Here’s the first trailer for Early Man, the new prehistoric comedy adventure from four-time Academy Award-winning director Nick Park and Aardman, the creators of Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep.
Shot in the studio’s own distinctive style, the film takes audiences on an extraordinary journey into an exciting new world unleashing an unforgettable tribe of unique and funny new characters voiced by an all-star British cast.
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.
Nick Park commented: “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.”
Co-funded and distributed by STUDIOCANAL, Early Man marks Park’s first feature film since Academy Award winning Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and is set to introduce “an unforgettable cast of hilarious new characters.”
