In case you don't remember, Aardman Animations is the production company behind stop-motion films such as Chicken Run, Shaun the Sheep, and Wallace and Gromit. They always make charming, enjoyable, and funny films. Their latest project is called Early Man, and it's set in the stone age. Today we have a teaser trailer to share with you and it's really quite delightful.
Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures roamed the earth, EARLY MAN tells the story of courageous caveman hero Dug (Eddie Redmayne) and his best friend Hognob as they unite his tribe against a mighty enemy Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston) and his Bronze Age City to save their home.
The movie also stars Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones. The director of the film, Nick Park, revealed more of the cast in an official announcement, which also offers us details on some of the other characters:
Today we get to meet Dug’s tribe, a loveable bunch of misfits voiced by some exceptional British talent. They’re essentially a group of inept cavemen and women including Treebor, played by Richard Ayoade, a gentle giant scared of his own shadow; Magma, Treebor’s no nonsense mother voiced by Selena Griffiths and Mark Williams as Barry, whose best friend is a rock. Chief Bobnar, voiced by the brilliant Timothy Spall, leads the pack as their long-suffering leader, and father figure to his tribe of idiotic brutes.
Early Man is set to be released in U.K. theaters on January 26, 2018. There's no word yet on when it will hit the U.S. but it'll be sometime next year. It looks like it's going to be a lot of fun! I love these Aardman films.
