Disney has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for director Gore Verbinski’s upcoming film 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. This new featurette chronicles the heavy location-based production, as we see the enormous lengths to which Verbinski went in order to make the majority of The Lone Ranger practically. In fact, this featurette shows Depp falling completely off of his horse mid-stride during a stunt, and we get a look at the actor’s bruising that occurred as a result.
Hit the jump to watch the featurette. The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, Ruth Wilson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, and Helena Bonham Carter. The Lone Ranger opens July 3rd.
