Animation legend Nick Park is currently shooting his latest, prehistoric comedy Early Man, but he's given us an early look at the film with the release of a first teaser trailer.
Park says, "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."
Featuring the voice talent of Eddie Redmayne, Maisie Williams, Tom Hiddleston, Timothy Spall, Richard Ayoade and more, Early Man is in UK/ROI cinemas January 2018.
The official synopsis reads:
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.
