The Brutality of Living in the Stone Age Has Never Been More Adorable Than in Aardman's Early Man

By James Whitbrook on at

Well, adorable by prehistoric standards, that is.

Early Man, the next movie from Nick Park and Aardman Animation—the guys behind Wallace & Gromit, Chicken Run, and much more—follows the adventures of Dug the Caveman (Eddie Redmayne), as he, his best friend Hognob (an actual hog), and the rest of his tribe adapt to a perilous transition into the Bronze Age.

This already looks like it’s just packed with the earnest goofy humor and charm that’s made Park’s past films such a delight. We can’t wait to see more. Early Man is set to hit theaters sometime in 2018.
