Eddie Redmayne to voice Aardman’s Early Man

Aardman are the definitive animation studios in England.

Despite the ongoing progress with computers and all that simplistic technology, the guys behind Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep still trail-blaze with stop-motion animation. That’s painstakingly crafted characters from slabs of clay made into this terrific and jovial animation pieces. How incredible is that!

After the success of the aforementioned baa-rilliant movie, Aardman have announced their new feature and it’s got a brand new lead as well! The Academy Award winning British talent Eddie Redmayne will voice Dug in a tale about the caveman’s journey to unite his tribe in the mighty Bronze age.

The movie also marks director Nick Park’s first outing since Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of The Were-Rabbit. Nick Park comments: “Not only is Eddie a joy to work with, his versatility and boundless energy have really helped to bring my new character to life.  He embodies the cheeky charm, fun and plucky wit of Dug and I’m sure he’ll get along brilliantly with Dug’s sidekick Hognob.”

Basically, we need to see this film in all its clay glory!

What do you think of the casting?
