International Trailer for The Lorax Sets the Story
11.01.11 by Ryan
The first trailer for the upcoming, CGI-animated adaptation of The Lorax arrived online last week, and revealed the Once-ler (voiced by Ed Helms), Suess' embodiment of corporate greed that only appeared as a pair of thin, green arms in Dr. Seuss' 1971 parable about big business' effect on the environment.
Now, an international trailer has been released which shows that the Once-ler is still the creature who hides his identity from others, but once the idealistic Ted (voiced by Zac Efron) arrives at the Once-ler's home, we get to see the origin of the relationship between the the Lorax (Danny DeVito) and his nemesis after he started chopping down Truffula Trees.
The Lorax was adapted by Despicable Me and Horton Hears a Who screenwriters Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, and was directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me) and newcomer Kyle Balda. Betty White, Taylor Swift and Rob Riggle round out the voice cast.
