First Look: Dr. Seuss's Animated "The Lorax" Movie

Posted: October 25th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
First Look: Dr. SeussSubmit Comment
Over a year ago, we reporting that Universal Pictures was developing a 3D CG animated movie based on Dr Seuss' "The Lorax" book. Today, we have the first look at the title character. Check out the shot below.

The story is narrated by a greedy entrepreneur who, despite warnings from the tree-loving Lorax, strips a forest of its stock of Truffula trees to manufacture clothing. The results are catastrophic as all the animals leave and nothing's left.

USA Today has learned that Danny DeVito will voice The Lorax. One of the villains will be voiced by Ed Helms (The Hangover) who will play The Once-ler, a shortsighted, greedy creature who chops down every tree he can find to make his Thneeds, which is "a thing everyone needs."

The other villain will be voiced by Rob Riggle (The Hangover), who will play O'Hare, a new character who is an industrialist selling cans of fresh air to the polluted world.

Other members of the voice cast include Zack Efron as a boy named Ted who goes in search of the Once-ler to find out how the world became so ugly, and Betty White will voice Ted's grandmother who tells him of the colorful world that used to be.

The film is targeted for a March 2nd, 2012, release, which falls on the birthday of Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss), who died in 1991.

So what's next after this? A 3d CG animated version of Green Eggs and Ham?

We now have an animated version of what Zach Gallifinakis would look like if he were bald, kept the 'stache, lost the beard and had hepatitis.

Since I'm not that familiar with Dr Seuss work, I have to ask: was he batsh*t insane or did he just live on magic mushrooms?

A new character selling cans of fresh air?! Oh lawd this is going to f*cking stink. I'm not paying a penny to see this movie in theaters.
