The Projector

"The Lorax" isn't as popular a Dr. Seuss book as "The Cat in the Hat" or "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," but it's going to be next March's big animated offering. One question, though: How would the filmmakers deal with the fact that the Once-ler, the book's villain who's responsible for chopping down all the trees in the forest, isn't seen? Well, Entertainment Weekly has the answer: Illumination will turn him into a full-fledged character. Here's the first image of the Once-ler. Judging from this drawing, apparently he's six-foot-seven and weighs 40 pounds. Couldn't all those adorable critters just push him over?
