RangoReleased two years ago today, and last year’s win­ner of the Acad­emy Award for best fea­ture ani­mated film, the car­toon oif the day is Rango. Directed by Gore Verbin­ski and star­ring Johnny Depp– wow, that sounds like a cou­ple of pirate films we know– this styl­ish west­ern was on the tops of many lists last year. Let us know what you thought of this one.

A comedy-adventure that takes movie­go­ers for a hilar­i­ous and heart­felt walk in the Wild West. The story fol­lows the com­i­cal, trans­for­ma­tive jour­ney of Rango, a shel­tered chameleon liv­ing as an ordi­nary fam­ily pet while 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 finds that he stands out. Wel­comed as the last hope the town has been wait­ing for, new Sher­iff Rango is forced to play his new role to the hilt… until, in a blaze of action-packed sit­u­a­tions and encoun­ters with out­ra­geous char­ac­ters, Rango starts to become the hero he once only pre­tended to be.

Rango is an excit­ing new twist on the clas­sic West­ern leg­end of the out­sider who saves a town, and him­self in the process.

Release date is that of Los Ange­les pre­miere; gen­eral release date was March 4, 2011.

The first ani­mated fea­ture film for award-winning spe­cial effects house Indus­trial Light & Magic (ILM).
