New “Lorax” Trailer Released.

Dr. Seuss’s timeless environmental fable hits theaters in full 3D CGI next year. Danny DeVito voices the cranky environmentalist.

And here’s a clip from the original — and still best — animated special directed by Chuck Jones.

Odd, but I don’t remember any subplots about trying to impress girls or death-defying races amongst razor-sharp knives from the original story. Why … oh why … Lord … does Hollywood feel the need to “update” stories for the screen by ripping the guts out of them?

Has the disaster of “Mars Needs Moms” taught us nothing?
