First Look: Sony Animation's Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Ever since Sony Animation's Surf's Up bombed at the box office last summer, they've been rather quiet, working in secret on their next feature animation project called Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. The story in the movie, which is based on the children's book of the same name, follows a scientist who ties to solve world hunger but encounters a problem of global proportions, as food begins to fall from the sky. Thanks to Cinema Blend today, we've got our very first look at the style of the characters in the movie, and some giant ice cream in the background as well. Will it be a big Pixar contender? I highly doubt it…
Providing their voices for the film are Anna Faris, Andy Samberg, Bill Hader, James Caan, Tracy Morgan, and two special guests, Mr. T and Bruce Campbell. Check out the photo and stay tuned for more.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is co-directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the creators of the TV cartoon "Clone High". The screenplay was also co-written by both Lord and Miller and is based on Judi Barrett and Ron Barrett's book of the same name. Sony Pictures Animation is animating the film and will debut Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in theaters everywhere on September 18th, 2009 next fall.
