The Lorax
 
trailer

Seems to be loosely based off of the book of the same name by Dr. Seuss. It takes place after the book in that it ...

Spoiler: show
... presumably has the boy try to re-grow the forest, summon the Lorax, and bring life back to the land.

It also takes the focus away from a purely industry vs. nature bent and introduces something of an Orwellian dystopia for our would-be hero to overcome.

Could be good, could be terrible. Only time will tell. Thoughts? I'm leaning towards "good for the kids, a little too silly for the grown-ups." Still wouldn't mind seeing it at least once though. And it could surprise me and be very, very good on the whole.

I saw the trailer for it, I'm inclined to agree with you. I thought Horton Hears a Who was good, especially considering I was disgusted by all of the other Doctor Seuss movies up to that point, but the Lorax looks like they may continue the good work of Horton.

*shrug* Time will tell.

Well, Preparations A through G were a total failure...

Sorry couldn't resist

That one was pretty far reaching.

...

The Lorax is my all-time favourite Seuss book, so I was really excited when I heard it was going to be a movie.

Hearing the creative changes, though...what? Did the producers deliberately try to shy away from the ecological concerns? :| Did they bow to political pressure like YouTube did to the RIAA? Conservation was the whole point of the book!

And what's this, a tacked on romance? With Zac Efron and Taylor Swift? ಠ_ಠ

I dunno...I'm prepared to designate this battleship sunk.
