FROM the ingenious creators of Wallace and Gromit, Shaun the Sheep, and Chicken Run comes a new animated adventure that will take film lovers back in time to a land filled with action, adventure, and prehistoric peril.
Aardman’s comedic tale follows Dug, a scrawny caveman with a big heart and can-do attitude, who, alongside his trusty pet hog sidekick, Hognob, must lead his tribe into the greatest fight of their lives against the mighty Lord Nooth, who invades the vibrant valley they call home. To save his clan’s way of life, Dug must travel to the “futuristic” Bronze City and defeat Lord Nooth at his own, very unusual, game: football.
It’s Stone Age versus Bronze Age in a fight for the ages, which is also suitable for all ages, and fun for all the family. Expect an action-packed battle of wits, laughs, gasps, and when the dust settles, an unforgettable stop-motion adventure that will stand the test of time.
