Rango is an ordinary chameleon who accidentally winds up in the town of Dirt, a lawless outpost in the Wild West in desperate need of a new sheriff.
Hayley Atwell were considered for the role of Priscilla.
You kill bird?
Rango: Why, yes, I did.
Wounded Bird: Bird dead, snake come.
Rango: Uh, snake?
Priscilla: He means Rattlesnake Jake, Mr. Rango. He usually doesn't come to town because he's scared of that hawk, but he might come now. Can I have your boots when you're dead?
Rango: No. I ain't got ...
When the mayor pulls the trigger to shoot Rattlesnake Jake, we here a ratchet sound, and the gun's cylinder rotates to....an empty chamber. The gun is a single action Colt Peacemaker (the classic western gun), and the cylinder would not move on the trigger pull, it would move to position when the hammer is cocked before each shot.
The DVD and Blu-ray releases include an extended version, which adds one scene after Rattlesnake Jake drags the Mayor off into the desert. Due to the water that has flooded up from the ground, the town of Dirt has become a beach resort and re-named itself Mud. As the locals enjoy the new scenery, Rango gets news that Bad Bill is causing trouble in another town. He decides to make a dramatic exit, delivering an inspired speech to the town while mounted on a roadrunner, but falls out of the saddle before he can finish it.
