Consumers to Play Cowboys and Indians with ‘Lone Ranger’

Disney Consumer Products releases array of products tied to Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer Western that targets young and older audiences

It’s time for kids to play cowboys and indians again.

For “The Lone Ranger,” Disney Consumer Products has been able to line up a number of licensees to create merchandise tied to the film, that gallops into theaters July 3. Partners include Lego, NECA, Theodora & Callum, Rotenier and Will Leather Goods who are creating everything from toys, action figures and playsets to high-end accessories and hand-crafted leather goods. 

Typically products tied to summer tentpoles rely heavily on superheroes and transforming robots. But with “The Lone Ranger,” Disney’s been able to get partners to rally around the iconic image of the masked man as a new kind of superhero for kids, while also making products that tap into the nostalgic factor for adults who were fans of the character during his run on TV.

The Lone Ranger” collection of products is available now at Disney Store locations nationwide, as well as boutiques, national retailers and at DisneyStore.com.

Lego’s line of “Lone Ranger” products include action figures featuring the masked man and Tonto, and playsets based on setpieces in the film, including the silver mine.
