More Images From ‘The Lorax’ Reveal The Villainous Once-ler

By  · Published on October 20th, 2011

It was the summer of 2009 when the filmmakers behind Horton Hears A Who! announced they would be making green eggs and ham of Dr. Seuss’s “The Lorax.” Since then we’ve gotten updates on casting – with Zac Efron playing the young man and Danny DeVito voicing the title tree-hugger – and even some imagery.

Today, EW has even more pictures, and two of them reveal The Once-ler (the crotchety pair of arms that tells young Efron about the lush, beautiful world of the past that was destroyed by his greed).

Check them out for yourself:

The first shows The Once-ler in his elder, dark form as he retells the story. The second is him in flash-back, cutting down his first tree. The third is a new picture of The Lorax doing a Wilford Brimley impression.

The Lorax hits screens March 2012.
