Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Unlike any animated feature you've ever seen before, Rango is an utterly unique story from acclaimed director Gore Verbinski. A highly entertaining adventure, Rango marks the debut of Verbinski's production studio, Blind Wink, and is the first full-length animated feature from Industrial Light and Magic. Johnny Depp voices Rango, and is joined by a group of notable actors including Abigail Breslin, Isla Fisher, Bill Nighy, Ned Beatty, and Alfred Molina. This innovative film blends off-beat humor, eccentric characters, and a distinct visual style with the enduring heroic archetypes of the classic Western to create a wondrous cinematic experience.

Rango, like its lead character, is a film that set out one day to find itself and did, to great effect. Backed by some of the most vivid concept art produced for any animation to date, The Ballad of Rango tells its story like it is.

Synopsis:

Unlike any animated feature youve seen before, Rango is an utterly unique story from acclaimed director Gore Verbinski, and features the voice of Johnny Depp and other regulars from Verbinskis Pirates of the Caribbean films. Blending off-beat humor with a Gonzo visual style and the enduring heroic archetypes of the Western, this highly entertaining adventure marks the debut for Verbinskis production studio, BlindWink, and is the first animated feature from Industrial Light and Magic.

An actor by nature, Rango has developed a habit of trying on different guises while in his lonely cage—his head filled with dreams of being a swashbuckler, a musician, a knight, and many other leading man types. When this hapless reptile wanders into the town of Dirt, he cant help but play to his audience, assuming the role of the Western hero. Boasting of his gun-slinging prowess to the locals, he inevitably stirs up a hornets nest. Soon he finds himself at the center of action, wearing the sheriffs star and forced to take on the fearsome gunman Rattlesnake Jake.

Rango, like its lead character, is a film that set out one day to find itself and did, to great effect. Illustrated with some of the most vivid and visually creative concept art produced for any animation to date, The Ballad of Rango tells its story like it is.
