Once again, it’s time to take a look at what next year has to offer us in terms of theatrical animation! Many of us felt that 2017 wasn’t a great year for animation (at least, not for mainstream animation), so we’re hoping that 2018 can make up for it!
Check out my list below of the upcoming theatrical animated films set for release next year! Bear in mind that these are only the animated films with verified US/Canada release dates and that any and all dates are subject to change at any time. Enjoy!

The first theatrical trailer for Aardman Animations’ upcoming film, Early Man, has debuted.
Early Man takes place during the “dawn of time” wherein a tribe of cavemen goes up against a Bronze Age City leader to save their home. The film features the voice talents of Eddie Redmayne, Maisie Williams, Tom Hiddleston, Timothy Spall, Richard Ayoade, and Johnny Vegas, amongst others. The film is set to hit American theaters on February 16, 2018.
While the trailer doesn’t have me super excited for the film, I still am interested in seeing it as it is an Aardman Animations film. Are you all interested in it?
We have another teaser trailer this week: the teaser trailer for Aardman Animations’ upcoming stop-motion film, Early Man.
According to Wikipedia, the film “tells the story of Dug, along with sidekick Hognob, who unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game, resulting in becoming the very first game of European football”. An interesting premise, to say the least, but like all Aardman films, I’m sure it’ll be very creative and funny.
The film features the voice talents of Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall, Richard Ayoade, and Johnny Vegas, amongst others. The film is set to be released to UK cinemas on January 26, 2018. No US release date has been announced yet.
What do you think of the teaser trailer and the film?

Are you excited for a Shaun the Sheep Movie 2? I actually am! I really enjoyed the first film and thought it was a wonderful tribute to the power of silence in film and animation!
