How ‘RANGO’ could change the game in animation

How ‘RANGO’ could change the game in animation: "Paramount/Nickelodeon's 'Rango' tells the tale of a chameleon -- an apt character metaphor for an actor of Depp's sly talents -- who winds up in the dusty Wild West town of Dirt as a tall-talkin', gun-slingin' sheriff.
