Did you know that Aardman have been bringing us their unique and excellent efforts now for 45 years? When you add together all their inventions, on both the big and small screen, that’s darn impressive work and this rather loony first trailer for Early Man looks set to continue the theme of surreal, accessibly comedy with smart stop motion that’s suitable for audiences of every age, across the generations.
I know that often the phrase ‘all-star’ cast can be thrown around like boiled eggs in a basket but they’ve assembled one heck of a great voice cast that includes, wait for it… Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall, Richard Ayoade, Selina Griffiths, Johnny Vegas, Mark Williams, Gina Yashere and Simon Greenall for the new film from Aardman legend Nick Park.
Watch the first teaser now:
Nick Park also had this to say:
“Today we get to meet Dug’s tribe, a lovable 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.”
