Dr. Seuss: The Lorax Coming on DVD/Blu-Ray

Are you a fan of Dr. Seuss? Caden and I were so excited to go see the Lorax when it was at the theater. His class was at school supposed to go as a field trip but when the rating was changed, the school was unable to take them. I decided I would take him one day when he was out of school. He absolutely loved the movie and laughed quite a bit. When we received our copy to review last week, he could not wait to watch it. We ended up watching it 3 times in a row and also watched the mini-movies that were included. We laughed and had so much fun. You can see the trailers of the mini-movies at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3DXU1348PHg. It is definitely a must see movie.

Lorax

Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax transports viewers into a fantastical landscape imagined by Dr. Seuss and vividly brought to life by Chris Meledandri and his acclaimed filmmaking team at Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me). Directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me) from a screenplay adapted by Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul (Despicable Me, HOP, Horton Hears a Who) from the 1971 children’s classic, the film is an imaginative journey that begins in the town of Thneedville, where a boy searches for the one thing he knows will win the heart of his dream girl. But in order find it, he must discover the story of the Lorax, the often grumpy but loveable protector of Truffula Valley, in an exciting adventure filled with comedy and heart that USA Today’s Claudia Puig calls, “The right blend of funny, silly, and sweet.”

DR. SEUSS’ THE LORAX arrives on Blu-ray™ 3D Combo Pack and Blu-ray™ Combo Pack (both sets featuring DVD, Digital Copy and UltraViolet™) on August 7, 2012 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment The DR. SEUSS’ THE LORAX Blu-ray™ 3D Combo Pack will also include three brand new mini-movies including:

  • Serenade – Two Bar-ba-loots — one love shy and the other suave and confident — battle for the heart of their would-be sweetheart with the help of a colorful cast of characters, including the Humming-Fish and Swomme-Swans.
  • Wagon-Ho – Two Bar-ba-loots take The Once-ler’s wagon on a ride they won’t soon forget.
  • Forces of Nature – Determined to scare The Once-ler out of Truffula Valley, The Lorax decides to create the illusion of ominous forces of nature.

I received a copy of The Lorax for review. No other compensation was received.

  1. Dr. Seuss is one of the best children’s book authors ever and everyone knows at least one of his stories. My personal favorite is The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and I loved Horton Hears a Who. After seeing how well Horton was made I decided that I need to see this one as well. From what I’ve heard, this movie speaks to all ages which is fantastic. The kiosk around the corner doesn’t have it available for rent until September 4th so a Dish co-worker suggested I try Blockbuster @ Home. It delivers the movies in my online queue straight to my door, which cuts down on time trying to find the movie I want to see. I requested it last week before the movie even came out and I got it yesterday. I get to spend the weekend with my kids watching this wonderful book come to life and that’s a great way to spend the last weekend before they head back to school. Thanks for mentioning all of the extras since that is something we really do enjoy.
