USA Today has several new photos for Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2, some of which you can find below. The movie will be released on September 27 and features the voices of Bill Hader as Flint Lockwood, Anna Faris as Sam Sparks and James Caan as Flint's father.
Hader says the film "picks up very closely after first film ended." Lockwood has a renewed friendship with his father and is working for his idol, Chester V at the Live Corp Company with the best inventors in the world. He added: "They've won the battle but they haven't won the war yet. The war against food."
The FLDSMDFR, which turned water into food, "hasn't been destroyed like we thought it had," says Faris. She added that "it's been working away," producing food-animal hybrids. "There's been an evolution happening.
Hader said: "It's created 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." The food-imals include tacodiles, fruit cockatiels, cucumbirds, bananostriches, flamangoes, wildabeets and watermelophants.
Faris added: "I love the shrimpanzees. They're my favorite. They're sort of these wildly beautiful, giant shrimp that move like a chimpanzee. They sort of lope along with these huge shrimp arms."
Kristen Schaal joins the cast as Barb, an evolved chimpanzee that wears lipstick. Faris said: "I really love the addition of Barb. She's kind of a snarky, know-it-all chimpanzee, and aggressive. Sam and Barb sort of go at it a little bit."
Hader said that his three year old daughter Hannah is a fan of the first time. He said: "My daughter now loves it. It's like, Toy Story and Brave and How to Train Your Dragon, and then there's Daddy's Movie."
Faris also has a new baby, five-month old Jack, and hopes that he will be impressed by it. She said: "He probably won't care at all that it's Mommy's voice coming out of Sam Sparks. But it's nice that I have a little built-in audience."
