The movie can be viewed in the theatrical or extended (by about four minutes) version. The audio commentary is only available for the extended and features Director/Story Co-Writer/Producer Gore Verbinski, Head of Story James Ward Byrkit, Production Designer Mark "Crash" McCreery, Animation Director Hal Hickel, and Visual Effects Supervisor Tim Alexander. Being such a technical film, no surprise that's the main focus of their conversation.
"Breaking the Rules: Making Animation History" (HD, 49 min) is a two-part feature, divided into "The Stage is Set" and "Now We Ride," that gives a great look at the making of the film. The former focuses on the pre-production of creating the story and design while the latter reveals ILM's involvement in the production. There are ten "Deleted Scenes" (HD, 8 min), though most are extension of scenes. "Coda – Never-Before-Seen-Ending" is one of the few deleted scenes that are worth seeing because it really should have been concluded the film since it wraps up the story and theme quite nicely. "Real Creatures of Dirt" (HD, 22 min) is geared towards children as it looks at the animals that inspired the film's characters. The self-explanatory "Storyboard Reel Picture-in-Picture," only available on the theatrical version, showcases the preliminary work of many talented artists. "A Field Trip to Dirt" (HD) is an interactive feature that allows users to move through town and learn about characters. It's something to occupy a kid, but is ultimately a waste of time. The second disc in the set is a DVD of the theatrical version and it contains a Digital Copy.
Rango is highly recommend to fans of animation and Westerns, and it's is sure to make a lot of year-end Blu-ray lists solely from its excellent video quality.
