Sony has just announced September 27, 2013 as the new release date for the much-anticipated sequel to Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, titled Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers, bringing it much closer compared to the previous schedule (early 2014). It seems that Sony is starting to schedule their animated features on specific times of the year, since the new release date follows the same weekend that the studio has released the Genndy Tartakovsky blockbuster Hotel Transylvania this year.
Cloudy 2: Revenge of the Leftovers is directed by Cody Cameron (Shrek, Madagascar, Surf’s Up and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) and Kris Pearn (with a Chance of Meatballs, Arthur Christmas) and produced by Kirk Bodyfelt.
Cloudy 2 picks up where the first film left off, with Flint Lockwood’s genius finally recognized and appreciated, he gets an invitation from his idol Chester V to join The Live Corp Company, where the best and brightest inventors in the world create technologies for the betterment of mankind. Chester’s right-hand-gal – and one of his greatest inventions – is the highly evolved orangutan with a human brain, Barb, who is also devious, manipulative and likes to wear lipstick. When Flint discovers that his infamous machine is now creating mutant food beasts, he and his friends must battle hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, apple pie-thons, double bacon cheesepiders and other food creatures to save the world again!
