Zac Efron, Taylor Swift in “The Lorax” trailer


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: I’ll confess. I’m a huge fan of the animated “Horton Hears a Who,” which put Jim Carrey and Steve Carell to great use in a family comedy that still managed to comment on religion, politics and the way we view our place in the world. So I’m hoping for similarly big things from “The Lorax,” the next adaptation of a classic Dr. Seuss work that’s being brought to us by Universal and Illumination Entertainment (“Despicable Me,” “Hop”).

The first trailer was released this morning. We have it below:

Embedded with hope, the clip sets up the story of a hopelessly smitten Ted (Zac Efron) who embarks on a mission to find a living tree because of something Ashley (Taylor Swift), the girl of his dreams, tells him.

In addition to Efron and Swift, “The Lorax” features the voice talents of Danny DeVito, Ed Helms, Willow Smith and Betty White. Not as The Lorax. That’s DeVito. At least, I think. Right? Check out the trailer. Then see “The Lorax” on March 2, 2012. It has to be better than Mike Myers in “The Cat In the Hat.” Guaranteed.
