The Lorax Will Speak For The Trees…In Theaters! AND In 3-D!

| Filed under: Film FlickersZac EfronBetty White

film version of the lorax coming soon to theaters in 3d

Dr. Seuss' classic story about The Lorax, a creature who speaks for the trees, is on its way to the big screen!

Sure, The Cat In The Hat is enjoyable, but REAL Dr. Seuss fans know that The Lorax is the good doctor's masterpiece.

The story revolves around a hairy little creature who stands on his tree-stump podium and tries to convince people not to destroy the forest.

The animation team putting this project together previously made Despicable Me and Horton Hears A Who, and they've got quite a cast of vocal talent on board!

Here are the AMAZING actors who will be lending their voices to The Lorax:

-Danny DeVito as The Lorax

-Ed Helms as The Once-ler (a greedy creature who chops down trees to make his "thneeds," which are "a thing everyone needs")

-Rob Riggle as O'Hare (an industrialist who exploits the polluted world and sells cans of fresh air)

-Zac Efron as Ted (a boy who searches for the "Once-ler" to learn how the world became ugly)

-Betty White as Ted's Grandmother (a woman who lived in the world when it was beautiful)

Here's what Danny DeVito has to say about the Lorax's message:

"Look, I don't want to be gruff about it, but we've got to wake up and smell the oil burning. I'm hoping that the squeakiest wheel gets the least grease."

More from DeVito:

"I feel sometimes the only way to get things done is shake people up a little bit, and the Lorax is not a guy who pussyfoots around. He's not a guy who uses kid gloves."

We hope everyone will check out this family movie/cautionary tale when it is released!

It's a wonderful and important story, and we couldn't be happier to hear that it's getting such a high profile theatrical release!

Did U grow up on The Lorax? Will U go see it when it's released?

    I love The Lorax! It was always my favorite by Dr. Seuss, and I love the sound of this cast.

    And with that news my day got infinitely better! Definitely his masterpiece and a story of the sort that NEEDS to be highlighted. Now don't be getting jealous (ok you can - hehehehe) but I met Dr Suess when I was 4 years old and I have a signed copy of the Lorax - aha - yes indeedy. My preccciousssssss.

    The next movie it would be good to do, building on top of the theme of the Lorax is a stunning book by Graeme Base called 'Uno's Garden'. This book would translate beautifully to the screen.

    There is still beauty in our world, for how much longer is up to those of us on the bottom rung to decide. We have the power and choose to give it away with whom we vote for and the stupid shit we buy.
