A grumpy Grinch plots to ruin Christmas for the village of Whoville.
Illumination Entertainment's second film to feature no humans after Sing (2016), and the second animated Dr. Seuss film to feature the furry humanoids seen commonly in Dr. Seuss books, after Horton Hears a Who! (2008).
Then he got an idea. An awful idea. The Grinch got a wonderful, awful idea.
Grinch: I know what to do. I'm going to STEAL their Christmas!
Several times the Grinch stands on a rock outcropping by his cave that overlooks Whoville. On long shots of his cave, the outcropping is missing.
