Theodor Geisel’s 1971 “The Lorax” will be getting the CGI treatment from Universal Pictures, according to Variety. The story is told by the Once-ler, an all-consuming being who devastates an idyllic grove in the name of industry. The Lorax tries to speak out against it, but eventually he too flees, and the Once-ler is left to contemplate his misdeeds.
Though production hasn’t yet started, Universal is hoping for a 2012 release date.
