Get ready for an extra heaping of leftovers courtesy of the chaos caused by Flint Lockwood’s FLDSMDFR as “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” picks up right where the first film left off when it hits theaters this September 27, courtesy of Sony Pictures Animation.
With a stellar cast and some great, clever writing “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” (2009) quickly became a fan favorite (and a favorite here at the Geek offices). The upcoming sequel returns nearly every cast member including Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan, and Neil Patrick Harris and, while Phil Lord and Chris Miller (“21 Jump Street”) aren’t directing “Cloudy 2,” they’ve left the film in the capable hands of Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn (who both worked on the first film). While the departure of Mr. T as Officer Earl is a bummer, the film shouldn’t skip a beat with Terry Crews stepping into his shoes.
Yahoo! Movies debuted the latest trailer for “Cloudy 2,” which provides more detail on Flint and his friends’ return to Swallow Falls, where the FLRDSMDFR is not only still working, but it’s also producing some evil, mutated food beasts. Yikes!
Aside from the return of the great cast, music by Mark Mothersbaugh, and a new adventure for Flint Lockwood and his monkey Steve, you can expect a whole lot of gorgeously rendered animation, beautiful, vivid colors, and some very clever character design.
Check out the trailer below and look for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 in theaters in September!
