From the creators of ‘Wallace and Gromit’ and ‘Chicken Run’ comes this hilarious depiction of stone-age life and the invention of football.
‘Early Man’, tells the story of Dug (voiced by Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne) who takes on the mighty Lord Nooth (Voiced by Tom Hiddleston) and his Bronze Age City. Aided by Goona (voiced by Maisie Williams) they must unite the tribe to defeat him.
‘Early Man’ features a stellar cast of British TV and cinema, with the likes of Timothy Spall (Chief Bobnar), Richard Ayoade (Treebor), Johnny Vegas (Asbo), and Mark Williams (Barry) all lending their vocal talents to enrich this quirky, very British movie.
There are enough jokes to entertain the kids, and enough jokes that only mum and dad will understand. So it delivers on both levels.
Nick Park’s quiet style and gentle touch mark him out to be one of the greats of the animation world. From cottage industry to global success should be applauded, mainly as he flies the flag for Britain.
‘Early Man’ was released on May 28th on Blu-Ray/DVD and 4kUHD.
