First Look: 'Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers' is Food 'Jurassic Park'
Later this fall, we'll return to the small town of Chewandswallow with the animated sequel Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers, the sequel to the adaptation of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs from directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The Sony Pictures Animation film surprised the hell out of me by being witty, fun and original, even with a children's book as source material (it departed greatly from the childhood story). Now we have our first look at the sequel which sees Bill Hader return to voice inventor Flint Lockwood as he's tasked with trying to contain the outbreak of his FLDSMDFR invention which is now running wild, creating living food animals like shrimpanzees, tacodiles, flamangoes and others. Look below!
Here's the first look at Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers from USA Today:
In case you hadn't noticed, the image is very reminiscent of Jurassic Park. In fact, Hader even says the food machine is creating, "these living food creatures that have basically taken over Flint's home, the island where he lives. That island is kind of like Jurassic Park." Notice how Sam Sparks (voice by Anna Faris) is wearing the same outfit as Laura Dern's character Dr. Ellie Sattler?
Honestly, I can't wait to see this sequel. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are executive producing this time around with a screenplay from Horrible Bosses scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein with Erica Rivinoja ("South Park"). The sequel is directed by Cody Cameron (a story artist on Shrek, Madagascar, Surf’s Up and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) and Kris Pearn (head of story on Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Arthur Christmas story supervisor) and arrives September 27th, 2013.
