Aardman Animations brought us the story of a group of chickens escaping the coop and a cheese-loving inventor and his dog. Now the British animation studio behind Chicken Run and Wallace and Gromit is going back to prehistoric times for the story of a caveman and his sidekick pig, Hognob.
Nick Park rose to fame as the creator of accident-prone pooch Gromit and his faithful human companion Wallace, but that shouldn’t detract from the all-around wonderfulness of his other plaything, Shaun the Sheep. A curious barnyard mute with a taste for hijinks and impromptu adventure, Shaun got his own feature film in 2015, wherein he and his buddies ventured into the city to rescue their beloved farmer after a fit of amnesia convinces him that he’s actually a celebrity hairdresser. Critical praise, coupled with a robust take at the box-office, ensured that it wouldn’t be too long until audiences cross paths with Shaun again.
