the lorax dvd coverThe Lorax was a book I remember reading as a child. When I heard that the creators of ‘Despicable Me’ (one of the best doggone animated movies. ever.) were making a movie based on the book, I was well…giddy. On Sunday evening, we got to curl up in our family room, pop the 3D DVD into our player, and see this movie for ourselves. It was charming. If you haven’t already seen it, well I so totally recommend it. Read what Amber, my 16 year old daughter, had to say about the movie below.

The story begins in a city called Thneedville, where the pollution is thick and the people have to buy fresh air. Nobody really minds too terribly much, so everyone is content with their plastic light-up trees and blow-up bushes. (My DAD said he’d love to live in a place like that, not that he likes pollution or anything, but that there would be no grass to mow, bushes to prune, or leaves to rake…silly Dad!)

On the other hand, there’s Ted, your average young boy who’s about to do something stupid for a girl. You see, the girl he really likes wants to own a real tree. So following the advice of his (amazing) Grammy, Ted ventures past the walls of Thneedville to find the Once-ler, the only person who knows what happened to the trees.

So Ted (and you!) will learn the story of the Lorax (who speaks for the trees), a forest full of zany animals (who like marshmallows), and an entrepreneur (who’s just looking to make his family proud).

I have a really great opinion of this movie, as its full of clean, hilarious humor and has a great story and amazing characters. The 3D version is unlike a lot of 3D films, as the effects are well placed and do actually add to the film instead of just being randomly thrown about. The DVD set also includes three mini-movies that weren’t with the film in theaters–each of which will provide a few laughs after you’re done watching the actual movie.


Along with the mini-movies (Wagon Ho! will have you thinking of old slap stick cartoon humor, Forces of Nature was a concept that was originally a portion of the movie but then removed, and Serenade is a great little musical number featuring the Bar-ba-loots) the bonus features include screen tests, concept art, a deleted scene, and behind the scenes interviews. If you are a fan of the Dr. Seuss book and have seen the original animated film, you’ll really enjoy watching Seuss to Screen, which shows how this, Universal Studios production was made.

Need a little vacation? Go on a tour of Thneedville and Truffula Valley, and an art lesson will keep everyone busy and your fridge front full of Lorax drawings.

There are also some really fun games included on the disc for the kids (and grownups!) to play along with the characters of the movie. And a “Karaoke” music video for the finale song in the movie “Let it Grow”. Speaking of letting it grow, the bonus features allow you to ‘Grow Your Own Truffula Tree!”

One of the most unique special features I’ve ever seen on a Blu-ray Disc is the “O’Hare Vision” version of the movie. You’ll actually get commercials while you watch…but these aren’t just any commercials trying to sell you pop or junk food, oh no, you’ll get funny “air” commercials to watch, so you won’t want to use those breaks to go to the bathroom, they’re all a part of the movie.

The Lorax 3D Blu-ray combo pack or Blu-ray DVD combo pack really is something you’ll want to add to your movie library. It’s something your whole family will enjoy, watch over and over again, and keep busy with even after the movie is over. These combo packs also include a digital movie for watching on the go.

Here is a special The Lorax Activity Sheet that you can download and print for your children.

You can purchase The Lorax on Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray and DVD at retailers nationwide.
