On March 2, the same team behind Horton Hears a Who! will bring yet another classic Dr. Seuss tale to life on the big screen with The Lorax. A few months ago, we were lucky enough to get a tour behind the scenes of the upcoming movie, spending an afternoon with producer Chris Meledandri at Illumination Entertainment in Santa Monica. Now, we're excited to be able to share some details from that visit with you, giving you an early look at the artistry and animation he and his cohorts — who were also behind Despicable Me — are bringing to the beloved story.
The Lorax features voices from actors including Betty White, Taylor Swift, and Zac Efron, and we previewed a few scenes from the as-yet-unfinished film during our time at Illumination. Check out some highlights from our visit, as well as some pictures of the stars in action, and stay tuned in the coming weeks for our interviews with the cast!
