Back in 2009, the cartoonish crew of Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs helped save the world – and all of our most precious landmarks – from ultimate destruction caused by incredibly destructive, food-based weather patterns, but now they’re back to handle a whole new kind of crisis.
Set mere moments after the end of the first movie, the sequel begins as inventor Flint Lockwood (Hader) – who created the miraculous machine that can turn water into food – gets the opportunity of a lifetime when he is offered a chance to work for his childhood hero Chester V (Will Forte) at the world-leading technology company Live Corp. Traveling with his girlfriend/weathergirl Sam (Anna Faris), his dad (James Caan), the talking monkey Steve (Neil Patrick Harris), and friends Brent (Andy Samberg) and Officer Earl (Terry Crews), Flint movies to the town of San Franjose to start his new life, but finds himself called back to the island of Swallow Falls when he discovers that not only is his invention still operational, it’s actually started to produce living food animals.
With the new adventure set to hit theaters this weekend, I recently had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with Hader, Faris, Samberg and Crews at a press day in Los Angeles and talk about the new movie. Watch the videos below to find out what it was like for the returning stars to come back to this crazy animated world, what it was like for Crews to step into the shoes of Mr. T, and much more!
