With computer-animated family comedies being released in cinemas so frequently, it’s often easy to overlook gems unless they’re from Pixar, Blue Sky or Dreamworks. Thankfully Sony Pictures Animation’s 2009 hit Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs was able to stand out from the crowd, receiving a fair amount of success in the box office and widespread acclaim from critics.
Those hungry for more (forgive me for that pun) need salivate no further, as a new trailer for the upcoming sequel entitled (you guessed it), Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2 has been released, and from the looks of it, the film is set to continue the slapstick comedy and food related puns that made the original so lovable.
The sequel picks up right from where the first film ended, with Flint (Bill Hader) and his pals forced out of their hometown, but after they learn that the food making satellite has awakened and is producing living food beasts, they return in hope of saving the world.
Returning voice actors for the sequel include Anna Faris, James Caan, Andy Samberg and Neil Patrick Harris. New cast include Terry Crews, replacing Mr. T as Officer Earl and Kristen Schaal as Barb the orangutan.
Look out for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 when it opens in cinemas later this year.
