If you are a Dr. Seuss fan then you have to be excited about the upcoming The Lorax film! This is a story that Graham is already very familiar with thanks to our many Dr. Seuss book iPhone apps. There is just something exciting about a children’s classic being put in movie form.
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.
We already make a big deal out of Dr. Seuss’s birthday around here, so this gives us one more way to celebrate. How appropriate that The Lorax is being released on his birthday as well!
