Aardman’s “Early Man” Begins Production

Following their success together on “Shaun the Sheep The Movie,” Aardman and StudioCanal have announced the start of production on “Wallace and Gromit” and “Chicken Run” creator Nick Park’s new prehistoric comedy adventure “Early Man”.

Set at the dawn of time, the story follows plucky caveman Dug (voiced by Eddie Redmayne), along with sidekick Hognob, as he unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game.

Further casting announcements are expected in the coming weeks. This is Park’s first feature film since the Oscar-winning “Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit”. “Early Man” is currently targeting a January 26th 2018 release in the U.K.
