AARDMAN and STUDIOCANAL today announce that Maisie Williams (‘Game of Thrones’) has been cast in Nick Park’s highly anticipated new prehistoric comedy adventure, EARLY MAN. Maisie joins the cast voicing Goona, the gallant and indomitable rebel who befriends the film’s hero Dug (Eddie Redmayne), and helps steer him through the clash of the Stone Age and Bronze Age civilisations.

Nick Park said of the casting: “Maisie is a terrific actress, and she is of course no stranger to embodying a valiant heroine. I’m most excited to see her breathe life into Goona – I know she’ll be the perfect ally to Eddie’s Dug”.

Maisie added: “I’m a huge Aardman fan – having the chance to work with Nick Park is a dream come true, especially as I get to voice such a fantastic character as Goona. I can’t wait for audiences to meet her”.

Cameras are rolling in Bristol with Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hiddleston previously announced as the voices of Dug and Lord Nooth respectively.

In the past year Maisie has been nominated for an Emmy for supporting actress for her role in ‘Game of Thrones’. In addition Maisie has won Young British Performer at the London Critics Circle Film Awards and Best Breakthrough Performance at The Evening Standard British Film Awards for her role in The Falling.

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.
