The Lorax (Deluxe Edition) is a classic animated musical film from 1972, based on the famous children's book by Dr. Seuss. The movie follows a young boy named Ted (voiced by Bob Holt), who lives in the artificial, industrial town of Thneedville. In this town, everything – including trees – is made of plastic, and there is no nature or greenery left. Ted is in love with his neighbor Audrey (Athena Lorde), who dreams of seeing a real tree. Driven by his love for Audrey, Ted embarks on a mission to find a real live tree and discover the secrets of the land where they once grew.

Ted's journey takes him outside of Thneedville, into the barren wasteland of a world without trees. There, he meets the Once-ler (Eddie Albert), who tells him the story of how the land became barren. The Once-ler used to be a successful businessman who exploited the natural resources of the land, cutting down every tree to make his Thneeds – a type of clothing which the Lorax (also voiced by Bob Holt), a small creature who speaks for the trees, objects to. Despite the warnings of the Lorax, the Once-ler continued to cut down trees until there were none left, leading to the downfall of his business and the loss of the land's beauty.

Ted realizes that he must find a way to convince the Once-ler to help him plant a tree and restore the natural beauty of the land. Along the way, he learns the importance of nature and the consequences of mindless greed and consumption. Through vibrant musical numbers and colorful animation, The Lorax (Deluxe Edition) teaches important lessons about environmentalism, conservation, and sustainability. The movie also features beautiful illustrations and characters that are faithful to Dr. Seuss's original book, making it a must-watch for fans of his work.

Overall, The Lorax (Deluxe Edition) is a timeless classic that has remained relevant and important for decades. Its message about environmental responsibility is more important than ever, and it remains a beloved and inspiring film for children and adults alike. The movie is a wonderful adaptation of Dr. Seuss's story, featuring memorable songs, charming animation, and a heartwarming story that will inspire viewers to take action and protect the planet.

The Lorax is a 1972 animated movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 24 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.9.
