Dr Seuss, aka Theodore Geisel, is an author loved by children and adults alike. My favourite story-book from him is Oh, The Places You’ll Go. Until that gets made into a movie, I found myself really enjoying The Lorax – and its main message.
I spoke to the cast, and when Danny DeVito wasn’t talking about Die Antwoord, got some great insights from them on going green and being environmentally friendly. What I like about the story is that Dr Seuss came up with it while he was in Tanzania, and was overcome by the beauty of the Serengeti. He wrote 90% of the story, there and then, and it’s just as relevant now as it was 40-years ago.
Take a listen to Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Danny DeVito, Ed Helms and director Chris Renaud.
The Lorax opens on the SA cinema circuit today, and is still playing in the US.
