Have you seen Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, the adorable 2009 animated film from the undeniably talented duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller? Of course you have. Not having seen it would be an atrocity. Seriously.
Imagine, if you will, that the lords of cinema were gracious enough to grant us a sequel. A return to Swallow Falls in which Flint (Bill Hader), his beloved Sam Sparks (Anna Faris) and their ragtag group of supporting characters returned to the scene of the previous crime, where food had begun to evolve and turn sentient. A land of Shrimpanzees and Tacodiles. No, this isn’t a fever-dream for your inner child, it’s an actual Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. Exactly the sort of thing this world needs, if you ask me.
Watch the latest trailer for Cloudy 2 below:
After the disastrous food storm in the first film, Flint and his friends are forced to leave the town. Flint accepts the invitation from his idol Chester V to join The Live Corp Company, which has been tasked to clean the island, and where the best inventors in the world create technologies for the betterment of mankind. When Flint discovers that his machine still operates and now creates mutant food beasts like living pickles, hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees and apple pie-thons, he and his friends must return to save the world.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is due in theaters September 27, 2013.
