'Game of Thrones' Star Maisie Williams Joins Aardman's 'Early Man'
Aardman Animations and StudioCanal have announced that Maisie Williams has joined Nick Park's upcoming prehistoric comedy adventure film titled Early Man. The Game of Thrones star joins Eddie Redmayne (who plays Dug) and will voice Goona.
Goona is the gallant and indomitable rebel who befriends the film's hero, Dug, and helps steer him through the clash of the Stone Age and Bronze Age civilisations. “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," said Park.
“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," Williams said.
Tom Hiddleston also shares his voice for the film, which is described as: 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. Early Man unleashes an unforgettable cast of hilarious new characters.
