Paramount Pictures has provided us with the new trailer and poster for Industrial Light & Magic’s first full-length animated movie Rango. The title character is voiced by Johnny Depp. Directed by Gore Verbinski (the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films), the film also features the voices of Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin, Bill Nighy, Stephen Root, Ray Winstone, Beth Grant, Ned Beatty, Harry Dean Stanton and Alfred Molina.
“It’s the story of a chameleon with an identity crisis,” the director explains. “He fancies himself a hero and is thrust into a crazy set of circumstances where he becomes one and he has to ultimately come to terms with pretending and with what’s real because people start to believe him. He’s a contemporary character thrown into a backwards western genre, if you will.”
