Press Pass LA was front and center at the “happiest place on Earth,” the coveted The Lone Ranger Premiere which took place at Disney’s California Adventure theme park! Hundreds of screaming fans gathered down Buena Vista Street for a chance to spot stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer and take photos with the infamous Lone Ranger Locomotive from the film that was on display.
We had the opportunity to speak to The Lone Ranger himself, Armie Hammer about his preparation for the role and what it was like to work with Johnny Depp who portrays Tonto. We also spoke with cast members Robert Baker (Navarro), Ruth Wilson (Rebecca Reid), and screenwriter Justin Haythe, as well as members of the Native American community who advised on and acted in the film.
Celebrity attendees that chatted with us included Marissa Winokur (Melissa & Joey), Gilles Marini (Switched at Birth), Charisma Carpenter (Lying Game), Karina Smirnoff & Sharna Burgess (of Dancing with the Stars), Derek Theler (Babby Daddy) and newcomer Dove Cameron (star of Disney’s upcoming show Liv & Maddie).
The film is directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer films. We can not wait for fans to begin this adventure when it opens nationwide July 3rd.
Watch the trailer.
