Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, director Chris Renaud’s 3D CG-animated adaptation of the beloved 1971 children’s environmental tale. Will this trailer do for The Polyphonic Spree what Where the Wild Things Are did for Arcade Fire? Maybe?
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.
Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, which features the voices of Danny DeVito, Zac Efron, Ed Helms, Taylor Swift, Rob Riggle and Betty White, opens March 2. Check out the trailer (and colorful stills) below, or visit Apple to view it in HD.
