The Lorax Trailer

It all started a long, long time ago… Let's learn the story of the trees! A brand new Australian trailer for Illumination Entertainment's animated take on Dr. Seuss' The Lorax has landed online, courtesy of MSN UK (via Vlicious). In this one we get a different assembly of footage than the first teaser, starting with the young Ted (voiced by Zac Efron) asking to hear the story of the Truffula trees, which is when we actually get to meet the "legendary, slightly annoying" Lorax, voiced by Danny DeVito. Beyond that I'm not sure where this is going, but it looks fun in only a way Illumination could deliver, and I mean that in a good way.

Watch the new Australian trailer for Dr Seuss' The Lorax movie, via MSN UK and now YouTube:

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 next year. Look good?

    Hey, this looks better than the Dreamworks staple of bad films. No wait. It's the same especially since it's a bunch of ex-Dreamworks people making this crap. No thanks.

    Not too keen on how the old Once-ler voice sounds, but I think Ed Helms does great for the younger version. Maybe as more clips and such are released I'll get used to the voice, but other than that I just wish it were a little more gruff. Still think it looks like an appealing film visual wise. I'll go see it.
