Illuminate's next step
While they fall prey to a lot of the issues seen in Despicable Me (overused sidekick humor, not quite nailing the flow of including humor for both adults and children), Lorax was definitely in it's heart a re-invention of the classic Seuss tale for a new generation.
The opening and closing musical numbers feel a mite forced, and one song in the middle feels excessively heavy-handed, possibly even for children, but there's still enough character and charm to find enjoyment if you can overlook these issues.
