From the creators of Despicable Me comes the animated feature film adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, a beloved cautionary tale of environmental conservation wrapped up in a colorful children’s story.  The 3D-CG animated adaptation is an adventure that follows the journey of idealistic 12-year-old Ted (voiced by Zac Efron) while he searches for a real Truffula Tree for Audrey (voiced by Taylor Swift), in order to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find one, he must learn the story of the Lorax (voiced by Danny DeVito) from the enigmatic and bitter old hermit, known as the Once-ler (voiced by Ed Helms), who let the temptation of greed and success get the better of him.  For more on the film, here’s some images, trailers, 8 clips from the movie, and the Super Bowl spot.

At the recent Los Angeles press day, I was able to speak with Ed Helms for our partners at Omelete.  During the interview, Helms talked about how he got involved in The Lorax, how his character changed during the recording process, his favorite movie, actor and director, what’s up with The Hangover 3, is he ever going to release a CD, and do more people want to talk about The Office, The Hangover, or Walk Hard.  Hit the jump to watch.

Finally, if you missed my video interviews with Taylor Swift, Zac Efron or director Chris Renaud, just click the links.
