Johnny Depp unmasks Disney adventure film at “The Lone Ranger” world premiere and Cars Land after party at Disneyland

This weekend the Disneyland Resort brought Hollywood to Hollywood Land by rolling out the red carpet for the world premiere of “The Lone Ranger.”

On Saturday, June 22, 2013, the Disney California Adventure theme park’s iconic Hollywood Boulevard was lined with thousands of park guests cheering for the film’s stars, filmmakers, and celebrities, including headliners Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, who play Tonto and John Reid – the Lone Ranger. The Lone Ranger’s horse Silver even made an appearance along with the actual train engine built for the film.

Fans lined up outside the park early in the morning, some overnight, to grab the best spots along the red carpet winding down Buena Vista Street leading to the Hyperion Theater where the film made its debut. Those wanting to actually attend that screening, not just stand on the streets, even bought $1,000 tickets to walk the carpet, see the film, and mingle with celebrities during an after party held in Cars Land, followed by an exclusive showing of World of Color. Ticket sales from the event benefitted the American Indian College Fund.

Inside the Hyperion Theater, “The Lone Ranger” was shown in high-definition with projections provided by Christie Digital. The film is a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes as Native American warrior Tonto recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid, a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
