40 years after the release of this special, Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment released a theatrical CGI remake of the animated TV special on March 2, 2012, which became the first entry in the Dr. Seuss Cinematic Universe after its huge box office success, despite having mixed-to-average reviews (which were slightly better than 2000's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas").
