A few weeks ago we got our first glimpse of what was coming from the latest Dr. Seuss animated movie.  Today we get the full blown trailer for The Lorax.

The 3D-CGI feature Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is an adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ classic tale of a forest creature who shares the enduring power of hope. The animated adventure follows the journey of a boy as he searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world. Danny DeVito will lend his vocal talents to the iconic title character of the Lorax, while Ed Helms will voice the enigmatic Once-ler. Also bringing their talents to the film are global superstars Zac Efron as Ted, the idealistic young boy who searches for the Lorax, and Taylor Swift as Audrey, the girl of Ted’s dreams. Rob Riggle will play financial king O’Hare, and beloved actress Betty White will portray Ted’s wise Grammy Norma.

The Lorax arrives March 02, 2012.

  1. Looks like it’s a fun movie.

    You know, if they’d made this movie and called it, “The Schmendrick” or “Mr. Fuzzy Pants”, I might actually go see it.

    Don’t see any reason to watch yet another movie twisting Theodore Giesel’s content into another attempt at merchandising. At this point, the books written by Giesel and A. A. Milne have been so “adapted” they may as well not exist.

  2. “The Lorax” is a pretty heavy lesson on environmentalism.

    This movie looks like fun, and my kids will probably love it. I just hope it encourages parents to read the actual story and discuss it with their children.

  3. I don’t understand this. I guess the love story is neccessary to flesh this out to 81 minutes…but its not about a boy getting a tree for a girl…it’s the Once-ler deforresting a paradise for bear creatures. Devito short = Lorax short = Funny?

  4. The animated adaptation was what 25 minutes? So I can see the appeal, and it doesn’t look as bad as some of the more recent CGI adaptations, cloudy with a chance of meatballs.
