Disney’s THE LONE RANGER “Ride for Justice Tour” Kicks Off In New York
In support of Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone Ranger,” releasing in U.S. theaters on July 3, Disney kicked-off of The Lone Ranger Ride for Justice Tour in New York City’s Union Square on June 12th. Life-size statues of the Lone Ranger and Tonto appeared atop an iconic building on 18th Street in Union Square. Fans gathered for a meet-up in Bryant Park and participated in a hunt to find the statues and were given Lone Ranger prizes and screening passes.
The tour continues across the country ending in L.A., just in time for the movie’s opening on July 3rd. The Lone Ranger and Tonto will be gracing rooftops, mountaintops and famous landmarks along the way, only staying long enough in each city to be discovered by the locals before they continue their ride westward to Orlando, Miami, Atlanta, St. Louis, New Orleans, Denver, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Hollywood, and Burbank.
Fans who find the Lone Ranger and Tonto are asked to enter at Disney.com/loneranger/ and to Instagram or Tweet a photo or Tweet the location with the hashtag #LRRideforJustice for a chance to win a trip for two to New Mexico.

From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ THE LONE RANGER, a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), 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.
THE LONE RANGER also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter.
A Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films presentation, THE LONE RANGER is directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski, with screen story by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio and Justin Haythe and screenplay by Justin Haythe and Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio.
