LOS ANGELES — Johnny Depp will answer fans’ questions about “The Lone Ranger” in a live online session.

Disney says that Depp and co-star Armie Hammer will discuss the adventure film April 17 after showing 20 minutes of exclusive footage to about 400 fans at a Las Vegas theater. Director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer also will participate in the session, which is to stream live on Yahoo Movies and Livestream.

Fans outside Las Vegas can submit questions for “The Lone Ranger” team through Twitter and watch the film’s trailer online. But the extended footage is just for those in Las Vegas.

The promotion coincides with the annual CinemaCon convention.

“The Lone Ranger” releases July 3.
