Walt Disney Studios announced today the world premiere of “The Lone Ranger” will be held on Saturday, June 22, in the Disney California Adventure theme park at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. A giant red carpet down the park’s iconic Hollywood Boulevard will be lined with thousands of park guests cheering for the film’s stars, filmmakers and the many Hollywood celebrities in attendance.
The Lone Ranger’s horse Silver will make an appearance and an actual train engine built for the film will be on display.
Disney California Adventure Park will be hosting the premiere and sponsors will be offering opportunities for the guests in conjunction with the event. Time Warner Cable, a title sponsor of the world premiere of Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone Ranger,” will stream the event live from Disney California Adventure Park.
A one-of-a-kind Lone Ranger Ninja motorcycle from Kawasaki, a sponsor of the premiere, will be displayed at the event and will be available for the stars in attendance to autograph. The bike will be auctioned off at a later date, with all proceeds going to the American Indian College Fund.
Ticket sales from the premiere will benefit the American Indian College Fund, available starting today at https://community.collegefund.org/the-lone-ranger. Because Disney is also underwriting the entire cost of the premiere, 100% of the revenues received by the American Indian College Fund for the tickets will be used for scholarships and other support for Native American students.
Tickets are priced at $1000.
