|Early Man, Nick Park's next film. (Inquisitr)|
After over a dozen years away from the director’s chair, Nick Park, creator of the award-winning stop animation shorts featuring the pair of characters Wallace & Gromit, has returned to Aardman Studios to direct Early Man. Nick Park’s last directing work with Aardman was for Wallace & Gromit: A Matter of Loaf and Death in 2009.
Early Man is set at the dawn of time and stars new caveman character Dug (voiced by Eddie Redmayne) and his sidekick Hognob and tells of their quest to unite their tribe to compete in the first-ever game of soccer. Fans are not the only one thrilled with this recent announcement. Peter Lord told The Hollywood Reporter that Park was a “safe pair of hands.” Check out the new teaser trailer for the movie below.
