The Lorax - Trailer
Director Chris RenaudYear 2012Genre(s) Animation
Ted is a young boy who lives in the perfect town: everything is clean and perfectly manufactured. Plastic flowers spring out of the ground when you go past and they come complete with mechanical, chirping birds. The one thing that the town doesn't have is trees, something that is completely alien to Ted but not to his crush, Audrey.
One day, Ted goes round to Audrey's house, where she shows him the massive drawings she has done on the back wall of her house - they are drawings of trees. Audrey is sad that the town has no trees, which were once a common sight long ago; she longs to see them. Ted decides to find a tree for Audrey, in the hope that she might kiss him.
Making his way out of town, Ted comes across what looks like an abandoned house, on top of a hill. The Once-ler lives in here and reveals to Ted that he remembers trees - he chopped them all down for a successful business venture, much to the dismay of a creature called The Lorax. The Once-ler tells Ted that if he wants to see trees again, he has to find The Lorax, who is incredibly grumpy.
But Ted's little jaunt out of town didn't go unnoticed - the Mayor warns him not to leave town again and does everything in his power to stop Ted from doing so. It is up to the young boy, with the help of Audrey and her grandmother, Norma, to escape the evil mayor and leave town in search of trees - and the elusive Lorax.
