Once-ler is a character from Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax. He is an antagonist in the film. He is described as a greedy businessman who cut down all Truffula trees to market the Thneed (a thread derived from the tree).
The 2012 version of Once-ler was depicted as a less greedy version from the books. He didn’t want to cut down all trees but did so when his thneed got successful and his family urged him to cut down more. The Lorax is saddened by Once-ler breaking his promise. Once-ler wanted to right his wrongs and have Ted Wiggins the last Truffule tree seed.
