Based on the trailers that have come out for the upcoming The Lorax film it’s hard to really tell what they’re doing with the story. The first one implied that the lovestruck young boy would become the tree chopper. This new one shows an old man (assumption on that part) in a broken land telling the story of the Lorax to the boy.
Will it be a charming story without any life? Or, will it actually take Seuss’ environmental message and actually try to teach kids something as the original story did?
It’s hard to tell.
Outside of that, the film stars Danny Devito as the Lorax. Other voices include Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Ed Helms and Betty White.
The Lorax will be out in 2D and 3D on March 2, 2012.
