AARDMAN and STUDIOCANAL today announce that Nick Park’s new prehistoric comedy adventure EARLY MAN has officially begun production, with first character animation released to show more of the film’s hero Dug and his sidekick Hognob as cameras start rolling.
Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, EARLY MAN 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. It also marks Nick Park’s first feature film since Academy Award® winning WALLACE AND GROMIT: THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT. EARLY MAN unleashes an unforgettable cast of hilarious new characters.
