The Lorax Will Be the Next Dr. Seuss Work to Hit Theaters

On March 2, 2012, a CG-animated version of Dr. Seuss's The Lorax will be coming at you in 3-D, courtesy of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment. In an era when being "green" is chic, The Lorax may have particular relevance, as it follows the greedy Once-ler who strips a forest of its Truffula trees — despite warnings from the tree-loving Lorax — which only leaves him with a land devoid of animals.

Dr. Seuss's works have been fodder for a few movies in recent years, including the live-action How the Grinch Stole Christmas! and Cat in the Hat (after which Seuss's widow, Audrey Geisel, voiced her displeasure and refused to allow any more live-action adaptations), and the animated Horton Hears a Who.

I remember feeling anxious about Horton, as that book was so near and dear to me, but it ended up being completely delightful. I think The Lorax could look pretty cool up on the big screen as well. And though it's a classic work (and will therefore cause some people to be outraged about an adaptation), I still find it touching that Seuss's creations will continue to inspire more generations in new ways.

Lorax+no live action+3d=me jumping up and down with excitement. I hated the live action crap, but Horton was amazing. If Lorax is done in the same style as Horton I am a happy camper!
