'The Lone Ranger' Rides Into Vegas and a First Look at Mystic Manor Inside 'The Mouse Castle Lounge'

It's good to be back home this week with a new episode of The Mouse Castle Lounge. While I was galivanting on the East Coast, Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer and a couple of their friends came to my town (Vegas, baby!) to give fans a sneak peek at The Lone Ranger, coming out on July 3. The audience was treated to a new movie trailer and about 20 minutes of clips, followed by a Q & A with Depp, Hammer, director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. I've got some very cool soundbites from the event in the MCL.

And speaking of new trailers, here's a brand new one for Marvel's Thor: The Dark World, hitting U.S. theaters on November 8. They're calling it a teaser trailer. At over a minute and a half, that's quite a tease.

Meanwhile, Hong Kong Disneyland's new E-ticket ride, Mystic Manor, is in preview mode in preparation for a May grand opening. Videos of this cute-creepy-fun tour of Lord Henry Mystic's strange Victorian mansion are already hitting YouTube en masse. This is the best one I've seen so far. IT'S ONE LONG SPOILER, so be warned.

Also providing a bit of mystery is a new Mickey Mouse cartoon called Get a Horse. It will make its debut at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in June with old school animation (rubber-hose arms and legs; pie eyes) and Walt Disney himself voicing Mickey, just like old times. Walt Disney Animation isn't giving away a whole lot of details--like where exactly Get a Horse comes from--but it looks like they've sifted through some previously unused voice tracks from Walt and matched it up with some new hand-drawn, 2D animation. It sounds intriguing as the timeless mouse continues to make his cartoon comeback.

Movies, mysteries and more are what's in store in today's Mouse Castle Lounge. Enjoy!

The Mouse Castle Lounge can also be heard on iTunes and Stitcher.
