Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax transports viewers into a fantastical landscape imagined by Dr. Seuss and vividly brought to life by Chris Meledandri and his acclaimed filmmaking team at Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me). Directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me) from a screenplay adapted by Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul (Despicable Me, HOP, Horton Hears a Who) from the 1971 children’s classic, the film is an imaginative journey that begins in the town of Thneedville, where a boy searches for the one thing he knows will win the heart of his dream girl. But in order find it, he must discover the story of the Lorax, the often grumpy but loveable protector of Truffula Valley, in an exciting adventure filled with comedy and heart that USA Today’s Claudia Puig calls, “The right blend of funny, silly, and sweet.”
Danny DeVito (“It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” Twins, L.A. Confidential) lends his unmistakable voice to the Lorax, the remarkable creature who “speaks for the trees,” with Ed Helms (The Hangover, The Hangover Part II, “The Office”) as his enigmatic nemesis, the Once-ler. The all-star cast also includes Zac Efron (High School Musical, The Lucky One, 17 Again) as Ted, an idealistic 12-year-old searching for the Lorax; Grammy® Award winner Taylor Swift (Valentine’s Day) as Audrey, the girl of Ted’s dreams; Rob Riggle (The Hangover, Big Miracle) as the villainous O’Hare; Jenny Slate (Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, “SNL”) as Ted’s protective mother; and five-time Emmy® Award winner Betty White (The Proposal, “Hot in Cleveland”) as Ted’s wise Grammy Norma.

This is one movie that I regretted not getting to see in theaters but am glad I didn’t have to wait too long for it to be released on Blu-Ray/DVD. My entire family (kids ages 4 and 1 and 1/2 years old as well as Dad) loved this movie. We felt it conveyed the message of Suess’ book in a way that would appeal to our current generation.
The bright colors and rich animation was very appealing to the eye. There were many great songs in the movie too. My kids tend to love movies that have songs, so this one went over extremely well with them. The characters were quite amusing in their own ways
My daughter being the sweet sensitive little girl that she is actually cried when the last Truffula tree was cut down! And was overjoyed in the end when a seed was planted. I am 100 % sure that the message of this movie reached her and it makes me extremely happy that she was touched in such a way. It’s can start with us so I hope people will take to heart the words of the Lorax…. ‘Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
I highly recommend the Lorax movie to anyone and everyone. The DVD Blu-Ray combo has been a joy to watch with all the extra features and never before seen film shorts! And if you haven’t already, I’d recommend adding the original Lorax story to your collection as well.
