Sony Pictures has released our first look at the Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs sequel, Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers. I loved the first film, it was surprisingly funny and extremely entertaining. These first images give us a look at the crazy food world that we'll see in the sequel. It includes Bananostrich, Cantalope, Cucumbirds, Flamangos, Fruit Cocktail, Hippotatomus, Sasquash, Watermelophant, Wild Scallions, Wildebeets, Barry, and Tomato. You'll find close up images of these below.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller are only producing this time around, but the film is being directed by Cody Cameron (story artist on the first movie) and Kris Pearn (head of story on the first one). The script was written by John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein, and Erica Rivinoja.
The lead voice cast from the first film returns, including Bill Hader as inventor Flint Lockwood; Anna Faris as brainy weather girl Sam Sparks; James Caan as Flint’s technophobic dad, Tim Lockwood; Andy Samberg as Swallow Falls’ local celebrity “Baby” Brent; Neil Patrick Harris as Steve the gummy bear-loving monkey; and Benjamin Bratt as Sam’s mild mannered cameraman Manny. Then there's Terry Crews who has replaced Mr. T in the role of Earl, the town cop. Here's the synopsis...
Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers picks up where Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs left off. Inventor Flint Lockwood’s genius is finally being recognized as he’s invited by his idol Chester V (Will Forte) to join The Live Corp Company, where the best and brightest inventors in the world create technologies for the betterment of mankind. Chester’s right-hand-gal – and one of his greatest inventions – is Barb (Kristen Schaal), a highly evolved orangutan with a human brain, who is also devious, manipulative and likes to wear lipstick.
It’s always been Flint’s dream to be recognized as a great inventor, but everything changes when he discovers that his most infamous machine – which turns water into food – is still operating and is now creating mutant food beasts. With the fate of humanity in his hands, Flint and his friends must embark on a dangerously delicious mission, battling hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, apple pie-thons, double bacon cheespiders and other food creatures to save the world… again!
The sequel is set to be released on September 27th!
