The Lone Ranger - The Lone Ranger (2003 film) - Netflix
The Lone Ranger was a 2003 American western action television film. It was an attempt by The WB to revive the Lone Ranger franchise for a new generation. The character first appeared in 1933 in a radio show conceived either by WXYZ (Detroit) radio station owner George W. Trendle, or by Fran Striker, the show's writer. The radio series proved to be a hit and spawned a series of books (largely written by Striker), an equally popular television show that ran from 1949 to 1957, comic books, and several movies. The film, intended as a pilot for a new television series, starred Chad Michael Murray as the Lone Ranger (the name of the Ranger's secret identity was changed from “John Reid” to “Luke Hartman”) and Nathaniel Arcand as his Native American companion Tonto.
