A new trailer for the animated flick Rango has gone online. Directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean), the film features the voice of Johnny Depp as the title character, a chameleon who becomes the unlikely hero of a Wild West-type village after he accidentally slays a hawk. While I previously didn’t have much interest in the film, this trailer made me chuckle and it looks like it could be a fun little movie.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Rango also stars the voices of Alanna Ubach, Abigail Breslin, Isla Fisher, and Alfred Molina. The film opens March 18th.
