First Look: Sony Animation’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

The folks at Sony Pictures have provided us with the first still image from their upcoming CG-animated film Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Based on a popular children’s book by Judi and Ron Barrett, Cloudy tells the story of the town of Chewandswallow, where the weather comes three times a day, at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and is always food and beverages. The rain is juice and soup, the snow is mashed potatoes, and the wind brings hamburgers. However, when floods and storms of food come, the town must do something to survive.

Of the two main characters pictured above, Bill Hader has signed on to voice Flint Lockwood, “a young inventor who dreams of creating something that will improve everyone’s life.” Anna Faris plays Sam Sparks, “a weathergirl covering the phenomenon who hides her intelligence behind a perky exterior.” James Caan, Bruce Campbell, Mr. T and Tracy Morgan are also on the voice cast.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is scheduled to hit theaters September 18, 2009.
