Johnny Depp's Pirates of the Caribbean character Jack Sparrow will be featured in a new television series.

Disney is reportedly planning to make a TV spin-off of the swashbuckling franchise with Sparrow as its main character.

A source tells British newspaper The Daily Star, "The idea is that we focus on a much younger Jack Sparrow and show fans how he became a famous pirate.

"The film has been such a success with spin-offs such as toys and video games and books, it only seems right to do a TV series."

It is hoped a host of high-profile celebrities will provide the voiceover for the series. The source adds, "Since the film attracted guests like Keith Richards, you can imagine the stars who will want to pop up in the television show."
