A Facebook user named Abby Keelin posted the photos and wrote, “We have lived on our street for over 4 years and have always heard about Johnny Depp growing up here. However, we have never seen him so I have always wondered if it was even true. Last night my kids were hanging out down the street at a friends house and Johnny Depp showed up!!”

“He was kind enough to walk across the street and get a picture made with all the kids and neighbors. His dad and his aunt and uncle all have a house on our street and he was here visiting.  He was very kind but Job pointed out to me that he doesn’t look like the guy off Edward Scissorhands that we watched last week! PS….He isn’t in the neighborhood anymore,” Keelin added.

The ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore’ actor’s quick stop at Owensboro came after an insider claimed that Depp will return to work with Disney. The source reportedly said, “Disney are very interested in patching up their relationship with Johnny Depp. They reached out to the actor prior to his defamation trial against Amber Heard and asked whether he would be interested in returning for another Pirates film or two.”

“I know corporate sent him a gift basket with a very heartfelt letter, but I’m unsure how it was received. But what I can tell you is that the studio has already penned up a draft for a film about Jack Sparrow — so they are very hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as his iconic character,” the source added.

Disney had broken ties with Depp after his former wife Amber Heard wrote a piece for Washington Post, claiming herself to be a domestic violence survivor. Though the actress had not named him in the op-ed, his legal team accused Heard of defamation, which also led to the infamous 2022 trial at a Virginia court.
