The first trailer for Gore Verbinksi‘s new animated movie Rango has been released online. The movie features Johnny Depp in the lead role, a lizard named Rango who’s struggling with an identity crisis.
This is just a teaser trailer, but you’ll get a good feel of the movie. The animation is solid and you’ll hear a little of the not-so-Johnny-Depp-sounding lizard.
The thing that will really stand out to some fans is the nod to Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and the famed author Hunter S. Thompson. Depp played a Thompson-esq character in Fear and Loathing, and will again in the upcoming book adaptation, The Rum Diaries.
