Aardman and StudioCanal release the first full trailer from the forthcoming stop-motion feature from the creators of ‘Wallace & Gromit’ and ‘Shaun the Sheep.’

Aardman and StudioCanal have released the first full trailer and a brand-new poster for director Nick Park’s new prehistoric comedy adventure, Early Man.

Early Man is the new prehistoric comedy adventure from the four-time Academy Award-winning director and Aardman, the creators of Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep. Shot in Aardman’s own distinctive style, the film will take 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.

The new trailer debuts many new characters such as Goona (voiced by Maisie Williams) Dug’s tribe, including chief Bobnar (Timothy Spall), energetic Asbo (Johnny Vegas), gentle giant Treebor (Richard Ayoade), northern tongued Eemak (Simon Greenall), matronly Magma (Selina Griffiths), injury prone Gravelle (Gina Yashere) and dim-witted Barry (Mark Williams). The cast also includes Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston) as the leader of the imposing Bronze Age tribe that threatens to move Dug and the gang out of their beloved valley.

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.

Early Man continues the production partnership with Aardman and StudioCanal following the success of Shaun the Sheep Movie directed by Mark Burton and Richard Starzak. StudioCanal is co-financing alongside the BFI (British Film Institute) and will distribute in its own territories, the U.K., France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand, selling worldwide.

Early Man opens in U.K. cinemas on January 26, 2018.
