Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s 2009 animated film Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is a delightfully goofy and incredibly fun comedy, and I’m very much looking forward to the upcoming sequel. We’ve seen a handful of images from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 that tease some great new food/animal hybrid creatures called “food-imals,” and now a new image from the film has been released online to announce that the first trailer will be unveiled on February 27th. A new image will apparently be released every day leading up to the trailer drop. Though Lord and Miller are only producing the follow-up (they’ve been busy with 21 Jump Street and the Lego movie), the film looks to be in good hands with directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn (who worked on the first movie) and screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses).
Hit the jump to watch the trailer, and check back here on Collider next Wednesday for the trailer debut. The film features the voices of Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Andy Samberg, Will Forte, Neil Patrick Harris, and Terry Crews. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 opens on September 27th.
Here’s the synopsis for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2:
In the wake of the disastrous food storm at the end of the first movie, Flint Lockwood and friends are forced to leave their town of Swallow Falls. But when it is discovered that sentient food beasts have overrun the island, they are asked to return to save the world…again.
