Fans have been given a first look into 'Early Man'.

Director Nick Park has unveiled the first teaser trailer for the animated prehistoric comedy adventure, which stars characters voiced by the likes of Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston and Maisie Williams.

Nick said: ''Today we get to meet Dug's tribe, a loveable bunch of misfits voiced by some exceptional British talent. They're essentially a group of inept cavemen and women including Treebor, played by Richard Ayoade, a gentle giant scared of his own shadow; Magma, Treebor's no nonsense mother voiced by Selena Griffiths and Mark Williams as Barry, whose best friend is a rock. Chief Bobnar, voiced by the brilliant Timothy Spall, leads the pack as their long-suffering leader, and father figure to his tribe of idiotic brutes.''

Nick has teamed up with Aardman Animations, who created the likes of the 'Shaun the Sheep Movie', 'Chicken Run' and 'Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit', and their new film 'Early Man' promises to be a hit just like the others.

The movie - which also stars Timothy Spall as Chief Bobnar as well as comedian Richard Ayoade, funnyman Johnny Vegas and Simon Greenall as members of the tribe - follows the story of a brave young caveman called Dug (Redmayne), who teams up with best pal Hognob and the rest of their tribe to fight the enemy Lord Nooth (Hiddleston) who threatens their very existence.

Meanwhile, Hiddleston previously took to Instagram to announce he was working on the film.

The photo was captioned: ''Been working with the great Nick Park and Aardman on their hilarious new film, @earlymanmovie. He is absolutely as brilliant as you might expect. Sometimes he makes me laugh so much I have to leave the sound studio for five minutes and calm down and have another go. (sic)''

'Early Man' is slated for release on January 26, 2018.
