CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2 has already caused me to giggle constantly, and that’s just through the marketing. In this latest clip released by Sony Picture’s Animation, we are introduced to Barry the Strawberry, who will no doubt be hitting toy shelves in plush form before long. I already get a weird Minions from DESPICABLE ME vibe from the giant piece of fruit, and this clip shows the gang of returning characters encounter Barry for the first time.
Picking up where the last film left off (or should that be leftover?), the gang return to their hometown to find that it has become overrun by animal/food puns. It seems to be a bonkers take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World, or even Jules Verne’s Journey To The Centre Of The Earth.
CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2 is released on 27th September 2013 in the US and 25th October 2013 in the UK. It stars the vocal talents of Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Andy Samberg, Neil Patrick Harris, James Caan, and Terry Crews.
