What better way to celebrate Halloween than to create a Lorax O’ Lantern for all to see?
"Dr. Seuss' The Lorax" remains one of my favourite books, its message transversing time and becoming more chilling as I get older. I was delighted to find out that its being made into an animated movie with the likes of Danny DeVito, Zac Efron and Taylor Swift as voices. As part of their lead up to its release in March next year, they have created a fun - and free- carving template for Halloween.
Use this free pumpkin carving template and bring The Lorax to life on your front step. Make sure you are following The Lorax on Facebook and if you decide to use the template share your creation there!
In case you’ve not heard of this masterful childrens story, "The Lorax" , written by Dr. Seuss' is a classic tale of a forest creature who shares the enduring power of hope. It warns humanity of the dangers of its destructive and mindless direction its currently taking.
The animated adventure follows the journey of a boy as he searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it, he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world.
Danny DeVito will lend his vocal talents to the iconic title character of the Lorax, while Ed Helms will voice the enigmatic Once-ler. Also bringing their talents to the film are global superstars Zac Efron as Ted, the idealistic young boy who searches for the Lorax, and Taylor Swift as Ashley, the girl of Ted's dreams. Rob Riggle will play financial king O'Hare, and beloved actress Betty White will portray Ted's wise Grammy Norma.
"Dr. Seuss' The Lorax" is the third feature created by Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment ("Despicable Me," "Hop") - and its in 3D-CGI. I can’t wait!!
