But in order find it, he must discover the story of the Lorax, the often grumpy but loveable protector of Truffula Valley, in an exciting adventure filled with comedy and heart that USA Today’s Claudia Puig calls, “The right blend of funny, silly, and sweet.”

Each Blu-ray combo pack will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Directors' Commentary; 3 Mini Movies; Making of the Mini Movies; Deleted Scene; Seuss to Screen; Seuss It Up; Truffula Run Game; "Let It Grow" Sing-Along; Once-Ler's Wagon; and high-definition exclusives include: Get Out of Town Game; O'Hare TV; and Expedition to Truffula Valley.
