I always remember when I was a kid reading books I found dis-interesting however before I found American comic books there was only a few books that would grab my attention, Asterix, Tin Tin and Dr Seuss books. There was just something about Cat In A Hat probably the surreal quirky characters, a drawing style that reflected the decade the books came out but like many adults my own age who also grew up with the books until we got older then we realised many of his books were about social, political issues including the latest book to be adapted for film The Lorax (environmentalism and anti-consumerism).
Today Universal Pictures have released the first official trailer for The Lorax the new animated adventure from Despicable Me director Chris Renaud a story about a lovestruck boy (Zac Efron) who tries to find a rare object, a tree to win the heart of the girl next door (Taylor Swift). To find the tree the boy must learn the story of The Lorax (Danny DeVito) a creature whose world is in danger. If you loved the visual style, colour palette of Despicable Me this one looks right up your alley, it does seem to have (so far) the right balance of comedy thankfully no fart jokes or been belted in the privates the ‘comedy’ that seems to be rife in kids films.Hopefully Universal has forgotten The Lorax is a story with a message and The Lorax won’t be the butt of all the jokes,too many film studios nowdays seem to rip the core of films especially adaptations for the sake of getting a few more bum in seats, this is a story that generations of families have grown up with and hopefully for many more.
The Lorax also has the voices of Ed Helms,Rob Riggle, and Betty White with the film arriving in UK&Ireland on 23rd March 2012 (2nd March USA).
The 3D-CGI feature Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is an adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ classic tale of a forest creature who shares the enduring power of hope.
