Aardman Animation have recently released their first teaser trailer for Nick Park's (Chicken Run) Early Man.
The cameras are currently rolling – albeit slowly and incrementally – on Early Man, the latest film from Bristol based animation wunderkinds Aardman.
The 16-second video, the first character animation we have seen from the project, features Dug the caveman and his trusty sidekick Hognob, who appears to be some sort of furry prehistoric warthog, plus a somewhat more fearsome foe.
Nick Park, the Academy Award® winning filmmaker behind Wallace & Gromit, Creature Comforts and Chicken Run (2000) is back in the director's chair for this one, which is set at the dawn of time.
Fellow Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne (The Theory Of Everything) will be lending his voice to Dug, a caveman who unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age. We have been promised further casting announcements in the coming weeks.
Expect the usual marriage of wittily eccentric British humour and wholly handcrafted stop motion animation when Early Man arrives in cinemas on 26 January 2018.
