British stop-motion legends Aardman Animations (Wallace & Gromit, Chicken Run, Shaun the Sheep) have unveiled the latest teaser trailer for Early Man, a prehistoric family comedy starring Eddie Redmayne as an idiotic ancestor to modern man. Redmayne leads a cast full of stellar British talent, including Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall, Richard Ayoade, and comedian Johnny Vegas.

The film promises to provide a jovial take on ancient history, with Redmayne’s Dug struggling to come to terms with the end of the Stone Age (which consists of hunting rabbits in the woods) and the dawn of the Bronze Age (which apparently features sliced bread, organized sport and sliding doors). Lionsgate picked up the American distribution rights to Early Man earlier in the year, ensuring that a stateside release will take place.
