The upcoming family event movie “Horton” starts in the jungle of Nool, in the heat of the day, in the cool of the pool. Horton the elephant was splashing, enjoying the jungle’s great joys, until Horton heard a small noise.
The film, like Seuss’ book, “Horton Hears a Who!” presents an imaginative elephant named Horton (Carrey) who hears a faint cry for help coming from a tiny speck of dust floating through the air. Although Horton doesn’t know it yet, that speck houses an entire city named Who-ville, inhabited by the microscopic Whos, led by the Mayor (Carell). Despite being ridiculed and threatened by his neighbors, who think he has lost his mind, Horton is determined to save the particle…because “a person’s a person, no matter how small.”
