Speaking about the new trailer, Nick Park comments: “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.”
“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 the mighty enemy Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston) and his Bronze Age City to save their home.”
Early Man is currently being filmed in Bristol and marks the return to directing for four-time Oscar-winner Nick Park.
Directed by Nick Park and written by Mark Burton and John O’Farrell.
Early Man will be released on January 26, 2018 in the United Kingdom.
