Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs has to be one of my favourite animations from the last 5 years and when there was an announcement of a sequel, it made me very happy! What made me even more happy was when I got to chat with Directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn about their new movie, how it’s changed and what we can expect from this second installment.
They describe the first movie as more of an ‘disaster movie’ where as this film takes on a lot more from the ‘monster movie’ harking back to the likes of Jurassic Park and King Kong. We get to hear how they came up with the designs of the new creatures and my personal highlight was talking more in depth about the character of ‘Steve’ played by Neil Patrick Harris in both the first and second movie and how his interaction on screen can go unnoticed but when you do notice him, you can’t stop trying to work out what he’ll do next!
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is in UK cinemas this Friday 25th October. Go and see it because I know you’ll love it. You can see our review of the movie here.
