From the creators of Despicable Me and Hop, jointly created by Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment, Dr Seuss' The Lorax is a tale of the enduring power of hope.
The 3D animation of an adventure is related through a lovestruck 12-year-old boy Ted (Zac Efron) as he journeys far and wide seeking a pom pom-like "Truffula" tree to win her heart. Along the way he meets The Lorax (Danny DeVito), a frenetic, grumpy yet charming creature, who is determined to protect the lush, beautiful world he lives in – first, the trees of course. As expected, there is also villain mogul Aloysius O'Hare (Rob Riggie), producer and owner of fresh air canning factory who is determined to stop them.
Besides the vibrant colours of this delightful animation, keeping us happily entertained are also other adorable and lively characters like Grammy Norma (Betty White), who dishes out wise advice, and reclusive Once-ler (Ed Helms), the rash entrepreneur who unwittingly assisted in the destruction of the greenery of the earth, realises his grave mistake before hiding away in guilt and shame. As with most animation films, Dr Seuss' The Lorax comes with a moral of the story. This time, environmental. This is a great film to bring your kids to, and a lighthearted one to liven up your weekend.
