Lorax has made it to DVD wahoo! My kids and I loved this movie when we saw it in the theaters and you can read my Lorax Movie Review. The dvd/Blu-ray combo pack brings even more fun of the Lorax and the fun characters in to your house 🙂
The Lorax is about a boy named Ted who is on a mission to bring a real living tree into his town,Thneedville that is run by Mr. O’Hare, the Mayer. Mr. O’Hare though does not want trees in his town, as he wants there to be as much pollution as possible so that is new product O”Hare Air will be bought by the people of the town. Ted’s determination is brought on because he likes a girl name Audrey who all she wants is to see a real living tree. Ted has a talk with his grandmother about finding a tree and where all the trees have gone and she tells him he needs to talk to the Once-Ler. In order for Ted to talk to the Once-Ler he must get out of the town, which is a challenge since it has walls all around it but he does succeed. Once out side the walls he finds the Once-Ler who tells him the story about the trees and where they have gone and what was done to them. He tells Ted the story of the Lorax and how he is the keeper of the trees and how he (the Once-Ler) came to meet the Lorax. He tells Ted how with one Truffula seed (the last one) he can make a difference and change the world and bring back the trees.
