National treasure Nick Park is thankfully behind the camera once again to follow up his Oscar-winning dalliance with Wallace and Gromit to tell a less contemporary story. Early Man is now in production and Aardman have released a teaser video giving us a good look at the new Jurassic Park.

Here’s our titular hero, who goes by the name of Dug, and his sabre-toothed sidekick Hognob. We’ll be seeing more of them in 2018.

early-man-first-look-imageEddie Redmayne has been announced as the voice of Dug, and the studio are promising some new casting announcements in the next few weeks as production rolls on.

Here’s the synopsis for you,

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.

Here’s the first video from the set, which is as beautifully animated and as tongue in cheek as you’d expect from Aardman.
