As you can see, he starts off a little rocky but eventually finds his footing. We love the music in this clip and the fact that they point it out so blatantly. Sometimes tunes can be considered secondary characters in movies.

Rango centers on a chameleon who’s going through an identity crisis and embarks on a cross-country journey where he ends up in the dangerous Southwest territory. Instead of the animals being portrayed as creatures in the wild they’re given human characteristics, a cowboy/mariachi wardrobe, and a Western genre vibe.

The voice cast for the film includes, Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin, Alfred Molina, Bill Nighy, Harry Dean Stanton, Ray Winstone, and Timothy Olyphant.

Rango is scheduled to hit theaters on March 4, 2011.
