They pulled out all the stops at the Walt Disney Studios Showcase today with everything but a marching band! That is until the USC marching band showed up playing THE LONE RANGER theme!

This is where it gets interesting, in the background the Lone Ranger logo appeared on the screen, but that’s not all, the screen pulled up to reveal someone dressed in The Lone Ranger costume on a white horse and everything.

After the Lone Ranger left the stage, Dick Cook said Disney did not know just yet who would be playing the Lone Ranger, but he says they have had several candidates.

Just then, from behind, someone in full Jack Sparrow regalia came out onto the stage holding a nickel plated revolver and wearing the Lone Ranger black mask.

He removes the mask to reveal his true identity JOHNNY DEPP!!

The audience yet wild to say the least!

Cook says it would be a perfect Trifecta, Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland and now as The Lone Ranger and he promised Disney would throw in another Pirates movie for good measure.

UPDATE: Disney has just confirmed to IESB that Depp in fact is officially signed on to play TONTO in the Lone Ranger film and not the Lone Ranger himself.

It looks like Disney and Depp certainly have a long relationship ahead!

It was an amazing day at the Disney preview and Depp was certainly the icing on the cake!

This goes along with something we reported some time ago that Pirates helmer Gore Verbinski and crew including writers Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio would be behind the Lone Ranger film, Depp likes to work with those he knows…
