Books on Film: The Lorax Trailer
Thanks to the always-up-on-things EarlyWord, I know that there’s a trailer for the upcoming Lorax animated film:
A couple what have yous…
- I’m kinda digging the soundtrack – it’s a pretty unusual pick: Light and Day by the Polyphonic Spree. It seems to fit.
- Is it just me, or are the human characters here stretching the boundaries of what is Seussian? It looks like they took the Horton Hears a Who adaptation from a couple years back (which was pretty faithful to the look of the book, and also not half bad) and mixed in some Despicable Me and a touch of Tangled. Not thrilled with that.
- While it’s difficult to tell for sure, the basic storyline from the book seems to be there.
- The Lorax punches people now?
