lone rangerLone Ranger Ride For Justice Social Media 

In preparation for the much anticipated release of The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, Disney is encouraging fans to participate in “The Lone Ranger Ride For Justice.” Disney took the iconic characters from The Lone Ranger movie and franchise and brought them to life – literally – as a storytelling device for the campaign. Now through July 4th, Life-size and ultra-realistic statues of the Lone Ranger and Tonto riding horseback will be embarking on a journey across the country. They 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. The twist is that no one will know where Lone Ranger and Tonto will appear or where they’re going next. Disney is challenging the public through social media to participate in a scavenger hunt to find the physical statues, or to guess their location based on a photo clue. In each city, two clues will be released on The Lone Ranger Ride for Justice tumblr page  and photo clues will be posted on Instagram Fans can then upload pictures of the statues to Twitter or Instagram with #LRRideForJustice for a chance to win prizes.
