Eddie Redmayne is voicing the lead role in the new animated film from Aardman Animation.
Early Man is set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth. The film tells the story of how plucky caveman Dug, along with sidekick Hognob unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game.
The film is directed by Wallace & Gromit creator Nick Park.
Nick Park comments: “Not only is Eddie a joy to work with, his versatility and boundless energy have really helped to bring my new character to life. He embodies the cheeky charm, fun and plucky wit of Dug and I’m sure he’ll get along brilliantly with Dug’s sidekick Hognob.”
Early Man is due for release in the UK on January 26 2018.
