Warner's re-releasing the 1972 version of the classic (25 min) film based on Dr. Seuss' film is a plus for all of us. The story is timeless - the lesson of greed vs. environment. This version is narrated by Eddie Albert and stars Bob Holt as the voice of both The Lorax and The Once-ler. Our favorite images of the Truffula Trees and the Thneeds are all there. I remember when this was first released, at a time before Earth Day was celebrated and environmentalism was in its infancy. I highly recommend this film for any family DVD collection.
Here is what one of our youth critics have to say: The Lorax is a wonderful film based off of the beloved Dr. Seuss book. It shows the story of a greedy Once-ler who only thinks of himself and in his selfishness he destroys the Truffula trees. The Lorax, who speaks for the trees, tries his hardest to save the land and its inhabitance, but will his pleas be enough to stop the tyrant Once-ler? I enjoyed this film very much and I thought the cinematography was wonderful because it is exactly like the illustrations in the Dr. Seuss book. Being able to see the world through the creative eyes of Dr. Seuss is wonderful and now you can, better than ever, with the deluxe edition of The Lorax including an Ultra Violet copy of the movie. This movie delivers fantastic messages about caring for the environment and respecting the earth we live on. I like the Lorax character most because he stands up for the land and teaches that being greedy and self-centered leads to destruction. I loved all of the music in The Lorax and I especially liked the first scene when you see the land in all of its splendid glory. I give The Lorax 5 out of 5 stars for its strong messages and great classic entertainment.
