Dr. Suess’ The Lorax has its first trailer and it is pretty fantastic for an animated film. It introduces you to the world The Lorax is set in, which is rich in color. The trailer is funny. I found myself laughing hysterically during it. The trailer really stuns visually. The film features the voices of Danny DeVito, Zac Efron, Ed Helms, Taylor Swift, Rob Riggle, and Betty White. I am pretty sure I will be catching this in the theatre, and it looks to possibly really good in 3D.
Anyone know what the song is that is used in the trailer? Update: The song is “Light and Day” by The Polyphonic Spree.
“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.”
