Set in the prehistoric era, Early Man tells the story of the last tribe of cavemen as they are run out of their beautiful valley home and into the Badlands for the greedy Lord Nooth to mine for bronze. Young tribe member Dug and his furry sidekick, Hognob unite the tribe, challenging the Bronze Age City to a sacred game of soccer to win the hearts of the big city and their valley back.
Early Man is a stop-motion British animation children’s film written by Mark Burton and James Higginson. The comedy, directed by Nick Park stars the voices of, Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams and Timothy Spall.
A delightful story about believing in yourself and working as a team. The comedy was simple and innocent, suitable for young children between 4-10. A bit too slow for the average movie goer but entertaining enough to put the kid’s in front of.
