“Today we get to meet Dug’s tribe, a loveable bunch of misfits voiced by some exceptional British talent. They’re essentially a group of inept cavemen and women including Treebor, played by Richard Ayoade, a gentle giant scared of everyone’s shadow including his own; Magma, Treebor’s no nonsense overbearing mother as voiced by Selena Griffiths and Mark Williams as Barry, whose best friend is a rock who often gets the better of him in arguments.
Chief Bobnar, voiced by the brilliant Timothy Spall, leads the pack as their eternally patient leader, acting as a father figure to his tribe of brutes.”
The film is currently in production in Bristol, with Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston and Maisie Williams providing the voices for the main characters. Other names joining Dug's tribe include comic actor Johnny Vegas and comedian Gina Yashere. More cast details will be released in the coming weeks.
