that Johnny Depp (Sweeney Todd, Edward Scissorhands) physically assaulted the actress numerous times throughout their rocky marriage, Hollwyood blacklisted Depp. The Walt Disney Company reportedly turned its back on its beloved Captain Jack Sparrow before Johnny Depp could publicly defend her name. Heard’s op-ed with the Sun it also cost Depp his role in the fantastic beasts franchise like Gellert Grindelwald to Mads Mikkelsen.

As the ongoing trial unfolded, many fans came to Johnny Depp’s defense, sharing their support for the actor, who also starred in several other blockbuster movies, including Public Enemies (2009), Willy Wonka (2005), ed wood (1994), Alice in Wonderland (2010), and many others. But that didn’t stop Disney from replacing Depp with Margot Robbie in the latest pirates of the Caribbean delivery and apparently hasn’t stopped all of Hollywood from staying away from the actor.

The official IMDb synopsis reads:

โ€œLydia Deetz (Winona Ryder) is courted by the charming Jersey Devil, despite being married to a struggling real estate agent (David Harbour). Through wacky settings and ecstatic characters, the fun never stops. While entertaining, it’s also a heartbreaking story that shows Beetlejuice is just another man trying to find his way in the world. The story also advances the idea that a family is never really ideal. The story continues when you say the release date three times in a row.โ€
