Disney’s The Lone Ranger is the first version of “The Lone Ranger” in any medium in which the actor playing Tonto receives top billing.
The “frame story” where young Will meets the old Tonto in The Lone Ranger takes place in 1933, the year of the first Lone Ranger radio broadcast.
Johnny Depp's makeup and costume in The Lone Ranger were inspired by artist Kirby Sattler’s painting “I am Crow”.
The Lone Ranger comments that it has been 9 years since he last fired his gun. Disney’s The Lone Ranger was shot in 2012, 9 years since The Lone Ranger's most recent TV appearance.
The Lone Ranger was the first film to feature both Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter that is not directed by Tim Burton.
Tonto, from The Lone Ranger, means “fool” in Spanish. In Spanish versions of this film, Tonto is renamed Toro, which means “bull”.
In an interview for The Lone Ranger, Johnny Depp thanked his stunt horse, Scout, for saving his life after a violent fall during filming. After Scout dragged Depp 25 feet, Scout jumped over him to avoid stepping on him. A clip of the fall shows the horse clearly jumping over Depp, and detaching him from the saddle. Depp suffered only minor bruises and scrapes, but says it could have been a lot worse if the horse had stepped on him.
The Lone Ranger Summary:
In the 1930s, an elderly Tonto tells a young boy the tale of John Reid, the Lone Ranger. An idealistic lawyer, he rides with his brother and fellow Texas Rangers in pursuit of the notorious Butch Cavendish. Ambushed by the outlaw and left for dead, John Reid is rescued by the renegade Comanche, Tonto, at the insistence of a mysterious white horse and offers to help him to bring Cavendish to justice. Becoming a reluctant masked rider with a seemingly incomprehensible partner, Reid pursues the criminal against all obstacles. However, John and Tonto learn that Cavendish is only part of a far greater injustice and the pair must fight it in an adventure that would make them a legend.
