I love Dr. Seuss. The imagery, the wonder, the imagination…as a child, I got lost in his magical world by reading his books.
As Hollywood began making films out of his incredible stories, I became smitten all over again.
There is simply something about Dr. Seuss – no matter how old you are, no matter your lot in life, there is a way to rise above your circumstances and be happy.
Born with a heart three times too small? Well, it just may grow.
Hear a Who that no one else hears? Well, perhaps if they listen hard enough…
Each story has a point, it says something, it means something. Dr. Seuss may seem silly, but in my eyes, he’s a poet.
I was so excited last week when I saw the poster for Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax at our local movie theater!
I have a surprise, you see. Can you guess what it may be? It’s a sneak peak of the trailer for you to see!
DR. SEUSS’ THE LORAX will premier in theaters on March 2, 2012. I can hardly wait!
It’s a 3D-CGI feature and the cast features Danny DeVito, Zac Efron, Ed Helms, Taylor Swift, Rob Riggle and Betty White. It was produced by Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy and Executive Producers were Audrey Geisel, Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio.
About the film:
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).
