A brand new snippet from "The Lorax" has been debuted by Universal Pictures. Titled "The Forest", the short sneak peek focuses on a scene in which Once-Ler and his donkey have just entered some kind of a colorful wonderland where many of Truffula trees grow.
The greedy boy is so amazed by the forest's beautiful landscape and its amazing creatures. The clip additionally brings viewers to witness Dr. Seuss' imaginative world where there are singing gold fish (Humming Fish), tiny cute bears (Bar-ba-Loots) and other fantastical creatures living in harmony.
In the film, Once-Ler is portrayed as a young man, while in the original book he is described as an ambiguous species. Once-Ler begins to destroy the beautiful environment as he starts chopping down the Truffula tress to make "Thneeds" (a Fine-Something-That-All-People-Need).
"The Lorax" centers on lead character Ted who searches for a way to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it, he must discover the story of the Lorax, a grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world from destruction.
Universal will release the animated movie in theaters across the U.S. on March 2. The voice cast includes Ed Helms as Once-Ler, Zac Efron as Ted and Danny DeVito as Lorax. Taylor Swift, Rob Riggle, Sherry Lynn and Betty White also lend their voice for the film.
