Must Watch: First Teaser for Johnny Depp's Animated Rango
Paramount has debuted the first teaser trailer for Gore Verbinski's Rango on Apple today. Yesterday we unveiled the first poster and reveal of the chameleon Rango, as voiced by Johnny Depp. The voice cast also includes Abigail Breslin, Bill Nighy, Isla Fisher, Alfred Molina and Ray Winstone. Those mariacha owls actually show up all the time and sometimes break the fourth wall and look like they'll be a lot of fun. I'm really looking forward to this, it actually looks pretty good, and it's ILM's first ever full-length animated feature. Check out the first teaser trailer below and stick around for an alternate version a bit later. Enjoy!

Update: Paramount has also provided us with a second slightly different version of the same teaser trailer as a participant in the press event yesterday. I've added that other teaser below for your viewing pleasure!
Watch the second slightly diff teaser for Gore Verbinski's Rango:
Rango is being directed by filmmaker Gore Verbinski, of The Mexican, The Ring, The Weather Man, and all three Pirates of the Caribbean movies. The script was written by John Logan (Gladiator, The Last Samurai, The Aviator, Sweeney Todd) based on a story by Verbinski and James Ward Byrkit. ILM is animating using "cutting edge techniques" that "allow [them] to capture and translate every aspect of Johnny's performance, using it to drive the computer-generated character in a way that has yet to be seen." Paramount is bringing Rango to theaters on March 4th, 2011 next spring. Visit the official website as well: RangoMovie.com.
