Aside from Laika, the folks at Aardman Animations are one of the few studios keeping stop motion animation alive in the face of its decreasing commercial prospects. Their last film, Shaun the Sheep, was a critical hit but their lowest grossing feature to date. That didn’t stop them from greenlighting a sequel, but in the meantime Wallace and Gromit creator Nick Park is directing a new original film of his own. Early Man revolves around a group of cavemen at the dawn of time and although it may seem reminiscent of The Croods, the sensibility is unmistakably Aardman. Featuring the voices of Tom Hiddleston, Eddie Redmayne, Maisie Williams, Early Man hits theatres sometime in 2018. Check out the teaser after the jump and see what you think.
