Making his big splash this past weekend, The Lorax is a bona fide hit. For kids, it’s a fun world filled with color and whimsy while adults are faced with its eco message. Sure, it’s an animated film where swelling orchestrated music and manipulated characters really lay it on thick but the message is all to real nonetheless.
Despite it’s new 3D debut, the story of The Lorax is over 40 years old. Meaning that the wonderful Dr. Suess had put pen to paper, warning the younger generation about pollution and safeguarding our resources long before it was trendy to do so.
So whether you believe in global warming or not, I think we can all agree that pollution is bad as is wasting our resources. If you have children or even if you can appreciate the complexity and art that goes into making a 3D animated film, it might be worth your time to head to the theater and heed the call of The Lorax!
