Hollywood A-Lister Johnny Depp has made his mark on the movie industry. From his darker work with Tim Burton (Sweeney Todd, Alice in Wonderland, Corpse Bride) to his iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Depp is a household name for many film fans.

Now, Rango (2011), a fan-favorite Depp animated movie — which saw the actor reunited with original Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (2003) director Gore Verbinski and Pirates costar Bill Nighy (Davy Jones) — is leaving Netflix, so make sure you stream it while you can.

Rango, according to one article:

…was one of a number of movies that Vudu gave away to new subscribers in the years after it came to home video. It has also been on Netflix more or less consistently in that time.

Today [October 27, 2021] is the last day to watch Rango on Netflix. It seems likely the movie will be streaming for free somewhere soon, but at present we don’t know where it’s going next. It is also available to rent or buy on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital.

When he becomes lost in the desert, pet chameleon Rango pretends he’s a tough guy and ends up sheriff of a corrupt and violent frontier town.

More on Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard

If you haven’t been following the ongoing Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard case, in November 2020, Hollywood actor Johnny Depp lost his libel lawsuit against U.K. News Group Newspaper publication, The Sun, for their report that he had allegedly engaged in domestic violence — including a reported “hostage” situation during a Pirates of the Caribbean shoot in Australia — against ex-wife Amber Heard (Aquaman, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom) on multiple occasions.

British Judge Andrew Nicol presided over the original proceedings, and Depp later lost his right to appeal the original ruling in the United Kingdom. The Captain Jack Sparrow actor, for his part, has denied the domestic violence allegations, with even his ex-partners, Vanessa Paradis and Winona Ryder, speaking out in his defense at various points in time.
