Dr. Seuss' "The Lorax" coming March 2, 2012

Postby Charles » Fri Oct 28, 2011 11:43 am

The journey of a boy as he 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.

That's Hollywood's version.

The original Lorax is a story about an entrepreneur getting in over his head and winds up destroying the environment.

Here's the trailer for the upcoming film by Universal...

The film is created by the new Illumination Mac Guff in Paris. You may remember Mac Guff Ligne from "Despicable Me". Since then the company has been split in two, and animation part has been renamed Illumination Mac Guff. Mac Guff Ligne continues with other activities in VFX and Post (If I am correctly informed).

Here is an image of the Lorax:
