Johnny Depp is a chameleon with regard to his acting roles, but in the animated hit Rango
he plays the titular chameleon who inadvertently becomes the sheriff of a lawless desert town called Dirt. Unlike popular films by Pixar that aim young and rely heavily on Hallmark sentimentalism, Rango
is smart and includes some sly adult humor such as a reference to Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
. The film—directed by Pirates of the Caribbean
's Gore Verbinski—also features the voices of Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin, Alfred Molina, Harry Dean Stanton, Ray Winstone and Timothy Olyphant.
Rango will mosey onto DVD and Blu-ray on July 15 with both the theatrical version and an extended cut included. Both the DVD and Blu-ray will contain a commentary track, "Real Creatures of Dirt" and deleted scenes. Blu-ray exclusives include "Breaking the Rules: Making Animation History," "A Field Trip to Dirt," a storyboard reel picture-in-picture functionality and an interactive field trip to Dirt that lets users interact with the characters they want to while discovering trivia and bonus footage along the way.
