Here’s the first look at the feature film version of the classic Dr. Seuss book The Lorax. I’m not sure what I think about the added story, but Danny DeVito voicing the titular character has me mostly sold on the idea. We’ll find out in March if the filmmakers have stayed true to the spirit of the book. Check out the photos, trailer and one-sheet poster!
From the creators of Despicable Me and the imagination of Dr. Seuss comes the 3D-CG feature Dr. Seussí The Lorax, an adaptation of the classic tale of a forest creature who shares the enduring power of hope. The animated adventure follows the journey of a 12-year-old 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 youth who searches for the Lorax, and Taylor Swift as Audrey, the girl of Tedís dreams. Rob Riggle will play financial king OíHare, and beloved actress Betty White will portray Tedís wise Grammy Norma.
Dr. Seussí The Lorax is the third feature created by Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me, Hop).
