The Lorax

When it comes to Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment's adaptation of Dr. Seuss' classic children's book The Lorax, we've only seen our mustached environmentalist voiced by Danny DeVito in a first look photo and a very orange teaser poster. Now Entertainment Weekly has unveiled a few more photos that give us a first look at Dr. Seuss' world with the Truffula trees, and the misguided Once-ler who wants to turn them all into thneeds (a Fine-Something-That-All-People-Need) which is a strange pair of longjohns that can become a shirt, sock, glove, hat, pillow case, and bicycle-seat-cover. See the new photos below!

Here are the photos from Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment's adaptation of The Lorax:

In this version of The Lorax, a boy searches for the one thing that will enable him to 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 from a greedy entrepreneur as he strips a forest of its stock of Truffula trees to manufacture clothing. Danny DeVito voices The Lorax while supporting voice talent includes Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Betty White, Rob Riggle and Ed Helms. Despicable Me director Chris Renaud is co-dircting with animator Kyle Balda from a script written by Hop and Horton Hears a Who! screenwriters Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul. Universal is bring The Lorax to theaters on March 2nd, 2012. Excited?
