lorax gets movie release date

Dr. Seuss fans, rejoice!

Back in October, we were excited to report that Dr. Seuss' underrated masterpiece The Lorax is being adapted into a 3-D feature film by the team behind Despicable Me and Horton Hears A Who.

Now, we've learned that the film will be released in theaters on March 2nd, 2012, and we can't wait!

For those of you whose history with Seuss ends at The Cat in the Hat, the original Lorax story/cautionary tale revolves around a hairy little creature who stands on his tree-stump podium and tries to convince people not to destroy the forest.

Here's how Universal has described the story in their adaptation of The Lorax:

"[It's about] a boy who searches for the one thing that will help him 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."

As long as the important message about the environment from the original story/cautionary tale is still present in this movie, we'll be happy.

Plus, as we've mentioned before, the movie's got one hell of a vocal cast, including Zac Efron, Betty White, Danny DeVito, Ed Helms, Rob Riggle, AND now Taylor Swift as well!

We're pumped!

Will U check out The Lorax next March when it's released?

    If this turns out like the rest of the Dr. Seuss remakes, it will be horrible. Why mess with a classic? Dislike.

    The Lorax is more than an environmental save the forest story. It's a cautionary tale of how consumerism costs us all in the end. Paying a very high price to make a bunch of shit we don't need through cyclic consumerism. The very thing you value shitheels. Read the book again, it might do you some good. Turning it into a coming of age love story irritates me.

    "The Lorax" is my favorite Seuss story and one of my favorite stories of all time. I hope they do it justice. This is one story that already comes fully equipped for a movie — please don't wreck it.

    Since this is the best Seuss tale I was really looking forward to this movie but now that I know its going to be in 3D I will most likely not see it at all. I REFUSE to see anything that is made #D. I will not pay my good money to see 45 minutes of "flying" sequences that 3D is filled with. Such a waste!! 3D SUCKS!

    They got the eyes all wrong…everything else is fine, but they obviously do
    not have a handle on the sensitivity of Dr. Seuss's original drawings yet. It's very
    bug eyed and a looks a little bit like a robot instead of a real creature.

    Re: BonerMcBone – AGREED!!! You know the heart of the story is going to be missing.. Its quite irritating…

    It's a cute story, but knowing hollywood, they'll get all sanctimonious and condescending with it and then it'll suck.

    This is old news…like really, really, really old news. USA Today did an article on this a few months ago. Yawn.
