Dr. Seuss' classic, environmentally themed children's book "The Lorax" comes to the big screen in a tale of a young boy who encounters a cantankerous forest creature after venturing outside of his artificial city in search of a tree.
Ted (Zac Efron) lives in a town where nothing is quite as it appears; everything is plastic, including the plants. Hopelessly smitten by the beautiful Audrey (Taylor Swift), who dreams of one day seeing a real tree, Ted boldly leaves the city determined to find the flora and grant her wish.
Along the way, the young adventurer crosses paths with the Lorax (voice of Danny DeVIto), a diminutive, mustached defender of nature who doesn't take kindly to human intruders. The better Ted gets to know the Lorax, however, the more he learns that his newfound friend has good reason for being a bit surly.
Betty White, Ed Helms, and Rob Riggle also feature in the voice cast.
