Meet the Team that Rocked the Stone Age in Early Man @earlymanmovie #EarlyMan

I partnered with this brand for product/compensation in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.

Early Man

Released: May 22, 2018

From Aardman, the award-winning tribe that brought you Wallace & GromitChicken Run, and Shaun the Sheep Movie, this prehistoric romp tells the epic story of Dug the caveman and his goofy friends who challenge invaders to a game of soccer in order to win back their home. Perfect for the young and young-at-heart alike, the cheerful tale told in charming, well-crafted claymation is Certified Fresh™ on Rotten Tomatoes and is full of “abundant delights” (Ella Taylor, NPR).

Starring in the film are Oscar®-winner Eddie Redmayne (Best Actor, The Theory of Everything, 2014; Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Tom Hiddleston (Thor: RagnarokKong: Skull Island), Maisie Williams (TV’s “Game of Thrones”), as well as Timothy Spall (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet StreetHarry Potter Franchise).

Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures roamed the Earth, Early Man tells the story of courageous caveman hero Dug (Eddie Redmayne) and his best friend, Hognob, as they unite their tribe against a mighty enemy — Lord Nooth (Tom Hiddleston) and his Bronze Age City — to save their home.

The animated world of Early Man has extensive special features including never-before-seen featurettes that reveal the love, passion, hard work, and magic that goes into creating an Aardman Studios animated film.


  • “Before the Beginning of Time: Creating Early Man” Featurette
  • “Nick Park: Massaging the Funny” Featurette
  • “The Valley Meets the Bronze” Featurette
  • “Hanging at Aardman Studios: A Workshop Exploration” Featurette

I admit I wasn’t sure I would like this movie as I don’t usually like claymation-type movies but I love this movie. It is so much more than I expected and has a great storyline. My son especially loved it as it has a whole soccer theme in it! Yes who knew cavemen invented soccer!

The storyline is about people from the Stone Age trying to takeover the cavemen’s space. The Stone Age is something totally crazy to cavemen but they learn to appreciate and learn from each other. It is a story of friendship, problem solving, determination and growing. My family loved it and it is a movie we don’t mind watching again.

BUY IT:  Look for Early Man on Amazon or wherever DVDs are sold.
