Maisie Williams joins Aardman’s Early Man voice cast

by Paul Heath

Game Of Thrones and Doctor Who actress Maisie Williams has joined the voice cast of Aardman’s next animated feature film Early Man.

Maisie joins the cast voicing Goona, the gallant and indomitable rebel who befriends the film’s hero Dug (Eddie Redmayne), and helps steer him through the clash of the Stone Age and Bronze Age civilisations.

Director Nick Park said of the casting: “Maisie is a terrific actress, and she is of course no stranger to embodying a valiant heroine.   I’m most excited to see her breathe life into Goona – I know she’ll be the perfect ally to Eddie’s Dug”.

Maisie added:  “I’m a huge Aardman fan – having the chance to work with Nick Park is a dream come true, especially as I get to voice such a fantastic character as Goona.  I can’t wait for audiences to meet her”.

Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, Early Man tells the story of how plucky caveman Dug, along with sidekick Hognob unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game. It also marks Nick Park’s first feature film since Academy Award® winning Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.

Tom Hiddleston is also amongst the cast, voicing Lord Nooth.

The film will be released on January 26th, 2018.
