Lionsgate has dropped the latest trailer for Early Man, a new adventure of prehistoric proportions hailing from the creators of Wallace and Gromit — and it could be the best thing since the invention of sliced bread.

Directed by Academy Award-winning helmer Nick Park (Shaun the Sheep, Chicken Run), Early Man is a new epic claymation film that takes place during the dawn of time when prehistoric creatures (including rabbits) roamed the earth. 

The movie follows a courageous caveman named Dug (played by Fantastic Beasts’ Eddie Redmayne) and his pet hog (and best friend) Hognob as they unite his inept band of rabbit-hunting Stone Age cavemen against the mighty Lord Nooth (voiced by Tom Hiddleston) and his Bronze Age City in order to save their home. 

From the look of the trailer (which looks amazing), Early Man should make fans of Aardman Animations' signature stop-motion style and brand of humor very happy.

The stellar cast also includes Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall, Richard Ayoade, Selina Griffiths, Johnny Vegas, Mark Williams, Gina Yashere, Simon Greenall and Richard Webber.

Early Man arrives in theaters on Feb. 16, 2018.
