Have you seen Dr.Seuss’ The Lorax yet? Well now is your chance. This adaptation of the classic children’s book is now out on DVD and Blu-ray!
The imaginative world of Dr. Seuss comes to life like never before in this visually spectacular adventure from the creators of Despicable Me! Twelve-year-old Ted will do anything to find a real live Truffula Tree in order to impress the girl of his dreams. As he embarks on his journey, Ted discovers the incredible story of the Lorax, a grumpy but charming creature who speaks for the trees. Featuring the voice talents of Danny DeVito, Ed Helms, Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Rob Riggle, Jenny Slate and Betty White, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is filled with hilarious fun for everyone!
I loved how Universal Pictures adapted this story. While there are a lot of new twists and turns, it actually follows the book pretty closely in true Dr. Seuss style! I absolutely love the music in the film and have found myself singing along after a while. My son loves the one wheel motorcycle and the cute Barbaloots. The animation is amazing and those truffula trees look just like I pictured them in my brain when I read the book. While the Lorax himself was a little bit more of a character then he was in the book, I loved Danny DeVito’s version of him. The Lorax spreads a great message and the movie was no different. I hope that families everywhere watch the film and learn from the Once-ler’s mistakes.
