tonto lone ranger Jerry Bruckheimer Reveals Lone Ranger Movie Logo

It’s been a couple of months since we’ve talked about Disney’s Lone Ranger here at Screen Rant. Unfortunately, with the project still off in the horizon, there isn’t much to say. Luckily, producer Jerry Bruckheimer gave us something new to chew on this week.

Bruckheimer shared a message on Twitter directing his followers to his new official website where he has information on all of his projects from the big screen to the small screen. One of the projects on the website was Disney’s Lone Ranger (hat tip to Bleeding Cool for investigating).

While there wasn’t much there for the movie, which only recently added Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) as its director, there was a new logo for the film, as well as some additional art.  Check out the logo below. Note that Bruckheimer’s site said “Official Artwork Coming” so it’s unclear if this is the “Official” logo or not. Either way, it’s kind of cool and evocative of the original series.

In addition to the black and white logo, there were also a couple of small pictures on Bruckheimer’s site. One of them shows the same logo, but in color, and the other is an all text version using that old-timey Western font that we all like so much. Check out the additional images below.

Lone Ranger is something of a mystery to me. Jerry Bruckheimer is producing, Gore Verbinski is directing, and Johnny Depp is the star (even though he’s playing the sidekick character, Tonto), so you know it’s going to be a pretty big project. And yet, despite the high-profile names attached to the movie, I feel like we know very little about it – other than the fact that they dropped “The” from the title :-P.

When you’re dealing with beloved properties like Lone Ranger, you must tread with care. Then again, 99.9% of the target market that this movie is aimed at won’t be familiar with the original Lone Ranger radio series, or the 1950s television series, so maybe it’s a moot point. In any case, it’s a neat logo for a movie that will probably do major business once they finally get around to making it.

  1. Looks a little cartoonish…

    • The “Walt Disney” moniker above it doesn’t help.

  2. Much too cartoonish and the barnd logo froom Disney is distracting.

  3. Looks fine. Only change the Disney Logo to something more dark. It shouldn’t pop louder than the title. ~ Stark

  4. I think depp as tonto is such a horrible casting choice. I’ll see this cause it might be a lot of fun but that casting is horrible. He’s going to play a caricature or a native american. This will be embarrassing for everyone

    • It’ll be even worse if he serves up the “Me Tonto” talk.

    • Can’t agree with you. Johnny Depp is not a bad choice. His face is perfect for Tonto with his high cheek bones and all. Would need minimum make up. His acting chops ? Need us doubt it that he would do justice to the character. He should pull it off.

  5. Well, it didn’t stop ‘em from casting ‘White Men’ to play ‘Charlie Chan’! It’s just a movie. Relax, Suspend, Believe… ~ Stark

    • That’s all well and good, but then why don’t white people go see movies when the actors aren’t white?
      It’s just a movie. ;)

  6. Disneys Lone Ranger gd how friggen lame.

    And I agree Depp is miscast for this. He’s too short for this also.

  7. Looks like Hollywood is not going to stop until EVERY single icon from our past is tarnished with these damned remakes. Very sad.

    When they finally run out are they just going to start back at the top of the list? /sigh

  8. Considering Lone Ranger has not had a very good movie made (80s flick was pretty rough), I am hoping for a good movie. BTW, Depp is part Cherokee. Personally, I would have gone for Wes Studi or Eric Schweig as Tonto. Still, I’m looking forward to this.

  9. Isn’t the Lone Ranger the Green Hornet’s cousin?

    • He was the Green Hornet’s uncle. However, that was back during the radio show of the 1930s… so with the Green Hornet set in modern-day, that relation doesn’t work out too well.

  10. I hope they do not make Tonto the main character. Depp being Tonto worries me. I also hope they don’t make the Lone Ranger some dumb white guy like liberal Smellywood likes to do. Do this film right or nobody will see it

  11. I think this is so wrong…with so many great Native American actors now days, how can they even think of using a white man to play an indian part now days. How about Rodney Grant, or Michael Greyeyes or someone more realistic! I don’t think that Johhny Depp is a strong enough character to play the Lone Ranger either…at least someone like Brad Pitt is from Oka. and can ride a horse!!!!

  12. Tim Olyphant as the Lone Ranger. ‘Nuff said.

  13. I have seen the old movies and the TV series with Clayton More and Jay Silverheels. I have seen the movie with Clinton Silsbury and if I rember right the CW tried to make A TV series about the Lone Ranger. That version had him hidding his horse in A cave by day,using indian martial arts instead of his guns and romancing Tontos sister. Out of all this I only like the orignal the rest suck. Will this be an improvement who knows.

  14. I think this is a great idea!!! The kids today need a character to look up to that is somewhat heroic. I think Depp is a perfect choice. His ethnic background and looks are perfect for the Tonto character. I hope that this movie is made in the southwest New Mexico area where the terrain is the best for a western movie!

  15. The Logo: Dreadful. Especially “Walt Disney” being part of it. As a graphic designer/
    all I see is a mediocre 1950′s font that looks like it belongs on the side of an airplane … or the
    front of a burger joint. As for the integrity of the Lone Ranger and Tonto story vs casting: great characters,
    can thrive and grow with good writing … let’s direct our hopes to the writing team. It is easy to romanticize
    the original radio and Television versions if you are white, male, and were oblivious to the fact that the original Tonto was white as white can be. Us women? All we cared about was that fantastic white horse.

  16. My suggestion for the upcomming film is the dedication:

    “This film is dedicated to the memory of Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels, who are once and forever, “The Lone Ranger and Tonto”
