When the animated film Horton Hears A Who came out a couple of years ago, people wondered what this latest Dr. Seuss book-turned-movie was all about. Simply put, it’s about a giant elephant in the sky … read on if you want to find out more about this cool feature-length cartoon – now available on Blu-Ray!



Elephant Tale

Horton Hears a Who!, adapted from the Dr. Seuss story of the same name and brought to life through the wonders of CGI (computer-generated imagery), tells the story of an elephant who discovers, befriends and defends the tiniest of creatures. Built around the principle that "a person's a person, no matter how small," the story, and the film, takes on issues of faith, trust and friendship, as well as peer pressure and believing in yourself and what you know to be true.



The Story

Horton the elephant, voiced by Jim Carrey, lives in the jungle of Nool with some not-so-bright creatures. One day, he hears a sound that seems to be coming from a tiny speck floating past him. Horton chases after the speck to find out what’s going on and comes to realize that a mini universe exists on the speck, whose citizens live in a city called Whoville. Horton's only contact in Whoville is the mayor – the two characters form a relationship that eventually has Horton trying to save the city and its people by trying to find a safe place for the speck in the his jungle.



The underlying themes of Horton Hears A Who! include the importance of faith and self-assuredness even in the face of others’ doubt and ridicule. Both Horton and the Mayor of Whoville face lots of pressures from enemies in their separate worlds who don’t believe they are in communication with each other. But eventually, through steadfastness and courage, the two characters prevail.
