Avail­able: Now on DVD and BD IT RE­ALLY is the per­fect time for a film like The Lo­rax. Based on one of Dr Seuss’s short sto­ries, the cre­atively rich tale is per­fect fod­der for some slick com­puter an­i­ma­tion and the strong en­vi­ron­men­tal mes­sage that runs through the story. It tells the tale of the res­i­dents of plas­tic city Th­needville, in par­tic­u­lar young man Ted ( Zac Efron), who wants to win the heart of a young girl who would like noth­ing more than to feel a real tree. His quest takes him out­side his fake city walls to meet a strange man known as the Once- ler ( Ed Helms). It’s here he learns the truth be­hind what hap­pened to all the trees and how the strange guardian of na­ture known as the Lo­rax ( Danny DeVito) may hold the key to their re­ju­ve­na­tion. As with all Seuss- ian sto­ries, the char­ac­ters are in­cred­i­bly unique and in­fec­tiously peppy and it’s geared for younger au­di­ences to wow at. Ex­tras: Not viewed. Deleted scene, a cou­ple of Doc Seuss fea­turettes and an in­ter­ac­tive fea­ture.
