‘The Lorax’ is an upcoming 3D CGI film based on the Dr. Seuss children’s book of the same name set for release in cinemas on 27th July 2012.
The animated adventure follows the journey of Ted (voiced by Zac Efron), an idealistic young boy who lives in a city without trees. Ted sets out to find the one thing that will win him the affection of Audrey (voiced by country music star Taylor Swift), the girl of his dreams, who wishes to see a real living tree. In order to do that, he must discover the story of the Lorax (voiced by Danny DeVito), a grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his forest.
The adaptation will also feature the vocal talents of Ed Helms as the enigmatic, tree-chopping Once-ler, Rob Riggle as financial king O’Hare and beloved actress Betty White as Ted’s wise Granny Norma.
‘The Lorax’ will be the fourth feature film based on a book by Dr. Seuss and the second fully computer-animated adaptation after ‘Horton Hears a Who!’
