HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (May 10, 2011) - Called "the coolest, orneriest, funniest, best-looking movie" (Richard Corliss, Time) that is "like nothing you've ever seen" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), the hilarious and imaginative RANGO saddles up in a Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack with Digital Copy and on standard DVD on Friday, July 15, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment. The incomparable Johnny Depp voices Rango, a chameleon living as an ordinary family pet that dreams of being a fearless hero and is challenged to become just that when he inadvertently becomes the sheriff of a lawless desert town called Dirt. Depp reteams with director Gore Verbinski, the visionary behind the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, in this wildly original comedy, which delighted audiences of all ages, earning more than $120 million domestically to become the #1 animated film of the year. The film also features the voices of Isla Fisher (Horton Hears A Who!), Abigail Breslin (Kit Kittredge: An American Girl), Ned Beatty (Toy Story 3), Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2), Bill Nighy (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End), Harry Dean Stanton, ("Big Love"), Ray Winstone (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) and Timothy Olyphant ("Justified").
