"Rango" is an animated adventure-comedy that takes moviegoers for a hilarious and heartfelt walk in the Wild West. Directed by Gore Verbinski ("The Pirates of the Caribbean"), the movie features the voices of Johnny Depp, Isla Fisher and Bill Nighy.

The story follows the comical, transformative journey of Rango (Depp), a sheltered chameleon living as an ordinary family pet. We find Rango facing a major identity crisis; after all, how high can you aim when your whole purpose in life is to blend

in? When Rango accidentally winds up in the gritty, gun-slinging town of Dirt, a lawless outpost populated by the desert's most wily and whimsical creatures, the less-than-courageous lizard suddenly stands out. Welcomed as the last hope the town has been waiting for, new Sheriff Rango is forced to play his role to the hilt, right up until Rango starts to become the hero he once only pretended to be.

With a cast that includes Depp, Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin, Alfred Molina, Bill Nighy, Harry Dean Stanton, Ray Winstone and Timothy Olyphant as the Spirit of the West, "Rango" is an exciting new twist on the classic Western legend of the outsider who saves a town, and maybe even saves himself in the process.
