Trivia / The Lorax

  • Billing Displacement: Trailer only. The film's opening credits are actually appropriate, starting with the three characters from the book in order of importance (Danny DeVito as the Lorax, Ed Helms as Once-Ler, and Zac Efron as Ted) and the rest following. The trailer on the other hand plays up Zac Efron and Taylor Swift, Ed Helms, and gives Danny DeVito an "And Starring".
  • Cut Song: There are a few on the soundtrack, as well as some alternate versions of "Thneedville" and "Everybody Needs a Thneed".
  • Irony as She Is Cast: Despite Ted and Audrey being voiced by the star of the High School Musical movies and Taylor Swift respectively, their characters never sing a note.
  • Product Placement: Thankfully avoided in the movie itself, but some of the crossmarketing hasn't been without controversy.
  • Undermined by Reality: The film's numerous corporate tie-ins screw up the message quite spectacularly. The Lorax speaks for the trees, and Mazda!
  • Word of God: On the DVD commentary, it is mentioned that after "How Bad Can I Be?", 5 years have passed.
