Disney has released a new featurette for The Lone Ranger. The story focuses on John Reid (Armie Hammer) surviving an attack, being saved by Native American warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp), and the two teaming up to fight injustice. The new featurette focuses on the “cowboy bootcamp” where Hammer and co-star Ruth Wilson had to learn how to ride horses and lasso chairs. The former might be more important than the latter. Depp is nowhere to be seen, so either he went to Native American bootcamp, or innately knows how to ride a horse and throw a loop of rope over furniture.
Hit the jump to check out the featurette. The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, and Helena Bonham Carter. The Lone Ranger opens July 3rd.
