This is the second trailer for Dr. Suess’ The Lorax. I absolutely loved the first trailer for the film, and this trailer is pretty good (not as good as the first one, but pretty good). This trailer does give the viewer a better idea about what the story of The Lorax is all about if you have never read the Dr. Suess book. Honestly, it has been a long time since I have even picked up a Dr. Suess book, so I am even in need of a refresher. The film looks brilliantly animated with a lot of vibrant colors. It also looks to be very funny. Danny Devito was perfectly cast as the voice of the Lorax. Zac Efron, Ed Helms, Taylor Swift, Rob Riggle, and Betty White join him as voices of the other characters. I find it odd that they show Betty White’s character in both trailers, but you never hear her speak.
“From the creators of Despicable Me and the imagination of Dr. Seuss comes the 3D-CG feature Dr. Seuss’ 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 Ted’s dreams. Rob Riggle will play financial king O’Hare, and beloved actress Betty White will portray Ted’s wise Grammy Norma.
Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is the third feature created by Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me, Hop).”
The Lorax is in theatres March 2, 2012.
